The Trial (original German title: Der Process,  later Der Prozess, Der Proceß 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 neither to him nor the reader.

Not Franz Kafka's "The Trial"
This translation of "The Trial" is not the original by Willa and Edwin Muir; the version most ubiquitously reproduced and most accepted as the closest translation. I strongly recommend purchasing Willa's and Edwin's version of Kafka's novel over the one offered in the iBookstore --albeit free; or for those fluent in German, to purchase "The Trial" in its original format, as intended by the author.
After reading a few pages of different sections of this iBookstore version, I noticed that the writing only somewhat resembled that of the translation previously recommended by me. This iBookstore version, while retaining most of the novel's essence, does not contain the eloquence and quality of writing with which the original was made.
Down with irony
The first review is either by a "professor" or a millennial hipster, or both.
