If you also have depression, have experienced an existential crisis, and have used psychedelics, then it would probably help. The novel is quite psychological and you get the sense that the main character is very depressed and can't quite understand the meaning of things.
I think he also has trouble defining himself in regards to other people and objects. It is part of the novel that he has these thoughts and is very observant of things, almost to the point where life appears dull and mundane. It leaves you asking, "why do I need to know this?

Sartre was renown for his negative ideas, famously quoted as saying: 'Hell is other people'. His point though was that by stressing the meaninglessness of life, we are 'free' to create that meaning ourselves 'authentically'. You'd need to check that out. In truth this novel doesn't take us past the first negative stage really and I was told at 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 in his negative thinking on humanity Only my thoughts though!

It is Sartre's first novel  and, in his own opinion, one of his best works. The novel takes place in 'Bouville' homophone of Boue-ville , literally, 'Mud town' a town similar to Le Havre ,  and it concerns a dejected historian, who becomes convinced that inanimate objects and situations encroach on his ability to define himself, on his intellectual and spiritual freedom , evoking in the protagonist a sense of nausea. In Sartre was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature , but he ultimately declined to accept it. The Nobel Foundation recognized him "for his work which, rich in ideas and filled with the spirit of freedom and the quest for truth, has exerted a far-reaching influence on our age.
