Editorial 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)

Publisher's Summary

Following on from his hugely successful books, Moab Is My Washpot and The Fry Chronicles, comes the third chapter in Stephen Fry's life. This unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of More Fool Me is performed by Stephen Fry himself.

Flat out disappointing

This was such a lazy effort. Having previously enjoyed Fry's earlier autobiographies, this book was a fragmented rehash of old diary scribblings, full of pretentious name dropping and tedious luvvy chat.

Lazy to the point of insult

Hour after hour of diary excerpts is not an autobiography. I listened to about 2 hours of it, before skipping through the rest of the chapters, thinking that, surely, the whole recording can't consist of just his diary.
Unfortunately, I was wrong.

Not as satisfyingly funny as other Fry tales.

Not as satisfyingly funny as other Fry tales. The previous books were enough. Not worth downloading.

Overindulgent and disappointing!

I am a great fan of Stephen Fry, and enjoy his performances immensely. Another stage in his personal reminiscences, and nicely read, the content here is a great disappointment. After a beginning that holds some entertaining (if explicit) promise, it mainly consists of presenting successive entries (perhaps expanded) from his personal diary. These become essentially repetitious and so, consequently, boring. Stephen you can do much better!

Bit of a fizzer

Some excellent anecdotes throughout. Great first half but the diary entries in the latter half became tiresome. Spent most of the time wondering when they'd end and he'd return to the original format.

Ok

Loved Moab and the Fry Chronicles. This one not so much. He reads diary entries for the last half and it's just a bit boring. Still love the Fry.

Good read as expected of Mr Fry

a good read of recent history, but sadly unlike Mr Fry's documentary on mental health, which is truly outstanding, this seemed to lack a little in depth. Honest, certainly but a little light on as to how his addiction affected him. But an enjoyable read none the less, of course with Mr Fry how could it not be enjoyable.

funny, dark, fantastic

I have enjoyed this book enough to have read through twice now. Fry makes you laugh, brings you to years but I found myself completely captured with this book. I enjoyed hearing his stories and watching a part of his life unfold. I do feel it ended a little early and expect we shall see a further volume in time

Long list of diary entries and not much else

Love Steven Fry reading anything but the context of this did not do it for me. Worked well as a sleep story tho!
