4.0 out of 5 stars Reality and change, a story worth reading :)
Reviewed in India on 3 August 2018
My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐.7

The title is quite attractive especially for a person like me who loves biology.

This book holds a story of Gregor Samsa, a travelling salesman, who wakes up one day to discover that he has metamorphosed into a bug or you can say a horrible vermin. And with this change starts the real struggle of Samsa trying hard to reconcile his humanity with his transformation.

And talking about people around him for whom he was once a perfect hard working man was now a trouble and a horrible thing to deal with, with loads of emotions like (grief, hatred, resignation, endurance, and then explicit detestation)
It’s more like a person who has been affected by a disease like AIDS and people stay away from him because they fear that what if they get the virus transferred into their system.

The writer has penned down something which is very real and tragic at the same time. As if he wanted us to understand that, Suddenly something happens in our lives and everything is changed and what is left behind is hope for better things ahead even if its impossible.

The book is all about how can a change affect you, how will people treat you after that change and what it feels like being a weak one, how it feels being isolated by the ones who adore you once, how difficult is to exist when you are no more a human, how cruel can people be when you are suddenly of no use, how people forget everything you did to them just when you collapse.

You should definitely read this book for a change. Kafka has done a really good work here. If you read about Kafka, you will come to know that his books throw light on his life.

I am impressed, I am going to grab The Trial now, another masterpiece by him.

This author is a genius. Through this book, he trying to highlight his own life experience, especially how he was to his parents and siblings. Got this book delivered in like 2 days. Read it in 1 day (Around 100 pages only).
Verdict:
1. Cheap just rs 69 , I guess that it’s worth spending.
2. Great quality pages
3. Easy to read. you may get lost sometimes though.

If you are an avid reader, Franz Kafka’s books are a must read. ( go for "The trial"
