The Trial by Franz Kafka -my personal view.

 
The Trial by Franz Kafka.
 
Much has been written about this book. Many opinions seem to be rife about the meaning and the basic allegory of the plot and the story.
 
Kafka came from a German-speaking Jewish family and lived in Prague in Bohemia.He had a background of working in a job described by his father as a ‘breadjob’ meaning he was just earning money with no career.He worked for an insurance company where he dealt with worker’s injury claims, although he had a doctorate in law.

The Power and the Glory by Graham Greene

The Power and the Glory was hailed as Greene's greatest book but after reading it for a second time many years apart, I cannot for the life of me understand why. Green was a master of characterisation and plot. His single POV style and his sparse but hugely telling descriptions were legendary. This book by contrast, was written to a plan. He wished on the one hand to condemn the polital pogrom against Roman Catholic priests in Mexico and on the other to absolve himself of his own adultarous lifestyle which he always struggled with.
