Entertaining, fun, light
Bossypants reminds me of some of David Sedaris honest appraisal of life and his amusing perspective on it.
Tina Fey brings her comedic tone and timing to the reading of her own work, which helps to communicate some of the humor which might be lost if I just read it myself.
My husband and I laughed out loud with this book.
Even though I don't watch television and some of the references were difficult to get (such as references to her show 30 Rock) there were still plenty of parts that were highly entertaining, particularly Tina's take on being a working mother.
The best part of this book is hearing Tina Fey talk about her life. She is very funny, in the self-deprecating way that is her classic style. The highlight was hearing the live performance on SNL of Amy Poehler as Hilary Clinton and Tina Fey as Sarah Palin.
Otherwise, the story was mildly interesting and the humor kept me going.
Bossypants is a fun listen and worth the time.
Hilarious! Well written and very well performed by the author.
I absolutely love Tina Fey. This book is a joy.
I would definitely listen to this again. First and foremost, because I laughed... a lot. Secondly, because Fey's writing is both extremely funny and insightful. The final reason is a bit negative. I would listen to it again because I had to since there were many times her voice trailed off into mumbling (for the effect of humor) and was not understandable - at least to me.
There were too many to recount, though I loved her stories about her father... especially his two most used words - inexcusable and defective (with a bulls**t thrown in there as well).
The SNL skit of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as Palin and Clinton (respectively).
Extremely enjoyable. I love that her politics (which this is not a political book but her thoughts do come through pretty loud and clear) are informed by personal experiences rather than an ideology handed down to her from her family of origin.
I'm a big fan of 30 Rock so I really enjoyed hearing a bit more about Tina Fey's life and career. I don't listen to autobiographies often but since I enjoy her sense of humour I thought it was worth a try. I was not disappointed. The book is witty and well written. I enjoyed it thoroughly and broke into laughter more than once.
Best was it was funny. I purchased because I love comedy.
Least was it was more about women's rights to work alongside men in showbusiness. Not what I thought it would be about.
Yes, her delivery was priceless!
Everything, she was very engaging.
It was nice to hear how she tranitioned through life and I appreciated how frank and honest she was. Very refreshing.
I recommended the book to many people in print, but the audible book was pure entertainment!
Yes, she does a very good job. She makes you feel like you are getting to know her.
This was a really good book. Having it read by Tina makes it that much more enjoyable. It did get a little long at some points. Overall, a great book.
Smart. Rapid. Entertaining.
Her impersonation of Paul Lynde will make milk shoot out of your nose.
Describing her Dad.
Watch 30 Rock. Please.
Best biographical journey by a comedian of 2011.
