Stephen Fry warns you that everything in the book is a lie. But you get carried away as he reads the book with voices that make you believe you are hearing the characters. Fun book and leaves you pondering issues as well. Thoroughly enjoyed. ( )

Brilliant, wordy, sometimes disgusting, a very good read. ( )

I got halfway through and just lost interest. I couldn't quite find the plot. There were clever parts, and quotes I enjoyed, and I can see its merit, but it didn't do it for me. It's sad, because I really like Stephen Fry. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 156947012X, Paperback)

An irresistible novel by multi-talented Stephen Fry, author, film and television star, playwright and newspaper columnist.

"The spirits of Oscar Wilde and Evelyn Waugh glower benignly over this very funny first novel . . . An ingenious plot filled with surprises and glittering with hilarious, often indecent inventions."—The New York Times Book Review

"Transforms the sophomoric into the sophisticated."—Los Angeles Times

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:17:31 -0400)

Adrian Healy loves to lie, and already in his public school career, marked by privilege and pederasty, he had lost the ability to differentiate between simple truth and his elaborate fictions.
