what is this book about? i was looking at quotes for the movie jarhead for another thread and i saw this:
Sgt. Siek: Swofford? Swofford?
Anthony 'Swoff' Swofford: Yeah?
Sgt. Siek: What the fuck? You sick?
Anthony 'Swoff' Swofford: No, sir. I just got this stomach-thing...
Sgt. Siek: Staff Sergenat Siek. I'm with Surveillance and Target Acquisition. STA. I heard it took six guys to pull that little branding trick on you. And your file says that you ain't dumb either. So you better get unsick most motha fucking rikey-tick, cause' there's a chance that you could be a scout sniper!
Sgt. Siek: [picks up Swofford's book] What the fuck is this?
Sgt. Siek: "The stranger from Camus". That's some heavy dope right there, marine!
i wanna read 'heavy dope' it sound intriguing
Your troll detection skills fail.
Haven't read the book but it does look vaguely interesting....*puts it on his 'to read' list*
There's no such book as "The Stranger From Camus."
Albert Camus, a French philosopher, wrote a novel called "The Stranger" which is really good.
And it's "heavy dope."
I will be the judge on the true weight of the dope.
I'd say a must have for anyone delving into philosophy, especially existentialism.
It's also just a powerful story, regardless of whether or not you pay attention to the themes.
