Please be warned, this audiobook may be dangerous when listening in the car. I laughed so hard it brought me to tears and it could not have been safe to be laughing that way while driving home from work! I loved this book, and I really think that Tina Fey did a great job at performing it (as expected) and I am glad that I got to listen to it rather than simply reading it.
I can't portray how much i enjoyed listening to this audiobook, I came home every day and re watched 30 rock and annoyed my husband with little tidbits of information while watching. I am sure he is happy that I have finished it! But I think I will listen to it again.
Thanks Tina for sharing and writing and reading. Oh, and I did not even notice her scar... but maybe I just need a better TV. I don't know.
Get this audiobook. It's great.
Yes, there were plenty of KILLER lines and quips
I very much enjoyed Tina's description of her childhood and her father.
I could have...
Although it was very entertaining I felt I didn't really learn anything terribly deep about Tina, and I wanted to.
I love Tina Fey, and enjoyed hearing her life story so far.
A lot of names mentioned, but if you're not in the US acting scene, they dont mean much!
When Tina swears, it sounds so contrived and unnatural. Also the narration basically sounded like her sitting there reading it out. If it's your own story, it should sound a bit more as though she is talking with you not at you. There was no natural tone or intonation.
Was ok, but not great.
Unless you're a big fan, i think you will find this a bit so so.
I'd never heard of Tina Fey before listening to this audiobook, and I don't own a TV so I had no idea about any of the shows she is talking about. Even with these disadvantages this was still a very enjoyable few hours. She has a knack for anecdote and a superb grasp of the punchy aside.
As Tina Fey, herself, narrates the book, you are able to understand her point of view from the tone and inflections in her voice better than if you were to simply read it. Not only that, but listening to her voice is awesome. Also, she ads little comments that would obviously not be in the printed edition.
Tina's advice about improvisation is helpful and amusing. It is also interesting that she uses it to relate back to everyday life. Another memorable moment was her commenting on the internet feedback she receives. Very funny.
It was so funny. Continuously through the book, I was laughed very loudly. This gave me a few odd looks when I was listening to it in public on my iPod.
Tina Fey is a genius and I recommend this book to any comedy-loving reader.
Tina Fey is a very talented writer and performer and this is really highlighted here. She is honest and open about the events that have moulded her life and the fact that she reads it herself provides an extra dimension of interest. Very highly recommended.
Tina is very funny and I could relate to what she was saying.
Hearing stories of her progressing through life was interesting. The book focusses way too much on '30 Rock' towards the end. I lost interest, but only right at the end.
Hard to say. We listened to it on a road trip, so it was one sitting regardless. It was entertaining, but I may not have started listening again had I stopped though.
Tina Feys comedic timing really enhances the telling of her own story. If you love 30 Rock, you'll listen to this at least 3 times.
Tina's life as a teenage girl and how she was introduced and fell in love with live theatre, acting and putting on a good show and as she got older, learning about what it means to be seen as an ambitious career woman in a male dominated industry. Many tongue in cheek moments.
You can tell how much work she put into this book and how passionate she is about her family, friends and work. Her execution was well timed and fricken hilarious.
Bossypants is a hilarious look at the life of an improv queen battling crotch biscuits and many more of life's challenges one laugh at a time.
I definitely would listen again! It's engaging and funny, and you can pretty much re-listen from whatever point in the story.
I loved the titles of each chapter, consistently witty.
Her voice is so well modulated, and really interested and not annoying.
