I would recommend this audiobook to my friends because it is a kick in the pants!
I haven't read the print version but I absolutely loved hearing it in Tina Fey's own words. No one can talk about their own life story better than the person who lived it. She is hilarious!
It was all great!
Laughed a lot!
Fell out Laughing!
I really enjoyed hearing about Tina's life and her quirky way of explaining things. I loved hearing about the antics of 30 Rock and her time on SNL. Her angst about career and motherhood issues is so clearly similar to a lot of women. There will be a lot of women listening who will say - "someone gets me"!
When I read the physical book, I kept hearing her voice in my head while reading, but actually listening to her read the book to me was like sweet cream icing on a smooth carrot cake, served with vanilla ice cream. Just scrumptious!
Climbing up the mountain with the two boys, hoping to get lucky. I was listening with head phones and my husband had to tell me to be quiet because I was laughing so much!
The Secret of Success?
Thanks Tina for reading your book. It made the experience so enjoyable. I have loved your work and enjoyed hearing "the back story" from the original source!
I am a miracle worker. Doing what I can to choose love over fear.
A longer version so Tina did not have to sound like a non-stop talking doll. A loot of more laughs could be secured for all fans. This is not a memoir, but SNL on a sugar-rush.
Yes: On SNL or 30 rock
On audiobook? No.
Just "Tina, I love you, but I thought this was a memoir?"
If you are a die-hard fan and can never get enough by her book. If you like a book where you cannot get a break from Fey trying to be funny,
This was what I was expecting, enjoyable and light with a bunch of random stories. If you like 30 Rock and Tina Fey's style of humor its great and you wont regret it. I was surprised that the person she is in 30 Rock seems to be who she really is in real life.
I would recommend this book to a friend looking for a funny listen....although there is not much of a "story". The fact Tina Fey is the narrator makes the book.
I would recommend the book to most of my friends, however because there is some cussing that some might find offensive there are certain of my conservative friends who i would not recommend this book to.
Tina was just funny, it was great listening to her narrate her own story. My sister and I listened to this book while we drove to Montana. We laughed together, and both couldn't wait to continue the story when we'd make stops. Which is a big thing, my sister and I never agree on books or movies or even interesting topics to talk about. And, actually thinking about it, this was the first road trip we've taken together where we didn't argue or get in a fight. So what did I like best about Tina Fey's performance? I like that she entertained two people who were completely different.
This is a super funny book, made all the better by being narrated by Tina Fey herself. It's an audiobook you have to hear, as long as you don't have any little kids around who you don't want hearing some cuss words here and there.
Very funny, I like the way she thinks. Tina Fey is brilliant and very relatable. I'd recommend it to everyone except a few chapters about female issues which men don't understand and may find uncomfortable.
Very funny book by a very funny woman who has earned her success. Definitely worth the listen.
Tina responds to some of the hate mail she's received over the years.
She reads it as if it were a skit on her life, not just a book. She takes time to acknowledge the listener and it was refreshing.
Get ready to laugh out loud on the train, in your car, where ever you listen.
The comedic timing Fey usually conveys is starkly missing from a great deal of this audiobook. I wish she used a more conversational tone as though she were telling a story so it didn't sound like she was just reading a book to us, if that makes sense. It also wasn't as funny as I thought it would be, but I feel like that was largely due to the narration, which may have been better on paper but didn't translate for me.
The Twelve by Justin Cronin
I would ask her to use a more conversational, story-telling type of tone.
Maybe - it's hard to say because I didn't enjoy the audiobook. We only made it about 2/3 of the way through it. I might have enjoyed it more had I read the paper book.
