Jean-Paul Sartre's views on existentialism are brilliantly conveyed through his story of three strangers, put together in hell by fate. Written in French, I found Huis Clos to be one of the best plays I have read (or watched) in a long time. Sartre's brilliant use of symbols and rhetorical techniques nicely complements his theme of existentialism. An English version, No Exit, is also available but the beauty of the French language makes the original French version superior. If you are fluent in French, read it. If not, the English version will suffice.

"Huis Clos" is one of the few books that actually illustrates a version of hell. Most people wouldn't think to write about such a touchy subject. Likewise, most people accept the typical hell full of fire and torture chambers as what it will be like. Few contemplate the possibility that it might be different, as well as refuse to think about what else it could be. This book made me think about it a little more than I imagined. What if having to be around the same two people for eternity really is hell? What if hell was based on the individual? My personal hell would be eternity on a stair-master. And the only music would be Michael Bolton...karaoke-style.

I am french, and Huis Clos is one of the most importants books i read when i was a teenager, looking for truth about adult behavior... It's really intellectual, but not artificial, and makes you think a lot about what is going on between people, and what you learned growing up.
