    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If someone was looking for a great book to read (listen to), no I wouldn't recommend this. The story is beautifully imaginative and descriptive to the point of... having no point. If someone asked me for a great poetry book with an aimless wandering story, I would highly recommend this.


    Has Viriconium turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I'm disappointed by Neil Gaiman's endorsement of this book. Having read everything the man has published and enjoyed most of it, I was very disappointing in this book. It's just not a good


    What does Simon Vance bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Simon Vance is incredible. His


    Could you see Viriconium being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No. Please god no!

    Story
    (13035)

    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

    Loved the book. I'm so glad Tina Fey read her own book. Who better to deliver Tina Fey's words than... Tina Fey. And they are truly fabulous words. She is so honest and funny and "human". I listened to this on a long drive in the car and when I stopped for fuel after three hours of hearing her read the stories of who she is and how she came to be where she is, I had the urge to ask Tina if she wanted anything from the snack shop.... It was as though we had been having a friendly (and extremely one sided) chat for the past few hours.

    Easy going, funny, charming, engaging. It was all good.

    If you're looking for 5 hours of Tina Fey doing stand-up, this isn't it. If instead, you're looking for a humorous romp through her life's high points and low points, moments of triumph and embarrassments, this will keep you entertained.
