She thinks she is funnier than she is, which makes for a kind of painful listening experience.
Her insights and observations into the world are surprisingly dull, and now that she has talked about showbiz and SNL, there is nothing else I care to hear her opinion about. Tina Fey: please write 50 more books! I want to hear your thoughts on anything. R.D. does not have the same genius for writing, just some similarities in life experience.
Not quite what I was expecting, but funny none the less! Not sure what made it different from what I thought it would be, but I definitely enjoyed it. Worth the listen if you're eager for a laugh, and very well performed.
Yes, it was lovely. I laughed; I cried. If you are or have been a single woman over 35, this book is a MUST LISTEN. I am a 39 year old college professor who has dedicated her life to her career. Rachel taps into the angst and worries about being single and childless and ambitious in a funny and very real way. I find there are few books or stories out there for women in this age range that aren't trite or humiliating. We are bombarded with bad advice and Rachel taps into this poignantly and honestly with such a great sense of humor. Thank you, Rachel!
Rachel's humor and honesty.
I love Rachel Dratch. For books on tape, I prefer memoirs read by the author and Rachel has a wonderful voice and brought her story to life. The timing and pacing were terrific. The "voices" she used to move the story along were probably better than reading the book myself. I bought this book for several of my friends, but I have to say, if they could listen to it they would probably enjoy it more.
I listen to books as I go for walks. But she motivated me to walk A LOT!
Best word for this book is cute. It had some laugh out loud moments and Rachel Dratch did a good job on the reading. The story overall wasn't real cohesive, but that didn't take away from the humor.
It didn't change my life, but it was definately worth buying and listening too. If you need something to get your mind off of a long flight or tedious commute, this will do the trick.
This was the best book! And hearing it in Rachel's voice made it so much better. The "Tell Tale Vibrator" had me laughing so hard I was crying. Rachel, I'm anxiously awaiting your next book.
Yes. I didn't want it to end.
Yes-It was very entertaining and easy to listen to. Plus there were lots of little moments I am sure I missed enjoying fully!
Talking about what it's like to be single and childless as a women then shockingly becoming pregnant.
Rachel Dratch herself or her agent
This is my life
Some editing of repeated phrases. Better organization of the story as a whole.
Her performance was good.
Just the multiple repeated ideas and phrases.
I do love her work.
Funny. Real. Smart.
I loved the sound effects and the random music she played to accompany certain parts of the book.
I loved how honest this book is and how relatable all her life stories and dating situations are.
I guess it comes close to Tina Fey's, Bossy Pants. It speaks a lot of working on SNL and the rise and fall of a comedian, and just how hard it is to make it in show biz.
I've only ever seen her on SNL, and liked her there.
It's a fun read. She's real and and all her stories are very relatable.
I did like the audiobook and love that you can list to the actual author doing the reading, but it is not the best of all autobiographies I have listened to.
I found that there are some parts that seem like it was mimicking Tina Fey's Bossy Pants. I don't know if this is true but I probably feel this way because it came out a year later.
Funny, Dorky, Quirky
No, I listen for an hour each way on my daily commute.
I liked it, and I was glad to hear about what happened to Rachel Dratch after SNL but it just wasn't my favorite audiobook of all time.
