Stephen Fry's breathtakingly outrageous debut novel, by turns eccentric, shocking, brilliantly comic and achingly romantic. Adrian Healey is magnificently unprepared for the long littleness of life; unprepared too for the afternoon in Salzburg when he will witness the savage murder of a Hungarian violinist; unprepared to learn about the Mendax device; unprepared for more murders and wholly unprepared for the truth.

Funny, witty and very well acted
Funny, Witty, interesting
I've honestly got nothing to compare this to. It is very stange with a winding plot that still remains interesting. The individulal scenes are excellantly written and acted. Especially near the end.
He is the greatest voice actor in the world. I think that is understood. The book wouldn't be half as good without him and he's the reason i bought the book.
If you like Stephen Fry in both his writing and voice acting then buy this book. If you don't like him then you won't like this. It is Stephen to the core.
