2.0 out of 5 stars Less Engaging Than Expected 22 Feb 2014
By Kristin King, Author - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've heard of Franz Kafka for so many years and was pleased to find The Metamorphosis leading a collection of stories for audio. Kafka's work begins very slowly, is terribly drawn out, and actually repeats itself. Once the doors open to others encountering the changed man, the interactions make the work more interesting, but on the whole this didn't even live up to standards I expect with classic literature, serials, or imaginative writing. I guess the renown is all based on how revolutionary the premise was at the time and also upon all the interpretations scholars and students read into the piece. Personally, I was left disappointed.

The additional stories were all unfamiliar to me and also had further dark tones. The Graveyard was perhaps the best of them, or perhaps the one about the woman who lived her life as expected only to reveal how she coped and made do when her will is read after her death. Today writers are beaten down with "Show, Don't Tell" as a hard rule of writing. These stories, like many of the era, were not seen as unpublishable even though they violate the rule as a norm.

My lack of engagement with the tales as a whole makes me wonder if I am not the product of such a visual, digital, fast moving age, and thus through faults entirely my own find it difficult to appreciate this style of story telling.
