So i've recently become interested in Existentialism. I've tried reading Nietzche but cant really get into it.

A lot of people have put me off reading Sartre but I have ordered being and nothingness (?)

Does anyone have any other recomendations as this is the branch of philosiphy that I seem to have most in common with.

Thanks!

Have to start with Kierkegaard.

The father of existentialism.

If you're interested in Nietzsche, it'd be rude not to read Schopenhauer.

Heidegger is also an interesting read for the existentialist.
