Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Justina | 2/9/2014

    " The strangest book I have ever read. But still good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emma K. | 2/4/2014

    " naturally the writing style is pretty old fashioned, but this book grew on me as I read it. The nightmare it describes is just as applicable to the present day "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maria Skachkova | 2/3/2014

    " Whilst the story despite being fiction is true for many, I simply struggled reading this book, the language just seemed off. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grete | 1/12/2014

    " The beginning was slow and I thought I might die while reading it but at half way to the end or somewhere there, it got seriously interesting and I liked it, making me feel like the ending came too fast. "

    " Das schlechteste Buch, das ich je in meinem Leben gelesen habe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Max | 1/3/2014

    " When I first read it (I was 17) I lay nights awake thinking how someone could write a book this perfect. Kafka is for me some kind of untouchable God figure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Raymond | 12/27/2013

    " Kafka's, "The Trial" delivers a subtle, magnificently crafted, philosophical inquiry into such ideas as morality, the absurd, existential angst and fear of the unknown. It is one of those novels that flows like a wave and then brings you crashing into a jagged cliff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber Todoroff | 12/14/2013

    " Kafka really made me feel the pain of beaurocracy. thats for sure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greg Hovanesian | 3/29/2013

    " If you've only seen the movie by Orson Welles, you should read the book. Welles made Kafka's baby into Welles' baby. If you want to watch a movie that corresponds to the book better, check out Martin Scorsese's seldom watched After Hours, directed in the '80s. A perfect nod to Kafka. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jan Zapal | 5/3/2012

    " Do I need to add anything. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louisa Wood | 7/22/2011

    " Totally agree with Haines - best read as a comedy... But it IS very dark and as others have alluded to it can be quite disturbing... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nada | 5/17/2011

    " intriguing since the first word.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cpury | 5/10/2011

    " When I first read it (I was 17) I lay nights awake thinking how someone could write a book this perfect. Kafka is for me some kind of untouchable God figure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 5/5/2011

    " I recall seeing and reading many similar cases in history books and documentaries, where people were just dragged out of their homes, detained for weeks or even months when there was no evident proof to link them to any civil crimes. Detention without conviction.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 4/25/2011

    " One of my favorite books, EVER. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shelby | 4/11/2011

    " OK, I glad I went through the experience of reading this book. Now I feel like I need to attend a lecture about it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tamara | 4/8/2011

    " I believe we read this in History in 9th grade at Taft... I remember being disturbed, in a good way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nichole | 3/29/2011

    " I like Kafka, but this book was so roundabout and frustrating that I literally got dizzy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Radwa | 3/29/2011

    " Though Kafka died before finishing the book,but it is definitely a masterpiece!!
