Metamorphosis by Kafka


Kafka, this is my first read and very clearly its not as simple as it feels. Reading it would make you think its a children's story of one incident on a particular day. But the heavy title and the underlying theme is so strong that you can not help but wonder how Kafka does it. He pushes you to think and feel like the vermin in the story - confusion, sadness, drudgery, misery of a life wasted. I say very little because I have more to discover...


Thanks to  Brain Pain on Goodreads (href="https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1626922-schedule-for-discussions---kafka-stories-2014) for introducing me to Kafka. He is one of those writers who are not storytellers but reflect the politico-socio-economic history of a country. They are revolutionaries not writers who bring about the change with their writings. They influence the minds of people and entire generations to bring about the change!! To Kafka!!
