A Book in Review: The Meowmorphosis

The Meowmorphosis By: Franz Kafka & Coleridge Cook
Non-fiction, classics, humour 206 page
Book Count: 35

First, I would like to say that I was for more cats in classic lit, a decade ago. This book is another quirk classics book that combines classic lit. with fun changes. In this one instead of becoming a cockroach, Gregor Samsa wakes up to find that he has become a cat. He has the body of a very large cat, enjoys only foods that cats like, meows and likes cat type things, but part of him is still a man. This gets him in trouble with the other large number of men turned into cats in Prague. Besides the catness this is much like the original book and as such is a bit more depressing then other books remade. Like other books in the series there are Discussion Questions at the end. This ones varies between deep, humorous and just stupid.
