A true literary genius. Read as many of Kafka's short stories and books as you can, especially The Trial, which, in light of the way Britain seems to be heading into a kind of bureaucratic-manic state these days, is in many ways a more prophetic book than Orwell's 1984.
Read this book today. Kafka was a true literary genius. For me this book is about insecurity, obsession, and a dire warning about the perils of bureaucracy. The whole thing is utterly fantastic and fascinating. One of the greatest works of literature bar none.
And if you are in any way interested in the way Britain seems to be heading into a bureaucratic-manic state these days then you really have to read this prophetic book, because it is in many ways more prophetic than Orwell's 1984
Don't be put off by the age of this book, it's still hilarious even by today's standards.
