The modern British philosopher, Anthony M. Ludovici, said that this text “is unquestionably Nietzsche’s opus magnum.” However, he warns the reader that since “the book with the most mysterious, startling, or suggestive title, will always stand the best chance of being purchased by those who have no other criteria to guide them in their choice than the aspect of a title-page … ‘Thus Spake Zarathustra’ is almost always the first and often the only one of Nietzsche’s books that falls into the hands of the uninitiated.” He therefore recommends reading this text alongside some scholarly annotations, which Ludovici gratefully supplies in the volume read here. To keep Ludovici’s intention, in this version of ‘Zarathustra’ the reader includes these annotations (where available) immediately after the reading. Summary by jvanstan (16 hr 24 min)

Too much drama - bad. The reader thinks he is playing broadway.

(1 Sterne)

the reader is too much to take in this rather hard book - he distracts with his useless dramatization.

Very clear and well done!

(5 Sterne)

Fascinating parables about finding strength and individuality despite the pressure of the conformist mob. Narrator reads very well and even has consistent voices for recurring characters.
