It was a long book, which I think must have been done strategically to emphasize the length of the trail. It's one of those books you think you have totally figured out until the end.
The audio version of Bossypants is much better than print version, because Tina is actually narrating the text. She talks like she is having a conversation with you. I am not much of an autobiography reader, so I was hesitant. However, the entire book is hilarious and engaging. I listened to the entire book in one sitting, I could not walk away!
I felt like this book was very well written. I went into the book knowing nothing about the story, and was amazed how well it is crafted. This really showed me a different kind of life that I have never been properly exposed to. There are so many horrific parts in the book that enraged me, and made me grateful for the day and age we live in now. Truly an enlightening book. Bravo.
I think the part when Six is shipped from home, and makes such a name for himself is the most memorable for me. I thought it was very ironic that he was curing people, giving them life, when he was so depressed and lifeless himself. Also near the end of the book Hattie refers to Six as "lost", that he was going to be a troubled soul forever. This was sad to me, because I feel like nobody is lost, with the right support anybody can get better.
This narrator was perfect for this book, because she brought the characters to life with the hint of accent.
