About book The Meowmorphosis (2011)

A reworking of Kafka's Metamorphosis where the protagonist is not turned into a cockroach, but a cute kitten. With a new middle section where the cat Gregor goes into the wider world and seems to wander into The Trial.Strange book, this. Mostly a direct transcription of the original (with "cat" instead of "cockroach"), which occasionally does not work, with a fresh middle that attempts to tease out the messages of the original and what it means to be a cat all at the same time. The new stuff read much quicker to the modern eye than the original, I think, and was certainly more entertaining than the morose moping around the bedroom that the rest of the book focuses on.But it doesn't really take, in the end. Rated PG for some scary scenes. 2/5 I made the mistake of reading this book, not having read the original. I had a rough idea what the original was about but after a few pages, I thought it would be a good idea to read a critique or two about it. That helped. What didn't help was the fact that this book was just down right grim and the fact that the protagonist turns into a cat (an animal that I love), made it even worse. I found the author's brief 'biography' and the 'study/book club' type questions at the back quite funny and actually enjoyed those parts more than the story, itself.If you are a fan of cats, don't read this book. If you are a fan of Kafka, for goodness sake, read a funny novel!

Do You like book The Meowmorphosis (2011)?

Very strange. The kitten aspect was adorable. The message was great too.

I'm not feline to good about this waste of time.

A bit strange, which was expected.

Don't even bother.
