    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....

    After listening to Bossypants, I went back to the book to check what I had suspected all through out listening to it.

    Bossypants is read very well. It is engaging, funny, and exactly what we have come to expect from Tina Fey. But it is a book that is difficult to read. Ms. Fey breaks from traditional writing forms so frequently that it is distracting to the reader. This is why you have to listen to it.

    As an audiobook, it is simply great. And I enjoyed every minute of listening to Ms. Fey's humor playing out in this format. If you are thinking about either getting the book or the audiobook, get the audiobook. You won't be disappointed.

    "When I first discovered the grainy picture in my mother’s desk—me as a towheaded two year old sitting in what I remember was a salmon-orange-stained lifeboat—I was overwhelmed by the feeling that the boy in the boat was not waving and laughing at the person snapping the photo as much as he was frantically trying to get the attention of the man I am today. The boy was beckoning me to join him on a voyage through the harrowing straits of memory."

    Story

    If this was a "book" review, I could talk about how Ian Morgan Cron has the ability to turn a phrase better than nearly all of his peers. I could say that he has restored my faith in the genre called memoir with his candid concessions about the genre at the beginning of his book, which are whimsical and hilarious. I could even say his book brought me to tears, in the best possible sense, and made laugh harder than I expected when I first picked it up. But this is an "audiobook" review.

    "Jesus, My Father, the CIA, and Me" is narrated by the author and his narration is a true gift. Sometimes words and meaning are lost in translation. But when an author reads his own words, you can't help but get wrapped up in each detail, each refreshingly odd phrase, each moment that brings you to the brink of an emotional moment. Cron welcomes you into his story with open arms and his voice testifies "to the unfinished business of grace."

    Listen to it slowly. Treasure it. Let it work on you until you hear the parables Cron makes available. And then, listen to it again.
