“The Metamorphosis” isn’t just one of the best books under 100 pages, it’s one of the best books, period. It’s a great little novel that serves as an excellent introduction to Kafka for anyone unfamiliar with his work. The book details the transformation of the main character from a man into an insect, in uniquely Kafkaesque fashion. The book proceeds to delve into his adaptation to his new life, although it never precisely explains why this happened. For a short introduction to Kafka, it’s a great choice.
