Meet the Author

Franz Kafka (3 July 1883 - 3 June 1924) was a German-language writer of novels and short stories, regarded by critics as one of the most influential authors of the 20th century. Kafka strongly influenced genres such as existentialism. His works, such as "Die Verwandlung" ("The Metamorphosis"), Der Process (The Trial), and Das Schloss (The Castle), are filled with the themes and archetypes of alienation, physical and psychological brutality, parent-child conflict, characters on a terrifying quest, and mystical transformations.

I cannot bare rreading so many typos in an ebook.

My low rating doesn't reflect Kafka's writing whatsoever - this is an enjoyable classic from a master. My comments focus on this specific epub copy of the story from B&N. It appears this was OCR'ed from a paper document into epub format but never edited afterwards. There are numerous glitches like random characters and spots where the OCR guessed words incorrectly. It's only a 15 page story so cleaning it up would have taken very little time. I would expect a better showing from a title available from B&N, even if it's free. B&N, if you want a corrected copy, I'll volunteer!
