Yes, because it's light and a funny . It's interesting hearing her perspective on things.If youve read any other of the SNL bios, I think this one may be the funniest
Um yeah this is an autobiography so I'll go with Rachel Dratch
It's her own voice and who knows better how to use the proper inflections?!!!
It made me laugh a lot!
Give it a try...
I cycled between frustration and boredom for the duration of the book.
You know that one chapter in Tina Fey's otherwise endearing and hilarious "Bossypants" where she gets all whiney and self absorbed about reproduction? Thats the ENTIRETY of this book.
I would recommend it to every girl that feels really aware in the dating world. It really happens to every girl. So its good to know that you are not alone there, that there is someone else feeling the same insecurities, it don`t matter if it`s a famous person.
The letter that Rachel received from her boyfriend`s brother was great, so thoughtful.
Say something about yourself!
This book is like listening to Tina Fey's book. Again. In fact there are chapters that are THE EXACT SAME MATERIAL. (i.e. the Second City material, SNL material). The narration and writing are a poor imitation of Tina Fey's book. So get the original....
Copied Tina Fey
Copied Tina Fey
Fey's was funnier.
My apologies to Miss Dratch but I just couldn't love this book. While she offered several wonderful anecdotes, none of them make this book memorable. I think if she might have expanded more on either life as a comedienne or as a 40 year old mom, it would have been better than trying to cover both parts of her life in one book.
Yes, in addition to being witty her tales of being an actress without looking like a 10 is heartfelt and helpful.
How real and honest she was without it being a whoa is me tale.
I laughed and I cried.
Audible has been a friend, a companion, and even a connection with my daughter as the process of physical recovery continues.
Rachel Dratch is not surprisingly, really funny in this autobiographical work as she takes us through her life and her career as an entertainer. Her misfit youth and the poor choices she invariably makes in choosing men that evidently began in the eighth grade. She takes us through her years as an undergraduate at Dartmouth, then the years she spent learning her craft working with the Second City comedy troupe. She covers her auditions for SNL and finally getting on the classic late night show as a cast member on the third try. Like most successful comics she has the ability to turn her pain into humor. She's able to describe some painful situations in a way that come off as humorous; though at times there is pain in her voice that belies the light touch she attempts to use throughout the book. An easy way to pass five hours; a pleasant and humorous listen.
Well I always liked Rachel based on her performances, I was hoping this would be a funny casual listen but this is a total whine fest about how much her life sucks.
Still slogging through, couple hours to go
Worth avoiding unless your life sucks more than hers
