Stephen Fry invites readers to take a glimpse at his life story in the unputdownable More Fool Me. 'Oh dear I am an arse. I expect there'll be what I believe is called an "intervention" soon. I keep picturing it. All my friends bearing down on me and me denying everything until my pockets are emptied. Oh the shame.' In his early thirties, Stephen Fry - writer, comedian, star of stage and screen - had, as they say, 'made it'. Much loved in A Bit of Fry and Laurie, Blackadder and Jeeves and Wooster, author of a critically acclaimed and bestselling first novel, The Liar, with a glamorous and glittering cast of friends, he had more work than was perhaps good for him. What could possibly go wrong? Then, as the 80s drew to a close, he discovered a most enjoyable way to burn the candle at both ends, and took to excess like a duck to breadcrumbs. Writing and recording by day, and haunting a never ending series of celebrity parties, drinking dens, and poker games by night, in a ludicrous and impressive act of bravado, he fooled all those except the very closest to him, some of whom were most enjoyably engaged in the same dance. He was - to all intents and purposes - a high functioning addict. Blazing brightly and partying wildly as the 80s turned to the 90s, AIDS became an epidemic and politics turned really nasty, he was so busy, so distracted by the high life, that he could hardly see the inevitable, headlong tumble that must surely follow...Containing raw, electric extracts from his diaries of the time, More Fool Me is a brilliant, eloquent account by a man driven to create and to entertain - revealing a side to him he has long kept hidden. Stephen Fry is an award-winning comedian, actor, presenter and director. He rose to fame alongside Hugh Laurie in A Bit of Fry and Laurie (which he co-wrote with Laurie) and Jeeves and Wooster, and was unforgettable as Captain Melchett in Blackadder. He also presented Stephen Fry: The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive, his groundbreaking documentary on bipolar disorder, to huge critical acclaim. His legions of fans tune in to watch him host the popular quiz show QI each week.… (lisätietoja)

Brilliant, belly achingly funny and, at times, hearbreaking insight into this famous actor's/writer's/comedian's/activist's days of addiction. Brutally honest portrait of his fears, insecurities, friendships and much, much more. Anecdotes that will make you laugh, cringe, worry and, mildly put, go through a full spectrum of emotions. Stunning dissection of a genius mind. ( )
  SONYAns | Jun 9, 2021 |
National treasure Stephen Fry is a witty and engaging, industrious and well-rounded character. Such that even his offcuts, his casual asides and banter, must have plenty of interest and charm. Which is more or less what we have here in this unconvincingly assembled jumble of reminiscence and confession. Or, as it may also be, a cocaine-fuelled outpouring of energy and humour and invective. But it’s all still eminently readable, and who cares precisely which bits are invented or embellished in say, the account of Damien Hirst blowing his Turner Prize cheque at the Groucho club in one go? Fry’s showiness, keen to please and to be noted, is balanced somewhat by his candour, always willing to own up to his own flaws and limitations, the book’s title being an obvious example. ( )
  eglinton | Mar 12, 2019 |
The third volume of Stephen Fry’s autobiography is as entertaining read as the previous two. My only issue with it, and it’s a quite annoying one to tell the truth, when in the last quarter of the book he’s lengthy copypasting his diary without any editing. That’s the worst part of the book, the long, repetitive descriptions of days after days are quite often very boring. ( )
  TheCrow2 | Feb 21, 2019 |
I know one star is very harsh, and I rarely give a book that kind of rating. But precisely because Fry is so brilliant with such a strong voice, this book is a total POS. I didn’t mind the rehash. The cocaine chapter was annoying only because he promised to explain why it was such an awful mistake, but he never did. The diary section is unconscionable. All would be forgiven, however, if he h1d written about what this book is obviously leading up to, his first major breakdown. Maybe it's still too difficult a topic to touch. But this whole book is utter garbage & absolutely pointless celebrity drivel & gossip, without the why & wherefore of that event. Fry claims he believes in absolute honesty, but this book is a lie. Don't bother reading it. ( )

As much as I love Stephen Fry, I wasn't impressed with this volume of his autobiography. Too much focus on his addiction to cocaine and he ends the book just before his rock bottom (I assume). ( )
