A fantastic, fascinating and brilliant book to listen to if you love Stephen Fry. He tells the story so eloquently and interestingly, very vividly so that you can sink yourself into his life and his thoughts and memories. Well worth every hour of listening enjoyment
Wonderful stuff. Fry's mastery of English, interesting biographics and self-deprecating wit form an enticing amalgam. If you are a fan of Fry buy it!
Stephen Fry's wonderful voice, I could listen to him all day. Wonderful insight to a well known and interesting character.
Having Stephen read his own stories feels like sitting in the court yard of an old pub on a warm summer day and having a chat with him. Very entertaining and funny.
An excellent autobiography of Stephen the Cambridge student and young comedian, actor, entertainer, broadcaster and chronicler of the 80's and early 90's. All delivered with honesty and his sonorous Oxbridge accent. Entertaining and informative. Wonderful.
The book was amazingly funny and charming, and being read by the author only improved the experience.
The section on his years at collage were amazing.
Stephen Fry has a special talent for discussing thing in minute details in an extremely entertaining way.
It's both a description of an interesting person and and interesting time in British comedy.
Pathos, gravitas, humor, pleasant voice
The man who would be Oscar Wilde.
Stephens story is certainly not dull at any point and he at all times paints a very vivid picture during his chronicles. I was aware he had a shall we say a colourful past and his rise to fame is very well documented through these narrated pages. Very enlightening I shall be listening to his others with great interest.
Excellent. He writes warts and all in a relaxed flowing style that leaves you with the feeling you have been having a chat with a friend.Cant wait for the next installment. Take a bow Mr Fry
When he describes what Cocteau and him may do to entertain their guests. however, what Steven may do is going to be a lot less amusing!
The power of self-irony
