The Metamorphosis (German: Die Verwandlung, also sometimes translated as The Transformation) is a novella by Franz Kafka, first published in 1915. It has been cited as one of the seminal works of fiction of the 20th century and is studied in colleges and universities across the Western world. The story begins with a traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa, waking to find himself transformed (metamorphosed) into a large, monstrous insect-like creature. The cause of Samsa's transformation is never revealed, and Kafka never did give an explanation. The rest of Kafka's novella deals with Gregor's attempts to adjust to his new condition as he deals with being burdensome to his parents and sister, who are repulsed by the horrible, verminous creature Gregor has become. - Summary by Wikipedia

Not a bad book but I got a bit confused as to how Gregor died ... there’s definitely plenty of room for imagination. The narrator was ok but only for this short title.

This was so very different from what I expected. Interesting translation of the story.

Short story, typical Kafka, good for a few hours lighthearted literature. Narrator difficult to understand at times.
