I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.
I loved the beginning of the book, but it lost a little bit of steam towards the end. The struggling comedienne stuff was pretty funny and she is a terrific narrator. The starting family stuff was less funny, but sweet and enjoyable.
I would recommend it to every girl that feels really aware in the dating world. It really happens to every girl. So its good to know that you are not alone there, that there is someone else feeling the same insecurities, it don`t matter if it`s a famous person.
The letter that Rachel received from her boyfriend`s brother was great, so thoughtful.
Fey's was funnier.
My apologies to Miss Dratch but I just couldn't love this book. While she offered several wonderful anecdotes, none of them make this book memorable. I think if she might have expanded more on either life as a comedienne or as a 40 year old mom, it would have been better than trying to cover both parts of her life in one book.
Yes, in addition to being witty her tales of being an actress without looking like a 10 is heartfelt and helpful.
How real and honest she was without it being a whoa is me tale.
I laughed and I cried.
Well I always liked Rachel based on her performances, I was hoping this would be a funny casual listen but this is a total whine fest about how much her life sucks.
Still slogging through, couple hours to go
Worth avoiding unless your life sucks more than hers
Found myself LOLing often and hard. Really funny and engrossing. Listened to it from start to finish in one shot - couldn't stop.
She plays herself only, but oh so well.
Yes, I think Rachel is the kind of person you'd like to be friends with, very sweet with a humorous outlook. Her SNL stories I found most interesting as that's where I knew her from.
I always like listening to the authors read their own memoirs, this adds something special for the listener.
I love listening to books and I despise bad narrators.
I took a chance on this book and it paid off. I loved her on SNL, but I liked getting to know who she really is. I am stunned that she is not constantly working in television. She plays such great, memorable characters and she's not afraid to ugly up for a laugh. I think she's a comedic gem and I hope she finds a new television niche. I am rooting for Rachel!
Engaging. I found myself wanting to know more and more. Easy and enjoyable to listen too. It feels very honest. She also seems very modest, considering all that she has accomplished. But, also relatable, having had similar issues and challenges. Mix of happy and sad with wit/humor.
This book is by far the funniest audiobook I've heard so far. Loved it. Rachel Dratch is amazingly honest and hilarious.
