Fred Kohn I am currently reading it and am finding that I have to go back and reread certain sections. Also, I cannot read very much without putting it down. Like many existentialist novels, most of the action takes place inside the main character’s head, which makes it xartre different than most novels— especially the ones being written these days.

Did depressing, existential works like this contribute to other readers’ confusion about life with no meaning? Sartre was renown for his negative ideas, famously quoted as saying: His point though was that by stressing the meaninglessness of life, we are ‘free’ to create that meaning ourselves ‘authentically’.

You’d need to check that out. In truth this novel doesn’t take us past the first negative stage really and I was told at college that he was probably developing his ideas literally as he was writing this novel.

Funny that he was a really social guy always round the Parisien cafes with a reputation as being generous with his tips! More interesting still, is that he was particularly ugly and in recognising his own ugliness and I feel that he as inspired in his negative thinking on humanity Only my ekdl though! Hope you weren’t too depressed by it!?

Nausea (novel) – Wikipedia

Lists with This Book. This book is not yet ;aul on Listopia. It is sickening and dark and so terribly everyday that it gets inside you if you let it.

Sartre writes beautifully and describes the physical world in such incredible detail, that if pau, are a reader, and even more if you are a writer, you want to keep going and never put it down, but if you are not emotionally stable enough to handle the fact that you might have done nothing but existing, don’t read this book. If you are jaded by love don’t read this book.

If you almost lost your self in desire, kean read this book. Probably nobody should read this book. Then again, if you are like me and obsessed with words and the art that comes from darkness and the study of lonliness, then this is a work of genius. Its beautifully written, terrifying and intense. So go ahead, but at your own risk, and when you freak the hell out, don’t tell anyone that it was me who recommended that you mess with Sartre.

Antoine Roquentin — The protagonist of the novel, Antoine is a former adventurer who has been living det Bouville for three years. Antoine does not keep in touch with family, and has no friends. He is a loner at heart and often likes to listen to other people’s conv He is a loner at heart and often likes to listen to other people’s conversations and examine their actions. He settles in the fictional Ekwl seaport town of Bouville to finish his research on the life of an 18th-century political figure.

But during the winter satrre a “sweetish sickness,” as he calls nausea, increasingly impinges on almost jeqn he does or enjoys: Even though he at times admits to trying to find some sort of solace in the presence of others, he also exhibits signs of boredom and lack of interest when interacting with people.

Antoine does not think highly of himself: I cannot even decide whether it is handsome or ugly. I think it is ugly because I have been told so. He eventually starts to think he does not even exist: Was I a mere figment of the imagination?

This small novel is no doubt an important work and essential reading for philosophical purposes. I remember reading Camus’s ‘The Stranger and Sartre’s Nausea back to back, similar in some ways, not in others, The Stranger lingered for weeks, Nausea drifted Third time lucky I remember reading Sqrtre ‘The Stranger and Sartre’s Nausea back to back, similar in some ways, not in others, The Stranger lingered for weeks, Nausea drifted away.

But for whatever reason, this time around things just clicked. Maybe it helped reading ‘The Age of Reason’ to finally grasp him, the fact I am a fan of Simone de Beauvoir should jea looking at Sartre in a better light, after all he took her under his wing during her creative days at ;aul.

They enjoyed each others company, and this goes to show men and women can become great friends without becoming lovers.

srtre Kafka always questioned the meaning of life. Sartre only questions the fact of existence, which is an order of reality much more immediate than the human and social elaborations of the life that is on this side of life. It is a question here of nothing but the spiritual results of solitude.

They are analyzed with a rigor of thought and expression that will no doubt seem intolerable to most readers. Now I see the light, a philosophical novelist of the first order. Since Voltaire, we know that in France the philosophical novel has been a light genre, not far from the fable.


The law of the man who is rigorously alone pual not the fear of nothingness, but the fear of existence. This discovery takes us far.

If his first novel was a work without a solution, by which I mean that it no more opens up any solutions for the universe than the principal works of Dostoevsky, it would perhaps be a singular success without a successor. Jean-Paul Sartre who throughout the novel paints a portrait of a great bourgeois city of social caricature, and has gifts as a novelist that are too precise and too cruel not to result in great denunciations, not to completely open up into reality, a reality I would rather not see.

A seminal work that I will come to appreciate even more over the space of time. View all 13 comments. They should stock this thing in the bible section. Or the adult erotica section, because either way it gives you some pretty intense experiences. It’s about this red-haired writer guy Antoine Roquentin, who’s recently been overwhelmed with an intolerable awareness of his own existence. Like, a soul-crushing, mind-blowing, nausea-inducing kind of intolerable.

It’s pretty awe Okay, wow. And the best thing – the best. Sartre, the fiend, satisfied me in ways that Dostoevsky and Camus never could. I mean, when has an existentialist exposition ever been made so readable?

So ironic and captivating, so funny – there were times I actually laughed out loud. Moreover, Sartre gets me. I honestly cannot describe the feeling of holding a crummy paperback filled with words written over 50 years ago, and finding one of your own thoughts in amongst those of a fictional character.

I guess it’s what Christians must feel like when they read the bible. Or what middle-aged single women feel while reading a particularly steamy passage of Passion in the Prairie. This is the kind of book you could read again and again, discovering some new detail every time, and getting something different out of it with every read. View all 3 comments. If you live in Florida, lets say Ft.

Lauderdale, don’t read this book That’s my only warning. Otherwise, it’s a great book. View all 4 comments. Written in the late 30’s, Sartre’s study of a man who analyze his feelings, bearings on a world that makes him sick. This book has so much identity to it, that it is almost a brand name for ‘youth. Unless it’s Starbucks, and then it is just Roquentin se siente consternado por el conocimiento de su futilidad, una bolsa de huesos sin finalidad. Roquentin se ve disgustado por la imperturbable falta de vida de los objetos y de las mismas personas.
