Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jonathan Davis

Classics • 4.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1942

Jonathan Davis is a masterful reader whose style meshes beautifully with Albert Camus's French classic. Davis excels with novels full of foreign words and names because his voice has an elegance that brings out the subtleties in every syllable. Camus's existential novel is told from the perspective of Mersault, an Algerian who kills a man and is tried for his crime. Using nuanced inflection, Davis brings out Mersault's lack of emotion relating to his mother's death at the book's beginning and the events that subsequently swallow his life, allowing the reader to focus on his lack of conscience and passion. As a bonus, the audiobook also features a fascinating interview with Professor Martin Stone, a scholar of existentialism. D.J.S.
