    Sadly, it was not what I expected GUNS AND HIPPOS DON T MIX WELL Since I enjoyed so much reading The Gun Seller by Hugh Laurie, and due Stephen Fry is a very good friend of Laurie, and it seemed that Fry s style in novels can be quite similar to Laurie s, I thought that it could be a good idea to try some book by Stephen Fry.I think that The Hippopotamus wasn t the best first choice And while I didn t enjoy it so much, I still want to read some other book by Fry in the future Maybe [...]

    A thought experiment to characterize the narrator of this book What if somehow Oscar Wilde and Howard Stern had a son together Other reviews led me to believe that the plot would be very loose and mucky Going into it with low expectations, I was pleasantly surprised when there was a pretty interesting plot and it was tied up rather neatly at the end If you are a fan of a good mystery, this is not for you It is really only a mystery in the broadest sense Mostly it s a comedy of manners I l A thou [...]

  5. Punksays:

    This had a sort of P.G Wodehouse feel to it, but raunchier Then I got to page 18, where the narrator Ted thinks Sometimes, in my dreams, I imagine a world in which women enjoy sex a world of heterosexual cruising areas in parks and promenades, heterosexual bars, heterosexual back rooms, heterosexual cinemas, heterosexual quarters of the town where women roam, searching for chance erotic encounters with men Such an image is only conceivable in one s fantasising bedroom, jerked into life by a This [...]

  6. Earlsays:

    Unlike the usual crap balyhooed by the New York literati, this book is genuinely funny.

  7. Cori Reedsays:

    1.5 stars I m justwhat Why WHY I m going to try to forget this ever happened and maintain my love for Stephen Fry.
