I'm always reading something, usually multiple books at a time.

Listened to Part 1 and started Part 2

Invisible - Paul Auster

I was a little wary upon hearing the announcement, at the beginning of this recording, that this was to be read by the author.  That is so often the kiss of death with an audiobook.  But this is one of those cases where it works.  Auster's narration does nothing to detract from the story, nothing to make me cringe and fervently wish he'd hired a professional narrator.

 

Part 1 turns out to be the start of an autobiographical manuscript that is,  in turn, discussed in part 2.  I'm a sucker for meta-narratives, so I'm definitely hooked.
