Kildonan by the sea
A very entertaining book, with some real insights into british society or educational privilege and the consequences on individuals, in this case mostly positive. Also a lesson why those early networks will help the talented excel in their chosen professions.
This is monolog disguised as conversation intending to be an autobiography ; do not expect chronology, it works most of the time because Stephen Fry is a very charming man that can also write well and intelligently, with ease and and a genuine feeling of sincerity.
Stephen Fry is the best reader by far, his voice covers all the ranges and expresses feelings while communicating eloquently and expertly.
I love Stephen Fry and found his autobiography fascinating and funny and such a bonus that it is narrated by him. Being Dyslexic reading can be a struggle so being able to listen to books that I would have otherwise struggled to read has really open up my world.
I am in love with Stephen Fry even more after to listening to this book. I did try to read Moab a few years ago and just could'nt get it, he went on about grammer and other rubbish that did'nt make sense, whereas this book is brilliant and he just talks about his life and friends. Really great listen.
I can easily listen to this again and again and... again.Absolutely great listening especially during a long run...or a long drive.
I love Stephen Fry. He's honesty about his addictive personality is very refreshing. I could listen to him all day. He's a very talented man who lived through an interesting time and has fought some of his demons, his worse one is still to come and I shall buy that book too.
Couldn't stop listening to this book. Not gonna lie I don't think I could have physically read it , there are some very big words in there lol. But definitely well worth a listen.
I love Stephen Fry's honestly in this book, his way to 'tell it as it is' was done in such a lovely way. I also loved that Stephen is narrating the book himself. Absolutely love his voice.
