5.0 out of 5 stars AN UNFORGETTABLE NIGHTMARE
Kafka's novella of an ordinary man metamorphosed into a beetle (or, as the German text puts it, 'ein ungeheures Ungeziefer', that is, a gigantic vermin) resembles the kind of nightmare which still haunts one while awake.

There's no english notes or key vocabulary list as seen in the amazon preview of the book. I guess it's good for 2 though.

Kafka's novella of an ordinary man metamorphosed into a beetle (or, as the German text puts it, 'ein ungeheures Ungeziefer', that is, a gigantic vermin) resembles the kind of nightmare which still haunts one while awake. The book has a moderately useful introduction and a helpful vocabulary. The Kindle version allows the reader, if (s)he has loaded a dictionary, to look up words while reading. The German is moderately difficult, but worth struggling with.

This review is from: Die Verwandlung (Paperback)
You can hardly grumble for the price, this is after all Kafka's timeless masterpiece, but be warned that book and the text are really small - note the product dimensions: 14.8 x 9.6 x 0.7 cm

1.0 out of 5 stars Annotation is inaccurate., 17 Jan 2011
By 
The notes seem to be from the pens of two secondary school teachers with a very tenuous grasp of German language and culture. Avoid; buy a German-language version, e.g. one of those tiny yellow books with annotations in German.
