I'm not familiar with Paul Auster or his other works, but when I asked my boyfriend to recommend a book, this is what he told me to read. I can see why it would appeal to him. I knew a few pages in this particular book would appeal to a man more than a woman, but as a person who loves almost all genres, I gave it a try.
The story is depressing but we listeners know this from the start - anything that starts with what this guy has gone through will have a somber tone. For that matter, the reader was spot on for this tone, but the recording sounded a bit off (maybe aged?).
Personally it didn't really appeal to me but the story was intriguing so I stuck through to the end. Ladies, you may want to really think before getting this one. Guys, you may just like it. Silent movie fans, you will LOVE it.
If I were a man I might have given it 4 stars.
