>>3003660 The Castle, definitely. I knew it wasn't finished before starting it but I still wept a few salty tears after finding it ends mid-fucking-sentence. Still a very good read though, and I'm glad Kafka at least hinted towards the ending before dying.

>>3003682 I thought I had read somewhere that Gogol had completed a second part and was working on a third part, but decided to burn them instead.
