The unoriginal thought. I expected better based on the hype, but as far as I can tell this book is a list of qualities revered by Hugo thinly (very) encased in a description of a person. Although that would be monotonous in itself, Hugo's ideas of what constitute high character and worthy citizenship seem to be those of an arrogant and naive teenager.
No. I've read and enjoyed many other books in this genre. In fact, I was slightly embarrassed never to have read this one. Now I know why.
Fluent, measured, adept.
It probably saved me the ticket price of the movie or show.
I only got through a few hours before giving up, so it may have gotten radically better and I don't wish to dissuade those who have better stamina than I.
Wouldn't know but would expect it to given the narrator.
Chelsea Handler's books in that both are funny and frank explorations of the absurdities of female life. However, Fey's book is much cleaner, more cerebral and less cynical.
As Fey makes fun of herself, it becomes more relatable and funny rather than embarrassing or wince-worthy.
I looked forward to my 45 mile commute just to listen to this book and was disappointed when it was done.
