While the printing quality is good and I would like to add some Franz Kafka to my library, I don't like the "flexi-format" cover, which feels more like a rubber coating than bonded leather. At least the pocket-sized books with their flexible covers feel like leather - these do not.
The book itself is quite nice but -1 star because its advertised as 'hardcover' when this is one of the flexibound softcover books
