The Stars’ Tennis Balls

by Cellobella on Tuesday, October 9, 2007

Stephen Fry’s novel of revenge started off in an easy manner introducing his characters well and sucking me into his world of upper-class toffs and jealous wannabes. Then it takes a rather bizarre turn when one of the protagonists is kidnapped.

I was totally hooked into what happens to them and how they escape.

Then he turns Jeffrey Archer like and crafts an elegant revenge story but in the end I wasn’t left satisfied. It was all a bit nasty and petty and I wanted my hero to “be a bit above all of that”. It was all a bit sad.
