Without a doubt the best science fiction book I have ever read, and I have read a lot over the last 40 years. The plot is outstandingly brilliant and you are fully transported into the story line from page 1. The narration is so good it is beyond belief. This narrator is absolutely outstanding each character’s voice unique. I am in awe. I chose this book because of its high ratings. I now completely understand and concur with those ratings. I think I am going to have to listen to it again! And I am also going to look up every other book this narrator may have performed.

Where does The Fry Chronicles rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have absolutely loved listening to Stephen Fry narrating his own autobiography. I have been so touched by his honesty and humility and found the book inspiring and uplifting. I was very sad indeed when the book ended and am looking forward to the next instalment.

What did you like best about this story?

The fact that it was narrated by the author (the best narrator I have ever listened to) and that the book itself is so honest, interesting and insightful.

Have you listened to any of Stephen Fry’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes, all of the Harry Potter Audio books. Stephen Fry is simply outstanding in his performances. I can't imagine anyone better at narrating books.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There are many, many moving moments in the book which shone a light on some of my own experiences and which I found deeply touching.
