Loved listening to Tina tell her story herself. Sometimes the story of her life bogged a bit - weren't we all misunderstood teen losers? But there are many funny lines that only she could tell. Her reading made it clear that she knew you were listening to an audio book, but it was kind of disheartening how many times she referred to a pdf that supposedly came with the book that I couldn't access.
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.
