    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....

    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I gave the book 2 stars because, as much as I love Tine Fey, her narration was disappointing. Her reading sounded rushed, humorless, and overall negative- in a self-deprecating sort of way. I think I would have enjoyed the book much better had I read it instead of listening to it.

    Story

    FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one.

    Janels says: "Evanovich, no longer trite--entertaining romp"
    "Scott Brick as narrator? Give me a break!"

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

    I bought this book hoping for an enjoyable listening experience. The story is good, but the choice the narrator is horrible. I've enjoyed many books read by Brick, but this is not definitely one of them.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Scott Brick excels at narrating, but not in this case. Perhaps I am spoiled by Lorelei King's performance of Evanovich's books, but Brick falls short in bringing to life Kate's personality. Listening to him I only get angry, strained vibes. Kate is half of the book and Brick is not the best with female characters. I'd much rather read the print version and get to know the real chocolate-addicted Kate!
