あらすじ・解説

Benedict Cumberbatch reads Franz Kafka's famous story of man-turned-insect, Metamorphosis.

Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile

After a night of troubled dreams, Gregor Samsa wakes to discover that he has turned into a huge, monstrous, cockroach-like creature, with an armour-plated back and multiple limbs. 

Gradually, he comes to terms with his new state - but his parents and sister are horrified and increasingly revolted. To them, Gregor is unclean, verminous and entirely repellent, and as he becomes more and more of a burden, their horror turns to a terrible indifference.... 

First published in 1915, Kafka's surreal existential novella explores concepts such as the absurdity of life, alienation and the disconnect between mind and body. Read by Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Star Trek, The Imitation Game), this tale - often described as one of the greatest in the history of fiction - is chilling, captivating and darkly comic.

Very Sad

Emotional story of humanity and much more. With a narrator like this you want it to go on forever just to hear his voice. Beautiful job.

Disappointed

I love BC and this book but why is soooooo much edited out? It really ruins the translation and makes it utterly useless to use in a classroom. For a casual listen, it's good. For anything scholarly look elsewhere.

As lovely as I remember

I read this story many years ago when in the 9th grade, and listening to it now with this delightful narration my view of the story is as good as it was if not better presently.

Weak Kafkian story with a good performance!

After listening in 2018 to the beautifully crafted story that is "The Trial", I had high hopes for Metamorphosis, and I was very disappointed. This book is very weak compared to "The Trial". It's a great delusional Kafkian style book, but it's also very weak in the story.

Kafka’s Masterpiece About The Human Condition

A very original metaphor brought to life by a great production. However, much was cut and some dialogue seems like it was added. Worth the credit for the excellent production, but if you want to read the unabridged version then you will need to look elsewhere.

classics are classic for a reason

I found the characters moving and relatable. the ending left quite an impression and the journey there was both entertaining nd moving. the setting of the story was simple and an excellent back drop for something so unusual.

Enjoyed the narration more than the story.

I found this a strange but interesting story, not something I would usually listen to but got because I am a big fan of Benedict. His narration is amazing, such a rich voice and i like how he gives the characters their own voices too. I dont think I completely understood the meaning of the story but enjoyed it nonetheless. Would definitely recommend to other Benedict fans, and would listen again just for the narration.

Enjoyable with great narration

Great metaphor of young male anxiety about work, sense of belonging, intimacy, parental approval, sibling love.

Balcony Columnshaft has a really fitting pronunciation and accent for this novella.

Bit odd

The reading of the book is fantastic and the book itself it’s also quite great. But you need to have a strong understanding of literature to appreciate the critiques in it. I unfortunately don’t so found it a bit difficult.

Beautifully read, strange and sad

For such a short story, Metamorphosis packs a powerful emotional punch, which is made all the greater by Benedict Cumberbatch's beautiful narration. He draws every ounce of feeling from the words, without ever crossing the line into melodrama.

great story, fantastic narration

The story was a wondeful commentary on capitalist society and the family, while Benedict Cumberbatch's narration was perfect.

Franz by Benedict Cumberbatch

BC reads the story in a way that makes it easily deciphered and able to follow, a problem I had when reading the book solo.

The voice makes the book!

Was a great book for an easy afternoon listen. Benedict Cumberbatch's voice did Kafka true justice.
