I didn't know much about the author Rachel Dratch when I choose to listen to this audio book. I'm a fan of her colleagues Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and I liked her characters in season 1 of 30 Rock. I went in with zero expectations and I left happy. Dratch's writing is funny and honest and this book tells a cohesive stories about her life that all eloquently connect. If you've read Bossypants and Yes Please, you can expect a very similar experience with this book.
My only complaint is that I feel like I need to read more by Dratch to completely get who she is as a person. Hopefully there are more books to come.
Interesting book. What happened to Rachel Dratch after her years on SNL is what makes this book great. Her attempts to find more work, fulfilling or otherwise. Her frustration when facing constant type casting and her late in life surprise pregnancy make this book fun, light and easy to listen to.
Everyone should pay careful attention to Dratch's birth control advice. Learn people learn.
I give this book two thumbs up and recommend it without hesitation.
I've listened to Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling's audiobooks and Rachel's is surprisingly my favorites. When i listen to books I'm usually doing chores around the house, and imagine I'm "hanging out" with the authors. Rachel was by far the most fun to hang out with.
It was funny, charming, honest but light. I would recommend reading it to any of my friends...maybe not as funny as I expected it would be but definitely kept me interested in hearing her story.
This audiobook was my favourite so far (better than Yes please and Bpssypants!).
Rachel's story is funny, surprising and interesting and she tells it with wit and humour. I really just wanted to be her best friend by the end!
As a big fan of Miss Dratch, i cant imagine it to be inferior with her narration to a print version
just all her skits on SNL
Just fantastic and LOL funny throughout. Ya killed it girl!
She's just so likeable.
This is one of my all-time favorites. It's a sweet story and is done really well.
I fascinated by the talent of Rachel Dratch!! Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and decided to read , and/ or listen to their autobiographies. I just finished Rachel Dratches and although to pick a favorite out of the three mega talented women here would be impossible! They all made me laugh and cry just the right amount without being manipulated . Story wise, RD's ending was just so wonderful !! I love her!! You will too!!
