I like Tina Fey. And I especially liked that she read the book so that it could be told exactly as she wanted it read. It was funny, perhaps a bit more dry than I'd like. Although she told a lot of what happened in her life, for me, the depth just wasn't there. And I guess that's what I was hoping for more or wanted more. Perhaps breaks from the humor or dryness. Some real felt sentiment told in a normal way or in between the humor.
All in all I'm glad I bought it and listened to it. Just wish I'd heard more of the real Tina and not just the comedian.
Yes it did make me laugh and smile quite a bit.
I own both versions, but it is definitely more fun to hear the author and experience the story.
The story has too many characters to choose, but Tina, being the storyteller and author, was the most interesting character of all.
Tina Fey expresses her personality by narrating the story. Instead of reading it myself, I had a complete visual of Tina Fey, connecting the voice with who I recognized her as a comedian.
....Tina Fey, not who you think she is.....
This is an excellent read for anyone who enjoys sarcastic, real, yet traditional humor. Tina Fey is a wonderful writer and entertainer, so this book gives the listeners an inside look on what they may know, or not know, about the wonderful author. Loved it!
Funny, interesting, nostaglic
the stories about her dad.
Having grown up in the same area the stories about her youth were particularly funny
I bought the book for my wife to listen to on her way back and forth from work. I listened to it anyway. And I learned a few things. Though comic in most of the presentation, Tina shares some pretty important things about the world she inhabits and, for a man, some other things that are really worth thinking about. Glad I sneaked a listen of my own. My wife found it a so-so read, or listen.
I've always appreciated Tina Fey's quirky personality and sense of humor. It was great to be able to hear her read her work.
This book was a mix between personal anecdotes and stories from her work as a performer and writer. It was a good balance of both.
Her performance as a reader of her book was consistent with her performance as an actor.
I read this book while running and it completely kept me going. Tina Fey's voice comes through as authentic-- and it was entertaining AND laugh out loud funny.
I think so... It's her life story, told by her. I felt like I was having a conversation with her
I loved her included PDF and I was just rolling through the whole book
I was reluctant because I thought it was just going to be all about being a business woman in a man's world, but this book is cover to cover hilarious and I'm so glad I bought the audio version.
It was both witty and inspiring. Great for easy listening and not bad as a mood lifter. Nothing takes the edge off a fourteen hour drive like raw sarcasm and wit.
Most memorable was Tina Fey's account of her father. Don Fey sounds like a man you did't cross. Stylish and firm. They don't make them like that anymore. "People recognized him. They would say, 'Hey that's Don Fey!'"
I enjoyed hearing her voice and inflection reading the account of her own life. There was something very real about her story that was only magnified by the grit of her own voice.
I did listen to this book all in one sitting. Unfortunately I was driving so I didn't get to see the Downloadable PDF until I made it to my destination. Funny Stuff!
Wouldn't know but would expect it to given the narrator.
Chelsea Handler's books in that both are funny and frank explorations of the absurdities of female life. However, Fey's book is much cleaner, more cerebral and less cynical.
As Fey makes fun of herself, it becomes more relatable and funny rather than embarrassing or wince-worthy.
I looked forward to my 45 mile commute just to listen to this book and was disappointed when it was done.
Yes especially since Tina Fey is reading it to you.
Steve Martin's Born Standing Up. They are both comedians though their stories are very different.
I have not but if she has read before I would consider looking for those books.
Absolutely. Very entertaining.
