Publisher's Summary

The Antichrist and Ecce Homo were two of the last works written by Friedrich Nietzsche just before his mental collapse in 1889. Though both written in 1888, they are very different in content and style.

In The Antichrist, Nietzsche expands on his view that the submissive nature of Christianity undermined Western society, depressing and sapping energy. Using a challenging, aphoristic style, he considers 'good' and 'bad', Buddhism and Christianity, and criticises the concepts of sin, faith, and pity as proposed in the Christian tradition, declaring that they undermined a zest for life.

Ecce Homo is effectively Nietzsche's autobiography. Writing in his idiosyncratic, urgent manner, he focuses on carefully chosen topics as he reviews his life and work. Among the chapter headings are: 'Why I Am so Wise' and 'Why I Am so Clever'. But like so much of Nietzsche, the effect is not quite as bombastic as might be expected - it is a fascinating document.

Narrator is intolerable

I managed to suffer through 25 minutes. Will just purchase a different narrator so that I may enjoy this book again

Two Great Books

These two books by Nietzsche are notorious, polemical, and insightful into the authors most intimate thoughts and revealing his character. The reading is of a superior nature and excellently done. The overall performance is only 4 stars because the books are based on older translations, however the conception of thought is still clearly presented except for some small nuances. Definitely a tremendous bargain and well worth the purchase price!

Good

There are no chapter titles. As a result, I tossed one perfectly good phone into the river in frustration and because of that I have to knock this review down to 4 stars.

Moving along. The narration of Ecce Homo, no easy task, was good and had an interesting style that made me laugh. The work itself imparts wisdom, almost like indirect advice. There's nothing else like it.

The narration of The Antichrist was acceptable. I won't seek out another version because this one was clear and didn't bother me.

Excellent narration

Conveys Nietzsche quite ‘accurately’ - as vivid as can be, not compromising- Nietzsche wouldn’t have appreciated that

Thank you

You're far better off taking the time to read it

Nietzsche's books are really complex & his writing takes a lot of time to really sink in. I wouldn't recommend listening to his audiobook - instead, get a paperback & read it slowly (and repeatedly). Not something suited to an audiobook I don't think.

A Very Deep Synopsis Of Some Of Neitzshe Works

Heavy going and sometimes self-described work by the man.
I can see where a person such as Hitler would have adored these works, but there is a conflict in that statement, as Neitzshe was not antisemiti , indeed, quite the opposite, so where Hitler picked up his hatred for News must be in other people's writing.
Altogether I enjoyed this book but I could have given this man many counter- arguments against some of his philosphies.
