The Stranger: Part 1

This book has been widely discussed from a philosophical point of view, being Camus a key exponent of existencialism. But beyond any philosophical analysis, this seems to be a book about feelings - or maybe for that matter, about not feeling, about how life is lived or just passed by, about how the world keeps moving despite the protagonist apparent lack of interest and respect for that movement.  
We would love to hear how did it make you feel this first part in which the protagonist is introduced and his crime takes place. What do you think about him? What about the people that surrounds him? How do they react to his general apathy? Do they even realize?
