Kafka for Now, A Note on Translations Soon

The Metamorphosis and Other Stories (Dover Thrift Editions)The Metamorphosis and Other Stories by Franz Kafka

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A very good read. My first dabbling in Kafka from a somewhat extended dabbling in existentialism. If I had to buy this book again I would not be buying it for "The Metamorphosis." A decent tale, but "In the Penal Colony" and "A Report to an Academy" were the real winners. I plan to do a comment on books in translation in the very near future over at http://unronic.blogspot.com. here by the end of the week; I promise.

  1. I'll wait on your book review about this one and if I like it, I'll make sure I buy mine. :-)
