Is Kafka's Metamorphosis just a load of pants?
'When Gregor Samsa woke up one morning from uneasy dreams, he found himself changed in his bed into a monstrous insect'
So begins Kafka's famous novella which I just finished reading.
So Gregor the cockroach feels embarrassed at his condition, then later angry then later sad. His family feel embarrassed then angry then ashamed. Gregor falls into depression then dies alone in his room. Then the family feel a bit happier. The end.

I didn't make past the first chapter of The Greatest Novel in the English Language. James Joyce can stick his Ulysses where the sun don't shine, as far as I'm concerned.
PS - agree about Kafka.
