A land-surveyor, known only as K., arrives at a small village permanently covered in snow and dominated by a castle to which access seems permanently denied. K.'s attempts to discover why he has been called constantly run up against the peasant villagers, who are in thrall to the absurd bureaucracy that keeps the castle shut, and the rigid hierarchy of power among the self-serving bureaucrats themselves. But in this strange wilderness, there is passion, tenderness and considerable humour. Darkly bizarre, this complex book was the last novel by one of the 20th century's greatest and most influential writers.

A masculine and coquettish reading
only if my friend wanted to be able to say "I've read Kafka" which is exactly why I finished this nonsensical book. If you like reading/listening to people argue the same point from 3-4 different positions with each other for no reason other than to hear themselves think then this is your book.
if it were 100 degrees outside and I didn't have air conditioning and I needed a place to take a nap I would buy a ticket to the show and have a nice cool nap.
waste your credit if you want to
