    About the Book

    A metaphor, according to the Oxford Dictionary, is a figure of speech in which a word is applied to an object or action to which it is not literally applicable. Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis is spun around this figure of speech through the eyes of its central character - Gregor Samsa. Gregor Samsa is a travelling salesman who finds himself transformed into a large insect, one fine day. This unforeseen transformation affects Gregor Samsa a lot. How has this change affected him personally and professionally? What is the aftermath in Gregor Samsa’s life after the transformation? Grab a copy of Metamorphosis and get answers and insights into the diverse nature of the human mind.

    About the Author

    A German-speaking, Bohemian Jewish novelist and short story writer, Franz Kafka is widely recognized as one of the major figures of 20th-century literature. Many of his works fuse realism and fantasy apart from exploring themes like alienation, existential anxiety, guilt and absurdity. Born into a middle-class family in Prague, he trained as a lawyer and was employed by an insurance company. Over the course of his life, Kafka wrote hundreds of letters to family, close friends, and his father, with whom he had a strained relationship. Even though he was engaged to several women, he never married. Franz Kafka died in 1924 at the age of 40 from tuberculosis.

    A Nightmarish classic

    A true nightmarish classic from every aspect. I've heard that Franz Kafka is a very underrated writer. Well its really true. Franz Kafka is a very powerful writer indeed. The way he has upheld the inner turmoils of the protagonist, Gregor Samsa is exceptional.

    Pretty good

    worth reading. The victimisation of a modern man by his parasitic family is the theme. Absurdity of existence which is determined by the contribution one makes to the society is dealt with in detail. Every modern man can identify himself with Gregor Samsa. The use of autobiographical elements and symbols like apple, which stands for the beginning of exile or suffering make the narrative beautiful. The novella has a unique flavour.

    Great product

    if you are into psychological matters this book is the best. it's easy to read and most of all it makes your imagination go wild. this book is so indulging that i couldn't help but read it twice in a day. the only bad aspect over me of this book was my imagination ran quite too wild due to which i had few nightmares and i didn't felt like eating anything at all. especially after*spoilers* that apple incident with Gregor and his father. Well, this book was meant to give you horrors and it work...
