Thanks to a last minute Christmas gift I'm in the process of buying Friedrich Nietzsche's : Philosopher of Culture book, and before I throw my money away I would really like to hear from people who have read his work what they think about him.

If you have a better recommendation for a different book, don't hesitate to tell me to buy that instead. I just might.

Nietzsche's writings, every last one of them, are all well worth reading. One of the greatest thinkers to have ever lived, and whilst the twisting of his work by the Nazis has soiled his good name, I still would recommend his work to anyone. I doubt there has been as good a philosopher on the subject of morality, and the relativity of it, how morality is very much a human construct and not an absolute in nature, in all of history.

Perhaps the Grug series may tickle your taste, or even Cliffords day out, its an extremely wonderfull story about a huge red dog who goes to the beach.

Just bought Rose Boys by Peter Rose for educational purposes. Wouldn't mind someone reading it as well so I can have some help with future essays I need to write for English classes :P Or Macbeth by Shakespeare or Montana 1948 :D
