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....

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Some of the stories were ok, but she sounded like she was reading somebody else's life off a cue card the entire time. I couldn't even get through the audiobook.

Rhett Butler's People is the long-awaited novel that parallels the great American novel Gone with the Wind. Twelve years in the making, Rhett Butler's People marks a major and historic cultural event for millions of Gone with the Wind readers, complementing and adding new dimensions to its timeless story.

I was really lookikng forward to this book, but the reader is honestly the worst I've ever heard and it ruins the mediocre story. The accents are totally off and non-consistent- he'll switch accents and dialects in the same speech by the same person! Very disappointing- I'd never listen to another of his readings.

The story itself is, as I said, mediocre. It's a lot of Scarlette and Melody, and some of it contradicts Gone With the Wind. A few parts of it are pretty good but, again, are ruined by the reader. I've always finished books, but I'm not sure I'm going to be able to make it through this one.

Overall, save your time and money for a different story.
