    6. Not one word of the following is true Stephen Fry started out his book with this proclamation I ve always loved British Humor and quite frankly, I ve always liked Stephen Fry so I had great expectations for this book I wasn t disappointed In fact, I was rather quite surprised I didn t expect it to be this good Adrian Healey the protagonist, a modern Oscar Wilde type who is also a compulsive liar, hence the title is so witty, so charmingly smart well, most of the characters are indeed Not one wor [...]
