Tina Fey is great in this book and her narration here adds a lot. It is a true performance and ( the one thing you miss in an audible book is the pictures, right?) the included PDF file makes this a winner. This is one book where I think I can assure you that you will be glad you bought the audio version.
I loved this Audible book!! I spent sooo much time laughing while I listened to it. Tina Fey is incredibly funny and it was a pure joy listening to her .I do hope this wont be the last we hear from Tina as the way she tells a story keeps you interested.I think it would be great if she was the voice for other books too as her voice is great to listen to. This book takes you back from when she was a child through to recent years and I especially loved her tales of growing up .. There were tears running down my face I was laughing so much. I highly recommend this book.
Listened to this book while on a cruise and was caught laughing out loud by strangers several times. I think it was even better because Tina narrated it herself!
Tina Fey is, as always, perfect. Too bad it sounds like she recorded it herself. In her bathroom. On a cassette recorder. There are times when the sound is so hot that it has sharp echoes. Other times when her voice trails off into nothing--not just for effect, which is a choice she makes sometimes for the sake of humor--but just because, I guess, the sound tech didn't adjust the levels properly? Maybe? No matter. It's well worth the experience. Highly recommend.
I love Tina Fey's way of telling a story, and while her stories are hilarious, listening to her tell them absolutely makes her book. She's not condescending, pretentious or fake - she is a genuinely funny person, and that comes out in her manner of speech. It sounds more like she's out to coffee with you and is sitting across the table, filling you in on her disastrous honeymoon, among other things. The book is fantastic, yes, but please get the audio book, as this is the best way to experience her book.
What a great listen....Tina Fey made it feel so real, like I was listening to her across the table at lunch.....I laughed so much! so relateable.
This book absolutely fulfilled my expectations. I'm a huge fan of Tina Fey -- I think 30 Rock is the funniest show that's ever been on TV. Her writing is wry, witty, and brisk, and her narration enhanced rather than detracted from the text. The "prayer for my daughter" alone was worth the price of the book. I cried with laughter (and I almost never laugh out loud). Great piece of writing!!
A delight to listen to. Tina Fey is spunky, sweet, irreverant and hilarious in this book. Her true character shines through and it goes so fast, you'll wish there was more!
There are too many great things about this book to list here. I read the book in a day, and I really enjoyed it. However, I needed a fun, light audio book for a road trip and this seemed like it would be a good fit.
Listening to Bossypants on audible was an even better experience than reading the book. Tina Fey has a perfect voice for the job. She is both soothing and hilarious in all the right ways. Not only is this book funny--obviously she is where she is at because of her gift for awkward humor as well as intelligent, yet goofy wording of events--this book is really insightful as to how people get along, work well together, and also how ridiculous our society can be.
Read the book. Listen to the book. Love this book.
PS: plus, you will get some really cool audio surprises.
