Many of the stories I found deplorable, but a select few were so incredibly glorious that they made up for the trifles. A report to an Academy is a triumphant account of an ape turned intellect. Jackals and Arabs is the most prolific story on the war between Jews and Muslims ever written, and Eleven Sons is an interesting account by a father observing his offspring in an analysis only Kafka could bring to life. Some stories of note with a rating out of ten:

The Judgment 9/10
The Stoker 3/10
Metamorphosis 5/10
A Country Doctor 6/10
Jackals and Arabs 10/10
The Next Village 6/10
Eleven Sons 8/10
A Dream 7/10
A Report to an Academy 10/10
A Fasting-artist 9/10 ( )

I've always been a Kafka fan. This was a nice edition since it contained several stories. Personally I think everyone should read "The Metamorphosis" it gives and interesting perspective on what can happen to a man who has no life. ( )
