Very creative. Despite the flat tone of the author...I forgive him because he is the author, the story moved and kept my interest. At times I found myself having to put it down because it left me so uneasy. Who's a liar, who's telling the truth? Imagined or real, the events are disturbing. I couldn't put it down yet I was happy it was over.
I am so sad that I have finished this book. Every day as I read this book, I could not WAIT to get into my car for some more alone time with Tina. I have listened to many many audio books. This is the first time that I ever felt that the audiobook MUST be better than reading the hardcopy. I was so excited to share this book with family and friends that I went out and bought several hardcovers to pass around. When I read through the hardcopy, so many of Tina's clever jokes and turns of phrase were lost when I was left to my own devices. Her intonations and improv skills come shining through in the reading. The only reason to buy the book (text) is for the pictures, I think. (So I have both!) This is a must read for anyone who needs a laugh or just wants to laugh. It may be more interesting to women (sorry Tina....that kind of defeats the purpose of many of your premises), but I can't be sure. (My husband put it down after the first few pages. But after he heard me non-stop laughing for three days, he said he is going to give it another whirl. Congratulations Tina Fey. I wish your book had been 10 hours long...but I suppose that would have just increased your stress induced mouth sores. I wouldn't want you to do that just for me.
Wish I could have you for dinner just once!!
This book is fabulous. A great great story with compelling characters. I finished it 3 days ago and I am still thinking about it. The reading could have been improved with a reader who was more of an "actor". It took me a while to stop being bothered that the narrator of the story is an actor, yet the reader couldn't "act".
