The Trial is one of the great works of the twentieth century: an extraordinary vision of one man put on trial by an anonymous authority on an unspecified charge. Josef K, 30, lives in a large town in an unspecified country. He is summonsed to answer a charge and appears in the court room for his trial. Franz Kafka evokes all the reality of trial without any of the specifics in a society that seems to have degraded into chaos: squalid environment, rats, yellow liquid shooting out of a hole in the wall. Guards, claustrophobia, anxiety - this is a gripping story and an allegory of modern life. This text remains just as relevant a century after it was written.

Kafka's masterpiece. I am amazed that how many works - books and films - are being influenced by this novel. Beautifully narrated by Rupert Degas, very authentic sound unlike certain American narrations (namely George Guidall) diminishes the work. Pronouncement of K. as (Ka) is simply brilliant.

From the.very beginning Kaf was such a laid back person only worried of what others could say or thought of him, with no back bone and it bothered me immensely

A great reading of the book. The narrator made me feel like I was in every scene, and made each character come to life with distinct voices for each one.
