The Trial by Franz Kafka, narrated by award-winning narrator Mike Vendetti, begins like a nightmare - only K is awake, and he is being arrested and indicted on charges he never learns. He is caught up in a legal system that will destroy his life. This is a text that often is used in English classes because it is so deep. Kafka attacks the norms of society, religion, and the legal system. This line is from the next to last chapter: "'No,' said the priest, 'you don't need to accept everything as true, you only have to accept it as necessary.' 'Depressing view,' said K. 'The lie made into the rule of the world could well be taken to mean religion and its effect upon the world.'"
