She's sweet and funny. I was personally put off by how little she is educated about birth, because I think of all the women who read or listen to this who may then also assume that what doctors tell them about "needing" a c-section is true, about the "need" for ultrasounds (that actually are completely inaccurate at determining the amount of amniotic fluid), etc. But I appreciate her discussion of the beauty standard and everything else. Very heartwarming and pleasant book.
I've always loved this actress- she's perfection!
Her storytelling style is lovely- sharp narrative peppered with witty short lines a la Chinese Poetry to accentuate a beat in her story.
Who knew she was such a hippy at heart, a foodie and a good girl?
Screw Hollywood- she's is lovely in every way- I wished she would produced her own shows and films- she can certainly write and preform comedy...
Reading this book makes you want to see more of her- enjoy!
Not one of my favorites. A little dry.
I doubt it, the book fell short. It was interesting only because of her comedy work - she was honest but took too much of a feminist approach. Definitely a different side from what you see on TV.
No, I'll stick to watching her in sketch comedy.
This book should not not be suggested after Bossypants and Yes, please. Rachel comes across as whiny, boring, and privileged. She literally has a chapter dedicated to explaining why, as an unemployed woman, she chose not to have a nanny. And another chapter dedicated to the shame and embarrassment she felt when a vibrator bought for her by someone else was almost discovered. Unlike Tina and Amy, she lacks female empowerment and isn't someone you can relate to. Furthermore, this audiobook simply isn't funny.
That was the line that finally made me laugh out loud. Her tales of learning comedy at Second City and SNL were informative and interesting, but she really got funny when she talked about life with a baby.
Thoroughly enjoyed it...thanks for sharing, Rachel!
Rachel Dratch is a beautiful talent! I love this book. It was not only well written but well read. She seems so sincere and genuine, I feel like I know her- but I promise I won't act like it if I pass you on the street.
I bought this audio book based on the title. Sounded funny and I was bored at the time. Plus the lady on the cover had a funny face. I had no clue who the author is. I don't watch much TV. I actually googled 'SNL'.
I like to be surprised. And boy ... was I surprised.
Amazing work of art!
