I've always found Tina Fey peripherally funny, the same way I do most recent SNL alums. However, Bossypants clearly divides comedians like Fey from those who rely more on comedic timing.
What's most interesting about Bossypants is that I felt it revealed Fey as an observational comedian - and someone you believe you could be friends with IF ONLY SHE MET ME IN REAL LIFE.
I love that Fey is clearly so intelligent and funny, but it's tempered by a believable humbleness and awkwardness.
I don't laugh out loud. Ever. My co-workers had to ask me what I was listening to on more than one occasion.
Yes. I would listen again much for the same reason one would listen to anything again - go absorb more the second time. The text was so laden with facts and events that it would be worth a second listen.
I think that the looks into executive meetings between multiple food companies were most enticing and informative.
This is a nonfiction text.
The Illusion of Choice.
I think that this was time well-spent simply because, as a reader, you develop an emotional attachment to the characters in The Hunger Games. You want to know what happens to those you labored over with worry while they were in the arena.
Current Fans: Of Course!
Those Who Felt Indifferent About The Hunger Games: Nope,
The ability to enjoy the story hands-free. Otherwise, I honestly by enjoyed my own in-head narration more.
Samuel. L. Jackson.
What parent doesn't have the thoughts?
Is this a real question? The narrator.
I would recommend this title to any current Elizabeth Strout fans. I feel one must either have a) an open mind, or b) an existing appreciation for Strout's heavy exposition.
I love the painful believability of the characters.
Patient. Impassioned. Believable.
The Sins of the Mother
Performance: I was irritated almost the entire time spent listening.
Paper Copy: Yes.
Audible Performance: No.
The "dramatic" scenes were disingenuous thanks to the performer's daytime soap opera acting skills. I was horrified at what felt so much like a mockery. Any talent behind the text was robbed.
A movie? Sure. But more of a Lifetime movie than a blockbuster hit. Candice Cameron-Bure would be an interesting choice, but I may think that simply because I can't recall the names of other Lifetime movie actresses.
