As Gregor Samsa awoke from unsettling dreams one morning...

"Let me go to Gregor, he's my unfortunate son! Can't you understand that I must go to him?"

Both slightly unnerving and oddly appealing, Franz Kafka's Die Verwandlung (The Metamorphosis) made top list this week. After sitting down and skimming the first page, I found myself engrossed and quickly read through the novella's 47 pages. I must warn readers that the story is not a happy one, no matter how you spin it, but entirely worth your time.
