Interesting and insightful as expected. The middle sections that any girl in a big city dealing with men with infinite choices was a bit weary, but she parceled it up in cute Rachel bites. The very end of the book was the very best. Loved the meaty feet. I totally felt personally peace with her okayness with an uncertain world and the necessities and privilege of having to be more than just yourself. Thank you Rachel.
I really enjoyed this book. Although the rise to comedy is a bit like the other comedians who wrote books and a bit repetitive, past that I found it a hilarious and honest book about life.
Really enjoyed this audiobook. Rachel's narration was perfectly pitched at every turn. Some moments are quite tender and vulnerable but you never feel sorry for her because of the manner in which she expresses her emotions. A true modern day heroine.
I'm a fan of grilled cheese and am a sucker for a good fantasy or scifi or both story.
I downloaded this book because I read Yes, Please and Bossypants. I was not disappointed. As a single woman in her mid-thirties, I heavily identity with Dratch's story. While I know nothing about being on TV or working in the biz, I felt like she was telling my story in certain areas and think listening to her book would benefit anyone.
did not read print version
Amy Pohler's...as they both detailed their east coat upbringing and early comedy group experiences and then SNL experiences. But what I loved about Rachel's is that she really then went into her personal story and that's what I liked more than Amy's.
I just loved this book because I could relate so much to her as opposed to other comedy memoirist books I've listened to (Amy Pohler, Mindy Kaling, Tina Fey, Sarah Silverman). I really wanted to hear more about how she and her boyfriend-suddenly-turned baby daddy fared after having thier son. Didnt want it to end! Write a follow-up, Rachel!
The beginning was tough. It sounded like the author was just complaining and ungrateful. It almost made me stop listening. It wasn't quite so bad toward the end.
