The Trial by Franz Kafka

Review: The Trial by Franz Kafka

The Trial by Franz Kafka

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I picked up this book a few years ago and put it down because I got too Kafka-ed by the mazery. I just couldn’t put it together, couldn’t understand why sentences were written the way that that were. Thank goodness I gave it a second go. For me, real liftoff happened about halfway thru, maybe that’s when I figured out how to plug in the allegory. Then, what was a series of pull-my-hair-out mucky predicaments turned into a real thing, a mysterious and wonderful thing, I don’t know how Kafka did that – make something so heavy and convoluted shoot out the other end light and evasive. Magic.
