    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....

    Overall

    I laughed while I walked, gardened, cooked dinner and waited in lines (many people assumed I was insane). Tina Fey is brilliant but so normal; could totally related to much of her life and her reactions to the funny things that happened in her. Have passed this on to my husband (who laughed as hard as I did) and to several friends who now want to give it their friends. Tina Fey's reading the book with her breathy little asides are what make the audio book particularily great.

    This touching and uproarious novel by author Paul Murray made everyone’s best fiction of 2010 lists, including The Washington Post, Financial Times, Village Voice, and others. Why Skippy dies and what happens next is the mystery that links the boys of Dublin’s Seabrook College (Ruprecht Van Doren, the overweight genius obsessed with string theory; Carl, the teenager drug dealer and borderline psychotic; Philip Kilfether, the basketball-playing midget) to their parents and teachers in ways that no one could have imagined.

    Story

    Not only do I feel sorry for the people who read this book on paper (concurring w/another reviewer) I feel sorry for those who did not stay with it. Although hard to listen to at times (violence and sex wise) for me it all worked-I loved all the readers and thought the voices were exceptonal (Mario was one of my favorites). I felt like I was watching a movie (and happy to hear they are making or have made one already) about the book. There's a reason this book won all the awards that it did. I loved it. Shout out to Anne Kingman from BOTNS for raving about it months ago on the podcast. Thanks Anne!
