Tina Fey is undoubtably a very talented comedian and there are some genuine laugh out loud moments in this book. I did however find some of her humour a little 'forced" at times. By this I mean that some of the stories seem to be exaggerated to maximise their comedic effect. Maybe it's just me but I prefer my comedy to be a bit more believable.
"It's fast; it's funny, it's Tina Fey"
This is a quick and fun listen. Tina Fey reads her own book excellently; no problem with capturing the authorial voice! She knows how to find the funny and comes across as someone you really want to get to know.
A strong, funny, intelligent woman. Awesome.
"Extremely funny and wholeheartedly recommended"
This audio book is brilliant, and I wholeheartedly recommend it. It is consistently funny and Tina Fey, as you might expect, does a great job of narrating.
I also really appreciated that bits were altered from the print edition to work in audio form, as well as the inclusion of one of her Saturday Night Live Sarah Palin skits and other nice touches. Or as another reviewer says rather more succinctly, it's an audiobook that knows it's an audiobook.
But Audible.co.uk: where's the PDF to which she refers several times? I can't see it available to download on your site (possibly because I'm being an idiot). I would really like to see a copy!
The best thing about this book is Tina's voice. Better than reading it...buy it now!
Absolutely loved this book. A cosy uplifting audiobook. i prefered this format to the book, as tina's naration adds so much great comedy moments. impecable timing!!
"Like chatting to Tiny Fey for a few hours"
Not much of a structure to it, which was fine by me - it was like you've met Tina Fey at a party and asked her a few questions. I really enjoyed listening to her just talk!
"not deep but entertaining"
a mindless easy listen while running. kind of like chatting to a friend. I laughed out loud a few times. She reads it well.
"so much fun! brill read! and lots of lol moments!"
so so much fun! brilliant read! and lots of lol moments! hope Tina writes more!
Honest and hilarious! Well read and thoroughly enjoyable, I am now a fan! I would recommend!
"For lovers of SNL and 30Rock"
One of the best.
So many great anecdotes. She delivers some fab stories relating back to her first job, improv workshops, snl, Sarah Palin, Lorne Michaels, Alec Baldwin, Amy poehler and others. If you are already a fan of hers, this will go down a treat...
Tina is funny, warm, sarcastic, clever and comfortably plays with the format of the audiobook
Nice to spread out over a few train journeys, many great stories that give you a smile.
