I've read them both.
I'd recommend Defoe first.
I'd also recommend Defoe.
Had to do The Plague (La Peste) for A Level French and absolutely hated it!
neither ever ever ever
I don't know which is best for starters, but The Plague, is certainly de notre temps
Wasnt Defoes tome not just a tissue of urban legends(of the 17th century),a lot of the things he described didnt happen and were just rumours among rumours.As for Camus...probably another tissue of lies and mistruths.
What about One Hundred Years of Solitude - could be where we’re heading?
Neither by the sound of them!
Sandy, whichever way round you read them, read 'The Plague Dogs' (Richard Adams) afterwards, for a bit of 'light' relief.

Just take up Tolstoy or Mikhail Sholokhov's Trilogy (which is brilliant)
who ever said defoe made it up
he was writing I think 1685 and wasnt there
so he had to ask people to fink back to 1665
I fink
