Entertaining stories that were easy to get involved in and enjoy.
I'm not sure I would call it a real comparison, but it makes me think of "Born Standing Up". I wouldn't consider Tina Fey a comic, but both are interesting looks at comedy.
I haven't listened to any other audio books narrated by her.
I don't know that I was moved, other than to laughter - and that comes throughout the entire book!
It's a wonderfully entertaining book. We listened to it on weekend trip, and it was perfect to listen to short pieces, and not feel like you were disconnected with the book. I will probably listen to it again!
Listening to Tina Fey narrate her own stories was the most enjoyable experience. You could hear her accentuate each moment/ funny story and go back those places in her memory while adding a funny twist.
I would have liked her to spend a little bit more time on the relationship between her and her husband....but I could also understand why she chose to keep it private....maybe a fictionalized version of it would have been funny.
I would say the description of her father because I could literally imagine how he was such a strict man. I also enjoyed her description of her college personality as she was discovering her talents and herself.
No extreme reaction. I did enjoy her debunking of her photoshoot experience. I always thought getting photographed for a magazine was luxurious, but I enjoyed her reality check about how vain it really is.......and how it is all and illusion. Now every time I watch her Garnier commercial I will know that it probably was not an enjoyable experience for her.
If you love Tina Fey and her comedy this is the book for you.
Tina Fey's light, self-deprecating humor was a delight to listen to. I actually think that people who read the book missed out. You must listen to Tina Fey read her story.
So many snippets of fun from her hair to her clothing style--all of it very relatable.
If you are looking for some fun mind (ear?) candy, get this. I want to listen to it again.
Humorous, Relatable, and Inspiring
This audiobook was very entertaining. I felt like I have gotten to really know what Tina Fay is all about. It was a treat to hear her narrate her own book.
A life story I did not expect! The characters will stay with me for a life time.
This is the first.
made me laugh
I am glad I choice this book
It's a great read of a strong, inspirational woman who tells it like it is. Fey shares bits of her life that are are easy to relate to. Fey talks about work, life, family, breaking barriers, and dealing with those that do not believe women are as capable as men. I'd give it a 4.5 if I could, only because a 5 is a book you can't get out of your mind, and this one while great fun is not one that changed my life.
Road trip perfection.
The big day of filming with Oprah for 30 Rockand playing Sarah Palin on SNL.
This book would have been funny enough with some generic reader, but Tina Fey reading the book put it over the top! It's like 5+ hours of 30 Rock & Weekend update. Enjoyed how she told her life story with behind the scenes details on how 30 Rock got its start.
Tina Fey is a great reader -- she brings the book to life.
Loved her perspective on fashion shoots and Alec Baldwin.
I couldn't listen all at once -- it was a bit too much Tina Fey for that. But I looked forward to listening every night as I walked the dog!
Don't know - I haven't ready the print version.
The section regarding "Growing Up and Liking It."
Much of it made me laugh. Other parts of it were somewhat strange.
The section regarding Tina's honeymoon is also hilarious.
