I enjoyed learning about Tina's life and I could relate to her in a lot of ways, especially the career vs. family dilemma that many American women are faced with these days. She puts a light and hilarious spin on these everyday problems.
She made me feel like I was chatting with a gal pal.
This was a fun departure from my usual self-help/metaphysical genre, and I appreciated the laughs. Thanks, Tina!
It was a great book made me laugh out loud.
I love the part where she talks about getting older.
It made me laugh.
I really enjoyed this. Ms. Fey is as funny here as she was on SNL or 30 Rock. Great stories that I would listen to again.
It was nice to hear some of the back story to Tina's life. I stopped watcing 30 Rock because it was getting too weird and now I understand why.
The opening hour alone is worth the price of admission. My fiance and I were crying we were laughing so hard. Once you get into her improv and SNL days, it's a little more hit and miss. It feels very personal and written for her friends more than for a general audience. By the time you get to the very end (parenting, motherhood) it feels very rushed. More snark than substance.
Where it's good though, it's really good.
Yes yes yes yes yes and yes. This book has sold me on the idea of Audiobooks as a whole. There's so much you wouldn't get out of this without having Tina right there telling her story to you. So many of the nuances that make her funny as a comedian and an actor are present in this performance and it's incredible. At several times I thought
Everything. See above
This is a charming look at Tina's life. She keeps it both real and entertaining the whole way though, and overall it was just a great experience.
I loved listening to Tina Fey. I found myself laughing out loud a few times, but also just interested in her story - and I really didn't know that much about her before. I listened this while I cut out material for a quilt. Perfect entertainment. I highly recommend this book.
Knowing it was being read with the emphasis and inflections where Tina Fey actually wanted them - better than reading it myself.
In the printed addition, there are many italicized asides from Tina. These asides feel even more personal as she reads them to you in her
All of her style of humor translates very well to her insights into her life and rise to comedy.
The only downside is that the hilarious pictures with which she peppers the book are in an attached PDF. This is slightly inconvenient for those who enjoy listening to the audiobook in a car, or while doing other tasks.
I would recommend this to anyone that wants a nice light fun experience. Tina Fey is a great humorist and I love her work in general. I drive several 2-3 hour trips per week and listen to lots of news and rather serious books usually. This one is a really nice break.
Probably the roller skating in the house bathroom incident.
I would try anything else by her.
This book was so funny. I listen on my iphone while walking to the ferry in downtown Seattle. I can't tell you how many funny looks I have received because I am laughing so hard and no one knows what I am laughing about.
