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.
Ok, so the book was hilarious. The narration was good. Whoever decided that fading between excerpts was a good idea needs a new career. It was pretty distracting and often words would be cut off at the end of a section due to fading.
Five stars for the comedy and narration.
I love this book. Also loved that Tina was the narrator. My best friend and I laughed hysterically when we took a road trip the other day. I am now Tina Fey's biggest fan.
Too short! I wanted more! I love this audiobook. And I actually did buy it for my sister-in-law, who had already read the book but who I insisted should HEAR the book, and she loved it too. Even if you've read the book, there's nothing like hearing it the way Tina says it, buy it again.
I LOVE Tina Fey on 30 Rock and consider her acting to be first class. This book leaves me irritated and bored frankly: her childhood tales just aren't that interesting, and her performance is grating. I switched from listening to this to David Sedaris and felt immediate relief... made me realize that her humor is far more appropriate in a theatrical/TV ensemble setting.
A funny and surprisingly human account of life as Tina Fey sees it, narrated by, who else but Tina Fey herself. Wonderfully enjoyable five and half hours.
