GREAT listen! I think that this book would be funny without the audio, but listening to Tina Fey narrate her own book was a great treat and definitely added something to the whole experience. The chapter "That's Don Fey" will remind many of your childhood in the 70s and cause you to laugh out loud. You won't want to turn off the iPod for this one, and the kids/hubby might think you are crazy as you snicker to yourself, but it is WELL worth it :-)
I like to listen, read and get lost in a story.
The story was great. The narration was great. What's not to love about it!
Tina Fey brings her unique sense of comedy to the table which can be heard through her narration.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Short pieces of Tina Fey's life but gives us insight into her drive and character. All the while light and funny. Her comic writing abilities come through in the book. I loved it.
I don't usually like books that are read by the author but this one wouldn't be the same if read by any one other. I was on the verge of purchasing the Kindle edition when my librarian g-daughter insisted I go with the audio version. So glad that I took her advice. I laughed all the way through. Another Audible book that I was listening to (and 85% done) had to wait. Once I started Bossypants, there was no going back.
Tina Fey does not dissappoint in this hearty, effervescent, and fluid novel that spins the tragedy of life's blow-ups into an uber-fun autobiography! I love Tina! As I was listening to this book on audible.com, I laughed out loud so hard and so many times that I awakened my sleeping baby, who was not happy!
My favorite quote: "I have a rounded belly, supported by my rounded posture, which is sustained by all of my push ups, mostly of which is none..." or something like that!
Great listen. Tina Fey has always seemed great, and the book confirmed it for me. Great writer, great reader. "Doesn't do impressions." Ha, could have fooled me. She rocked it.
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.
