I love Tina Fey....she has the best voice for an audio book. I know people on the commuter train give me funny looks when I laugh out loud listening to this but I can't help it. And I don't ever laugh out loud listnening to an audiobook...maybe a big smile but thats it. Tina has a very quick wit and it shines in the presentation of the story. I enjoyed listening to how 30 rock came to be and how aweful the pilot was. I was intrigued so I Netflixed the show and found it incredibly funny...but then again I'm not a writer so perhaps I just don't get the flaws. Politically I am more like her parents in the book (Republican) however her political views in no way distract from the entertaining value of the book. She plays a SNL skit in the book about Sarah Palin and it is hilarious! It's a great listen and you should get it immediately.
Thought this would be a really funny and light read. It was light but not too many laugh out loud funny parts. I was pretty disappointed.
I bought this book as I was going to make a car trip of about 7 hours.
This book certainly kept me entertained. There are funny parts, some serious one, and also anecdotes from Tina Fey's SNL life.
Time flew by with it during the trip.
Tina Fey is hilarious! Her comedic delivery is perfect and the material is relate-able.
The only thing I cannot understand is, how can such a beautiful woman have so many insecurities? It was shocking to hear that from her....
If you like Tina Fey, this is a must! Very funny, entertaining, and fast paced story. I couldn't put it down. Tina Fey as herself makes the story even more likable.
Say something about yourself!
This book was fun to listen to. I felt like a good friend was telling me about parts of her life.
I was entertained the entire time, and feel as though I have a little more insight into the business/life of acting and comedy.
I always look for the author to be the narrator for books like autobiographies so that you know you're getting all the nuances in the storytelling. Tina Fey does not disappoint when it comes to conveying all the little extra emotions in her stories. But now and then she talks much to quiet in her short, one-sentence sidebars. Even after cranking up the volume, they get muffled and incoherent. It's too bad, since the ones I COULD hear were often quite funny. Overall, a short read that's worth quite a few laughs. Tina is one heckuva performer/writer and it was interesting to hear some of the backstories before her SNL breakout.
