Difficult to put down.
am 9. Juli 1999
Self indulgent, often like a prolonged therapy session with an unbelievably spoiled ten year old and difficult to put down. After I read this autobiography I noticed with real surprise that I had also read Hippopotamus, The Liar and Making History, and had probably read each in one sitting. It was the same surprise I got when I realized one day I had read virtually every word by P.G. Woodhouse. Fry shares with him an easy style and the not insignificant ability to tell a story. The only comedic elements missing are bite and edge. Fry needs to eliminate the "mea culpas" and begin lashing out more. Apparently, his first forty years were all he could hope for and more. From a reader's selfish perspective, I can only hope his life turns bitter.
