Yes. Reminds me of David Sedaris' sarcastic wit, but from a straight woman's perspective, although I don't think her delivery is quite as good as his - probably because she speaks so rapidly that the humor doesn't have the comedic pause that his does.
She was so..down to earth...and very, very funny. She remembers intimate details about her life and when she shares those details, you feel you are right there as it is happening. She points out the humor in situations that I would never have seen!

This book was more than I expected. Tina gives you a lot of information about her personal history, events that shaped her and that she found particularly funny, how she got in show business, and how passionate she is for impowering women in her business. She rambles once or twice in the book, but her rambling is as endearing as she is.
No I can honestly say so. I kept hoping it would get better. I think one must know about this person to fully enjoy her story. i don't.
See above coment.
She is ?? very fast talker. Slow it up ?? bit. If she makes ?? point. Let it sink in ?? bit for the listener.
I absolutely loved this book. I downloaded it before work one day and finished it that afternoon. I couldn't turn it off. I'm not a die hard Tina Fey fan or anything, but this book has been on my
I bought this book solely on the high reviews and the high number of people who had listened to this book. I knew next to nothing of Tina Fey. I knew she was in 30 Rock, which was about the extent of the book. I came away just loving this funny , down to earth woman. On the other hand, I love Steve Martin, and have followed his career since the 70's., however, his autobiography left me cold. I knew nothing more about him than when I had before listening to the book. Im glad I took a chance on an unknown, (for me!) comedian, and got this books. I spent an enjoyable afternoon, laughing, and smiling my way through my day! Highly recommended.
I got hooked on 30 Rock through Netflix and just finished episode 102. Listening to Bossypants during my commutes rounded out the experience and filled in the gaps around this gifted artist.
Glimpses into the character and influences of Lorne Michaels were interesting. There has been a lot of throwaway material from SNL in the past, but there were also many iconic moments.
When a comedian narrates their own book, they can add so much to the product. Their intimate knowledge of the material can be reflected in the timing, intonation, and voices to take a book to the next level - performance.
I use audiobooks to make useful time of my commutes, so I always listen to books in 20-50 minute chunks. It's entertaining however you listen to this book. The pace is quick - you won't be bored.
If you liked this, and aren't offended by some rough language, you'll like Sarah Silverman's
Really enjoyed Tina reading it. I also liked hearing about the backstory of certain characters, like Sarah Palin.
A narrative with more substance.
No one could read her book better than she.
The stupid little internal voice
I really wanted to like this book more than I did
Hilarious, insightful, empowering.
The part when she described playing Sarah Palin on SNL and meeting her. Also, it was interesting to hear how she got into the business
I was so glad she narrated her own book - no one else could do it justice. She spoke quite fast and I wished she slowed down but it was still great. Her different voices were hilarious.
I laughed a ton!
