    For Ned, 1980 seems a blissful year. Handsome, charming, popular and talented, his life is progressing smoothly, effortlessly, happily. And when he meets the lovely Portia Fendeman his personal jigsaw appears complete. But timing is everything in life, and his life is about to change for ever. Things are going to get very bad indeed for innocent young Ned. A promise made to a dying teacher and a spiteful trick played by fellow pupils will rocket Ned from cricket captain to solitary confinement, from head boy to hell.

    If you could sum up The Stars' Tennis Balls in three words, what would they be?

    adolescent agonies, contrasted


    What did you like best about this story?

    Fry's reading - I enjoyed his acting the different characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the scene on the yacht - this was where I started to get really interested in the book


    Who was the most memorable character of The Stars' Tennis Balls and why?

    hmmm - hard. I think most of the main characters were really well drawn, and I identified with parts of several of them. Ned and Portia were the two whose stories I was most interested in through the book (though others were almost as memorable).


    Any additional comments?

    this took a short while (45mins?) to get into, but after that I really looked forward to the next installment & finding out what happened next. I recommend this book
