What is more exceptional in our town is the difficulty one may experience there in dying. "Difficulty," perhaps, is not the right word; "discomfort" would come nearer. Being ill is never agreeable, but there are towns that stand by you, so to speak, when you are sick; in which you can, after a fashion, let yourself go."
The Plague brings together love, heartbreak, sacrifice, compassion and survivorship. Dr. Bernard Rieux is an Algerian doctor who puts himself at risk to help the people around him when the plague tore their town apart. The citizens of Oran stood strong as rats took over their homes and killed the people they loved. Choices that were made shows how selfless humans are sometimes and you'll have to read to see what happens next.
