It surprised me because I knew it was going to be funny but I didn't realize how touching it would be.
I wish more books were written this well. Also the audiobook version was great because it heightened the comedy.
she achieved it very well.
nothing. great job.
can't wait for the next one.
I am sooooo upset that I wasted my points on this book. It WAS NOT funny at all, it was actually boring. If I were reading it I would have tossed it in the trash. DO NOT BUY IT.
i don't know. I'll have to give it some thought...obviously more thought than I gave this selection.
It wasn't the performance so much as it was the subject matter. My life is more interesting and funny than hers.
Nope.... that about covers it.
It was funny and good to hear about Rachel's life and the funny things along the way.
When she got pregnant and had her baby.
She narrated the book.
Interesting to learn what happens to actors/comedians after their Saturday Night Live career is over. Rachel Dratch is pretty funny, and tells good stories.
It's an autobiography.
There were some funny stories about her dating life before she got pregnant.
It's fairly easy to sit to, and so I was able to finish the book in two days. It goes by quick.
This book might not be for everyone. But I enjoyed it. Rachel Dratch is not often in the top 10 lists of SNL actors, but she has a story to tell.
Addicted to Audible.
I liked the quirkiness of the author and the descriptions of herself.
When she find out she is pregnant!
The book revolves around her dating life and career. I like the fact that she came from the same comedy circle as tina fey, amy poehler, etc. She was great at SNL - Debbie Downer.
Well she really did not differentiate the characters but it was alright and it was entertaining.
There is not a lot of raw material to make it as tv series...
The honesty in the book is great. Rachel Dratch has a self depreciating style that doesn't make you feel bad for her or question her confidence. She also answers a question I had been wondering...."What have you been doing since SNL?"
Tina Fey's Bossypants. Rachel talks about Tina in the book & they're friends.
Phone calls from her agent reenacted.
I listened to this book on the train & had to keep myself from cracking up out loud. At times I had to pause the book so I could enjoy a good laugh without missing anything!
It's fun to spend time with this gal, and learn about her creative journey, her dating adventures. Unsentimental and funny, a valuable perspective on reaching mid-age, mid-career, being baby-with and baby-without.
I felt like Rachael Dratch was a little whiney. The most interesting part was where she was describing her days with Second City (the try, try again section) as most of us can identify with not getting what we want right off the bat of having a great idea. Other than that, she seemed fixated on how she was type cast by the Saturday Night Live aristocracy and how Hollywood followed that "type". I personally never liked the "Debbie Downer" franchise of Dratch's, that she brings up as a sample of success at SNL. I found it too irritating to be really funny. But calling this skit to mind seemed apt as it matched the tenor of this memoir. Sorry Rachael! I wanted to like this more than I did. Wasn't there anything funny about sitting around back stage at SNL?
Won't be one.
