This audiobook seemed very similar to Tina Fey's Bossypants for the first half both in writing and in narration then seemed to find its own voice. Rachel is funny and down to earth and I appreciated her honesty and quick wit. It stays pretty light and is an easy, entertaining listen. Would recommend.
I like Rachel and her book is a candid memoir with a happy ending. Great for anyone who can appreciate how life takes you where it will, despite what one may expect.
...then it got so trite and boring. Thank goodness that was the very end of the book.
I found myself falling completely in love with Rachel Dratch and can understand why star fuckers around the global would want to get close to her! thank God she recorded this as an audiobook because I too do not read.
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.
