Seriously how the hell can Kafka expect people to think this as a masterpiece, oh dear.............., I mean. People DO class it as a masterpiece..WHY!? It's anything but. This book is just WRONG. It's not even close to being adequate.

I prefer ''The Trial'' than this tripe though.

Metamorphosis is a novella written by Franz Kafka which was first published in 1915. One of Kafka's best-known works, Metamorphosis tells the story of salesman Gregor Samsa, who wakes one morning to find himself inexplicably transformed into a huge insect and subsequently struggles to adjust to this new condition. The novella has been widely discussed among literary critics, with differing interpretations being offered. In popular culture and adaptations of the novella, the insect is commonly depicted as a cockroach.

Obras que subiram no meu conceito (38 movies items)

"4/10 para 6/10 é infelizmente mais conceitual do que uma história completa, eu sinto que o Kafka poderia ter sido o maior romancista da europa, e de fato ele é um dos melhores, a prova disso é a Metamorfose, um quase ensaio psicológico sobre a vida de um perdedor."

"eu tendia a achar que o kafka escrevia em suas histórias a história dele mesmo, essa dúvida deixou de ser depois de eu ler "carta ao pai" bom segue sendo uma história estranha, macabra e ao mesmo tempo bonita"
