In the last 4 weeks I've read Moab Is My Washpot, The Liar, The Hippopotamus, Making History and The Stars Tennis Balls. I've devour this books. They are written fantastically. If I had to discribe this books with my own words I would say "expect the unexpected". Thanks for these books and days of pleasure.

I know what you mean, Antje. Stephen Fry's books are truly addictive and can be enjoyed again and again. My personal favourites are Moab, Hippo and Balls. Like my abbreviations?

IMHO - Moab & Liar are superb Hippo & Muse are good Balls & Hist are bad (sorry)

This is your home now, Joe.

I think especially The Stars Tennisballs is a gorgeous book. The whole story is very strange and surreal. At the beginning with reading I thought "Oh no, what the hell is this. Such a mazy stuff." But when I had read some pages I was avid. I could not put away this book, I devored it.
For me Making History is very interesting. It takes a look at the idea "What if ..."
