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 love audio books, fiction and nonfiction. I seem to be drawn to the Scandinavian writers and their narrators.

    "Not to be listened to in a library"

    My roommate had to ask me not to listen when she was trying to sleep - she couldn't get over all the giggling and belly laughs. Tina Fey writes such intelligent comedy and her delivery is perfect. If laughing adds minutes to your longevity, I am a couple of years ahead after reading this thoroughly entertaining book.

    "Tina Fey is Hilarious!"
    What made the experience of listening to Bossypants the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed Tina Fey reading the book herself. It really added a lot to the content.


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

    No.

    This book really drew you in and made you want to listen to it. I listened as I commuted to and from work and couldn't wait to get back in my car to listen more.

    What made the experience of listening to Bossypants the most enjoyable?

    Tina made the audiobook for sure. If it were read by anyone else it would have NOT worked.


    Any additional comments?

    Wish the book were a little longer... LOL

    Story
    "Totally Enjoyable, Honest & Funny!"
    What made the experience of listening to Bossypants the most enjoyable?

    I love Tina Fey's ability to be funny while being brutally honest on so many real life issues, from crazy vacations to psycho breastfeeding moms! She put into words what most of us really think in our heads but don't want to say out loud!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Mostly her sense of humor about life. The story had a good flow and was easy to follow.


    What three words best describe Tina Fey’s voice?

    kind, smooth, easy


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The parts about her dad.


    Any additional comments?

    I guess just to say that at the beginning of the story it felt like you could tell she was a bit nervous narrating a book and her flow was a bit awkward. I can only imagine how hard it is to do something like that and I felt myself empathizing with her. As the story went on her you could feel her getting more comfortable with ability and her flow got very easy. As I said in my title totally enjoyable!

    Story
    "Tina Fey is a great Narrator"
    Would you try another book from Tina Fey and/or Tina Fey?

    While I expected the book to be a lot funnier, Tina Fey does a great job of narrating the book. It provided me a few chuckles along the way, but I mostly enjoyed listening to her do the different voices. I would listen to another book by Tina Fey as long as she does the narrating.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The entire book kept my attention. You can tell Tina is passionate about her family and career.


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

    I like the story or Tina being on the cruise ship and also hearing her describe the relationship with her husband. I also liked hearing Tina Fey's dating stories.


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

    The book gives a good overview of Tina Fey's life and how she came into the business.


    Any additional comments?

    In my opinion, the book ended almost abruptly. Not sure what I was expecting, but it seems like the book needed a bit more closure.

    "Very funny, especially if you watch her shows"
    Would you listen to Bossypants again? Why?

    I laughed out loud many times during this book, but there are a few sections of the book that go into detail about characters from SNL and 30 Rock that probably would not be as funny if you do not watch those shows.

    "Seriously, what's not to love?"

    As a Tina Fey fan, I had high hopes for the book, and it completely delivered Not just a collection of anecdotes, but the story of Tina's childhood and road to the successful woman she is today. Of course her truthful, hysterical, friend in my head method of narrating the book is the deal breaker. I love how this was unexpectedly a girl power book while never meaning to be. Tina Fey, newly elevated BEST friend in my head, I love you.
