Die Verwandlung und andere Erzählungen The Metamorphosis and Other Stories, Franz Kafka In the bizarre world of Franz Kafka, salesmen turn into giant bugs, apes give lectures at college academies, and nightmares probe the mysteries of modern humanity’s unhappiness.

Kafka’s survey of the insectile situation of young Jews in inner Bohemia can hardly be improved upon: ‘With their posterior legs they were still glued to their father’s Jewishness and with their wavering anterior legs they found no new ground. There is a sense in which Kafka’s Jewish question (‘What have I in common with Jews?’) has become everybody’s question, Jewish alienation the template for all our doubts.

This selection of Kafka’s shorter prose writings includes one of the few works published during his lifetime: the harrowing story of Gregor Samsa’s overnight transformation into a verminous insect, his record of the effect of this sudden metamorphosis on himself and the reaction of his family. It conveys with an unsettling mixture of subjective involvement and objective detachment the complex feelings of guilt, affection, responsibility and self-doubt that characterise Kafka’s perception of intimate emotional relationships - themes that are continued in the quasi-fictional story The Judgement.

This publication is a joke. Someone downloaded Kafka's (out of copyright) work, put it into Microsoft Word - chose the smallest, most obnoxious sans serif font to save paper and sold it through Amazon. It's completely illegible. Pay a little more for a legitimate copy and enjoy this great work.

Kafka's The Trial is a tough book to read, perhaps because so much of what he wrote about seems plausible today. Secret decisions in which the primary person is not informed (think about some of the digital monitoring that goes on), trials that are unaccessible, and the insidious effect on one's social circles where the shadow of a trial quickly becomes known among many, but there is no recourse or ability to deny anything. And yet, with a modern eye, I also saw so many instances of Josef K's own arrogance and blindness to his own shortcomings. He makes speeches when he might have the chance to listen. He sexually assaults (kissing her extensively without her permission) a young woman in the same boarding house and then is clueless about why she's avoiding him. And when the two officers who originally arrested him are being beaten in a room in his Bank building, he does not try to assist them by calling to someone else but appears to simply hope that they are not heard by anyone else in the building. And yet his reactions are understandable, and perhaps quite typical even today of how someone might act. It's a scary book, not because of any fantastic monsters, but because of the way a government with no accountability can corrupt all citizens under fear and secrecy.

This is a well-translated, very portable version of a truly extraordinary book. If you're looking for the most affordable version of The Metamorphosis, this is the best fit I've found! It's clear and engaging, and has slightly simpler vocabulary than many. This means it would be great for a classroom setting or as a gift for a younger reader, a current English learner, or anyone who doesn't enjoy being sent to the dictionary when they're trying to enjoy a book. The story itself is fresh as ever--while this isn't personally my favorite of Kafka's work, I love the absurdism and the economy of language that he employs within it! I was very pleased with the binding quality as well, and there are several amusing graphics inside the book that made it just that bit more fun to read. The biggest selling point for me personally was the size-- I'm a pack rat, so it is often difficult to find books that will fit wherever I need them to. This has made a wonderful addition to my commute this week, for the price of a Starbucks order or a single decent sock. You can't go wrong!

This book is an abrupt short story that is engaging from start to finish. The story is surreal yet the main character Gregor is completely relatable. The story starts out as funny, but grows sadder and sadder until the ending, which admittedly is strange enough to be the ending of a Sundance film. Honestly, if this book had come out a few years later it could've been an artistic surrealist cartoon. This is one of those speculative frictions that doesn't actually explain why something is happening, only that it is. Franz Kafka explains how turning into a roach would affect Gregor in a way that is understandable, sympathetic, yet well researched. It feels like the story is an allegory for something, yet is so dedicated to its premise that it's difficult to say what the allegory is. Overall, I would recommend this story for those that like the modern abrupt method of storytelling, who like strangeness, and who like to cry. Seriously, this one is depressing despite it's moments of levity.

This was a very unique read! I enjoyed it very much. I decided to actually listen to the audio version after I read it, just to see if I would “rethink” my opinions and thoughts about the book. Then, I was so intrigued, I did some internet searches and started reading about other interpretations readers have made. I couldn’t get enough, I even went so far as to YouTube videos and feature length films dedicated to this short tale! Those proved to be quite interesting and entertaining. I would definitely recommend this book!

Kind of confusing. If not for the fact of seeing a picture of the "bug" that Gregor had become, I don't think I could've pictured it by the description given in the story. Also, as said by others, it is never revealed why this person changed. Would a mother really give up on her son as such in the book? I don't think so. I only read as curiosity got the better of me. That & the fact it was very short. Might make a good "Twilight Zone" type of movie. (Unless it is already, & I didn't know it.) Anyway, 3 stars is the best I can do.

The Metamorphosis is one of those books that you either read in high school or you never read at all. I heard so many people talking about The Metamorphosis and I thought that I wouldn't ever read the book and all of the puns, allusions and themes discussed between friends would just go over my head for the rest of my life. I finally decided to give the book a shot. I was quite surprised by how short the book is, and yet how relateable it is to my current life expectations and experience. The Metamorphosis is a book I would suggest to everyone to read. As I make my way from college to "being an adult" the concept discussed in the first part of the book I found to be the most relevant. Kafka discusses having a job and the expectations of having a job. That one can waste away their life at a company (or with people) that do not value you as a human being can do significant harm to your being. Anyways, great book, I'm happy I decided to read it. Also to not, I really enjoyed the print size and font of the book.
