    • Going to Prague so I thought I should read this. Unsettling and fascinating. I was not disappointed.The translation seems a bit clumsy, though. I might try the older version next. Oh, yes, you will want to read it more than once.


    • It's difficult to accept The Trial is an incomplete book, and yet is one of the greatest ever written. At some points to dark, still a must read. Fear the power of the system over the people.


    • Libro para mi hijo de 2ª Humanidades en la Universidad CEU-SAN PABLO (programas bilingües), ya que era el libro que le pedían.


    • This work, like all those of the author, was published after his death from tuberculosis at age 41. A man is arrested and tried without ever knowing the cause. The point is that the whole rambling process that develops around this circumstance is described. A kind of criticism of the system with all its bureaucracy concentrated in the form and ignoring the background.


    • The rating has nothing to do with the actual work. I very much like Kafka's work and was hoping to enjoy this book. But i almost went blind trying to decipher the microscopic print. I could only make it through a few pages before having headaches which i can only guess were induced by continuous and extreme squinting and constantly losing track of which line i was on. It was a nightmarish experience that parallels the confusing and meaningless torture that Kafka's protagonists generally suffer.I [...]


    • Warning SpoilersMetamorphosis by Franz Kafka was first published 1915 under the title 'Die Verwandlung'.The overall story begins with a traveling salesman, Gregor Sansa, awakening late to his train that he needed to take for work and realizing that he has transformed or metamorphosed into a large insect creature. 一While Kafka never mentions what type of insect he turns into specifically, it is thought to be a dung beetle or cockroach.一Throughout, the cause of this metamorphosis isn't reveale [...]


    • This is a well-translated, very portable version of a truly extraordinary book. If you're looking for the most affordable version of The Metamorphosis, this is the best fit I've found! It's clear and engaging, and has slightly simpler vocabulary than many. This means it would be great for a classroom setting or as a gift for a younger reader, a current English learner, or anyone who doesn't enjoy being sent to the dictionary when they're trying to enjoy a book. The story itself is fresh as ever- [...]


    • Kafka's The Trial is a tough book to read, perhaps because so much of what he wrote about seems plausible today. Secret decisions in which the primary person is not informed (think about some of the digital monitoring that goes on), trials that are unaccessible, and the insidious effect on one's social circles where the shadow of a trial quickly becomes known among many, but there is no recourse or ability to deny anything. And yet, with a modern eye, I also saw so many instances of Josef K's [...]


    • This was a very unique read! I enjoyed it very much. I decided to actually listen to the audio version after I read it, just to see if I would “rethink” my opinions and thoughts about the book. Then, I was so intrigued, I did some internet searches and started reading about other interpretations readers have made. I couldn’t get enough, I even went so far as to YouTube videos and feature length films dedicated to this short tale! Those proved to be quite interesting and entertaining. I wo [...]
