I skipped right to "The Penal Colony" and enjoyed it. Then I put the book down.

Metamorphosis and Other Stories. Translated with an Introduction. Uncertainty of outcome - as instanced in ‘The Judgement’, and then in ‘Metamorphosis’, ‘The Penal Colony’, ‘The Stoker’, and almost all the stories and novels - brings time into the equation. Kafka already had (in ‘The Sudden Walk’, in ‘A Fratricide’) drama, hooks, surprise twists. He comes to specialize in chords, in exquisitely geared sentences in which complex events are shown to be made up of divers things happening at different speeds, with different motivations and effects, at the same time

Reviews about The Metamorphosis, the Penal Colony, and Other Stories (Schocken Classics) (7):
Berenn
Contained in this short-story collection are many tales of bizarre, absurd, and tragic events. Kafka was certainly a good writer, but he has a very unique style that not everyone is going to like.

Much of this writing is done with long, rambling description that are so detailed and so depressing that if you have my sense of humor, they become funny. For those anime fans reading this, it's a lot like the Monogatari series. I seriously can't tell if you'll like these stories or not, but I did.

Kafka remains Kafka, a riddle

I enjoyed this edition very much. It is a well-readable translation in a nice quality hardback with good paper. Unless one is a Kafka devotee, this plus "The Trial" will satisfy almost any reader.
HappyLove
Existentialism abounds in this collection of all the works Kafka published in his lifetime. This is an indispensable book for anybody interested in Kafka, but it does take a fair amount of reflection to grasp what message Kafka is communicating. Many of his short stories are collections of more short stories—some as short as a paragraph. Although at times seemingly disjointed, the common thread of what it means to exist and how it is we find our own meaning in life brings the stories together in a haunting way.

This book turned out to be newer version with different cover art
Tehn
His stories were always different and interesting. Some of his stories you scratch your head at the last page and think " what in the world was he talking about ?" But always an experience.
GAMER
Whatever sexuality and violence referenced are implied raather than overt; what violence is overt, it is tame compared to 21st century United States standards.
Brod got a good bit of it wrong. The Trial was of course well worth saving from the fire, but that and this collection of stories would have well set a legacy unto themselves. Though I think the Muirs translation is rather clunky, the stories themselves are just magnificent. I hadn't actually read The Metamorphosis since grad school, and even now being able to look behind the curtain a bit is of no problem and only lends further depth to my awe. My absolute fav remains In the Penal Colony--a story as biting now in its handling of tradition and its adherents as any. Kafka is a name for a reason, and not because Brod saved a lot of fragments from the flame. This collection is more than most writers could ever hope to accomplish.
