About the Author
An icon of twentieth-century literature, Franz Kafka was born on July 3, 1883, into a middle-class, German family in Prague. Never famous in his own lifetime, most of Kafka's works were published and translated only during the 1920s and 1930s and almost instantly, they became cult texts of modern literature. The Judgment, The Metamorphosis and Amerika were all written in 1912 while The Trial, Kafka's most famous novel, was written in 1914. Kafka died of tuberculosis in 1924.

The title is quite attractive especially for a person like me who loves biology.
This book holds a story of Gregor Samsa, a travelling salesman, who wakes up one day to discover that he has metamorphosed into a bug or you can say a horrible vermin. And with this change starts the real struggle of Samsa trying hard to reconcile his humanity with his transformation.
And talking about people around him for whom he was once a perfect hard working man was now a trouble and a horrible thing to deal with, with loads of emotions like (grief, hatred, resignation, endurance, and then explicit detestation)
It’s more like a person who has been affected by a disease like AIDS and people stay away from him because they fear that what if they get the virus transferred into their system.
The writer has penned down something which is very real and tragic at the same time. As if he wanted us to understand that, Suddenly something happens in our lives and everything is changed and what is left behind is hope for better things ahead even if its impossible.
The book is all about how can a change affect you, how will people treat you after that change and what it feels like being a weak one, how it feels being isolated by the ones who adore you once, how difficult is to exist when you are no more a human, how cruel can people be when you are suddenly of no use, how people forget everything you did to them just when you collapse.
You should definitely read this book for a change. Kafka has done a really good work here. If you read about Kafka, you will come to know that his books throw light on his life.
I am impressed, I am going to grab The Trial now, another masterpiece by him.
Beware, this is not a pleasant read.
Surely a little depressing.
Wanted to throw away this book but could not do so until I finished it.
Now I want to read this author's other books.
1. Cheap just rs 69 , I guess that it’s worth spending.
2. Great quality pages
3. Easy to read. you may get lost sometimes though.
If you are an avid reader, Franz Kafka’s books are a must read. ( go for "The trial"
his genius is hard to ignore in this one.
he plays around with the ideas of existentialism and nihilism and leaves you awestruck.
you couldnt possibly hope to buy such a masterpiece for such a low price but good thing a lot of people are busy with chetan bhagat, the prices of classics remain low.
Now Kafka used this metamorphism about Gregor's transformation from a human to a beetle. The insects description could be a metaphor for depression, posttraumatic stress disorder or even going out socialising when we face a change in our appearance, maybe a physical change which is directly proportional to the people judging. Which is my next point, I could also understand that Kafka not only wanted to show the changes in Gregor but also the change in behaviour of the people around him. The metamorphosis of the family union. In the beginning, the family reacts pessimistic and worried about this problem but towards the end of it with Gregor's death, the family learns to take initiatives to work and lead forward.
Well I loved the book! It'd be a perfect five starer and I'm looking forward to read more of Franz Kafka this year. I'd highly recommend this book to be read once, it's considerably short yet captivating.
The only issue is that it reaches a tad too much into the range of interpretation.
