Finally, @Markk. Finally. I am so sorry it has taken this long.
I've just finished the first chapter, and can already tell the following:
- This is going to be a chapter a night read.
- Prideaux is quite good at setting the scene and describing the circumstances of Nietzsche's life, but I am also conscious that I might read this with the benefit of having prior knowledge of the subject, time, geography, and works and people that have been mentioned so far.
