The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka


I am absolutely blown away by Kafka's writing style.  I have never read a book that has left such a profound imprint on my heart.  Though its a very melancholy story the message rings true.  Throughout the majority of the book the main character cannot speak or express his thoughts or emotions nor does the author project any emotion upon you.  His word pictures are created through actions, circumstances, and environment.  The rest is left up to you.  I think the emotion received is more a reflection of the readers soul.  Brilliant.

Here is a short review that does't give away too much info but sums it up very well:
