... And now I know. And now I love her.
Here in South Africa we've been watching SNL and 30 Rock and other new releases, basically express from the US, if not exactly the same night it's aired there, then at least a few hours or days later. And especially after the Palin/Fey debacle during the election at that time, the world (or rather I) stood up and wondered, Who is this Tina Fey?
I have listened to her audio book many times over... And it is a true gem. I love her style of reading, I love the goodness of her being that resonates in every (EVERY) single story, and I highly recommend it as a purchase/read.
This is what happens when someone with the combination of a high IQ, as well as the kind hearted diplomacy/mercy of an enormous EQ, narrates a book that seeks to make people smile or laugh.
Miss Fey has a fan in me. Talented. Real Lady. Much respect you gentle-kind-hearted-geeky person (person meant here, in all sincerity, as a term of endearment).
Tina Fey's delivery is perfect, she even includes audiobooks 'insider' jokes. She writes in a series of mini-essays on different topics and covers everything from children to what it's REALLY like on photo shoots to her days on Saturday Night Live. It is lively, entertaining and very funny.
Too hard to pick a favourite. Her overall performance was just brilliant.
It made me laugh out loud on many, many occasions. Particularly, the essay about her child that began with 'First Lord, no tattoos...'
If you need an audio book that's easy to slot in and out of without losing any kind of 'plot', this is perfect. If you need something that's wonderfully written, well observed and laugh out loud funny in places, this is perfect. If you like Tina Fey, this is perfect. Even if you don't, I kind of think she will grow on you. I love this audio.
Even though I wasn't overly familiar with Tina Fey when I chose this book, I still loved every second of it. She is funny, witty and insightful!
She brings character to the book when she reads it too you and it feels more in depth.
I would of if I could of! I listened to it mainly on buses and trains. Just try not to laugh out loud in public!

Funny, awkward, entertaining
Shes as fun in voice as she is on screen if your a fan you will love it
Yes. I'm only selectively read biographies, and Tina Fey's book was a very entertaining story from start to finish. Her reading of the book was a big bonus for me, and really made her stories all the more memorable.
Tina Fey of course! :-)
funny, entertaining, easy
easy to listen to, i really bought it to try out audible, so i picked a short book but ended up really enjoying it and having a good laugh!

Obviously Tina Fey she is an amazingly funny women sometimes without even trying
Herself and Sarah Palin
Behind the laughs things are never as they seem
The fact that Tina Fey actually read this as well as writing it made the book soo much more, I feel that reading this in print would not have the same feeling. The best part about this book is that Tina doesnt stick to the usual style of an Autobiography of a celebrity where their life is laid out for you in chronological order stating then this happened then this happened. I love the fact that Tina jumps forward in time and then back again it keeps you interested. The other thing I like about this is she makes it so easy to listen too as I was listen I actually pictured her in my head sitting in front of a mic reading and making faces and gestures, it made you feel like she was telling you this story one on one.
All in all this was a great great great read and the only down side is that it wasnt long enough MORE TINA I WANT MORE. I will definitley recommend to all people I know that they need to get this as an audio book. I guarentee you will be pissing yourself laughing in the first 12 mins.

Short, sweet, and often laugh-out-loud
A lovely trip down Tina's wonderfully unique memory lane.
No I would not listen to the story again, not in the near future anyway. It was good the first time and that suits me just fine.
I'm new to audio listening and Bossypants has encouraged me to listen to more. A similar audio book would be Moranthology by Caitlin Moran which I'm slowly getting through.
