For Ned, 1980 seems a blissful year. Handsome, charming, popular and talented, his life is progressing smoothly, effortlessly, happily. And when he meets the lovely Portia Fendeman his personal jigsaw appears complete. But timing is everything in life, and his life is about to change for ever.
Things are going to get very bad indeed for innocent young Ned. A promise made to a dying teacher and a spiteful trick played by fellow pupils will rocket Ned from cricket captain to solitary confinement, from head boy to hell. When Ned emerges he is a man bent on just one thing - revenge; and revenge is a dish he plans to savour and serve to those who conspired against him.
Part love story, part thriller, a gloriously rich mix that only Stephen Fry can dish up to us, The Stars' Tennis Balls will leave you happy and replete.

Delightful and horrifying
Stay with it...its going to get interesting!
Yes. The first time I listened, I was pulled in and swept along by the plot. The second time I was delighted by the plot even though I knew what was coming. The third time I began to wonder about the peripheral characters in the story.....Lovely, yummy layers.
I like the terrifying way in which a childish prank spirals out into so many lives, and the very real and sinister impact this has on so many people.
He never fails, they are all fabulous daahlink!
When the main character "behaves well" and does what he thinks will make his captor happy with him. Rather like a child desperately seeking the approval of disinterested parent. It is a very sad moment.
Loved this book, twistier than a twisty turney thing.
