    " This is the first book by Franz Kafka I have read, and to be honest, were it not for the 1001 Books to Read Before You Die list, it would quite possibly be my last. The value of The Trial as an addition to the literary canon is unquestionable, but I did not enjoy reading it. It raises great and classic questions about the law and judicial system and what role they should be permitted to play in the lives of people, as well as about the nature of guilt, but it never resolves them. I understand, in a way, that that is part of the beauty of the work, but I still found the reading tedious. I also understand that it is an unfinished work that the author never wished to be published, but my understanding is that was the way he felt about everything he wrote. Most of all, I think the thing I found disappointing was the extent to which the book felt dated. It did not have the timelessness and relevance which I expected, and I think that is the root of my disappointment. "

    " He didn't know why he was on trial and I didn't know why I was reading about it. Neither of us received an answer. There's no story here, only writing to write. Regardless of how good a writer Kafka is or isn't, writing just to write is a waste of everyone's time. "

    " Probably the greatest existential novel (and I love my existential novels). Creepy, paranoid, merciless, and often quite funny. Like Alice in Wonderland if the Red Queen executed everyone. "

    " Fascinating commentary on what happens when a culture bureaucratizes law to the point that no one involved in the legal process has any idea how it works. Also reinforces just how important habeas corpus is (and what can happen when that right is eroded, which makes this a particularly important book for Americans to read in 2012). Having read Philip K. Dick and William S Boroughs before getting to Kafka, I was prepared for the...surrealist(?)...which is the best term I can think of for it...plot structure and characterization. They were nodding to him in that way. Very important proto-dystopian work. I wish I could recommend this book, because it's important, but ultimately too alienating to be accessible to most. "
