Nietzsche was one of the most revolutionary and subversive thinkers in Western philosophy, and Thus Spoke Zarathustra remains his most famous and influential work. It describes how the ancient Persian prophet Zarathustra descends from his solitude in the mountains to tell the world that God is dead and that the Superman, the human embodiment of divinity, is his successor.

In my uneducated opinion, Nietzsche is really good fun in bitesize bits and by all accounts a mighty thinker, but this is disturbing as philosophy and turgid as literature

This is a book I will probably never finish. I look at it from time to time. I doubt I will ever read it front to back.
