The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka

4/5

Very well written, interesting...after perusing the internet for what it "means", I discovered that it means whatever you think it means. To me, it describes very well the fate of so-called "useless" people in modern society. The infirm, the invalid - are seen as nothing but an embarrassing, disgusting burden on their families, who eventually seek only the relief of the useless person's death. Brings up the question: is life valuable in itself, or only for what it can materially produce?
