Great books, old translations, poorly read

Two great books. Beyond Good and Evil is read and not performed. I was able to tolerate this version but it not the best that Audible offers. Thus Spake Zarathustra is the older biblical style translation and is poorly read. I couldn’t get past the first four chapters and gave up in disgust. There is no passion in the reader’s voice for two books that were written full of emotion and passion. You are better off getting the individual books than this combined collection, which is inexpensive for a reason. Don’t waste your time with this version. So disappointed, since I love these two great books.

Great overview of a difficult Philosopher

This is a great introduction to anyone who is not familiar with one of the most difficult to understand Philosophers.


It is not a Audio Book for 1 or 2 sittings but a Book that should be listened to slowly so that you can absorb the material.


The Narrator handled the material well and gives the listener a better understanding of a often difficult to understand Philosopher.






This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Two essential texts from Nietzsche

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Nietzsche may be the most important philosopher of the past few centuries. However, his texts are dense and can be difficult to unpack. I've found that audiobooks, particularly during a commute, are an excellent way to absorb the material when narrated well.

Fortunately, this is an excellent reading of Nietzsche. With almost nineteen hours of reading and two long, brilliant books, I think it's an excellent value and a great way to access the classic texts. Strongly, strongly recommend these books are the way to understand Nietzsche.

needs to be reread

I definitely don't think Nietzsche is the type of work that should be in audible form. I guess you can easily go back and set up book marks. The work is simply too complicated to do well in this medium. However i thought they did a great job.

Poorly read

The speaker reads the text in an unnecessarily dramatized way that misrepresents and obfuscates the text, emphasizing the wrong words and failing to demarcate sentences and phrases. I do understand that Nietzsche is hard to read, but this unfortunately creates a significant additional layer of confusion.
