DyslexicAtheist Book Review: Franz Kafka the Metamorphosis (Die Verwandlung)

DyslexicAtheist read Franz Kafka’s classic “The Metamorphis” (so that you don’t have to).

The story told backwards is about a starving beetle which gets adopted by the ‘Samsa’ family who has a young daughter named Grete.

Grete slowly nurtures the sick insect back to health. But unfortunately the animal loses most of it’s legs while in the care of the young girl. Finally one night it wakes up in the body of a young man, learns to speak and calls himself Gregor Samsa.

Gregor learns to walk on his 2 legs and quickly finds a job as a travelling salesman. He is very grateful and continues to financially support the Samsa family from then on. Happy End.
