As someone who enjoys Stephen Fry's Television and non-fiction writing I was excited to sample one of his fictional books. Unfortunately I feel he should stick to writing non-fiction. Making History has a somewhat interesting premise which rapidly degenerates into a rather pointless and at times incoherent story about love (as Fry views it). It feels like Fry got halfway through the book, decided something was missing and decided to throw a love story into the mix. Perhaps I am being too harsh or have missed the point, but to me the ending is not only predictable and rather cheesy, but also lacking in depth. Fry is a brilliant actor and an interesting author but this fictional novel is not one of his greatest works.
