    "Excellent"

    To listen to such an eloquent man, talking so candidly about his loves, dreams triumphs and self deprecation is fascinating. I started this with no pre-conceptions I have arrived at a place of profound respect for Mr Fry and will never see him in the same way again.



    If you buy no other audio book, then I suggest this is the one for you.

    "Fry's Chocolate & Velvet"

    Few people have a vocabulary as rich and a voice as velvety as Stephen Fry's. I'd wanted to read this autobiography for a while, but instead chose to try it as my first "Audible". The combination of his witty prowse and the fact that it was actually being read by Stephen himself made this book all the more joyful. I'd highly recommend this autobiography and all the more so as an Audible book.

    "A brilliant listen!"

    This really is a must have book for any Fry fans. It's funny, well written, and just plain brilliant.



    I always listen to this if I am going on a long journey - it makes the time fly by in no time!



    Just brilliant.

    "Quite interesting."

    It's Stephen Fry. You know? He writes beautifully about his fascinating life, drops all manner of interesting views, opinions and ideas. And let's face it, no one knows better than he does how he intended his words to be intoned, emphasised or stressed. This is ideal for a comfortably lazy Sunday afternoon's pleasure.

    "A pleasure on a long trip."

    Steven's sharp mind and quick wit shine through in this book. I enjoyed every minute of it and it made a long, tedious journey simply fly by. This is a must for any fans of Fry.

    "A new friend"

    After reading this I got the feeling that I had been warmly welcomed into Stephen Fry’s life.



    The book is revealing, funny and honest, and despite his opening apology that the book is "very long" you soon find yourself at the final chapter, yearning for more.

    "Hooked from the start"

    A wonderful listen, not just Stephen's engaging reading style but also the content which was excellent, biographical facts, interspersed with wonderful insights and humour.

    "The Fry Chronicles"

    SF reads his autobiography really well. He is fantastic at other voices and accents. Made the listening very enjoyable. Superb with words. The books ends making you want more ... so I wait. Thank you Mr Fry.
