Tina Fey is awesome. I want to be her friend. I want to have her follow me around and narrate my life. It was great listening to Tina narrate this story about her adolescence and other entertaining experiences before and after SNL and 30 Rock. I was surprised how honest she was about her personal life and people she's known. The second half of the book goes into a lot of detail about SNL and 30 Rock, so if you're not a fan of those shows, you might not enjoy this book as much as I did, but she's very funny, and a great writer.
Funniest Book EVER. I listened to it while driving at night and in the morning, kept me attentive and entertained the ENTIRE TIME! Perfect length, but I wanted more after it was over... :)
I had been anxious to read Tina Fey's book, but couldn't find the time. I downloaded it and listened to it while I ran. Let me say it is pretty tough to run while you are laughing so hard! I can't imagine experiencing this book in any other format. It was like having Tina Fey over for a visit. I felt like we were good friends sharing funny stories. She seemed to ad-lib a great deal and I loved that. You will not be disappointed with this book.
I'm not actually a big fan of 30 Rock, but Tina Fey's writing had me laughing all the way through. She drops in a few insightful observations about the entertainment business too. Well worth the listen.
I love Tina Fey....she has the best voice for an audio book. I know people on the commuter train give me funny looks when I laugh out loud listening to this but I can't help it. And I don't ever laugh out loud listnening to an audiobook...maybe a big smile but thats it. Tina has a very quick wit and it shines in the presentation of the story. I enjoyed listening to how 30 rock came to be and how aweful the pilot was. I was intrigued so I Netflixed the show and found it incredibly funny...but then again I'm not a writer so perhaps I just don't get the flaws. Politically I am more like her parents in the book (Republican) however her political views in no way distract from the entertaining value of the book. She plays a SNL skit in the book about Sarah Palin and it is hilarious! It's a great listen and you should get it immediately.
I bought this book as I was going to make a car trip of about 7 hours.
This book certainly kept me entertained. There are funny parts, some serious one, and also anecdotes from Tina Fey's SNL life.
Time flew by with it during the trip.
Tina Fey is hilarious! Her comedic delivery is perfect and the material is relate-able.
The only thing I cannot understand is, how can such a beautiful woman have so many insecurities? It was shocking to hear that from her....
If you like Tina Fey, this is a must! Very funny, entertaining, and fast paced story. I couldn't put it down. Tina Fey as herself makes the story even more likable.
