This is the only the 2nd audiobook I have listened it, but I did not want it to end.
I love the Rachel does not take herself too seriously. Her take on some of her experiences with her career, trying to find love, having a baby, etc had me laughing out loud on numerous occasions. She is hilarious, smart and a great storyteller. By the end of the book I felt like I knew her and was sad to say goodbye.
Yes, I think all Celebrity memoir audio books are better than the print edition, because they take less time and it is read by the celebrity.
I didn't know about Rachel Dratch's son and her relationship with the father, it's a very interesting story. I relate to her experiences in dating, so it was moving to hear her story of how she finally found a lasting relationship. It was also interesting to hear her experiences in Hollywood.
I didn't read the print version but I like that Rachel herself reads the audio version.
Yes. She is a good reader
This is not about show biz!
I liked the book. It took a different direction than I thought. It was funny but not in the same way. There were actually a lot of times I didn't laugh because the themes didn't really call for it. It was good though.
I cannot say as I do not own the print version
Bossy pants, because Tina Fey and Rachael Dratch have a lot of the same perspectives on life. Both are witty and frank when discussing personal topics
This book made me laugh out loud a few times
Rachel Dratch's voice shines through in her reading of "Girl Walks into a Bar," which makes the audiobook even better.
Dratch's off-beat style of comedy is spot-on. This book brought me back to some of her best on her SNL days.
Top 2 without a doubt.
This was my first comedy audio book. I've since listened to other SNL cast members with books, but nothing comes close to Rachel Dratch's Girl Walks into a Bar. I laughed out loud, I cried and laughed at the same time and the whole time I felt like Rachel was in the room with me. I love her story, how she told it and I'm rooting for her.
From start to finish. I could not stop listening to this book.
I love you Rachel and wish you all the best!

I'd been putting off listening to "Girl Walks into a Bar" because I'd previously enjoyed other audio books that include behind-the-scenes of "Saturday Night Live" type memories (Bedwetter, Bossypants). I'm pleased to say that Ms. Dratch proves once again that each performer's time at SNL is different enough to captivate all over again; plus - here - it's part of a much larger personal narrative.
While she gets a lot of comedy mileage out of the parade of not-quite-worthy potential mates, Dratch never loses sight of what their interactions reveal about herself - without getting preachy about it.
Ms. Dratch has an uncanny sense for delivering inner monologue with all the conflicting impulses and over-the-top hilarity that so commonly marks a neurotic's conversations with oneself.
Definitely a laugh-out-loud book, and definitely a can't-put-it-down.
I didn't find anything really interesting about her story and other than a couple of chuckles overall the book was pretty dull.
Yes, I've listened to it a few times already. It's just funny and interesting. She tells her life story the way Tina Fey did, with perspective and humor. By the end of the book I thought what a cool person Rachel Dratch is, and actually felt bad that I didn't really know who she was before.
It's about herself, so she was my favorite character. :)
She's a comedian, so of course she is funny, but also she is so real; panicked about the same things we all are, happy, sad.
The girl you don't remember you like. :)
Tell us about yourself!
I Loved Rachel Dratch on SNL, especially Debbie Downer, So listening to her narrate her own memoir was very entertaining. During parts where Ms. Dratch describes the availablity of roles offered as her career falters I started to feel uncomfortable as her talent is unquestionable but there were some 'downer' years for her to describe. I hated to feel sorry for her but even then the details are very interesting and fun to listen too. And you don't need to feel bad for long, the story really picked up for me in the middle to end as she moves to dating, falling in like, living through and welcoming an unexpected pregnancy and welcoming her baby to the world. A great read or listen.
There is nothing like hearing an author read their own story, especially when they are a talented comiedian.
