This short story is beyond weird. I mean it super is, but it really kept my attention. It's like nothing I remember reading before. I won't soon forget it.

Books of 1916: Part Two The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka Since childhood I’ve been familiar with the plot of this short novel; people talk about it all the time because it’s so compelling. I even had the first sentence memorized thanks to my older brother. Reciting it was a warm-up exercise in s...
Philosophical Musings of a Book Nerd
Normally I would try to write my post fairly soon after I have read a particular piece of literature, however in this instance I was meeting up with a book club today so I decided that I would hold off until after I have been to the group.

What an odd short novel. If you have never read this before, it is basically about a guy who wakes up as a giant bug. He can't leave his house or communicate with his family.

“As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect.”This very effective opening sentence entirely encapsulates everything I knew about this story prior to reading it. I remember as a teenager watching a few minutes of Steven Berkoff’s...

I felt frustrated for Gregor and found myself wanting to yell at his family because I connected with him emotionally. The Metamorphosis isn't exactly "the feel good novel of the year," and it's obviously strange, but I enjoyed it. It's surreal but it's so engaging that I needed to know how it all en...
