The metamorphosis and other stories

Kafka, Franz, 1883-1924.


Virtually unknown during his lifetime, Franz Kafka is now one of the world's most widely read and discussed authors. His nightmarish novels and short stories have come to symbolize modern man's anxiety and alienation in a bizarre, hostile, and dehumanized world. This vision is most fully realized in Kafka's masterpiece, " The Metamorphosis ," a story that is both harrowing and amusing, and a landmark of modern literature.


Blood and Chocolate

Klause, Annette Curtis.

TEEN LARBALE

Hold me closer, necromancer

McBride, Lish.

Sisters red

Pearce, Jackson.

TEEN PEARCE

Not your ordinary wolf girl

Pohl-Weary, Emily.

TEEN POHL WE

When teenage rock star Sam Lee is bitten by a strange creature in Central Park, she discovers she is turning into a werewolf, and must unravel the mystery of the supernatural world before her bandmates and the media find out.


Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and other stories

Stevenson, Robert Louis, 1850-1894.

FIC STEVENS

Robert Louis Stevenson originally wrote "Dr. Jekyll And Mr Hyde" as a " chilling shocker." He then burned the draft and, upon his wife's advice, rewrote it as the darkly complex tale it is today. Stark, skillfully woven, this fascinating novel explores the curious turnings of human character through the strange case of Dr. Jekyll, a kindly scientist who by night takes on his stunted evil self, Mr. Hyde.


Shiver

Stiefvater, Maggie, 1981-

TEEN STIEFVA

In all the years she has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house, Grace has been particularly drawn to an unusual yellow-eyed wolf who, in his turn, has been watching her with increasing intensity.


The Island of Dr. Moreau

Wells, H. G.

FIC WELLS

Modern day practices such as gene-splicing and bioengineering are foretold in H.G. Well's haunting visionary fable. The book created a sensation when it first appeared in 1896, and Wells himself later deemed the work "an exercise in youthful blasphemy."
