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.
Yes. Her voice is priceless
Her behind the scene at her impersonation of Sarah Palin
Her humor. Her sense of intimacy. It feels at if you ar having a drink with her and she is telling you her personal experiences.
Her being thorn at the image of the ideal mother while still loving her career. Any working mother that loves her career has been there.
She refers to images of the book and invites you to look at them at your electronic version, but I could not do that...It feels like as a listener you are missing part of the story by not being able to check on those images. PLEASE FIX THAT. Still, it was amazing.
Bossypants was a great book to listen to for many reasons. A few of those reasons to me are that she reads the book so she can put the right emphasis on the words. Also that it gave me a better understanding on how SNL, and 30 Rock work. It was fun to listen to it and also learn.
I gave it two stars because I am trying to be nice. I love Tina, her impression of Palin is perfect as has been her work on SNL and 30Rock. This just is not that good of a book. I would have expected a little more depth from a UVA grad and from all the positive reviews and the time spent on best seller list. The book is mostly banal and rarely that funny. Especially at the end when she agonizes about whether she wants to have a baby or not. I understand this is an interesting important dilemma for her and her husband, just not for the reader. Tina also should not have read her own book. Her voice trails off when she is adding a cynical aside at the end of a sentence and her other biting sarcasm does not build her image either. Save your credit.
We all know that Tina Fey is hilarious, but no everyone realizes how brilliant she is until this book. She's keenly aware of the disadvantages that come with being a woman in a
This was the first audiobook I ever finished. Usually I get bored with the narrator, or feel like I could read the story faster. Not this time! Fey kept me laughing all the way. Her greatest strengths come out when she's talking about a serious topic. Then her insights are penetrating, but her humor keeps them from being too overbearing. If you love Tina Fey, or just want a good laugh from a smart, quirky comedian, this is the book for you!
Though it was fabulous hearing Tina Fey narrate, this type of story line might be easier to follow and look back on in printed book form. In the book there are photos and diagrams that she refers to that you don't get to experience in the audio format, yet in the audio format you get to experience her voice and actual recordings of her Palin skits. She referred to the PDF for reference, yet I never saw a PDF link which could be my blonde roots talking.
Our book club had to make up discussion questions for this book. A follow up with book discussion questions would be helpful.
Clear, Concise, Non-annoying!
Not necessarily. Tina Fey could do another book non-relating to this one.
Overall great listen!
Absolutely essential reading for comedy fans everywhere
I didn't expect this to be so gender-centric but it was cool to see how Tina Fey overcame a lot of biases and stereotypes to be the success she is today.
You have to hear her say out loud:
yes, given the time
It was easy listening, she has a good voice and funny stories.
Tina Fey of course
There's nothing like experiencing Tina Fey's own words in her own voice and inflection. Her timing, as always, is impeccable -- and the
With a book by Tina, you would expect laughs, and you will not be disappointed!
