Story teller extraordinary
Stephen Fry can do nothing wrong in my mind. This book is just another facet of his brilliance. A very clever, very sexy, very funny, totally compelling book. I will definitely listen to it again, probably more than once.
The unexpected twists. The characterisations.
Stephen Fry has the most incredible speaking voice and makes the characters live because he is also a brilliant actor.
Thoroughly enjoyable listen.
