Franz Kafka's "The Metamorphosis." One of the most depressing stories I've ever read in college.

La metamorfosis (Die Verwandlung, en su título original en alemán) es un relato de Franz Kafka, publicado en 1915 y que narra la historia de Gregor Samsa, un comerciante de telas que vive con su familia a la que él mantiene con su sueldo, quien un día amanece convertido en un enorme insecto (aparentemente, una cucaracha, aunque no se identifica claramente en el texto).
"What if I slept a little more and forgot about all this nonsense." - Die Verwandlung (The Metamorphosis), Franz Kafka- Still remember this from junior high!
I cannot make you understand, I cannot make anyone understand what is happening inside me. I can't even explain it to myself - Franz Kafka, Metamorphosis
'Metamorphosis- Franz Kafka--- One of the seminal works of literature from the 20th century, Metamorphis tells the story of Gregor Samsa, a salesman who wakes up to find himself transformed into a giant insect. *FREE* #rekiosk #free #ebooks #kafka
The Metamorphosis (German: Die Verwandlung) is a novella by Franz Kafka, first published in 1915. It is often cited as one of the seminal works of fiction of the 20th century and is widely studied in colleges and universities across the western world. The story begins with a traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa, waking to find himself transformed into a monstrous insect-like creature. It is my favorite book of all time.
The Macabre And the Beautifully Grotesque Bookcover for Franz Kafkas novella, The Metamorphosis (1st pub. 1915). "The Metamorphosis" (Die Verwandlung, also sometimes termed "The Transformation") tells a tale of a young man Gregor Samsa, waking to find himself transformed into a monstrous vermin, becomes a burden to his family, and eventually dies of starvation. It is never explained in the story why Samsa transforms, nor did Kafka ever give an explanation.

In this book/ movie it is very clear that if you are smaller or weaker than the rest of the gang you become the pet. This creates unnecessary competition between boys to be stronger and tougher.

Banned Book, High School, Jd Salinger, Reading List, Booksbooksbook, Favorite Books, Books Book
Since its publication in 1951, 'The Catcher in the Rye' has been a focal point for censorship. One of the most recent attempts to remove it from a school reading list was in 2009 at the Big Sky High School in Missoula, Montana.
Catcher in the Rye I reread this thinking I missed all the greatness and story line during high school. Sadly, I still didn't like it and still think the books cover is 100% better than the book itself.
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger JUN 2014 - Hyde Park Book Club Read a long time ago; on my to re-read list and was a book club selection (I didn't go) Holden narrates the story of a couple of days in his sixteen-year-old life, just after he's been expelled from prep school, in a slang that sounds edgy even today and keeps this novel on banned book lists.

Books Movies, The Outsiders, Young Adult, High School, Books I Ve, Books Books, Favorite Books, Time Favorite, Stay Gold
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton is definitely one of the best classic novels read in high schools. Although the novel is based on two gangs of boys, “greasers” and the “Socs” it is a great read for both male and female audiences, as it is relatable to the young adult audience and holds strong messages in the themes such as, friendship, love, and loss. (Francesca)
From blog post titled 'S.E Hinton’s ‘The Outsiders’ and Why We Don’t Stay Gold': "‘Stay gold Ponyboy,’ says Johnny before he dies. It is a line from S. E. Hinton’s seminal Young Adult book The Outsiders that has entrenched itself in our culture. It is about not losing all of our innocence and it may seem hopelessly melodramatic, but as Hinton says herself, it works, ‘because kids feel that way.’"
The Outsiders - Back in high school, I was Ponyboy. This book spoke to me in so many ways; it is honest, true, and has many great applicable morals. Definitely top notch. Stay gold, Ponyboy.
The Outsiders. One of my all time favorite books as a young girl. I cried when I finished reading it because it was over.
The Outsiders - I remember reading this in school then watching the movie. One of my favorite books, ever...Stay gold.
(*One of my all time favorite books. I was about 13 or 14 when I first read this book and I could swear that the author followed me around my whole life and wrote down everything I'd ever felt. It made a powerful impact on me. I related to so many of the characters, I felt they were my friends.Stay gold,Ponyboy,stay gold._LL)
Outsiders, The By: Susan E. Hinton Lost References: In the flashback scene in the van, Hurley's friend Johnny says to him, "Stay gold, Ponyboy." This is a quote from the Outsiders, which is itself a reference to the Robert Frost poem "Nothing Gold Can Stay". In the novel, Johnny Cade's last words are "Stay gold, Ponyboy. Stay gold." ("Everybody Hates Hugo")
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton one of my all time favorite books/movie

An incredibly powerful story about how quickly one's life can change. When Mia and her family get into a car accident, Mia is stuck watching herself from above fighting for her life in ICU. Told from Mia's point of view, Forman's powerful prose makes this gripping story beautiful and painful at the same time. Mia must decide whether she should stay and wake up or move on, but the choice is hers. Highly recommended and will also be a movie this august.

Charlotte's Web by E.B. White #Children #Books #Literacy #MeetingStreetAcademy #ShermanFinancialGroup
Charlotte's Web By White, E. B. [HarperTrophy, $7.99 pb] Wilbur, a lovable pig, is rescued from a cruel fate by a beautiful and intelligent spider named Charlotte. "Told with delicacy, humor, and wisdom . . . a perfect blending of fantasy and complete realism".--"Booklist". Newbery Honor Book; ALA Notable Children's Books of 1940-1970.

"Charlotte's Web" by E.B. White. This book was banned/censored because talking animals are "blasphemous and unnatural". They also banned/censored it because of the death of Charlotte apparently is an inappropriate subject for a children's book. Here is what they said word for word about the book: "Humans are the highest level of God’s creation and are the only creatures that can communicate vocally. Showing lower life forms with human abilities is sacrilegious and disrespectful to God."
Charlotte's Web: This is truly a gem of a children’s book. Beautifully woven, it touches on some major themes (dealing with grief/loss, the wonders of friendship) and does so gracefully. It begins with a little runt of a pig who is destined to be killed because he is so small. When the farmer’s daughter (Fern) finds out, she pleads with her dad to let him live. He agrees, and the pig is named Wilbur. When he is sold to a barn a ways away Fern is sad, but still visits him. In the wake of this major life change, Wilbur befriends a spider named Charlotte. The story that follows is a touching one about the incredible friendship between Charlotte and Wilbur, and the impact one very small being can make.
