Reviews - What do customers think about Die Verwandlung?

Classic 20th century German literature  Jun 28, 2006
Bleak tale about isolation, told through the story about a boy who changes into an insect. This was mandatory stuff in highschool days, but that was ok in this case, because it's good.
excellent  Apr 20, 2000
Kafka is brilliant, as most anyone who reads this book will soon realize. He dealves into different ranges such as the Jewish mysticism (Kabbalah). Possibly a little far out there due to his style for some, but I doubt it. The English translation is required reading in my IB school, but the german version (recommended by my Austrian teacher) was even better. One can delve deeper into the metaphor through the feelings behind every word and phrase. Kafka, like many Jews and people of that era, was the victim of severe isolation. Die Verwandlung portrays this feeling perfectly. This is bar none one of the best pieces of literature I have ever picked up.
Depends on what you like  Jan 31, 2000
Now this is really a strange book. As I'm German this was on the "to read" list in school. But to be true I enjoyed this story of a boy who finds himself transformed to an Insect. You certainly think that this book was written by a lunatic. But that is also where the fascination lies. I'd say read and see for yourselves!
