    1. This is a unique and important book. Yes it reminds me of Kafka literature but there is less surreal to it and more brutal honesty about a restrictive culture. This honesty comes across with an honest sarcasm that even the satire and parody becomes believable. The narrators dive into history and the cause and effect of seemingly unrelated commerce and its interconnectivity with politics is fascinating. A phenomenal read outside of my norm.
