      The Trial (Kafka's original German title: Der Process, later as Der Prozess and Der Prozeß) is a novel written by Franz Kafka in 1914 and 1915 but not published until 1925. One of Kafka's best-known works, it tells the story of a man arrested and prosecuted by a remote, inaccessible authority, with the nature of his crime revealed to neither him nor the reader.

      The Trial by Kafka. Ok, here's the truth - I didn't particularly like this book for, oh, the first half. I found it whiny, and that made me feel guilty, and like I was missing something. But the second half, oh the second half. Totally worth it.
