    "A really great story"

    This is an excellent story that I thoroughly enjoyed. It bounces around the timeline of his life in a few places, but that doesn't detract from the story, just hang in there and it all comes together in a funny and engaging audiobook. I thought I knew what he'd done in his career, but this really paints the picture of how he's made it to where he is today, and gives some insight into his contemporaries as well.

    "The Fry Chronicles: An Autobiography"

    I hardly dare write a review for a book written by the expert wordsmith himself, but Stephen Fry's command of language quite literally spoils my enjoyment of others. He always manages to capture exactly the right word or phrase and writes with such ease and eloquence. His anecdotes made me laugh out loud like a crazy woman in my car, forced me to examine my own motives and inadequacies and generally thrilled and exhausted me so much so that I had to turn the next audio book off . I want to KNOW Stephen Fry as a friend and this book got me a little closer without the need for stalking!

    "The Fry Chronicles"

    Ah, Stephen of the mellifluous voice and shocking, self-mocking candour that draws the reader further and further into his extraordinary world. I loved this book and read it twice, with huge enjoyment each time. It couldn't have been read by anyone else, perfect!

    "Hmmm"

    Is it me or does the more you listen to Mr Fry talk about himself the less interesting he becomes?

    "Good but slow and boring for the first 4 hours"

    Overall I enjoyed this book. The first 4 hours were rather dull and I really had to force myself to listen to it. However once we got into Fry's final year of uni and beyond it picked up and I enjoyed it.

    "Charming, funny and loveable."

    For someone who doubts his own talent so much, this book and its reading are a tour de force of talent and interest. If this book does not convince you that Stephen should be number 1 on your "people I would like to invite to a dinner party" list, nothing will.

    Whilst one only has to momentarily think about all the things Stephen has done to know that it would be jam-packed with memorable anecdotes, wit and pathos what comes as an added bonus is the immense skill with which it is read. Stephen is a fantastic mimic and brings to life so many characters perfectly. I cannot recommend this book enough and cannot wait for the next instalment.
