Free is good. Thanks for posting. I have read Le Petit Prince and Candide. The first one is okay for beginners, but I think the second one will be a bit more challenging.

I'm not familiar with the other two. Oh, I just took a look at Huis Clos. It's a one-act play by Sartre. That guy was super weird, but entertaining. This one seems like a fairly easy read. I managed to get through the first scene in a few minutes but I had to look up a couple of words. The humor is dry, but not too predictable.

You certainly have interesting tastes in literature :)


haha! Je l'ai fini. Une histoire pourrie, mais j'ai bien aimé le lire. C'était intense, mais amusant, sans aucun doute.

"L'enfer, c'est les autres." Bon, c'est sujet d'actualité. Avec le confinement, on apprend qu'il y a certainement des moments stressants ...


Merci pour cette idée !


Merci beaucoup! J'aime Sartre et sa philosophie, ce sera la première fois que je lirai ses livres en français Aussi Albert Camus, son livre 'La Peste' ironique en ce moment. Je pense que vous apprécierez cet auteur
