Very edited, safe book. Boring. Didn’t finish it. Repetitive, yes she had a tough life and worked hard to achieve great success but how many times does she have to repeat that?

What a lucky generation we are to have Stephen Fry! I read this book and loved it then listened to the audio sample and loved Stephen’s readings. His voice impersonations are awesome, if you listen carefully you’ll recognise Billy Connelly, John Cleese, Kenneth Branagh, Michael Palin, Miriam Margoyles and many more. I listen to this over and over
