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!
"Love her even more now"
I've listened to a few of these and some people I love in writing don't translate well to audiobooks, however I've loved this book, it was true to Tina's personality, style and tone (some definitely aren't) and made me love her even more!
"Very Tina Fey"
This is just very Tina Fey...self-deprecating, dry, witty, vulnerable and smart. I would recommend this.
"not my usual kind of book but good for a giggle"
read wonderfully by Tina. I would have short changed myself if I'd bought a hard copy.
Absolutely loved the book. highly recommend this as well as Amy Poehler's audiobook. both have made my days better!
"Funny and Smart - Just like Tina Fey"
I can see myself going back to it if i need something to pick me up. Light, entertaining and interesting.
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!!
