In the original French I trust, Si. ;) I found Sartre a tedious writer but an interesting philosopher. Have you read any Camus? A far superior writer in my opinion and only a philosophical half-step away from Sartre.

Why of course :D ;). I like it so far. It's quite slow, but I think that's necessary for how much Sartre is putting into depicting his characters. I haven't yet, but I'll be sure to move onto Camus soon enough.

Is Camus the one who inspired The Cure's 'Killing An Arab' song? I've read that, decent book actually but I know nowt about him otherwise, especially if I've got the wrong fella ;lol:
