* Also by Kafka, ''Literature/TheCastle''. A surveyor is summoned to the town surrounding a tremendous castle of [[ObstructiveBureaucrat Obstructive Bureaucrats]], and nobody is sure why; the protagonist thinks he knows who he needs to talk to so he can find out, but first he has to get an appointment with the undersecretary and convince him to give him an appointment with the regular secretary...and so on. He is inexplicably appointed two childish assistants that mostly just make fun of him. The book was never finished, so it's not clear if there ever was an ending.

%%* One of the many themes in ''Literature/HouseOfLeaves''. It's also one of the less {{Mindscrew}}y themes, which should give you some idea of what the book is like.

* ''Literature/TheHelmetOfHorror'' by Victor Pelevin. Several people wake up in rooms connected only by a chat-like computer system; each room opens into a labyrinth. Some labyrinths are real, some metaphorical, and one is accessible only through dreams.

* ''Literature/{{Illium}}'': spans three planets rather than a room. The mystery is just what has happened between our time and this imaginary far future to make the latter so bizarre. For a start, where did all those Greek gods using advanced technology and living on Mars come from? The characters on Earth in particular take their condition as a mystery to be solved and try to escape the definite confines that are set upon them even as they are able to teleport around the world freely.

* ''Series/Dark Matter'' is a paradigm of the trope: six people awaken from hypersleep aboard a spaceship with no idea who they are or what they are doing there, and the series' plot is driven by their attempts to find out.

* ''Machinima/TheStrangerhood'': Everyone wakes with amnesia in a mysterious town, and only a scary faceless voice seems to know what's going on and won't tell anyone. This being a comedy series, we never find out either.
