Franz Kafka is one of the 20th century's most influential authors. His novella "The Metamorphosis" and his novels The Trial and The Castle are regarded among the most original works of modern Western literature. Coleridge Cook, writing under a different name, is a beloved fantasy novelist and blogger as well as the winner of several prestigious literary awards.

I had high hopes for this as I have read other literary mash-ups. But somehow, this one just did not work for me. Read morePublished on September 20, 2012 by Zombob
Once again Coeridge has taken a classic and spoofed it in a fun and interesting manner. While all the essence of the original tale of The Metamorphosis is still intact, the whit... Read morePublished on July 16, 2012 by CCGal
Ok so I' ve the real one and this one. I found that the beginning of story was really cute. However the end was the SAME end as the real story which does not make sense because he... Read morePublished on March 5, 2012 by e
