Publisher's Summary

The Trial by Franz Kafka is one of the great novels of the 20h century. Josef K. is an ordinary man who is arrested on his 30th birthday. He is prosecuted by a remote, inaccessible authority, yet the nature of his crime is never revealed to him. One year after his arrest he is executed. His last words describe his own death: "Like a dog!"

Excellent reading of a classic book

The narrator did an excellent job of adding to the already bizarre and disturbing story. If you like Kafka, you will like this translation and narration.

Excellent match of text and performer--a steal

The Trial may be the greatest book ever written about the ruthless, logical absurdity of a bureaucracy at its most extreme. If you've ever gotten the run-around at the DMV or your insurance company, you will find the story of Josef K uncomfortably familiar. Dick Hill has just the right voice--a little older, precise, particular--to deliver this text in its cold, comic perfection. Well done.
