"Lovely insight into Stephen Fry"
A wonderful listen, getting to know more about a lovely man. Honest and witty
"everything I'd hoped it would be."
just as I had hoped this book was entertaing and interesting. There are highes and lows and many laughes.
I really enjoyed this. Both interesting, educational and fun. Looking forward to the next instalment. I would recommend this book.
"I value Stephen's raw honest"
Moab Is My Washpot is a frank, brutally honest, witty portrayal of Stephen's early life. Though often told with a whimsical undertone Stephen's takes the reader on an insightful and in-depth journey through his school years. I enjoy Stephen's writing style and his narration is excellent and easy to listen to.
"Insightful and amusing."
This the first book of three is extremely frank honest and well written. this book focuses primarily on his childhood and is full of hilarious stories and fun little facts.
Stephen Fry is of course; a wonderful narrator and the audio quality is good.
"Fantastically written and read"
Not only does Mr.Fry have a very interesting life story, he also tells it very well. I also wish I had his linguistic capabilities.
"Love me a bit of the Fry"
Amazing as always. I loved this as a book and love Stephens voice when he reads it. Soothing and wonderful
Honest open autobiography. He isn't as posh as he sounds, very down to earth. A very likeable character which make his life story easy to listen to and full of comedy moments.
"Honest, Very interesting"
Stephen's voice calms and guides you though the early years of his life through to early adult and the 'nick'. Having owned the paper version the audio makes you listen again n again.
Naturally his second memoir.
Makes you feel its just Stephen and you across a dinner table having a chat.
Yes, and have.
A very honest, and interesting early life.
It is better than the print edition because its actually read by the author and Stephen Fry has the most delightful way of telling you the story of his early years. You hear and feel in some cases the emotions connected with the story and can hear his smile when its a good part and sometimes the sadness when its not such a nice remembrance. He holds nothing back and its a frank and honest rollercoaster through the early part of his life.
I loved the story of a primary age Stephen proudly taking a dead mole for the nature table in the desperate need for a gold star to be upstaged again by the same school mate as always with a donkey in the playground, the following chaos when confronted later with the consequences of death and decay are both sad and hilarious.
I have listened to a couple of other Stephen Fry performances ( Harry Potter - not available on Audible) and a short on Puns but this by far is my favourite to date because it is his own story and his own words. The way he delivers them is almost like having a nice conversation with him and I love his way of performing like he knows each and every listener.
His description of falling in love for the first time is very moving and quite sweet.
BUY BUY BUY this audiobook its a really good listen and Stephen Fry truly is a National Treasure.
