One of Nietzsche's best works.
What about Steven Crossley’s performance did you like?
The narrator Steven Crossley did a superb job of capturing all of the nuances of Nietzcshe's writing. It was almost as if he was channeling Nietzsche. Great job. His voice is very easy to listen to as well. I could listen to him for hours.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I admittedly listened to only a little of this book (somewhat into the first chapter) but that is because the narrator spoke very dramatically with, annoyingly, a strong modulation in volume. Some words would be loud but then some would be inaudible. This is a particular problem with Nietzsche since he often looks at subtle concepts where hearing even the prepositions is important to grasping his point. Therefore, I switched to the narration by Alex Jennings which is better (and which uses a translation that also includes brief notes before each chapter).

Nietzsche is difficult to understand at the best of times, but this reading needlessly makes him more difficult to understand. Crossley’s reading of the words is good and enthusiastic, but he does not read out the section numbers. Without saying that this section is number such and such, it is difficult to know where one of Nietzsche’s thoughts has ended and another begins. This is especially bad in the Maxims and Interludes sections, where separate sentence-long aphorisms sound like a single paragraph.
