I haven't read the original work by Kafka but reading this graphic novel was a great start. It got to the points quickly and I loved the drawings. Though it is a terrifying story, I found it quite funny. I heard that the original 'isn't supposed to be funny'. I found myself chuckling with the words and graphic pictures. Maybe I will be disappointed with the original, if it is all serious. Enjoyed the story very much. I will go on to reading the Trial by Peter Kuper. A lot of work has gone into this book.
