I gave this audible version of Bossypants five stars because although I haven't read the book, I imagine the listen is actually a better experience. It's Tina Fey narrating, and she's just, well, really funny and is a great storyteller. There are also clips from the shows that she has been on and helped write. There are a lot of audio additions that make the audible version a really great experience. Tina Fey is a strong woman with great insight and her witty sarcasm is brilliant. I may also be biased because I am a woman and this definitely is a read aimed at women. But, yeah, give it a listen.
Hilarious book, excellent reading by the author. Probably one of the best audio books I've listened - basically I spent the entire five+ hours laughing out loud on a plane and in my car! Get this now, you won't be disappointed!!
I haven't always been a Tina Fey fan (and frankly not a big fan of 30 Rock) but after this book I'm ready to sign up for her fan club. I found her humor on target and the book engrossing. Thanks Tina!
After listening to Bossypants, I went back to the book to check what I had suspected all through out listening to it.
Bossypants is read very well. It is engaging, funny, and exactly what we have come to expect from Tina Fey. But it is a book that is difficult to read. Ms. Fey breaks from traditional writing forms so frequently that it is distracting to the reader. This is why you have to listen to it.
As an audiobook, it is simply great. And I enjoyed every minute of listening to Ms. Fey's humor playing out in this format. If you are thinking about either getting the book or the audiobook, get the audiobook. You won't be disappointed.
Bossypants is laugh out loud funny. It's made even better because of Tina Fey's narration. I highly recommend to anyone with a sense of humor.
Tina is the funniest, the best - someone you want to have many dinners with - I laughed out loud.
We need more TInas in this OH SO serious world!
This is funny yet also covers important issues and hearing it in the author's voice is icing on the cake! Her style suggests she is talking to you as an "insider". Truly enjoyed.
Color me impressed. I always thought she was talented --NOW I KNOW how VERY talented she is. If you sorta like her, read this book: You will fall in love with her. If you already love her, then this book simply seals the deal! I highly recommend this book!
Life -long reader, been in a Book Club with same women for 20 years! Between books, my Nook , & audible, I have read 26 good books in 2011!
I laughed while I walked, gardened, cooked dinner and waited in lines (many people assumed I was insane). Tina Fey is brilliant but so normal; could totally related to much of her life and her reactions to the funny things that happened in her. Have passed this on to my husband (who laughed as hard as I did) and to several friends who now want to give it their friends. Tina Fey's reading the book with her breathy little asides are what make the audio book particularily great.
