Listener Opinions

    " La mejor traducción al castellano de esta obra es la Jorge Luis Borges. No puedo creer que haya tantas personas que den una puntuación tan baja a esta obra. Evidentemente hay mucha gente que se acostumbró a comer en McDonald`s y ya no puede saborear otra cosa... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zachary | 5/24/2011

    " Probably one of the saddest stories about human existence and family. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anthony | 5/23/2011

    " Hadn't read this since college, which is to say, 40 years ago. So of course I remembered nothing. It was a revelation to realize how simply written but overwhelmingly strange this story is. It really sets the bar for tales of personal alienation within the family and society. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Juan | 5/23/2011

    " Tan actual en aquel entonces como ahora. No nos convertimos en cucarachas (o escarabajos), porque seguimos siendo lo que somos en nuestros trabajos afines al sistema. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abbie | 5/22/2011

    " This story disturbed and fascinated me all at the same time. The catalyst is sort of gross, but the metaphor is amazing. I never want to be like his family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia | 5/22/2011

    " Very dense. Very short. Very symbolic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tbergamin | 5/22/2011

    " I read this book when I was fourteen - a long, long time ago - and I still remember it. This book made a lasting impression on me and rate it in the top 5 of books I have ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiff | 5/21/2011

    " My best friend loved this book and I couldn't understand how or why... I did like this better than The Trial. It's queer... as usual it's Kafka-esque but he hit isolation right on the dot! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 5/19/2011

    " Meant something different when I lived with cockroaches the size of puppies... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 5/19/2011

    " I read this story during one of my blissful days as an undergraduate at Bellarmine. It's a great story. It seems like the Republicans are trying to turn most of us into cockroaches without pensions or health care. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marianna | 5/18/2011

    " Interesting. Absolutely deserves more than one read. The critical essays I mostly skimmed, but a few ideas caught my eye. I did not see the three "roomers" as a representative phallus. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erika | 5/17/2011

    " This edition is half essays about the book, and I did not read the essays. My 4 star rating is just based on the story and the introduction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ross | 5/14/2011

    " If you have ever felt like an alien hiding among humanity this is a powerful work on disconnection and self image. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leonard | 5/11/2011

    " My thoughts on this book, don't put anyone before your self. Self Reliance is most important. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mj | 5/11/2011

    " Hmmm... A little weird - even for an English book. "

About the Author
Author Franz Kafka

Franz Kafka (1883–1924), one of the major fiction writers of the twentieth century, was born to a middle-class German-speaking Jewish family in Prague. His unique body of writing, much of which is incomplete and was mainly published posthumously, is considered by some people to be among the most influential in Western literature, inspiring such writers as Albert Camus, Rex Warner, and Samuel Beckett.
