Yesterday I finished The Liar by Stephen Fry.

The Liar was Fry's first book, and he later went on to write books like Hippopotamus.

The Liar is about a British public school student who is unusually talented at, and dedicated to, fabricating stories, backgrounds, etc. The first two thirds of the book are set mainly at school, and give us a background. The last third has him getting involved in some international intrigue.

It is an OK book, but I enjoyed Hippopotamus more. In this book, Fry jumps around a lot from time to time and it is often hard to initially figure out when he is writing about at first.
