I thought the story was fascinating and well-written and would have given it more than 3 stars, but I found it so difficult to tolerate the narrator for Elyse that I almost didn't finish the book. She had a way of emphasizing words that made her sound on the verge of hysteria much of the time, and her frequent sniffing as she read was distracting and irritating. I will definitely avoid buying another book read by this narrator.
This book is everything that Tina Fey is - smart, witty, easy to relate to. I loved hearing her narrate and found her story very compelling. I found myself having to repeat out loud half of the sentences because they were so funny and I wanted to try and remember them. This book was a real treat.
The writing is overly dramatic and forced. The story is dull and full of cliches. Save your money.
