Have heard about this story and author for a while so was pleased to see it come out in the new Penguin book series. Also pleasantly surprised to find that not only does it contain the main story Metamorphosis, but in fact the complete works of Franz Kafka which includes two other short stories and dozens of other short pieces. The main story, ‘Metamorphosis’ is very thought provoking, surreal even, and well written. This book is well worth the price for what you get.

This collection brings together the small proportion of Kafka's works that he thought worthy of publication. It includes Metamorphosis, his most famous work, an exploration of horrific transformation and alienation; Meditation, a collection of his earlier studies; The Judgement, written in a single night of frenzied creativity; The Stoker, the first chapter of a novel set in America; and a fascinating occasional piece, The Aeroplanes at Brescia, Kafka's eyewitness account of an air display in 1909. Together, these stories reveal the breadth of Kafka's literary vision and the extraordinary imaginative depth of his thought.
