#19 - The Metamorphosis

A true classic work by Kafka. When you can all-too-well relate with the drudgery of a life of monotonous work and being cooped up in a small room, few books capture the feeling as well as The Metamorphosis. I know this feeling. However, as with most works by Kafka, it is very wide open to interpretation and you can find your own message and relationship within the tale of a man who wakes up one day as an insect and the ensuing trials. Works like this can't be "reviewed" I won't even try, just read it. Even if you were forced to read it for school at some point, read it again without the pressure and with new insight and experiences and see if the story itself doesn't take on a new meaning and look. Highly Recommended!
