I love Tina Fey and was really looking forward to listening to her book - I was NOT disappointed! "Bossypants" is smart, entertaining, and absolutely hilarious! That fact that Tina Fey narrates the book only adds to the effect! Loved it!
I'd compare it to "And One Last Thing" also written by Molly Harper and narrated by Amanda Ronconi. Both books feature Harper's expert wit and Ronconi's ability to bring the characters to life. Both stories feature a strong female lead with a romantic struggle. If you haven't listened to "And One Last Thing", I highly recommend it!
Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi are my favourite author/narrator combo!
Yes, probably. The story is fun and different than the usual vampire fiction.
The voices were fine - differentiating wasn't difficult, but I did find there were a lot more extraneous noises (page turning, heavy breathing, etc) than are typical in most audiobook recordings.
I ended up downloading the other two books in the series, so yes.
I personally didn't have the issues with the narrator that other listeners did, though I understand where they're coming from. The e-mail sections are quite trying at points since each time the "to, from, subject, time" are read, and there can be quite a string of emails in a row.
I'd say yes ... though, this is probably my least favourite of the trilogy.
Remember, Audible now offers the return feature, so if you've been debating the download - just do it. You can always exchange it, and you might like it - everyone has to judge for themselves.
Having read the reviews for this audiobook, I was hesitant to download it at first with all the negative feedback. After hearing about the books from a number of people, I bit the bullet and downloaded "Fifty Shades Of Grey". I can totally see where the other listeners are coming from ... I too think it might be a good idea for the author to consult a thesaurus in the future. That said, I did get hooked, and I have downloaded the rest of the trilogy.
My thoughts: if you're expecting a great classic novel, you will be disappointed. If you're looking for entertainment or a guilty pleasure, I say give it a try.
Molly Harper is one of my favourite authors right now, so this is near the top of my list.
Excellent, as always ... she's perfectly suited to Molly Harper's writing.
Amanda Ronconi is the perfect person to bring Molly Harper's stories to life. She really captures the wit and humor in writing.
Absolutely! This is one of my favourite series at the moment!
Love, love, love this series!
It's a fun and refreshing take on the vampire themed novel craze!
This is only book one ... I definitely recommend listening to the other three books in the series!
This series is one of my current favourites!
Amanda Ronconi is a perfect narrator for Molly Harper's writing; expertly voicing Jane and making her character come alive!
