This review is from: The Stars' Tennis Balls (Paperback)
What a cracking book!
I have enjoyed all of Fry's novels, but found 'The Stars' Tennis Balls' particularly engrossing. Ned's absolute bewilderment and anger at his treatment at the hands of Delft, Barson-Garland and Cade is very compelling. The middle of the book, where Ned is take under Babe's wing, is very amusing.
It is certainly a most sinister story, with Maddstone's Bourne-esque capacity for vengeance much more clinical and brutal than that depicted in The Count of Monte Cristo.
