Bossypants had so many short chapters, it was easy to listen to in bursts in between errands.
My favorite part of the story were the stories about Don Fey.
I liked that Tina herself read the story. She knew it because it was hers and the delivery was great. However, I think Tina has a small lisp; it occasionally comes across.
I did laugh out loud a few times while listening to this book. I thought the discussions of her wondering about another child were often sad.
I already did listen to it again and I'm sure I will listen to it many more times. Love it - the funniest thing I have ever heard!
This was my first, but I will seek out others.
I laughed (out loud in my car) hysterically for the whole book. Both times.
Please read it; it will add years to your life expectancy.
Tina Fey is all kinds of rad. I love her sense of humor
Tina Fey. Duh. She does a great job describing her parents and I loove how she describes Kim Kardashian.
How honest she is about being a mom, wife and professional.
Yes, Tina Fey is performer and her voice inflections during the audiobook performance make the book even funnier. The dramatic pauses and voice shifts give the stories a deeper resonance.
I have not read anything like this book before. I hope it is the first of many.
Fey brings a back-stage perspective to the world of SNL and Thirty Rock and how Loren Michaels manages these television shows.
I listened to this book while gardening, and I was giggling out loud!
Yes I would. She has a great sense of humor and having Tina read her own book is perfect. Its nice to have every sarcastic comment in her voice!
I love her talking about when she worked in a Chicago YMCA. I work at a Y and it is so funny to hear her take on it.
Yes it was hard to stop listening to her. And I listen to books at work so I found my self laughing out loud and people looking at me funny.
Listening to Tina Fey read this book is so entertaining. It's light and funny and very enjoyable.
I would totally recommend this book - Tina is witty, charming and had me laughing throughout the entire book.
Tina's voice really brings to book to life. Her enunciations on certain words and voices when telling stories really add to the book and make it more of a performance. I really enjoy Tina's voice and appreciate her humor more after listening to this book.
This book made me laugh out loud multiple times, which got be some strange looks when I was out in public but it was worth it.
I would listen to this book again! In fact I have and enjoyed it just as much the second time around.
I enjoyed hearing about the creative process on both SNL and 30 Rock.
By far I enjoyed Sarah Palin the most.
Yes I loved her reference to the crazy Sesame Street spot and her likening it to how women need to navigate in the male world of network television.
People who like midless and vulgar shows.
It has never been my type of book. The only reason I bought it was because everyone seemed to like it and laugh a lot. I never laughed once. Really terrible!
It is best to have the author read it, especially when it is personal.
The whole book...it would have never seen the light.
I was hoping to get a laugh or something, but it is a mindless wandering of thoughts on how a description can be worst than the previous, and trying to make that pass as art or entertainment. Worthless. Do not spend your money on this.
Yes, I'd recommend it. It's a funny, easy, and relatively short listen. Tina Fey does a great job; she has a few mannerisms that can get a little annoying -- like talking low and mumbling when she hits with a punchline -- but it's otherwise a very lively listen.
