Following on from his hugely successful books, Moab is My WashpotandThe Fry Chronicles, comes the third chapter in Stephen Fry's life. This unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of More Fool Me is performed by Stephen Fry himself.
Praise for The Fry Chronicles:
"Heartbreaking, a delight, a lovely, comfy book". (The Times)
"Perfect prose and excruciating honesty. A grand reminiscence of college and theatre and comedyland in the 1980s, with tone-perfect anecdotes and genuine readerly excitement. What Fry does, essentially, is tell us who he really is. Above all else, a thoughtful book. And namedroppy too, and funny, and marbled with melancholy." (Observer)

And more fool me for buying it.
Probably not worth it if you've read the others
Stephen Fry's performance is good, but the book seems slightly rushed and contains lots of 'filler'.
The book is almost split in to varying thirds:
- First third: Going over details and stories from the previous 2 books.
- Second third: Some new info and anecdotes (although a lot of them I'd already heard on various tv shows and during promotional stuff for the book).
- Final third: Just reading from his diary. No newly written content. While some of the stories were interesting, I'm not too bothered about what SF had for breakfast/lunch/dinner/drinks and when he went to bed on any given day.
More anecdotes and original writing. Less goign over old stuff and just reading from old diaries.
Excellent, as always.
Yes, but not yet, and in a format more similar to the first two books.
