The Plague

The Plague reminded me of Blindness. Both deal with the changes in a society as they are isolated with disease. However, Camus takes a more realistic approach that further looks into the long term impact. In the end, life is existential voyage, and reverts back to the norm after traumatic events.

The Plague is longer than The Stranger. This is probably a result of dealing with an entire town instead of a single person. Philosophically, they are both similar works.
