The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka (adapted by Peter Kuper)

There's nothing quite like reading the graphic novel adaptation of a novel written by a Czechoslovakian who wrote the story in German! Overall, it's a thought-provoking story, and to me it asked the following questions: are you willing to accept the consequences of devoting your entire life to helping other people who are perfectly capable of helping themselves? Also, will those you have helped be willing to make sacrifices for you when you need their help? It will be a good basis for another conversation with my philosopher-daughter.
