Ok I never read books or anything like this but I just felt like I should maybe give it a go...and I did. And it was better than I thought it would be. Also I'm not a fan of Kafka whatsoever, so this is a complete exception. And yes, 6 is a high rating for me...

"Kafka is one of the greatest authors to have ever existed! His modernist style and richly defined characters with a sense of burgeoning post-modernism defines this novel and its place in literary history. Kafka can explore profound themes with an absurdist plot and a sense of objective detachment. Franz Kafka, you wrote books for me. Read in February - July 2011. "
