Book Review – The Metamorphosis

The MetamorphosisThe Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This may have been path-breaking when first written.
I just found it bizarre and sad. Maybe the essence has been lost in translation or there may be cultural and spatial disconnect. My loss?
The book may have been an inspiration to
Philip Roth
to write The Breast – something only the creator of the mammary-fixated Portnoy could have conjured up.
This book, in turn, has echoes of The Nose by
Nikolai Gogol
.
The fable does justify the term ‘Kafkaesque’.
