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.
Rachel Dratch's story is interesting and the behind the scenes information about SNL and other comedians is fun to hear about. But being a comedian I was expecting alot more hilarity. I laughed out loud a few times but that was it. The hardest part for me was the break neck pace at which she narrated. I wanted to yell at her to SLOW DOWN! It was so fast in some places that I think it killed some of the comedy. I think you will really like this book if you are a big Rachel fan or you are in the business yourself. But otherwise I was disappointed with it.
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 like to listen to adventure stories and funny stories. I have a real preference for travel tales and sometimes even enjoy a good mystery. I love fiction, but also like to learn facts. I like all kinds of stories. Follow me, if you do too!
it's not that funny. I found Rachel to be somewhat whiney - I mean, after all - we all have problems and challenges in life. The trick is to not take ourselves too seriously and I thought this book was going to more light-hearted than it was.
Not use the term "bull dyke" - I mean, really Rachel, the 60's are over and they want their hurtful terminology back. I'm not suggesting you need to be politically correct all the time, but "bull dyke"? Really? you're a comedian and an entertainer, not a grizzled veteran of the Vice Squad!
Her performance wasn't bad, but it really didn't add much to the story. Really, i don't think anyone else would want their name associated with this gig!
A bit of anger and definite disappointment.
Don't bother getting this unless you're an overpaid entertainer who likes to whine and call other people names.
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. :)
