Didn't want to read Kafka but finally gave in as I passed 50. Yes, amazing, but not my favorite genre.

I love Kafka and just I first read Metamorphosis in college and it disturbed me so much that I loved the psychology of his writing.... Well then I found his last published work that was only made known to the world following his death and what's even more amazing is that he never wanted it published at all! I could not stop reading it and last week I was scanning through Netflix movies and I see The Trial - an Orson Welles adaptation of Kafka's final work! Anthony Perkins plays the lead so if you have Netflix look it up!

I did find this book a little hard going at times, it's a strange story but I did kind of like it. Definitely worth a read, although expect it to be a bit of a trial at times!

Kafka has laid all that he had in mind about the perils of human society in this very book. It provokes thoughts and questions the readers about many themes, which is why as Camus perfectly said it and I quote, "It shows everything, but confirms nothing." Thought the story disappointed me and now that I know, this is an unfinished work. A good one-time read. It is apparent you will be exhausted after reading it.
