    Anyone who saw an episode of Saturday Night Live between 1999 and 2006 knows Rachel Dratch. She was hilarious! So what happened to her? After a misbegotten part as Jenna on the pilot of 30 Rock, Dratch was only getting offered roles as "Lesbians. Secretaries. Sometimes secretaries who are lesbians." Her career at a low point, Dratch suddenly had time for yoga, dog- sitting, learning Spanish - and dating. After all, what did a forty-something single woman living in New York have to lose?

    What did you like best about Girl Walks into a Bar...? What did you like least?

    The book revolves around her dating life and career. I like the fact that she came from the same comedy circle as tina fey, amy poehler, etc. She was great at SNL - Debbie Downer.


    Did Rachel Dratch do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Well she really did not differentiate the characters but it was alright and it was entertaining.


    Could you see Girl Walks into a Bar... being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    There is not a lot of raw material to make it as tv series...

    Where does If You Ask Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Betty's book ranks 2nd on my audio books that I have listened. Betty is a good narrator


    What did you like best about this story?

    Betty is a very caring person. She loves all human race and the animal kingdom. She is very personable when she talks about a chapter. She makes each chapter memorable and characters seems to be in the same room with her. I personally like her "crush" on Robert Redford...


    Have you listened to any of Betty White’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

  • Just a Guy: Notes from a Blue Collar Life

    Blue Collar Comedy star Bill Engvall is just a guy. He's been one his whole life. He can't help it; he was born that way. And that makes him an expert on the subject. For the record, here's the official definition of a guy: a person who doesn't think before he speaks. He can't. He's not that deep. Because a guy has only three basic needs: eating, sleeping, and sex. That's it. Just a Guy chronicles a lifetime in pursuit of those needs.

    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....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Bossypants to be better than the print version?

    OMG! Yes! Audio edition is a lot better than the book. Narrator, Tina Fey was great! It was almost like I was sitting in the same room with her while she is telling me the story of her life. I could not stop listening to her.


    What other book might you compare Bossypants to and why?

    So far, I have not downloaded a lot of books to compare since I am a first time audible user. I only heard two books so far.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Sarah Palin skit and the part of being a mom.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    OMG! Listening to this book made me LAUGH so hard that I almost rear ended the car in front of me because that I forget I was driving. Let me tell you laughter is the best medicine! Thanks Tina Fey!


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend anyone who is contemplating of buying this audio to purchase it immediately! Its worth listening to it. Just don't LAUGH and DRIVE. I suggest that you download it on your IPOD and do your power walking...it makes it easier to exercise and before you know it, you had walked over 5 miles.

    After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie's bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton's premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it's on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape...or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    First time audible user. I thought listening to this book rather than reading is great! It passes the time when stuck in traffic. Now the book itself was boring. The same storyline...car blowing up, intense emotional feelings between Moreli and Stephanie or Stephanie with Grainger. It was just getting boring. There is no suspense, mystery, funny or storyline.


    Has Notorious Nineteen turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. I will read other genre.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No...the movie they did called Money on #1 series did not do so well either.
