It took a lot of time to finish this book. It's not long, but I actually ruined the experience for me. I first read 30 pages of it in Jan 2022, then more 40 pages around middle of the 2022 and now I finally finished it.
I have so many thoughts about this book. Just like most of the Kafka's books, this also directly or indirectly portrays Kafka's own life and his relationships with his family.
(Continued in the comments)

hya (1)His father's overbearing, authoritarian personality & his love for his sister is the main story of this book. This book touches the topic of changing mindsets, absurdity of existence and the alienating experience of modern life.
Even though I knew the ending, it still made me sad and I wanted more of this story. Throughout the story he and his sister tries everything in their capacity so that everything works out but everybody has their limits.

hya (2) Working for the family at the young age of 17-18, seeing her family struggling everyday through multiple jobs, Grete(sister) broke down and that's where story has it's climax.
Even though Kafka wanted to write more of this story, it's complete and incomplete in it's own way. I think everyone should at least read it once in their lifetime and try to understand the complexities of life.💭

The journey I had through this book was perfectly agreeable and the most fascinating one. I had gone through every emotion through this book. The anticipation, the anger, the blushing. I love this book and don't ask me how much I am controlling myself to not re-read and move on to next book.
This book written in 1800s is still relevant in today's time. There is still a thinking of class, birth and money above all.

hya I have felt every emotion which Elizabeth felt throughout the course of the story. The growth of characters, the circumstances, the reasons behind them and ohh the letters (Istg I was dreading the letters as I was proceeding with the story for they bought the most unexpected turns).
The satire, the emotions, the setting, the plot, I just can't put into words what I don't love abou P&P. It will be a forever favourite.

NOBODY told me it was coming on this page. Ms. Austen, You have no compassion for my poor nerves 🙂

I used to read till 2 years back but then pandemic happened and it changed everything. I still bought books but was unable to concentrate because of studies and surroundings. I would always pick up books(audiobooks, ebooks), read for few pages and kept it aside.
This year in Jan I bought 8 new books and pledge to get out of this slump as soon as possible. (Pretty late) I started with the shortest book to get started and it's going pretty well😊
