I really enjoyed his first two memoirs. They showed Stephen Fry to be interesting and vulnerable, and were a joy to read. This, however, was a slap in the face. The first third of this book was telling the reader of the first two memoirs to stop reading the first third of this book and the non-reader of the first two memoirs not much else while he did that. The second third was the 'shock horror' revelation of his cocaine years and the last third a copy-paste of a slab of his 1993 diary to affirm the aforementioned, overplayed revelation (and little else).

Apart from the disappointment of lazy writing and the lack of thought or structure (or even point) to the book, it was the tediousness of the diary that really pissed me off. What a dull, laborious, day-by-day account of him and his 1993 luvvies, his influential friends and his cocaine buddies, with endless name-dropping and tales of excess, self-righteous indignation at his pet homosexual-related political grievances of the time and so on and so on.

"Got up with a hangover after a cocaine binge and struggled into work to do a voice-over for product x that make me x thousand for an hour's work that I spent on a dressing gown and then went and played cards at the Groucho Club and took cocaine with Keith Allen blah blah blah...

Why should we give a s***?

Pardon my French but this is just dull, dull, dull. The endless name dropping and self-absorbed obsession with his small world does not lead to empathy or even interest. It just makes you think that maybe Stephen Fry isn't the interesting person you thought he was, based on his first two memoirs.

This book really takes the Abbey Crunch and runs with it. One gets the distinct impression reading More Fool Me that, once again, the author ran out of time and just handed in his notes to his publisher, safe in the knowledge that his legions of fans will lap up any old pap that he squeezes out.

My god, the man needs a good editor. Is everyone at Penguin too in thrall to his legendary charm to tell him to put a bit of effort in and not treat the writing of a memoir as a homework assignment to be endured, not enjoyed? I suppose a decade and a half of drug abuse and luvvying is unlikely to make for edifying reading, but a tiresome rehash of his first two autobiographies (however charmingly he apologies for it), 200 pages of charmless coke-snorting anecdotage interlarded with a smattering of feeble apology, followed by a hastily copied-and-pasted chunk of diary that makes Pooter look interesting do not a decent memoir make.

This book covers the period when he was at the height of his abilities, when he appeared in and wrote some of the greatest comedic entertainment of its day. What insight do we get into all that? None. Where are the Blackadder reminiscences? Absent. Where are the A Bit of Fry and Laurie stories? Absent. Where are the discussions of Jeeves and Wooster? Absent.

What do we get instead? Page after page of Perudo-playing, Groucho-haunting, Voice-Overing dreariness. For someone apparently prone to introspection he's got an unfathomable lack of self-knowledge. Where's the emotion we saw in Moab? Where's the self-analysis, the insight? I don't want a list of buildings in which he snorted coke. I want to know what makes him tick. Does he simply not want to share what he thinks beyond acknowledging that he was bad?

Really sorry to say this was a big disappointment. Having read his previous 2 books I was excited when I saw he had a third instalment. I really like Stephen Fry and had bought his 2nd autobiography on audiobook as his voice adds something to 'the read'. I therefore got this 3rd volume on audiobook as well. Alas I think this book needed more than his voice to 'save it'. I get what I think he was trying to show in the section when he reads out his diary from1993, but it went on too long. I started to feel both bored and a little 'cheated'. I know it was still 'material' he had written, but somehow just re-printing his 20 year old diary, seemed lazy to me. I would have much preferred a lot fewer extracts and more of his reflections on his life then. The extracts should have been used as examples rather than being such a large proportion of the book. The irony is that much of them discuss his travails when writing a previous book. He often referred to struggling to knuckle down and write. You couldn't help but think he experienced the same trouble this time so 'cheated' a bit. I still think he is a national treasure I just will not be quite so quick to buy the next instalment, which given he stopped at 1993, he obviously intends to do.

Unlike the above 'review' I have read this book.

Having read, or more accurately listened to Stephen's other autobiographies, I was very much looking forward to the third installment. I so wanted to love this book, but alas, third time is most certainly not the charm.

Our hero once more recounts the events of the previous books (Moab is my washpot and the fry chronicles), this is of course a necessity for those who have not read them. Alas the 'synopsis' drags for too many pages and will bore even the most devouted of his fans.

The next 'part' of the book recounts many humourous, all be it cautionary stories revolving around his cocaine usage. This section of the book sees Stephen returning to fine form, and if the rest of the book was to continue along this path, then I would undoubtedly recommend it.

The third 'part' of the book inexplicably see's Stephen share extracts from his diary at the end of 1993, in a bizarre Adrian Mole-esque fashion. Whomever advised Stephen that this was a good format in which to conclude his book was sorely mistaken. The whole thing is disjointed and awkward. Annotated entries are made by the author to try and contextualise the entries, but this makes it even more cumbersome.

I am and will remain a huge fan of Mr Fry, he has a wit that would rival Wilde or Curran, but there are only brief flashes of that brilliance in this his third and most disappointing autobiography. The whole affair comes across as being rushed, poorly edited and dare I say, lazily written. I will still recommend it to fans of Mr Fry, but those of you who would like to read an interesting, witty and perhaps a touch whimsical autobiography, please read Moab and not this.
