The Plague by Albert Camus
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Very well written I loved the language but had trouble getting into the book. Also very depressing.
Oran an Algerian port is isolated due to an outbreak of the bubonic plague. Many lovers and families are separated when the gates to the city are shut, during the course of the book loved ones are ripped away from their families and taken to isolation wards when they show plague symptoms and burials have become hurried affairs with few witnesses. But the courage of those who choose to fight the plague and care for their fellow man shines through.
