I've read Fey and Poehler's books and now the trifecta is complete with Dratch's insightful book. I finished this book in 1 day and was never bored from the stories, anecdotes, and life lessons Dratch tells.
I wanted to keep listening. A tearful passage or two. A couple more that made me laugh out loud and more still that brought a smile.As someone who had her first (and only) child at 41, there was definitely some things I could relate to. By the time the book is over you feel like she's your friend -- or you'd like her to be.
I happened to stumble upon this book by accident because I had read Tina Fey's Bossy Pants. I loved this book. Well written, funny, and honest. I was a fan of Rachel's when she was on SNL, and I'm a fan of hers all over again! Also, I actually found her voice easy to listen to.
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.
