Enjoyed this autobiography. It covers roughly the years from mid-to-late 1970s to the 1990s when Fry was at Cambridge University and after that as he started his career in theater and comedy. Lots of new vocabulary words to look up! ( )

A must read for any of Fry's fans ( )

Wonderful. I love Stephen Fry with every little piece of my intellectual-adoring heart. He ticks all the boxes for me: brilliant, handsome, has a deep and abiding love of language and a fabulous way with words, and utterly unattainable (for, well, reasons, of course). I'm grateful that he's willing to let us in on stories from his life, and his sometimes brutally honest manner of discussing that life makes me gleeful. ( )

The second book of Fry`s autobiography (not surprisingly) just as good and entertaining as the first one was. We can follow his life from the beginning of his university years to the beginning of being `famous`. Obviously it`s my fault not the author`s that I simply don`t know the British theater/movie world enough to know everyone mentioned and to understand every little references. ( )

I actually liked this volume a bit better than Moab. Sure there is quite a bit of tedious self abasement and apologies. But not as much as in the first - probably because he is writing about a thoroughly happy and successful part of his life. I also didn't mind his writing about his fellow comedians and the theater/TV world as it gives one insight into how these things actually work. Plus I love many of the shows discussed, particularly Blackadder.

Having said that, I sorely lament the abysmal lack of editing done on this book. It reads like it went from Fry's word processor straight to print. A good editor could have added at least one star.

Finally, I recommend the ebook version. The iBooks built in dictionary was a huge help! The most hilarious part is there were certain words even the dictionary couldn't define. You have to love that Fry's erudition! ( )

This is, above all else, a thoughtful book. And namedroppy too, and funny, and marbled with melancholy throughout. Its camaraderie of tone lets it wear its learning lightly yet leaves you with a hoaching number of new insights, new ways of looking at things, from snobbery to reality-TV contestants. The mask is now firmly on, and he grows into it each day, not least early last week in the Festival Hall, at his mammoth broadcast book launch, when he strode on stage as if lent – no, willingly given, for ever – the confidence of half of England, and was welcomed with the roars and love of the other half. Yet this book is a painfully honest attempt to tear the mask aside, for us. We are, if we are not damnably incurious, splendidly the better for it.

And, of course, no reason why anyone should care. Unless you are curious, in which case I love you, for curiosity about the world and all it's corners is a beautiful thing, even if those corners are as uncool as the cloisters of Oxbridge.
If you are hungry for food you are prepared to hunt high and low for it. If you are hungry for information it is the same. Information is all around us, now more than ever before in human history. You are barely able to stir or incommode yourself to find things out. The only reason people do not know much is because they do not care to know. They are incurious. Incuriosity is the oddest and most foolish failing there is.
I loathed committee meetings then and I loathe them now. My whole life has been a fight to avoid them as much as possible. A losing fight. I would so much rather do things than talk about doing them. Those who sit in committee rooms rule the world, of course, which is lovely if that is what you want to do, but those who rule the world get so little opportunity to run about and laugh and play in it.
The human cultural jungle should be as varied and plural as the Amazonian rainforest. We are all richer for biodiversity. We may decide that a puma is worth more to us than a caterpillar, but surely we can agree that the habitat is all the better for being able to sustain each. Monocultures are uninhabitably dull and end as deserts.
