This book is actually better as an audiobook. Tina Fey reading her own jokes make it so much better. Obviously her humor comes across stronger with the timing she intended for it.
I listened to the book because of the high praise in its reviews. I found the book very focused to an American Public and not very funny, I guess that the problem is that for non-americans there is no context for understanding the jokes or stories told.
I would definitely NOT recommend the book if you do not live in the United States.
I would try another book from Tina Fey, but I feel as though she has stretched herself too thin on this one.
I'm sure she has many funny stories to tell, but these aren't them. The book is more like stream of consciousness observations, not that well thought out or refined.
I am a huge fan of David Sedaris.
Tina. Her writing skills and the way she tells stories are out of this world.
Tina, because she was nothing like me growing up. But somewhere along the way...I turned into her.
The way Tina described her dad reminded me so much of my dad. He seems like such an amazing man and father.
Oh I went through all the emotions...
Tina Fey has inspired me more than anyone ever has
This book had me laughing so hard! Tina Fey is so smart and certainly not lacking in humility
I would recommend it to someone else, but I wouldn't listen to it twice.
I liked all her stories about rising up through the ranks of comedy as a woman.
I've only seen her on SNL and in a couple of movies. This just gave a better overall idea of what she is like in real life.
Tina Faye, as real as it gets.
This is a very funny autobiography of her life.
Especially great for people who like celeb biographies.
Loved it. If the tv/comedy thing doesn't work out, she'll have a steady career in audio book reading.
I would have liked this much better if so much of it hadn't been excepted elsewhere.
I have listened to parts of it numerous times. I really like Tina Fey. I was interested to learn about how she got started in show business, her life at SNL and how 30 Rock came about.
She used more profanity that I would have expected. Because of the profanity, I was unable to listen to it while my young children were in the car. I think they would have enjoyed parts of it.
Refreshing, hilarious and touching.
Tina Fey of course, she's really a great storyteller, reader and all-round interesting talent
The spontaneity with which she read the story - didn't sound boring or rehearsed at all.
Laughed a lot - it turned me into a 30-Rock addict, tho I'd never seen the show...now I've got all the DVD's.
I was something like 200 on the waiting list for this title at the library and it was selling for a lot on e-bay - it made more sense to join Audible, get it for free, and now get all sorts of similar, wonderful, author-read life stories and adventures. A great investment!
Tina Fey's delivery and timing is great. I love that she is reading her own words.
