I think this book would be more entertaining to read than to listen to, and I'm usually a big fan of audiobooks. This particular reader is rather plodding and sucks any humour out of the book. Also the reading is riddled with mispronunciations, including a number of groaning mispronunciations of famous artists' names (Joan Miro pronounced like Joan Cuzack, to give one example). You can't help wonder what it would have been like if Steve Martin had read it himself.
