Description

Benedict Cumberbatch reads Franz Kafka's famous story of man-turned-insect, Metamorphosis.

Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile

After a night of troubled dreams, Gregor Samsa wakes to discover that he has turned into a huge, monstrous, cockroach-like creature, with an armour-plated back and multiple limbs. 

Gradually, he comes to terms with his new state - but his parents and sister are horrified and increasingly revolted. To them, Gregor is unclean, verminous and entirely repellent, and as he becomes more and more of a burden, their horror turns to a terrible indifference.... 

First published in 1915, Kafka's surreal existential novella explores concepts such as the absurdity of life, alienation and the disconnect between mind and body. Read by Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Star Trek, The Imitation Game), this tale - often described as one of the greatest in the history of fiction - is chilling, captivating and darkly comic.

I don't get it...

I was hoping to learn the meaning of the term Kafka-esque. I have less of an idea what it means than before. I found the tale, while founded on an interesting premise, to be sad and devoid of meaning. it was like Naked Lunch without the nudity.

Very Sad

Emotional story of humanity and much more. With a narrator like this you want it to go on forever just to hear his voice. Beautiful job.

Disappointed

I love BC and this book but why is soooooo much edited out? It really ruins the translation and makes it utterly useless to use in a classroom. For a casual listen, it's good. For anything scholarly look elsewhere.

Sorry, not for me

As a classic one, I was expecting more. While the concept must have been new and provocative, the story is melancholic and becomes more depressing as story progresses. Sorry, not for me.

Classic.

I personally identify with many of Kafka's characters, especially with Gregor in "The Metamorphosis." Kafka's writings will make you think deeply about sacrifices made in vain.

Not stated that it is not the full text

It should be clearly stated that the reading is of a summarized version. I discovered this after listening to most of the book. The narrator is great - but we should be allowed to make an informed decision. I wanted to retrieve my credit and I couldn't especially knowing there is another version (Metamorphosis&other stories) that has the full translation and other short stories with the same credit needed.

it's a story where the moral is to be yourself

and I don't think many could really disagree with that assessment too much. poppinjay, poppinjay

As lovely as I remember

I read this story many years ago when in the 9th grade, and listening to it now with this delightful narration my view of the story is as good as it was if not better presently.
