    An absurd nightmare filled with stark rimmel-black & bleak, flawed, tattered whites. I had a really colorful Prague bookmark aptly between slowly simmering pages (the vivid colors of the astronomical clock fighting against the forces of evil--I know this because I was THERE this summer you guys!).

So it comes with a lot of head scratches and a plethora of So-whats(?). Kafka's "Castle" is basically like anything written by Beckett.

    Mein erstes Graphic Novel-Buch, von Comics natürlich mal abgesehen. Kafkas letzter Roman über die Sinnlosigkeit der Bürokratie, wo Kafka draufsteht, ist auch Kafka drin. :D

    Just like the art installation in the Kafka Museum in Prague I once visited and all oft Kafka's writing I've read so far, this leaves me somewhat shaken, and unsure about reality. The graphic rendition is raw, and beautiful.

    Todo se vuelve turbio cuando K. llega a un pueblo para trabajar de agrimensor. Nada más llegar, la mayoría de los vecinos ya le mira con desconfianza. Al cabo de un tiempo, descubrirá que su trabajo en realidad no existe y que no puede hablar con los señores del castillo, básicamente porque nadie habla con ellos y les rodea una bruma absoluta. Esta obra inacabada de Kafka describe cómo K. decide quedarse en el pueblo pese a sus adversidades, lidiando por recibir alguna certeza del castillo. Recue Todo se vuelve turbio cuando K. llega a un pueblo para trabajar de agrimensor. Nada más llegar, la mayoría de los vecinos ya le mira con desconfianza. Al cabo de un tiempo, descubrirá que su trabajo en realidad no existe y que no puede hablar con los señores del castillo, básicamente porque nadie habla con ellos y les rodea una bruma absoluta. Esta obra inacabada de Kafka describe cómo K. decide quedarse en el pueblo pese a sus adversidades, lidiando por recibir alguna certeza del castillo. Recuerda bastante a "El proceso" por ese vacío con el que actúan las autoridades, aunque esta es una historia más compleja. Los ayudantes y la amante de K. van a jugar extraños papeles durante su instancia y parece que sus actos son dirigidos por quienes estén dentro del castillo. Kafka suma a la incertidumbre de la burocracia la sensación de aislamiento de un hombre que vive dentro de la sospecha de sus vecinos, respira la incertidumbre y se ha quedado en ese lugar porque ya no tiene ningún otro a donde ir. El hecho de que esté inacabada no impide sentir el terror que Kafka quiere plasmar en su trama. Es una lástima que se quede justo en un momento en el que el argumento comenzaba a complicarse de forma tan interesante. Respecto a la edición gráfica, condensa en más negro que blanco el semblante de mirada perdida de sus personajes y acentúa la atmósfera agobiante. Quizás un dibujo más definido en sus personajes ayudaría a situarlos mejor.

    The Castle is an adaption of Kafka's unfinished story of the same name. I really liked the art style, which added to the gloomy and mysterious atmosphere of the storyline. As the story was coming to an end it became more and more confusing and obviously ended very abruptly. I would have been interesting to see how the tale ended but I guess we will never know.

    I really liked the art in this one. Very gloomy with a woodcut kind of feel. The story did get more incoherent towards the end and just breaks off in an awkward place. This might be due to the source material (haven't read it), but it was still unsatisfying. I really liked the art in this one. Very gloomy with a woodcut kind of feel.

    Skoda tych ilustracii. Aj ked dotvaraju atmosferu, crty postav su len hrube a velmi tazko sa rozpoznavaju, cize zneprehladnuju pribeh, ktory svojou podstatou v komiksovej podobe potrebuje prave viac jasnosti. Ale aspon som trochu pochopila, o com Zamok je, lebo literarna predloha je tazke susto.

    I like this style of illustration but the book doesn't adapt well to a graphic format. I'd be surprised if anyone who read this was keen to go on to the novel.

    The trouble with a book like this is that you can read it in under an hour whereas Kafka's source material is much more detailed than the sparse prose and artwork here could possibly represent. For that reason I didn't find this particularly satisfying. It's also hard to imagine how someone coming to the book without having read "The Castle" could formulate even the barest of storylines from it. On this occasion, I think the density of the source material undermines the book.

    Text románu Zámek (i když ho mám rád, zvlášť úvodní scénu) je pro mě často dost složitý: postupem četby románu vždy silně klesá moje schopnost se v knize dr. Kafky orientovat. Grafická adaptace je tak pro mě výtečnou pomůckou, jak si příště lépe prožít četbu plného textu Zámku, protože mi poskytlo jednoduchou strukturu několika příběhových linií, kterých se budu držet.

    Had to read this for the uni. Unfortunately, I could only find the German version and the translation was simply horrible. I compared the first pages with the original version and apparently whole sentences had been added in German, some things were cut out etc. The text didn't even sound German...

Also, I don't think Kafka is the best author to transfer to Graphic Novels format. His novels are absurd enough on their own. Chewing up the majority of the text is not really helping to understand the plot or at least who is who. The only thing that could save this Graphic Novel was the Art, but Jaromir 99's style is just not my cup of tea. His style is very fitting to this story and there were some panels that I really admired, but all in all, I think I would never pick this book up, if I didn't have to.

    A pretty enjoyable read. The illustrations are fantastic, really fitting with Kafka's oppressive style. The plot itself is enthralling as well, luring you in with each line. Overall, a very immersive experience, with story and visuals fitting perfectly together. Unfortunately, in some points transitions were a bit confusing. I don't know if that is a consequence of Kafka's text or if it's an issue with the illustrator, but I got lost every once in a while. It didn't ruin the experience, but it wa A pretty enjoyable read.

    While the artwork is certainly provocative and admirable, the tale itself (as told here) is nearly inscrutable, with jarring time discontinuities and unfinished thoughts. Though this might be an accurate representation of the source material, within the context of a visual medium, it left me confused several times. This should not be considered a negative reflection on the original, as the tone and primary ideas seem to be conveyed well, but, rather, this work should possibly be viewed as a comp While the artwork is certainly provocative and admirable, the tale itself (as told here) is nearly inscrutable, with jarring time discontinuities and unfinished thoughts.

    I didn't really connect with the art-style or with what I assume is a very truncated version. It did make enough of an impact to make me curious to read the whole novel, well...the whole incomplete novel. And now I wonder why I'm doing this to myself. I will come back and re-rate after I read the novelization if I feel a change is warranted. This may just be that this particular graphic adaptation is for those who have already read this work...

    Love the art work and of course, Kafka as a writer/philosopher. I had hard copy of his book and enjoyed the graphics immensely. However, I could not finish the book for one simple reason: despite my eyeglasses, the font of the characters was too small to read! It simply took too much energy and concentration to focus on the font.

    Kdysi jsem tuto knihu četla jako dítě za úsvitu... Dnes jí rozumím jinak. Naplňuje mne bezútěšnou prázdnotou. Obrazy textu dodávají zvláštní pachuť zlého snu. Zhmotněná noční můra. A přece neškodná. Je mi smutno.

    Bogged down in human trifles and bureaucracy, absurd and more sexual than I was expecting, this graphic telling of The Castle is funny and captures the ethos of the original unfinished book. I think this graphic ending was weirdly more satisfying than the original which just sort of ends abruptly.

    Predlohu si vobec netrufam citat, lebo Kafka bol pre mna vzdy neuchopitelny, no predsa len si myslim, ze som aspon trochu nazrela do podstaty Zamku cez tento komiks. No myslim si, ze by to islo aj lepsie...2.5*

    Fun read! The art and storytelling did a good job or laying out the book's tone. I think this is missing a star because it made me curious about the actual novel, which I'm assuming is excellent, based on this book. That might not be fair. Could these artists also do The Trial?

    The woodcut-esque style is initially striking but ultimately becomes an impedement. Then again, I feel that way about Kafka's writing in general, so maybe this is a good adaptation.

    I like the art style, it's a nice addition to the novel but it doesn't really work as a stand-alone thing. Had I not read the novel, I would have no idea what's going on.

    Cały komiks jest tak poplątany jak urzędnicze korytarze Kafki. Rysunek ciekawie oddaje atmosferę, choć czasem był dla mnie nieczytelny.
