I expected a typical...my life in Hollywood story. what I got was, my life as a woman of a particular age story who happened to be famous. fresh and funny this book was a delight!
The content is way below my expectations for this very talented performer. The listener is flooded with her many life disappointments and rejections by way of humor. No doubt strength and insight must have been an outcome yet, the delivery of her story through foul language lends no path for that to emerge.
Listening until I couldn't anymore left me very unsettled.
It was extremely difficult to listen to this. I enjoyed Tina Fey's and Amy Poehler's books which were the products of critical reflection of life events and circumstances that made them who they are today. This book was just senseless whining about trivial problems. Only buy this if you worship Rachel Dratch
One of my favorites audiobooks. It's personable, down to earth, a little Hollywood, and a lot of fun. I prefer her audiobook to that of Poehler and Fey, I think hers was just more entertaining.
The real highlight was to hear her reading it, really brings a new dimension to her book.
if you're looking to laugh out loud, this book is not for you. this is not like Bossy Pants, which is not bad, just a comparison. if you are a Rachel fan and want to know about her life, this book is for you. Rachel reads this book perfectly. her voice is so nice I could probably listen to her read anything.
I really enjoy real life comedy. This book was laugh out lid funny and surprisingly honest and touching at times. Usually I avoid books read by the author but this felt more natural as if she was just telling stories at the bar.
I really enjoyed her sharing this part of her life! I am so happy for her that she got her baby after all. We often forget the characters we love have a real life away from the cameras.
