Read from February 23 to March 27, 2011

I listened to this book on audio, and although Steve Martin was not the reader, I could hear his voice, which I enjoyed. I learned quite a bit more about the world of art and auction than I knew (which was half a notch above zero). I felt the time span of the book (many years) took power away from the story, and long before the end I didn't care for or care about the main character. I found the motivations of the narrator not quite believable, and it never seemed like his story, even though he ends the telling. I very much liked the open-endedness of the telling, though.
