I've listened to a few memoirs read by the author and a few other (only non-fiction) books as well. I have to say that in each case I thought the author ill-served by the narrator. At this point, I'd have to be really motivated to listen to a book if it were read by the author; it's an automatic turn-off.

I guess I've been very fortunate.
The Stephen Hawking-read lectures aside, "Read by the Author" is still something that I tend to look for because of some great past experiences, with fiction and non-fiction both.
