Publisher's Summary

Franz Kafka's profound and disturbing novella Metamorphosis was first published in German in 1915.

Excellent Performance - Not too keen on modernism

Had to read this story for a college class. I understand that it is a classic and an exemplar of the early modernist/existentialist movement in literature. I found the performance to be excellent even though these type of stories don't necessarily appeal to me. Hence the 5 stars on performance and 4 on the story.
Thx. for reading!

A Very Faithful And Clear Narration of The Classic Kafka Tale

This is a very well read narration of Metamorphosis. The story itself, of course, is bizarre. However this performance is excellent. I read this translation while listening and the reading was very faithful and clear.
