    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....

    "HILARIOUS!"

    Her description of her life from awkward teen to awkward adult is pretty much a replica of my life, well except for the fame and success part. Loved it! Very entertaining!

    Set in New York City in 1938, Rules of Civility tells the story of a watershed year in the life of an uncompromising 25-year-old named Katey Kontent. Armed with little more than a formidable intellect, a bracing wit, and her own brand of cool nerve, Katey embarks on a journey from a Wall Street secretarial pool through the upper echelons of New York society in search of a brighter future.

    Story

    This book took me a away to the 1930's and held me there breathless until the final minutes. This was one of THE best listens yet. The ending left me tearful AND hopeful for the characters. My ONLY regret is that it ended!

  • Crazy Salad and Scribble, Scribble: Some Things About Women and Notes on Media

    This edition brings together some of Ephron’s most famous writing on a generation of women (and men) who helped shape the way we live now, and on events ranging from the Watergate scandal to the Pillsbury Bake-Off. In these sharp, hilariously entertaining, and vividly observed pieces, Ephron illuminates an era with wicked honesty and insight. From the famous "A Few Words About Breasts" to important pieces on her time working for the New York Post and Gourmet Magazine, these essays show Ephron at her very best.

    I LOVE Nora Ephron but if you're expecting to hear one of her quirky stories to entertain you and make you laugh then you'll need to look elsewhere. This was terribly boring. Sorry!

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

    Story

    I'm pretty picky and find it hard to find long listens that hold my attention BUT that was before 'The Night Circus'. I literally could NOT stop listening until the very last words of this audio book. Its SO different from anything I usually like to read. I'm not into Harry Potter or any other 'fantasy' genre but this really drew me in and kept my attention. VERY entertaining!

    The time is 1933, the place, Berlin, when William E. Dodd becomes America’s first ambassador to Hitler’s Germany in a year that proved to be a turning point in history. A mild-mannered professor from Chicago, Dodd brings along his wife, son, and flamboyant daughter, Martha. At first Martha is entranced by the parties and pomp, and the handsome young men of the Third Reich with their infectious enthusiasm for restoring Germany to a position of world prominence. Enamored of the “New Germany,” she has one affair after another....

    Patrick says: "compelling father-daughter story"
    "slow"
    Overall

    I found it very slow to produce any information of interest. The details were drawn out in FAR too much detail. I found it hard to follow because I couldn't stay "tuned in" because of the attention to detail. Sorry, never got around to finishing the audio book.
