Summary

No wonder Elias Canetti described it as "one of the few great and perfect works of the poetic imagination written". The Metamorphosis remains one of the best works of fiction in history.
It is the story of a traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa, who wakes up to find himself being transformed to an insect-like creature. The story unfolds into one of the greatest short fiction stories ever written.

Bugs

Utterly wonderful. A paranoid meta-metaphor with a dark heart but redemption at the end (for the family, at least ...)

Is this really a person narrating?

What didn’t you like about Tim Campbell’s performance?

The narration totally bums this version out....it could almost be a computer reading this...is it?

terrible

Where does The Metamorphosis rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

a terrible robotic reading of the story - i cannot really suggest anyone buying this - i had to stop it before it drove me crazy

Did Tim Campbell do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

no

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

yes, the robotic tone of voice really made me be unable to continue listening
