The Metamorphosis
Franz Kafka
20 Installments

Described by Nobel laureate Elias Canetti as, "one of the few great and perfect works of the poetic imagination," this short fable about a man who wakes up one morning transformed into a giant insect is deeply funny in its tragedy and heartbreaking in its humor.

Everytime I read or teach this book, the question always pops up: What turned Gregor into a cockroach in the first place? (Beats me)<br/>I'm always unsettled by the not-so happy ending, yet all the other main characters are at peace--but that's Kafka for you.

Really felt the impact of poor Gregor's situation by reading this in installments.

This was really interesting book. It ingage readers until the end.Throughout the book readers could learn some lesson. It'a little bit sad!

The state that Gregor finds himself in totally breaks my heart. Here he is a responsible and devoted son and brother, taking care of his family entirely on his own. When he needs help and caring for, he is treated like he is meaningless. I really felt for Gregor and even though I can understand what his family had to go through, it still seems entirely unfair to him.

I read this in High School and just found it again, of course it does not have the same surprise and anticipation element, but it's still a great read.

I think it's a good short story, it intrigues you all the way to the end (which, may I say, came as a bit of a shock).
