Franz Kafka - "The Man Who Disappeared" or "America"

In my humblest opinion, this book is the greatest book ever written - by the greatest author that has ever lived; Franz Kafka. The brilliance of the book becomes clearer, when all other work of Kafka has been read, because this one is completely different from it. His previous work being abstract, this one is as concrete as a firm stone bridge. In an interview Kafka claims that this book became something of a Dickens novel. Anyone who has read Dickens would understand.

Sadly, this book was never finished and the outcomes of it will only live in our imagination. Forsaken by Franzie, the greatest tragedy of this story will always be its disappearance.
