    "Fantastic"

    I love Stephen Fry so this is a bit bias but not only is he a fantastic British icon, he also has lead a fascinating life. Definitely worth a listen for anyone, not just Stephen Fry fans.

    "Fry tastic "

    Okay, I am a fan of Stephen Fry so I may be biased but I found the steps that lead to him being loved by the British really enjoyable. While it can be self indulgent at time, it shows how raw his mental state is at times.

    Wonderful read, and I look forward to the next chapter in his life

    "A trip inside the mind of Mr. Fry"

    Having been a long time fan of Stephen Fry it was a pleasure to listen through this book narrated by himself. You get to see a side of him that shows his good and dark side.



    This complicated man is truly inspiring and reminds us all that no matter how self destructive we might be then there is light at the end of the tunnel.

    "Interesting"

    This is an interesting book, however it kept losing me. I felt it was read in a monotonous way, so I had to listen to it in short sections. However the content of the book was quite good. It had comedy, wit and a lot of honesty about his life. Good book.

    "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.
