Interesting. I enjoyed it. Not sure I buy into the "just out of the asylum and turns himself into computer genius" bit, but it was interesting
I read The Stars' Tennis Balls by Fry several months ago, and I'm certain this is the same book. Not sure why the title was changed. Anyway, I quite enjoyed the nod to Dumas' The Count of Monte Cristo. Fry has such a wonderful relationship with language and makes me want to read absolutely everything he writes.
Turns out that Stephen Fry isn't just a great comic actor, but knows how to write a good novel as well. This is a thriller with some rather gruesome violence towards the end, as the once likable protagonist turns into...well, you'll have to read it to find out.
An interesting book, unlike most of Fry''s earlier novels. It still has some comic moments but this one is quite dark. The plot depends on a few extraordinary coincidences, but if that does not bother you the book is worth the read.
