    An enjoyable read

    This is such a beautifully written story about Kafka, and about the struggles of writer's block. I enjoyed reading this very much, and appreciated the attention to detail given to every scene. The dialogue between characters was very believable, and it was easy to become wrapped up in this story from beginning to end.
