As a Tina Fey fan, I had high hopes for the book, and it completely delivered Not just a collection of anecdotes, but the story of Tina's childhood and road to the successful woman she is today. Of course her truthful, hysterical, friend in my head method of narrating the book is the deal breaker. I love how this was unexpectedly a girl power book while never meaning to be. Tina Fey, newly elevated BEST friend in my head, I love you.
I listened to this book while driving and literally had to pull to the side of the road because I was laughing so hard. Tina Fey delivers a hilarious performance and I enjoyed hearing more about her roots and background. If you're a Tina Fey fan, this is a must-listen.
I LOVE when authors read their own books! Tina Fey is a true actor and it comes out in every word of her book. Her words are incredibly full of life and inflection and innuendo and overall I found Bossypants easy to follow, and hard to put down!
Responding to fan mail she found on completely random message boards on the net. Man, i wish I could take criticism with that kind of grace.
She has talent and a great sense of humor. Why does she have to be so crude and use foul language? I saw the extremely high ratings and bought it, then began listening to it with others around and nearly broke my leg trying to get to my computer to turn it off when the crude language began. Is it just so part of everyone's life that it's not a big deal anymore? Sorry, it's not my thing and I wish it would have contained a warning saying, "Explicit language".
It wasnt the story, it was the build up from other reviewers that left me disappointed. It was kinda funny, but I didnt almost wreck my car over it.
I am a huge Tina Fey fan. But I wanted to hear more about her life not about babys and mom stuff. The parts about her being a mom and her family were great! But there was a lot of irrelevant topics that I could tell was just "book filler". The book was funny! But I had more fun reading Sarah Silvermans "the Bedwetter" and Rachel Dratchs "Girl walks into a bar" books. Those were great! No matter what though I still love Tina Fey too!
My perception of Tina Fey, before I read this book, was that she would be more sarcastic and that the book would be filled with one liners. Instead, I was treated to a little bit of insight into her personality as well as some of her challenges in life. Good listen!
Yes, it was so funny and inspiring
When she was talking about having another child as an older mom.
you get to know her better
When she was thinking about having more children in her 40's.
This book was so good. I wish I had listened to it when it first came out.
