    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Story

    I was looking forward to this book because I love 30 Rock but I was kind of disappointed by it overall. I thought Tina Fey did an all right job of relaying her story but I felt the book had too much of an agenda. I expected a funny account of her life and she did tell a few funny stories but the general tone of the book seemed on the negative side to me. If you are looking for a book about Tina Fey's life with a few funny stories incorporated then this book is just fine. If you are looking for a really funny book written by a very funny comedian then check out the Michael McIntyre book Life and Laughing. Even if you aren't familiar with him as a comedian the book is hilarious and he does a very good job narrating.

    Once upon a time, a teenaged Kate Winslet (The Reader, Titanic, Revolutionary Road) received a gift that would leave a lasting impression: a copy of Emile Zola’s classic Thérèse Raquin. Six Academy Award nominations and one Best Actress award later, she steps behind the microphone to perform this haunting classic of passion and disaster.

    Story

    Therese Raquin has to be one of the worst books I have ever read or listened to. I contemplated, on many, many occasions, not completing the book at all. Emile Zola's prose was repetitious and the characters (all of them) were completely unlikable. Not even Kate Winslet's lovely voice could save this story for me. I heard the words lugubrious, brute, sanguine, repose, damp and egotism so many times that I kept wishing I could have offered the author a thesaurus at the time it was written. The story itself was just as bad as the prose. The unlikable characters and the unbelievable ways they interacted with each other left me desperate for the book to finish. Sentences contradicted themselves from one to the next and it seemed that months had gone by in the story when it had only been days or hours. This book was truly awful. If you want to hear Kate Winslet's voice do yourself a favour and rent one of her movies.
