Bossypants

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.

    "Hi-Larious"

    Easily the funniest and fun-nest book I've heard or read. Minimum review needs to be 15 words, so here's 20.

    "Funniest, most helpful (non) self-help book ever"

    Tina Fey is destined to be my heroin. (Not the Opium of my audiobook listening addiction, but rather the Heroine, as in Hero, of my psychiatric practice). She makes ordinary seem astonishing. And Ms. Fey crafts astonishing amazing talent as ordinary.
    She transcends generations – giving hope where there was none. Listening to this book is the most fun you can have with your adult child.
    Bossypants is the funniest, and freakishly subtle, (non) self-help book ever narrated.

    Ken

    "Over Rated... READ THIS!!!"

    This book was definitely writen for woman and guy men. I used to like Tina Fey much more than I do now that I've listened to this book. I thought she was smart, funny and above all, open minded! However, "Bossy Pants" provides a window into a bitter, angry, selfish and slightly racist person (closet racist) who suddenly has enough power to get back at people who were mean to her in highschool. I get her humor, I really do. Its the main reason I bought the book to begin with but I was unaware of the caty, bitchy woman hidden behind the vale of smart comedy. In my eyes she went from exeptional (but modest) to common and over rated. I'm disappointed not in the quality of the book, witch really was funny for the most part, but in the the author. I wanted so much to like the book but instead, it made me take her off the comic pedistal...

    "Funny, but..."

    The book is funny, but unlike others here I didn't laugh so hard that I drove through a construction zone. I don't mind rough language in recorded books, but in a book with such an emphasis on her family, I thought the potty-mouth was out of place.

    "Terrible"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I didn't find it funny at all. In fact I didn't make it to the middle of the book.

    "Even a Guy Can Listen to This!"
    What made the experience of listening to Bossypants the most enjoyable?

    Really funny stuff. Many sections have inside female jokes, but they are tastefully conveyed by Fey so you won't get to embarressed


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bossypants?

    Fey's memories of the SNL years are priceless. She did a nice job recollecting Palin's interaction with her as well


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

    She does a decent job of herself. Really.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    It's a Date Night flick. Honest.

    "Paper version must lack punctuation"

    Tina Fey reads this book as though it lacks a single comma, period, or paragraph break and does so at full speed. Although this presentation might work well for the dialog of a character in a sit com, it drives you crazy as an audible book lover. I am surprised by the number of folks who had commented that she'd been a good choice as the narrator. And, at half way through the book, I have yet to experience one chuckle.

    "Great fun!"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Tina Fey again?

    I thought Tina Fey was terrific and I enjoyed every minute of her story.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    There is nothing better than having an author read their own book. Tina Fey does a terrific job of telling her own story. I enjoyed every minute of this book!


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a lot of fun. I laughed out loud through the entire book!
