This book is great. Samsa is engulfed in the little world he lives in and so alienated to himself that when he finds himself transformed into a giant bug one morning, his first though is that he will be late to work. A must for anyone who wants to see how much of ourselves we are losing every day.
I understand that it should be important, but...no. Just...no. I've read it several times, each time hoping to find a new appreciation of it, but I just can't manage to like it. It just leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
