I don't get the hype for this story at all - and I love Kafka. 80% in and genuinely nothing has happened yet. Am I too retarded?

yeah you are retarded. kafka writes characters that are very committed to customs, words, laws, and the dialogue as well as subtle descriptions of the scenes detail the characters. anyways, this is also just dope saw and hellraiser shit so skip to that if you are bored tard.

Btw, have you read 'The Hunger Artist'? It's one of my favourite stories from him.

yeah the hunger artist is a way better story than penal colony. my favourite of his short ones is the judgement; so much emotion in so few pages
