    Jennifer Saunders' comic creations have brought joy to millions. From Comic Strip to Comic Relief, from Bolly-swilling Edina in Ab Fab to her takes on Madonna or Mamma Mia, her characters are household names. But it's Jennifer herself who has a place in all our hearts. This is her funny, moving, and frankly bonkers memoir, filled with laughter, friends, and occasional heartache - but never misery. Bonkers is full of riotous adventures.

    Where does Bonkers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A great listen, one of the best.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bonkers?

    When Jennifer reads the faxes sent from Joanna Lumley. I honestly cried laughing.


    What about Jennifer Saunders’s performance did you like?

    This book was made brilliant by Jennifer being the narrator. Her style of delivery would have been lost if I'd just read the book. Her ability to put the character rightin your ears was marvellous.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me laugh A LOT. I also wept a tear or two when she recounted her experiences with breast cancer. It was obvious that despite her "putting a brave face on it" that it was a horrid time for her but she came through with love and laughter.


    Any additional comments?

    This book will cheer you. I ended up driving 800 kilometres over two days so that I could listen to this book. I had a marvellous time....thank you Ms Saunders!

    This dazzling memoir promises to be a courageously frank, honest and poignant read. It will detail some of Fry's most turbulent and least-well-known years, with writing that will excite you, make you laugh uproariously, move you, inform you, and, above all, surprise you.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I know he loves his words but there were just too many needless ones.


    What could Stephen Fry have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Edit it!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Mr Fry as the narrator did not detract at all.
