This same recording was my introduction to Kafka [minus the unnecessary soundtrack] I was a son of the sixties and explored many things and during my travels found myself in the basement room with friends to listen to this same recording.

We were spellbound and wanted to listen again but Seer said "No!. . .once a week only as l never want tire of this." And he was right. Each week we gathered with new friends to share our new find.

The reader Lotte Lenya added to the gray atmosphere seen in most WW II films of Nazi occupation. Her voice has a harshness which accents each phrase akin to mood in his work.

You will remember her as Colonel Klegg, the Soviet defector to Spectre in From Russia With Love. lf you don't remember. . .you will the instant you hear her first phrase.

My only bad mark was adding music to detract from my experience.
You will enjoy this.

I love Kafka but unfortunately the narrator has a very thick accent and it was hard to follow. I speak several languages and understand the need to be clear and concise. I also would have liked it if each short story was named beforehand. Disappointing.

Old fashion production. Its affected style contrasts with Kafka's understated tone. The recordings are limited to a couple of hours and exclude some of Kafka's best short stories.
