Nabokov is a master prose-writer. I really enjoyed the beauty and cleverness of his writing. After Lolita, this was the second book I listened to by Nabokov. I can't wait to listen to more of his works.
The story of the author is inspiring. He went from being a working class kid to becoming a successful businessman. However, the book is self-congratulatory and very light on any real insights. The book is mostly common sense. The predominant thought I had reading the book was that the author was not qualified and hadn't formed nearly enough original ideas to be writing a book.
