Lots of twist in the plot. Never know quite what's true until the very end. A page turning read. The chores will pile up while you read as once you've started this book, you can't put it down!

Fry's awesome goofiness from his "Bit of Fry and Laurie" days is very evident in the prose, though the plot is a bit haphazard at times.

Very funny, which isn't surprising given the author's previous works, but also very well-constructed, original, and thoughtful.

A novel by British film and TV star Stephen Fry (comedy partner of Hugh Laurie of "House"). VERY, VERY funny!

Wacky, salty book. Fry is the guy who played Jeeves in the Bertie and Jeeves television shows (or were they movies?) He also has done a comedy show with Hugh Laurie (Bertie and now of House fame). This is very Britt comedy, amusing.

Interesting but fun read. The italicized subplot was difficult to follow but all came together in the end. Great critique of higher education!
