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.

    I listened to this book while doing laundry, cleaning house and going to the gym. I kept giggling out loud. My husband never could figure out what I was up to.

    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!

    "One notch less than funny/One notch above boring."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I thought it would be funnier-- good for a few chuckles.


    Would you recommend Bossypants to your friends? Why or why not?

    If my friend had nothing better to do, then why not? Listening to that fly buzzing around in your room won't make you chuckle, but this audiobook will.


    Which character – as performed by Tina Fey – was your favorite?

    Tine Fey's performance is wasted here. She is a great reader but here stories lack pizzazz.


    What else would you have wanted to know about Tina Fey’s life?

    I wish here life was funnier.


    Any additional comments?

    If you love Tina Fey you will love her audiobook. But if you love to laugh, I mean really love to laugh, do not listen to this book. But if you love to chuckle, give it whirl.

    "Laugh Your Pants Off"

    First of all, I just love Tina Fey. So if you're not a big fan, don't read it. If you are a fan, or are sort of a fan, or would like to be a fan, then READ IT! Better yet, listen to it via Audible because Tina Fey narrates it. This book is laugh out loud funny and the humor is only accentuated by Tina. By having the author read the book, you experience the story just as she intended. Her inflection of voice and tone are done brilliantly. It's several hours of Tina at her finest. Probably the best memoir I've read. And by probably, I mean it is the best memoir I've read. If you have even the smallest of senses of humor, you'll be glad you purchased this book.

    "great book"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    It was so fun to hear Tina Fey tell her own story...it made me feel like she is just so normal (which she is...). She was funny, of course, but also not afraid to tell everyone the bad parts of her life and her insecurities.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    real-life stories about things we already knew something about!
