Just read another infamous work which has been always mentioned as a must-read book.
It’s “The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka”
My first thought??
Kafka is a genius!!!
If I try to sum up my thoughts in one line it would be something like:
Your esteem, your worth, your dreams, your entire world comes crashing down in the blink of an eye the moment you step down from your throne. And then it goes downhill towards its ultimate inevitable devastation.
It’s one of the most thought provoking, soul stirring, brutally honest books that I have read so far.
I am envious of Kafka’s mastery of condensing massive poisonous reality of unfortunate sudden tragedy occurring to a helpless soul, and heartless brutality that follows by his own people, in just a few pages.
A friend keeps on telling me that life goes on, nobody is going to stop pursuing their life, their dreams their happiness for you. This whole concept is evidently portrayed in the story.
I have sunk into stupor…
Somewhere we all have endured parallel situation at least once in our lives.
It’s just that some of us survived, some of us succumbed to the hostility.
