Man, I needed that. As a matter of fact, I keep going back to it when I need a little mood lifter. A times, it is laugh out loud funny. Really helped me get through a bummer time.
Even if you can switch your inner voice over to Tina Fey's, inflections and all, her performance in this audiobook adds so much funny to the already entrenching stories and anecdotes. Even for someone who doesn't watch 30 Rock (don't stone me), I enjoyed every bit of this book. I bought the book because I enjoyed her writing and figured I'd enjoy whatever topic she wrote on, and she absolutely delivered. Instead of tossing out a bunch of inside jokes to cater to die-hard watchers, the stories were inclusive of all audiences and I imagine equally interesting to both as they have a peak behind the curtain and into her brain.In true Fey style, she covered a wide variety of topics that usually make people (coughespeciallydudescough) wildly uncomfortable (most prominently: sexism, and feelings) but delivered them in a way that's not only funny but delicious. To use Fey's analogy, it's like Jessica Seinfeld's brownies with spinach, gobbled down by all without knowing of her nutritional trickery. Suckahs!.In fact, calling this book funny is insulting. Funny is what you call a story told at a dinner party that's mildly interesting but not enough to illicit a laugh. Or grumpy cat. This book is witty and belly-laugh inciting.
Don Fey. Obvi.
I enjoyed some laughs and Tina Fey's narration. But, sometimes the jokes got old, and I got tired of hearing her perspective. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but listening to the book was like sitting next to a person that constantly speaks about themselves and their opinions. Thankfully she is funny and can tell a good story. But, by the end, I was more than ready to move on. If you like memoirs, this might be a good choice - if not, I'd try something else.
I'm sure I will. It's hilarious!
I think most people can relate to her. She talks about growing up, being awkward, working, getting old, etc. Plus, I just really like Tina Fey. I mean, who doesn't?
It's probably not a good idea to listen to this around other people with your ear buds in. You will look like a crazy person when you bust out in laughter. Trust me. Although, I did offer an ear bud to a friend on a flight to Chicago. It's okay to look crazy, if you have someone to look crazy with you, right?
Tina Fey Is wonderfully hilarious and her life, prior to becoming a star, was just a normal life. The story is light and doesn't require your full attention, so you can listen while putting on your face, driving, cooking, etc.
Only having seen her on SNL. I can't really compare her in character to her in reality.
I laughed, a lot.
A credit well spent.
Say something about yourself!
A realistic feminist book
Tina's personal growth
Women in the work place, and her daugther.
She is Empowering without beig a crazy feminist. In a funny way she explains how can you be the boss without losing yourself.
Listened to this book on a long drive and loved every second. Like watching an 6 hour stand up comedy show. Literally laughed out loud while stuck in traffic, my car neighbors though I had lost it. Must listen if you, like me, are a Liz Lemon fan. Enjoy!
I love literary books! When it comes to audible though, I love non-fiction. I intend to try a lot more regardless. :)
I was a beginner at Audible and I wanted to try something that would not deter my attention away from the person reading, so I picked the marvelous, Tina Fey. Knowing that she is a very funny lady, I knew that I wouldn't be disappointed with my choice.
I wouldn't have said that her book was riviting, nor would I say that the chapters were very long or expertly written, but I would say that she had a way of telling her story that made the reader interested. She talked mostly about her life, how it shaped her into the person she is today. It's just as simple as that. It is a book that can be listened to in quick snippets, like washing the dishes, or switching a load of laundry. It wasn't a book that you had to listen to continuously and so you didn't have ot worry where the story stopped. Overall, it was a good book, read by the author who spoke about her own points of view and this is what made it enjoyable.
Short, funny, and so perfect, I really enjoyed reading Bossypants. It's definitely one of the best non-fiction audiobooks I've listened to.
Clearly, Tina Fey.
She's so funny and despite what she says, I think she does great impressions.
I laughed a lot.
