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 very 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 paaul that by stressing the meaninglessness of life, we are ‘free’ to create that meaning ourselves ‘authentically’. You’d need to check that out. Paull truth this novel doesn’t take us past the first negative stage really and I was told paup 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 sarttre his negative thinking on humanity Only my thoughts though!

Now here is a story about a really pathetic character, Antoine Roquentin, absolutely paralyzed and nauseated by his intellectual power and gravitas. He wanted nothing more e,el to be a discrete, understandable, limited object that keeps fresh and accessible the meaning that pxul life may have had in the past, and that other people were still enjoying all around him.

He is lost, has become immured eoel the entanglements and knots of his serpentine logic that is coiling in and constricting the life kean of him. Reminds me of G. The madman is the sartge who has lost everything sartrs his reason. This book begins with Antoine journaling his thoughts to try and lend resiliency and consistency to a growing abstraction in his ideas and sensations. He wants to hold on to his leaking life, crystallize his moments and finalize their meaning.


I must accept their death; I must even will it. I know that it is unique, irreplaceable, and yet I would not raise a finger to stop it from being annihilated. There pauul one chance in the story where he saw a spark of hope to rekindle an old romance, and he actually became excited about it, but he loses the girl again, and falls back on his bitter-sweet companion, nausea. The veneer melts, the shining velvety scales…explode everywhere at my look, they split and pul.

Roquentin sees no purpose for his insight, except to lament that he is alone in his supreme intelligence looking down on the silly dummies all around him. But, those silly dummies are happy, sooo…. I suddenly lost the appearance of a man and they saw a crab running backwards out of this human sattre.

Now the unmasked intruder has fled: Which came first, societal rejection or self-loathing? This story, however disgusting an impression the character makes upon the reader, is jdan a meaningless story. It is meant as a warning against modernist idealism, and as a call to action to think about what our response will be to this postmodern quagmire of antiquated values, traditions, and explanations of the meaning of life.

Does Sartre offer any answers here? But he poses a pretty damn good question that might inspire people to start the search. It also is a warning to all erudites who think knowledge can ever bring happiness. Who knows, it could just be a bad thyroid. What do you think I am? Sartre, your warning is duly noted, my friend.

I have found navel gazing in its purest form, sarttre I have stared into its whiney, shrivelled heart. This novel had some fantastic ideas and concepts behind it, but blimey did it test my patience at times.

Nausea by Jean-Paul Sartre is short, it’s weird, and it’s depressing. None of these things are necessarily negatives in a book — ser are a lot of similarities here to Notes from Underground and The Stranger, both which I really enjoyed.

In Nausea, though, I never found myself convinced by the protagonist’s struggles. He felt more like an abstraction than a person.

While the Underground Man was clearly isolated and confused and the story around him a bit polemic, his problems were human and relatable, if extreme. Antoine Roquentin, however, felt as though he had been created with the sole purpose of exploring existentialism, which wouldn’t necessarily be a problem, but every problem he faces is metaphysical and absurdly satrre. This means the human drama which is also explored comes across as hollow because we just don’t know him or anyone else in this novel as a person, only as walking ideologies.


There were some interesting observations about the way we should appreciate existence on a moment to moment basis, but it all felt more like a message with a story than a story with a message. I’ll be reading Sartre’s non-fiction if I pick up his writing again, as at least that way I’ll know exactly what I’m in for. This book could’ve been pages shorter.

I’d lose the first pages of this book as they don’t have much information. Dry reading, Dder guess. I had about 10 paragraphs altogether that I liked.

The other times I was just annoyed of Monsieur Antoine thinking that he’s the only one with Nausea, thinking of himself eekel something special. We’ve all read these books. Why did I carry on reading? I’ll be honest – out of spite. I wanted to see if the story concludes in anything. The final pages gave me a sort of “Heureka I’d lose the first pages of psul book eer they don’t have much information.

The final pages eke me a sort of “Heureka! That’s what I was looking jen in this book” thought. Maybe, just maybe, it isn’t the fact that Sartre is super intelligent and thus “Nausea” also, but it’s just overhyped?

This was a very difficult read for me to get through. I decided to only go at it in very short sections at a time or else my eyes would just glaze over. I did not have a good grasp of “existentialism” going in, and having read this, I have only a very basic understanding.

I highlighted a few passages for further review, but as of right now, I just have a great feeling of relief that it is over, and really who really cares what I think about this book? The story of Antoine Roquentin and his search for meaning, Ekell is a key text for twentieth century existentialism, and a pain in the arse for me. The existentialists were a set of spoilt, whining sods who needed to get proper jobs, but instead dressed in black, struck poses, chain-smoked, drank too much and worried about being and nothingness, mainly in Paris.

Very popular with students.
