1.0 out of 5 stars Self-indulgent rubbish, 26 July 2010
This review is from: Moab Is My Washpot (Paperback)
This is one of the most self-indulgent autobiographies I have ever read. It leaves a rather bad taste in the mouth once you realise that Fry has multiple hang-ups and, in fact, is a rather nasty person who does not deserve the public adulation which seems to follow him. Furthermore, how is it he was allowed to enter the USA to film a documentary when he has a criminal record? Must be a question of who you know.

I love Stephen Fry's work. I was on the fence about buying the autobiography, but your wonderful review decided me in favor of purchase. While I'm here, I may as well get more of his books. Thanks for the help, sweetie!

How does having hang ups and mental issues make you a nasty person? You clueless halfwit, I'm glad you didn't like it because I wouldn't want to count someone like you as a fellow fan.

It would appear that Mr Fry's fawning sycophants have been mobilised to defend his turgid book against anyone who dares to criticise it. How sad.
