Format: Hardcover
As someone who has recently become a fan of Stephen Fry, I very much enjoyed reading this second volume of autobiography. Having little knowledge of English universities, I especially appreciated the discussion of Cambridge and what the university is like (just as I learned about British public schools when I read _Moab is My Washpot_). I got a bit lost in the discussion of tv and theatre people and interactions with them (and found some of the detailed discussions a bit tedious). The many colour photos were appreciated, along with heartwarming stories of Fry's enduring friendship with Hugh Laurie. Overall, the tale is definitely a good one and a must-read for any fan of Stephen Fry or English television comedy. Left me desperately wanting to read the rest of the story--I hope volume 3 comes soon!

For any Stephen Fry fan, this book is a must! It's a humorous, clever and altogether great book. It really sounds like Fry is speaking when you read it and it gives a great insight into this great man's life. Don't forget to read his other works too!

Brilliant man, brilliant writing, utterly fascinating, delightful and charming. For Stephen Fry, language is a source of sheer pleasure, and he uses it so beautifully. He is a treasure.
