Have loved books and reading since I was a wee one and could not live without books. BUT due to a hectic schedule have found I don't have the time I once did for nightly reading so I've grown to love audio books!
Yes, it's hysterical read by Tina Fey because it is her life!
A funny, moving, LOL listen and I enjoyed this audiobook thoroughly!
I'm a high school English teacher, partner, mom, daughter, sister, and adventurer.
Bossypants is one of the best audiobooks I've listened to! Tina read it with conviction and hilarity.
Since this was autobiographical comedy, Tina was my favorite character.
Tina's sense of comedic timing is awesome. She's self deprecating which makes her approachable and relatable. So many listeners should be able to empathize with her scenarios.
Tina Fey's book is funny and poignant. Having her narrate it really adds life to what is already a pretty engaging book. Really enjoyed this and would certainly recommend it.

I had the book on my ipod, so I couldn't see what sounded like hilarious PDFs, but Tina Fey is an awesome performer, and I can't imagine not hearing it in her voice.
Tina Fey is an incredibly smart, self-aware feminist in show business. She made me laugh, but also think very seriously about issues like body image, motherhood, and being a woman in any career where people automatically think you won't succeed. I think about this book all the time.
she's TINA FEY! Also audio clips from SNL that were hilarious.
Many, but especially the moment when Amy Poehler makes a dirty joke and, when Jimmy Fallon complains about how it's "not cute," Amy's "eyes went black, she turned to Jimmy and said, 'I don't care if you LIKE it.'" Tina's response in her own head was, "My friend is here! My friend is here!" (paraphrasing from what I remember)
While I never read the print version, hearing the text in Tina's voice was awesome. I think I wouldn't enjoy the print version as much.
Anything by David Sedaris.
Though I like Tina Fey's reading, she sometimes mumbles, speaks to fast, or her voice drops off at the end of a sentence. Although I loved the book, it was not great for listening in situations with competing noise, such as the car or even under earphones unless in a quite place.
This was my first, going to be hard to compare after that
HUMOR and Real life
I'm very glad I didn't buy the print version, because the audio is EXCELLENT. Tina Fey delivers an amazingly funny performance.
I really enjoyed a lot of the stories from behind the scenes at SNL.
She uses a lot of voices and characters for the people and events that she describes. It really adds a lot to the story.
Probably one of the most creative audiobooks I have had the pleasure of listening to!
