Hilarious! Real! Relate-able!
The examples of situations and personal remedies.
The part towards the end on raising a child.
I love it and will definitely be recommending it to many of my friends and family.
It's not a biography, exactly. Nor is it any kind of self help book for women who tend to wear bossypants. It's sort of both, but not really. It's hysterical, light in some ways, thoughtful in others.
Well, there is really only Tina, Don Fey, and the bossypants for me.
It's her story, so it's most appropriate that she reads it and gives it the inflections and tone that she wrote in it.
Wear 'em if you've got 'em.
I really enjoyed the story of Ms. Fey, as she shares the thoughts and memories and choices for her life. I would give her actual story the highest possible rating, because she is that kind of fabulous.
The production of the audiobook is severely lacking.
There are times it sounds as if Ms. Fey is being recorded in a bathroom shower with a strange echo. There are other times that it is obvious the producer/editor did not actually listen back to the full recording. Ms. Fey would speak a line and then automatically, repeat it in the same voice with a different inflection in her tone.
While repeated lines may actually appear in the book, on the audiobook it just sounds like someone was recording her on a cassette tape, pressed stop, asked her to repeat the same line, and then proceeded to press the record button again... without even bothering to rewind to the original point.
funny, self depreciating, opinionated
Don Fey - ( I picture tight shirts, cold eyes)
No had to break it up
I listen to audio books while at work and usually this is a good thing. However Fey's book got me some strange looks. I would burst out laughing in an other wise quite room.
I am sure her publicist said, "write a book" and so she did. Her style, wit, and the way she tells that story, is simply superb.
I really enjoyed Tina Fey's story, but the language was not what I would recommend to my daughter who was very interested in this book. I'm fine when bad language is in context, but it just seemed out of place in many instances.
It's funny but clever, she's down to earth and is able to make fun of herself, she's very approachable.
The re-play of the Sarah Palin/Hillary Clinton skit.
The intonation could not have been any better.
It made me laugh several times.
Can't wait for her next book if she ever writes another one.
Yes, I would recommend this book. It was interesting to hear about Tina Fey's rise to fame and it is filled with many funny stories and humor. I found it an entertaining listen.
I really enjoy learning about peoples lives and how they reached their success. This was more than just the facts. It was filled with Tina Fey's humor which made it very entertaining.
I have many favorites. The story about her disastrous honeymoon trip is interesting.
When Tina talked about her father.
Yes, it was so entertaining I listened to it while cooking (which I hate) and it made it so much more entertaining
The parts when she talked about the different skits she has done on SNL
She reads it so you are really hearing how she thinks about it and how she would say about it. I love that when I am listening to an audio book
I am not good at this kind of question
Yes, I would listen to this audio again! I am not a SNL fan, so I was steering left when I purchased this book. I was certainly not disappointed. She is candid, personal, easy to identify with and seriously funny. Would definelty recommend to other women out there who could use a good break away from their own for a few hours.
