    You really can't go wrong with either or.

    Hesse's Siddhartha is a great book, and you'll want to read and then reread it again later.
    Very good book, but it's calm in nature, as it's fiction, filled with deep moral messages.
    A real page turner, and most people read through it quickly.

    Nietzsche's books are a bit heavy on the mind and although they are very good, they are definitely aren't as 'fun' unless you have an active mind.
    Zarathustra is likely one of Nietzsche's more interesting books but it's rare that somebody truly understands Nietzsche without reading all (or most) of his books.
