The only good thing about the book is that it was relatively short. I don't think I could stand another minute of it. I might of smiled once.
This is one of the most entertaining books I have listened to in a long time. I listened to it twice, back to back. I rarely re-read books, and never again so soon. It's creative, intelligent humor. It includes social commentary (e.g., about gender disparities in comedy), but without being preachy. Overall, loved it.
I am now a Tina Fey fan. I like her narration,
A chick book for sure, but I enjoyed as well.
I was looking forward to this book because I love 30 Rock but I was kind of disappointed by it overall. I thought Tina Fey did an all right job of relaying her story but I felt the book had too much of an agenda. I expected a funny account of her life and she did tell a few funny stories but the general tone of the book seemed on the negative side to me. If you are looking for a book about Tina Fey's life with a few funny stories incorporated then this book is just fine. If you are looking for a really funny book written by a very funny comedian then check out the Michael McIntyre book Life and Laughing. Even if you aren't familiar with him as a comedian the book is hilarious and he does a very good job narrating.
I listened to this book when traveling abroad. It was seriously hard not to laugh out loud when listening to this book in public on the train or in a plane. Ok, I don't think I was always successful but the Japanese are so polite. I especially loved the telling of her family "Celebrating the birth of Christ",... "traveling arduously back to the place of your birth to be counted." I make the same I-80 trek across PA but in reveres for the holidays. I replayed that bit several times!
Tina's timing and style has always made me laugh. This book was no different. I enjoyed hearing the back story to the Sarah Palin skits on SNL. I hope Tina keeps doing political humor because it's funny not because it makes a political point.
I gifted this book to a friend and with the holidays coming I plan to gift a few more. Does it come in a less quality paperback (or mp3) version for acquaintances? Just kidding, Tina deserves full price.
This book is the ideal Audiobook. Funny and engaging, Tiny Fey reads this book in her full comic persona. She adds to the already funny book by adding some additional commentary and PDFs that guide you through her life. Absolutely awesome!
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.
