Plague Update: The Sermon

For everyone “dying” to know what happens next in The Plague— last night was a bit of a snooze. The town priest gave a sermon where first he was like, “The plague is all y’all’s fault!” and then went on to be a little nicer about it. It was raining during the sermon. Then the rain stopped and the townspeople went home.

The doctor was walking around lancing boils when he ran into ol’ whats-his-name, the guy from earlier in the book. They talked for awhile about stuff.

At this point I was getting a little bored, wondering when more people were gonna die. But then there was a commotion out in the streets! People were trying to escape from town! They wanted to break out of Plague City, USA (France).

At that point, konk overtook me and I had to sleep.

More updates later if I remember anything else … this has been your daily installment of The Plague, by Albert Camus … getting pumped for an H1N1 pandemic … everyone better read this book … recognize …
