The story is only 43 pages long, the rest is commentary and criticism. "Ungeheuer" is translated as "vermin" in this translation, which isn't as exciting as "cockroach."

Man becomes bug and freaks out. Funny and scary and very weird.

"When Grefor Samsa woke up one morning from unsettling dreams, he found himself changed in his bed into a monstrous vermin." With this startling, bizarre, yet suprisingly funny first sentence, Kafka begins his masterpiece, The Metamorphosis.
