First published in 1925, The Trial tells the story of a man arrested for an unknown crime by a remote, inaccessible authority and his struggle for control over the increasing absurdity of his life. One of Franz Kafka's best-known works, The Trial has been variously interpreted as an examination of political power, a satirical depiction of bureaucracy, and a pessimistic religious parable. Left unfinished at the time of Kafka's 1924 death, The Trial is nevertheless a trenchant depiction of the seemingly incomprehensible nature of existence and a fascinating exploration of the universal issues of justice, power, freedom, and isolation.

    " Interesting philosophy and politic, but too slow and dated for me. "

    " A unique and universally relevant book about one person facing the opressiveness of a community, "The Trial" is an extremely well written companion to suchn sociologically relevant masterpieces as Albert Camus' "The Outsider". "

    " I gave this one more star than my enjoyment of it alone would suggest it deserves. Frankly, if you are already familiar with the premise (and who isn't?), it's a bit of a snooze-fest. The extra star is just a retrospective nod to how powerful this book would have been, especially in the Eastern Bloc, at the time. "
