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.
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.
