This book is an masterpiece of literary genius. Listening to it makes you feel as if you were in a theatre, having a coffee with your friend, attending a lecture, tweeting, playing a game with words and being emotionally hyper yet feeling unhappy knowing the fact that not everyone in the world has access to this work of art.
Stephen fry's every possible emotion by connecting with the young petty thief, the greatest of scholars, the most adored television big whips and everyone in between.
He makes a salad of language, time, accents, sighs and whips you with the most beautiful feeling of act, scene and spot light business. He informs the listener about the ins and outs of OxBridge competition, snobbery and the in-between shenanigans... as well as provide details about various affairs of the theatrical world while insuring that people like me and you, with no reference to what he is talking about, end this book feeling I have been on the best course.
This is not an autobiography of Stephen Fry,but a biography of an era, and of a country's perception of the world in an epoch.
A must listen.
