Read in December, 2007

I feel blasphemous criticising Kafka's work... but I wasn't very impressed with this short story. I'm sure much of it was lost in translation, but I didn't feel Kafka went into much depth with his characters. Gregor Samsa was in an unbelievable and chilling situation... yet I didn't sense much devastation and despair in his reaction to his predicament. Then again, I breezed through the story in between commercials during a TV show, so maybe I just wasn't reading it properly (; Two stars for the increasingly gloomy tone of the story though, that was brilliantly constructed!
