An absolutely wonderful meander into a more positive and poetic side of Kafka and a story about fringe-life. Very compelling reading, and the missing sections are almost as intriguing as the words that are written. Brilliant. ( )

Faltam aqui a dialética do absurdo e as abstrusidades da burocracia narradas noutras obras de Kafka. É um escrito europeu sobre falsas idéias sobre a América do Norte das décadas de 1910/1920. De resto, um romance inacabado. (Condição que não impediu outros inacabados, como O processo e O Castelo, de serem obras-primas). Alguns dos eventos são (kafkianamente) estranhos, e ainda mais bizarras muitas das personagens. Mas o todo é estereotipado: O protagonista adolescente Karl Rossman emigra para escapar de seus problemas e em busca de uma vida melhor. No Novo Mundo, só encontra ganância , opressão e amigos duvidosos nas empresas capitalistas nas quais ele trabalha.
A história é muito mais previsível do que pode imaginar quem já leu Kafka e a natureza desarticulada dos últimos capítulos só deixa uma sensação de confusão. ( )

After a sexual encounter with a servant girl, teen-aged Karl is shipped off to America by his parents to live with his uncle. But his uncle soon turns his back on Karl, who is left to fend for himself. Karl is shortly joined on his journey for employment by two other immigrants - one from France and one from Ireland - who prove to be false friends that lead Karl to increasingly more difficult problems.

Like The Castle, this Kafka work made me feel pretty dumb. I kept feeling like there was something I was missing because I wasn't really getting a big picture takeaway from it. As far as I'm aware of, Kafka never spent any time in America himself, which is perhaps why this book doesn't feel in the least bit like a commentary on America - either good or bad. Likewise, despite what critical readings say, I didn't get a sense of the absurdities of bureaucracy in this book like in other Kafka works. True, lots of ridiculous things happen to Karl, but there doesn't seem to be a "force" causing these things to happen, it just seems like a variety of ill-mannered people acting cruelly. Not much for a takeaway message.

The audio book was narrated by George Guidall, who also narrated the copy of The Castle that I listened to sometime ago. Guidall is okay as a narrator -- he does have a good variation in his voice to indicate emotions, but he lacks very clear distinctions between character voices and doesn't even attempt the various accents that should be present.

All in all, this was a bit of a disappointing read. I'm glad I finally got to it, but I would steer Kafka newbies to The Metamorphosis or The Trial rather than Amerika. ( )

Just getting into Kafka. He seems to be offering one large commentary on our potential lack of agency in the world. ( )

If you know this is Kafka's first novel (even though published last), you can see the signs everywhere. The tone is remarkably uneven, events are more upbeat and energetic, and the absurd encounters he imagines between his characters are not as organic as those found in his later works [b:The Trial|17690|The Trial|Franz Kafka|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/414xH1FM-3L._SL75_.jpg|2965832] and [b:The Castle|17689|The Castle (Dramatization)|Franz Kafka|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1266451811s/17689.jpg|2206656].

But the similarities are notable as well: the same quasi-incoherent dream quality permeates the entire story, where characters don't behave quite rationally and narrative threads are left dangling. The protagonist, Karl Rossman, is the same hapless everyman who must endure the insanity of Kafka's land of nightmares. Rossman is not as strong or indignant as Joseph K. or K. from the aforementioned novels, but this difference could perhaps be attributed to Kafka's own uncertain youth.

Overall, the book is interesting as an artifact but doesn't work too well as a narrative. It doesn't grip one emotionally and the story is too disjointed to fully engage your attention over 300 pages or so. It's unfinished, of course, so Kafka can hardly be blamed for its defects. If you're a Kafka fan, read it for completion's sake. Otherwise, I'd suggest you don't bother unless you have a lot of free time. ( )
