The Stranger by Albert Camus

Speaking of The Stranger, __________, there is something about the passages concerning Oscar Fate's mother's death and funeral that reminded me of Meursault's mother's death at the beginning of that novel. Perhaps you can help me put my finger on that.

One thing is for sure, __________. The passages concerning Fate's mother's death and funeral are written in a "flat" way, very similar to Camus's style in that book. (I need to think of a better word than "flat," but right now I cannot.)
