Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Sorry, Themis - haven't read Kafka!


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) You should ... at least "The Trial" and one or two short stories! :)

Hayes Me neither! A serious hole in my reading résumé.


message 4: by Nathanimal (new)

Nathanimal Hi, alienated Kafka fans. I invite you over to the Kafka group here on goodreads for some discussion and camaraderie (as much as that's possible in an indifferent and inscrutable world).


message 5: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl "The Castle" will need to be voted back on the list. The edition that was on the list was not by Kafka, but was a dramatic adaptation by someone named Fishelson.

But the Murakami novel is not a problem?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads The Murakami novel may not have been on the list at the time of her comment, of course.


message 8: by Chris (new)

Chris Kafka on the shore by Murakami. Clearly one of Franz Kafka's masterpieces.


message 9: by Luu (new)

Luu Kafka on the shore is defiantly Kafka's best work.

PROF.S.L.SANGAM Metamorphosis is the one of the best stories in the world.Kafka had fun for us.It contains humor and satire. Prof.S.L.Sangam

Tim Smith Franz Kafka's stories, themes and plots, such as they are, tapped a pulse in humanity, almost a century ahead of their time.
It is fascinating to me that Kafka died, essentially in obscurity. Meanwhile his friend and fellow author who, (luckily for us) preserved FK's manuscripts from being buried by the sands of time, and even worse, Nazi conflagrations, was, at the time, the more well-read writer.
And now, less than 100 years later, their status has been completely reversed.
