really liked it
bookshelves: classics, out-on-loan

This has to be one of the wierdest books I've ever read. That makes it very difficult to put on a 1-5 scale.
It is a surreal story of beurocracy gone mad and a look deep into a penal system the Cardassian Empire would have been proud of.

I am very pleased to have read this book and in a strange way I enjoyed reading it. At least I understand the work 'Kafkaesque' a bit better now ^_^
