    The idea that there exists such thing as a must read book is one of the great fallacies diluting literature To judge a reader unfavourably because a certain book is not on his or her shelf, rather than to praise and learn from the idiosyncratic choices to be found there instead, is to wish for a literature of bland homogeneity To label a book must re

    Around me things sink away like fallen snow, whereas for other people even a little liqueur glass stands on the table steady as a statue 4.5 stars.There are stories in this collection and these were by far my favorite kind that clutch and fumble and scrabble across the surface of your mind, entities so eerily misshapen and askew that you don t want to

    I think it s a little mistake to judge Kafka considering only The Metamorphosis There s a whole different view on things in some of his stories You re not going to find a nice, warm, fuzzy, Care Bear kind of book that line made sense in my mind But some of his stories do show another side of him I personally like the psychological twisted, complicated,

    There is a book written by Max Brod in 1928, four years after Kafka s death, titled Zauberreich Der Liebe The Kingdom of Love The Magic Realm of Love its main character inspired after Kafka I would be interested in reading it, if I could find the English translation somewhere This book was rejected by Walter Benjamin with arguments that make no sense, i

    I first bought this in 2009, in an edition where Vintage had removed the full stops from the text in error, or to lure me into some Kakfaesque trap Thanks, Vintage I complained and received a freebie of Bulgakov s The Heart of a Dog instead I parked the stories for a long time, until this moment in time, when I revisited the most terrifying story in the un

    Probably most readable, rhythmic and rounded among these tales, so much so that I forced my brother to listen to me reading it aloud to him, is The Great Wall of China, which contains the immortal parable of the messenger.Kafka s tales are oblique, frequently, I think, resisting reading in terms of established philosophical or ideological positions Their ps

    Kafka placed his own stories in a specific canon, included in the previous book I reviewed, called The Metamorphosis and Other Stories I agree with Kafka Those stories stand out among the rest However, reading all of his shorts gave me no less pleasure I liked his shorter stories most, as they packed meaning and depth into a small speck, like the small matte
