Mr. Auster did a fantastic job with the narration. His precise, rich voice matches his prose style better than the other narrators of his other books could do. I will say, however, that books like Timbuktu do well to have a different voice actor because of the main character's odd tone. Auster does not have the range of a professional actor, and cannot perform many distinct characters, but for this book his voice was perfect.
The story itself was fascinating and devastating. Auster does a great job of portraying a sane and calm person at the end of his rope. The only thing I did not like about the book was its title--it is somewhat forgettable.
