rating: 4 of 5 stars
It wasn't until reading some other reviews of this story that I realized that Gregor's turning into a bug was an analogy for what happens when someone gets a serious illness. OK. I'm slow.
It brings me back to my high school days when my wonderful English teacher gently chided me for not seeing the analogy to Christ in "The Old Man and the Sea." I had an excuse back then because I was new to the whole concept of analogies in literature. Now I'm just slow.
I recommend this story.
