The Meowmorphosis | [Franz Kafka, Coleridge Cook]

The Meowmorphosis

Meet Gregor Samsa, a humble young man who works as a fabric salesman to support his parents and sister. His life goes strangely awry when he wakes up late for work and discovers that, inexplicably, he is now a man-sized baby kitten. His family freaks out: Yes, their son is OMG so cute, but what good is cute when there are bills to pay? As his new feline identity threatens to eat away at his personality, Gregor desperately tries to survive this bizarre, bewhiskered ordeal by accomplishing the one thing he never could as a man: He must flee his parents’ house.

Audible Editor Reviews

With perfect deadpan, Nicholas Techosky narrates this hilarious mash-up, The Meowmorphosis, by Franz Kafka and Coleridge Cook. Adding a little levity to this normally quite grave tale, Coleridge Cook has infused Kafka's classic with a little bit of fuzzy cuteness, swapping Kafka's vermin for a house pet. Listeners will chuckle through Techosky's performance of this not-so-classic classic. The seamless integration of Kafka's writing with Cook's is the key to the humor in this satirical take on a novel about the pressures of work and family.

Publisher's Summary

“One morning, as Gregor Samsa was waking up from anxious dreams, he discovered that he had been changed into an adorable kitten.” Thus begins The Meowmorphosis - a bold, startling, and fuzzy-wuzzy new edition of Kafka’s classic nightmare tale, from the publishers of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies! Meet Gregor Samsa, a humble young man who works as a fabric salesman to support his parents and sister. His life goes strangely awry when he wakes up late for work and discovers that, inexplicably, he is now a man-sized baby kitten. His family freaks out: Yes, their son is OMG so cute, but what good is cute when there are bills to pay? And how can Gregor be so selfish as to devote all his attention to a scrap of ribbon? As his new feline identity threatens to eat away at his personality, Gregor desperately tries to survive this bizarre, bewhiskered ordeal by accomplishing the one thing he never could as a man: He must flee his parents’ house.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story. This story just felt rushed and overly ironic. It was not an enjoyable read.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not a Quirk Classic. This book turned me off of that genre for a while.


    What didn’t you like about Nicholas Techosky’s performance?

    It felt a bit flat. To be honest, I disliked the story so much that it was difficult to judge his performance, though.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really. It felt like there were a bunch of Kafka references smashed in there for no reason.


    Any additional comments?

    I wanted to like this book- I really, really did. I love cats and I love Quirk Classics. It was a poor mix.
