No wonder Elias Canetti described it as "one of the few great and perfect works of the poetic imagination written". The Metamorphosis remains one of the best works of fiction in history.
It is the story of a traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa, who wakes up to find himself being transformed to an insect-like creature. The story unfolds into one of the greatest short fiction stories ever written.

The narration totally bums this version out....it could almost be a computer reading this...is it?
Older student, budding writer, concise reviewer.
Yes, it is cheap enough not to fret about, short enough to give a chance, and overall rewarding.
Delving into the mind and sympathizing with a cockroach. Did not think I could go there but I did. I hate cockroaches.
Definitely check out the sample first. The performer has a languid, almost mechanical pace to his voice. But for me it worked. I usually listen to books while working on projects or driving and like it when they speak slower and simpler so I can focus on the task at hand more than the book.
It has some dark humor that I found smirk-worthy. The ending was satisfying.
Try it, it may just be the most original story you ever read. One billion English teachers probably aren't wrong.
a terrible robotic reading of the story - i cannot really suggest anyone buying this - i had to stop it before it drove me crazy
yes, the robotic tone of voice really made me be unable to continue listening
Utterly wonderful. A paranoid meta-metaphor with a dark heart but redemption at the end (for the family, at least ...)
