Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential - Witty, finely-crafted, and meant to be heard, Bossypants is one of my favorite audiobooks of all time. Tina Fey knows how to deliver a good punch-line – and does so hilariously throughout her memoir. Her self-deprecating humor shines through, and this half-memoir, half-stand-up routine left me laughing for all in the subway car to hear. From her days in the Second City comedy troupe, to Saturday Night Live, to Hollywood, Fey's stories and memories will leave you in stitches. —Jess

Publisher's Summary

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 of those dreams come true.

At last, Tina Fey's story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon - from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence.

Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we've all suspected: you're no one until someone calls you bossy.

Includes special, never-before-solicited opinions on breastfeeding, princesses, Photoshop, the electoral process, and Italian rum cake!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Enjoyable listen from Tina Fey"
    Would you listen to Bossypants again? Why?

    Yes. I liked Ms. Fey's delivery and her wry sense of humor. I was pleasantly surprised to find wisdom interwoven with her wit and gained some insight into the world of show business. Ms. Fey advocates for hard work, laughs at herself, and supports the advancement of women in her field without sounding strident or whiny. A very good listen.

    Story
    "Love Her!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bossypants to be better than the print version?

    The audio version of Bossypants is much better than print version, because Tina is actually narrating the text. She talks like she is having a conversation with you. I am not much of an autobiography reader, so I was hesitant. However, the entire book is hilarious and engaging. I listened to the entire book in one sitting, I could not walk away!

    "Not AS funny for guys, but still great!"

    Don't get me wrong!!! I love Tina Fey and am completely happy with this purchase. Only she could deliver it and have it come off as funny as it was! The only problem that I had was that at times it was very clear that it was targeted at women and I felt like I was in a Victoria's Secret waiting for my wife to try something on....no matter how cool you try to play it, you still feel like a creep.
    But, with all that said, I would still recommend this to others...ESPECIALLY women!

    "Great laughter"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Highly recommend when you want to listen to a great story, told by the author. I couldn't stop laughing


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tina Fey herself


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

    Couldn't stop listening. You know it's good when you put the ear plugs in and it follows you around the house until you've finished. Sad when it was over.

    Will be listening to this one at least twice.

    Story
    "Funny, insightful and humble."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely, as long as they're not uptight about cursing or extremely conservative.


    What other book might you compare Bossypants to and why?

    I've never really found a book similar to this. It's kind of like her style of comedy on 30Rock but with reality.


    What does Tina Fey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    ABSOLUTELY.


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

    It made me laugh so hard I literally did a spit-take. In the library. In front of about 40 people.


    Any additional comments?

    Just buy it. It's worth it. I listen to it biking to work or school, shopping etc. It doesn't get old!
