    "Well Fried, but underdone in places"

    Stephen Fry always has amusing anecdotes, and his hyperbole and exaggeration appeal. His early years Moab is my Washpot maintained momentum throughout both part 1 and 2, but the Chronicles part 2 midway seem to lose it a little with endless unexciting references to well-known and little known stars and celebs, mentioned just for the sake of mentioning and, I suppose, Fry's acknowledgment that they played a part, no matter how small, in his full life. If you can get through those parts, then it is a very good listen

    "Highly recommended..."

    A wonderful listen! Thoughtful, funny and honest. Haven't finished listening completely, but so far I am thoroughly enjoying every minute of it!

    "As good as it gets"

    The most engaging voice talent there is reasing his witty memoirs of events previously unknown to me in surroundings which everybody has heard of (English public schools and Cambridge) - as listening for pleasure goes, it doesn't get any better than this.

    "Great Book"

    Stephen's book was great, open and honest. An enjoyable book to listen too and I am sure if you actually have the book you will keep turning the page.

    "Excellent Fry"

    Great to hear it read from the horse's mouth, so to speak. Excellent Fry - never a dull moment. He is extraordinarily honest and self-deprecating. It means we can all identify with him at some level (though probably not his income, as he makes clear!).

    "Fry, Fry & Fry again!"

    A wonderful half-open window into a very complex and complicated man, whose vulnerability makes his prodigious talent even more amazing.

    "Mesmerising"

    Whilst the story of Stephen Fry's life is enjoyable, what makes this book so mesmerising is his total command of the English language. It is a joy to listen to. Stephen Fry is a true wordsmith who combines intelligent observational humour with a deep knowledge and broad understanding of the english language.

    "Rather good listen"

    Very much enjoyed listening to Stephen Fry talk about his life, even if he does say the odd naughty word every now and again.

    If have enjoyed reading/listening to Stephen Fry before then this will not disappoint. If you are new to Stephen Fry, then give him a go, I think you will be pleasantly surprised
