just passing thru
I listened to this on my work commute, and made me laugh so much that it it really brightened up my day. Tina Fey is a very smart, very funny lady. I'm now a big fan.
She is funny, self-deprecating, interesting and she tells a great story of what her life was like in middle American, and then later at SNL.
I love that it was narrated by Tina--it kept us sane on a long car ride and then again on a cross country airplane trip with no other entertainment options...we were smiling the whole way.
I loved Tina Fey from SNL but now I wish could go back in time and marry her! It covers lots of different areas of life and work, she had me laughing throughout!
An interesting read but not one I found my self wanting more of by the end nor could I imagine a re-listen but I don't regret listening at all. I think having it narrated by Tina Fey herself helped tremendously.
You know how some books or podcasts are dangerous to listen to in the car because they will make you laugh so hard you can't see the road from the tears streaming from your face? This is one of those books. I love Tina Fey and this book is a great example of why. She is incredible and strong and inspiring and funny and self-deprecating all at the same time.
I didn't realize she had written her memoirs so early. Her story can only be told by her, in her wonderful sarcastic voice. True embarrassing tales that most women try to forget. I found myself laughing out loud most of the book. A good portion is about Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. Now I did watch SNL and loved the background she gave, the advice she listened to and the reasons behind things. 30 Rock I watched for 15 min and turned the channel.... Very well written and performed. I hope she writes a fiction book next. I would read it. Kinda like Erma Bombeck only a lot funnier.
As someone who grew up in at the same time as Fey, I really enjoyed listening to this memoir. My husband liked it too, as we listened to portions of it during Hurricane Irene until the laptop battery died! It's hilarious. A must read.
Why mention the scar and an attack, but then not give any details--shall we just make up our own story? What's the secret? Seems she draws draw more to it by the secrecy. Loved the part about Tina's father--could so relate.
