Audio Book Summary

For Ned, 1980 seems a blissful year. Handsome, charming, popular and talented, his life is progressing smoothly, effortlessly, happily. And when he meets the lovely Portia Fendeman his personal jigsaw appears complete. But timing is everything in life, and his life is about to change for ever. Things are going to get very bad indeed for innocent young Ned. A promise made to a dying teacher and a spiteful trick played by fellow pupils will rocket Ned from cricket captain to solitary confinement, from head boy to hell. When Ned emerges he is a man bent on just one thing - revenge; and revenge is a dish he plans to savour and serve to those who conspired against him. Part love story, part thriller, a gloriously rich mix that only Stephen Fry can dish up to us, The Stars' Tennis Balls will leave you happy and replete.

    The best part of this Monte Cristo adaptation is the part of Danglars in the beginning (Ashley Barson Garland) and the scenes in the hospital. I think it goes wrong on page one where you have 1 unlikeable character and 1 less than likeable character. Rooting for the villain is not a great start of your first chapter. I thought the second part of the story is rushed and the ending not very satisfying. The narrator is great, having the writer read the story can be a con, but for this one it really helped to flesh out the characters. Note: it is a very British book, with very British characters. Not being British probably caused me to miss details about characters and their backgrounds.
