4.0 out of 5 stars Excelent read, Fry a master of the written word., 11 Oct. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Stars' Tennis Balls (Hardcover)
This book, as all the other books by Stephen Fry, will not fail to satisfy even the most demanding reader. To begin with, irrespective of the plot, Fry's use (and love) of the English language, together with his unique sense of humour, makes the reading of the book a pleasure in its own right. The plot evolves masterfuly and Fry, while not overdoing it, fills his story with details that ensure that, even at its most surreal, it (the story)remains believable and real. I would not mind, however, and this is an expression of my personal preferences and not in any way a criticism of the book, if the final "catharsis" of Ned Maddstone, the hero of the story, was less dark and sinister, and rather more in agreement with the humorous, albeit dark, character of the story up to the point where the retribution begins.
