This is my second time to read this book. The first time I read this book was in highschool. Honestly, I didn't understand at all. Then more than 10 years later, I read this book again. This time, I felt something from reading this book. Even though the story is very dark, it will strike your mind very hard and you will find yourselves in the story.

I like that Gregor turns into a bug and just acts like it's alright. 'Oh,well, I'm a cockroach. Best try and get out of bed and go to work. lalala.' From Kafka's books that I've read, The Metamorphasis and The Trial,his characters get faced with something that would freack any one in the real world out but they just accept it and try to carry on. If I tryed to think on it there'd be a lesson to be learned from that.

I felt this was an average story. It had its moments though.

This book shows how man is left behind, forgoten about, just because of his outside apperance...a bug.
