Definitely worth listening to, if only to see what the fuss is all about. I really wanted to find out exactly what he had against god - but I remain confused.
He could have outlined a proposition, presented arguments to support it, argued against contrary arguments, and then made a killer conclusion. Sadly, he did none of these.
Oh dear dog, no. Maybe Monty Python could do a satire of it - but it already satirises itself, so they'd have precious little to do.
This book is written entirely as a series of numbered aphorisms, none appearing to have any relationship to any of the others. In each case I understood every word, understood the grammar and syntax, yet when it finished I had no idea at all what it was about. He remained completely and utterly inaccessible (to me).
Boy! Those Prussians sure didn't like the Jews, did they! I see where Adolf got it from.
This audiobook was well-presented and read in a pleasant voice - yet Nietzche's prose remains thick and turgic beyond the point of incomprehensibility.
