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 death in 1924, 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.

    " I'm sorry my dear Kafka but it was too predictable for me. A review in Armenian coming soon. "

    " 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. "

    " Amazing... I wish he has finished it by himself, the end is obviously not written by him "

    " Kafka doet zijn naam alle eer aan. Alhoewel het boek geestig is kan het mij spijtig genoeg niet tot het einde blijven boeien. Pagina 70 volstaat voor mij voorlopig als kennismaking. "
