Read in November, 2010 — I own a copy

In this book Stephen Fry is at his absolute best. Witty, insightful, incredibly intelligent, personable, and, as other reviewers have mentioned, disarmingly honest. The book meanders, yes, but this never detracts from the quality of the book- rather, serves to provide incredible insight into so many important issues. Fry has an amazing sense of self-understanding and while, at some stages of the book I found his actions shocking, and quite disconcerting, I found that I could relate exactly to many of his thoughts and experiences. This book revealed the depth and complex character of a man who remains surprisingly humble and highly rational despite all his achievements. This book is like one of the those wonderful and rare conversations which are extremely thought-provoking, and valuable. Conversations where people either manage to express exactly what you were thinking, or cause you to challenge your preconceptions- Fry does both.
