The Trial

All I remember about Franz Kafka is something about turning into a giant bug. I don’t think this is that book, unsless the bug is a lawyer, judging from the description below.

I’m not sure why this kind of dystopia world gone mad kind of thing appeals to me, but it does. It’s like horror or suspense stories on a macro scale.

From Amazon:

A terrifying psychological trip into the life of one Joseph K., an ordinary man who wakes up one day to find himself accused of a crime he did not commit, a crime whose nature is never revealed to him. Once arrested, he is released, but must report to court on a regular basis–an event that proves maddening, as nothing is ever resolved. As he grows more uncertain of his fate, his personal life–including work at a bank and his relations with his landlady and a young woman who lives next door–becomes increasingly unpredictable. As K. tries to gain control, he succeeds only in accelerating his own excruciating downward spiral.

Still hoping for the giant bug thing.

  1. You’re thinking of Metamorphosis (“One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin….”)
    Kafka was required reading when I went to school in Germany 😉
