The Trial by Franz Kafka

Kafka’s The Trial is the story of a man, Josef K., who is arrested one morning. He is not told what his crime is or who has accused him, and the story follows his attempts to navigate the labyrinthine legal system where nothing makes sense, no one tells anyone anything, and everything is buried under miles of red tape. It’s a brilliant portrayal of a corrupt and ineffective system, and arguably Kafka’s masterpiece. It’s probably one of the most important books of the 20th century, and we are supposed to respect it and love it.

I fucking hated it. Kafka, you are exhausting.

Verdict: one out of five stars
