This didn't make any sense to me at first...just seemed like a lot of rambling. Things started to pick up and come together around the 4th chapter and then they got great, really great.
This is a story about a writer writing a story about an artist. The characters are terrific and the plot unexpected. Although the book is relatively short, I felt nothing was left out. It was concise and complex, and I was fully engaged to the end.
The narrator did an absolutely superb job. He's one of the best I've heard.

The first few chapters might get you worried, rest assured after this extended idle this novel gets going. The novel is an exploration of character and philosophy, which may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I really enjoyed it. The story examines the depth of the veneer of society and the utility of endeavor, even for art, at the expense of all else.

Without sinking into the drone of psycho-babble, WSM creates and explores really colourful characters whose interaction reveals the nature of human being. We travel with these characters through a most engaging story, told with incredibly vivid use of language. I always imagined there must be a story behind the paintings of Gaugin; here it is. The narration is first class. If you haven't yet heard this audiobook then a treat awaits you.
