Audible Editor Reviews

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.

I'm a fan of Stephen Fry and really enjoyed the first two volumes of his autobiography but this was a huge disappointment. He phoned it in. The majority of the book is spent bringing us up to date - OK, I understand the need to go over old ground - and reading from the diary he kept as he rushed madly around London snorting coke and hanging out with nearly every name he could possibly drop (not those he was sharing his coke with of course, that would be beyond the pale). This book doesn't advance us very far through his life and although he obviously had a serious drug habit we don't get the sense of how this was affecting his everyday life. The diary entries don't cut it. Pardon the pun.

Probably not worth it if you've read the others

What did you like best about More Fool Me? What did you like least?

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.


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

More anecdotes and original writing. Less goign over old stuff and just reading from old diaries.


What about Stephen Fry’s performance did you like?

Excellent, as always.


Do you think More Fool Me needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes, but not yet, and in a format more similar to the first two books.
