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.

probably the best novel ever written in German ;) If you start, you won't be able to stop reading. Enjoy

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

Kafka's Klassiker die Verwandlung ist ein Buch was man gelesen haben muss. Schon alleine, weil viele zeitgenössische Autoren sich auf dieses Werk beziehen.

Development of character's interaction and relationships with change of one feature brilliantly told. Reflect on our own way to change the way we interact with others when there are changes

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.

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.
