I first read this book regularly, and bought the audio version so I could hear Tina Fey read it and am so happy with my purchase. It is witty and hilarious. Highly recommend.
Yes, entertaining bits of Tina Fey's life but not a party
More background on SNL, Second City
I found this to be a really interesting story, particularly the sections that focused on Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. Some of the jokes came across a bit forced when read aloud, that probably were funnier on the page, as if Tina Fey weren't entirely comfortable reading her own humor, so I preferred the parts where she was really getting into the details of her work.
At the top of the list.
Humor, honesty, stories I can relate to
I love her other work - script-writing and acting - but this was all Tina. You feel like you're having coffee with a best friend.
I was most moved by what she didn't say about her scar. You knew it greatly affected her life, but she didn't dwell on it.
I even bought a copy for my grown daughter, and she has listened to it twice as well!
A great rea... erm listen!
The life stories Mrs Fey includes in this book are funny and enlightening. Having Tina read it herself was even more of a plus. If you are a fan of hers, you wont be sorry on this great little bio.
Funny, girlie, entertaining.
Behind the scenes celebrities.
I enjoyed the
Frankness, humor. Insight into Tina Fey's background
Only the writer can add and/or emphasize things in the audiobook.
Well worth it. Highly recommended
I liked the honesty here. She shares a lot of personal information in a funny way.
I like that she constantly changed topics. She never dwelled on something so long that it became boring or overdone.
Because Tina reads the book, you know you're getting the right intonation. The subtleties of sarcasm and the timing of the jokes are spot on.
I'm an aspiring best-selling author, so I dream of seeing my own books on here one day. :)
This was my first audible.com audiobook, and it was a great way to kick off my membership! I loved hearing this book in Tina's own voice. It also included so many great extras (e.g., audio clip of her playing Sarah Palin on SNL).
Because I became a fan of Tina's after seeing her on SNL, it was fun and interesting to hear some behind-the-scenes stories, as well as to learn more about her as a person and not just her TV persona.
She's just awesome. Even though I would have read the story in her voice had I not listened to it via audiobook, her actual voice really made a difference. I'm sure it was much funnier thanks to her timing and pace, and the way she added what seemed like extra little comments (not sure these appeared in the physical book?).
That may have been nice, but devoting five hours in one sitting is usually pretty difficult. Instead, I planned to listen to it a little bit at a time during my drive to and and from work, and that's exactly what I did. It made me look forward to getting in my car every day!
If you're a fan of Tina Fey, or humor in general, I definitely recommend this one! :)

Tina Fey is a comedic rock star! She is easy to listen to, like your spending time with a close friend, only funnier!
Another funny listen is Ellen's
This was my first Tina Fey book..I don't watch her shows, but have seen her on SNL and in movies. I wasn't a fan before...I am now!
I laughed and laughed. I'm sure people in the cars around me thought I was crazy, what with the way I was smiling and giggling as I commuted to and from work!
