      Can you have a mid life crisis at twenty four Or is it just the usual crisis of adulthood, something I was going to have to get used to until I doddered into oblivion For the past year, I realised, I had been suffering from this pain, this leaking of hot lead in my stomach Every morning when I awoke and stared at the ceiling and listened to Jane s gentle snoring it flooded my gut, a dark swell of recognition that here was another pissing day to be got through as me How can you tell if that s [...]

      My favourite Fry book His jumps between narratives and playful use of various lit devices is only possible for Stephen Fry As usual, you instantly adore the protagonist and watch his every fumbling step with the same paternal yet slightly benevolently lecherous gaze as Fry The action in this is perfectly paced, the history glitters with colour, the humanity is raw, the politics aren t preachy or overdone, the love is true, and the voices are clear and exact Above all of course, is the humour My [...]

      This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here So you invent a time machine, and what s the first thing you do You go back in time and kill Hitler, of course Except you can t TVTropes , because either it doesn t work or it screws up the timeline even Thus resolving one of the burning questions surrounding time travel if it s possible, why do we still have Hitler Stephen Fry tackles this in a best of all possible worlds way in Making History, where his protagonist [...]

      The book started well enough, young chap at Cambridge Fry s alma mater immersed in the history of Hitler, working towards spending his life at Cambridge in a paid capacity, is having a tough time with his hard nosed scientist girlfriend who finally leaves him I found her interesting than our hero, stronger, and capable of carrying a story, and was sorry to see her go Young man makes a hash of his thesis, dissertation, whatever, by being way too inventive for historical research, b The book start [...]

      Probably my favorite fiction book by the wonderful Stephen Fry when you have read his autobiography, my suggestion is to go for this one The story, obviously, is about the changing of history and the consequences thereof Wonderful, live and likeable characters and some not likeable at all, of course and has all the trademark Fry English humor, wit, and beautiful language At no point in this book this feels overdone, but I felt that he hit just the tone and pace here The outcome of the m Probably [...]

      This was clearly not a success for me Especially the literary level was very low weakly portraited, one dimensional characters, an occasional exciting moment but a lot of very boring moments, especially in the passages that have been written as a film script, and a really really dull final The only interesting approach is that Fry tries to imagine what the consequences would be of attempts to change history, but even that is poorly executed As a novel this does not exceed the level of cheap This [...]

      You can read this review and on my blogIn a nutshell Making History is an equally fun and thought provoking read about an alternative history where Hitler was never born.This was not only my first Stephen Fry novel but my first read for 2015 It was a wonderful beginning on both accounts I ve wanted to read something by Fry for a while now and Making History was a perfect book for me to start with I m a history student like the protagonist and I m fascinated by alternative history, e You can read [...]
