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.

    Story
    "I <3 Tina Fey"
    If you could sum up Bossypants in three words, what would they be?

    How could you not love this woman? She's super smart, she's sassy, and she's hilarious. This book was very enjoyable. She tells funny stories about her life and gives advice for women (people in general) that would like to get into media and entertainment... actually, she gives great career advice in general.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bossypants?

    Best line “Some people say, “Never let them see you cry.” I say, if you’re so mad you could just cry, then cry. It terrifies everyone.”


    What about Tina Fey’s performance did you like?

    She's very expressive!

    Any additional comments?

    i;ve got this book as a gift from my boyfriend who i must add is a huge fan of Tina Fey... i knew she was on SNL and 30th rock but mmmmmm i wasnt that much of a follower by the time i started listening to this...
    and then it happen¡... i coudnt put it down!.. and the fact that is her the one telling you its amazing, the book is great, and although im still catching up with 30th Rock i became a total fan of her!... she;s quite a bitch (in the good way) and i admire her!...
    the audiobook is way easy to listen, and she not only there in a studio reading her own words like other authors are.. she;s living it and thats a plus!..

    I'm an avid reader who now listens to books on tape. I'm a bit late to the game but enjoying the hands free reading.

    "Rush and Download This Now!"
    What made the experience of listening to Bossypants the most enjoyable?

    What a wonderful way to spend 7 hours (or however long it was). Tina Fey wrote an amazing book, read with her personality and made it my best listen from Audible.com. I laughed and stayed with her the entire time. I couldn't drift away or I'd miss something good. I even had to rewind a few times to be sure I didn't mishear something. Incredible book worth listening to again and again.

    I listened to this book during my train rides to and from work, and more than once laughed out loud in spite of my best efforts to contain myself. Tina Fey is so funny, and this book is pretty awesome. It was great to get some insights into her career and success. Highly recommend!

    "INCREDIBLE LAUGH OUT LOUD"

    I have been a "sidelines" fan of Tina Fey - not knowing much about her and only really seeing her occasionally on SNL but knowing she was really funny. I could not stop listening to this book! Not only is it hilarious, but, being narrated by Tina Fey made it even better. This is a MUST listen!

    What did you love best about Bossypants?

    Love the sarcastic humour that just never seems to end.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great to hear the background of SNL and 30 Rock.


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

    Having Tina Fey narrate the book is the only way this book could have been delivered.

    Story
    "enjoyable light fare"
    Where does Bossypants rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's a slight book; well done. Not fair to compare it to something like the Story of Philosophy.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Tina Fey is tremendously likable


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

    no, other than on TV


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

    It's a book you CAN listen to in one sitting; short.


    Any additional comments?

    Listening to this book is like sitting in a cafe with Tina, having some coffee together, and just chatting about life.

    "Tina Fey is a hilarious, brilliant nerd!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bossypants to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed both the audiobook and the print version of this book; however, there are added bonuses to hearing Tina Fey read this book. She is not only a fantastic writer, but a talented actress who is a great joy to listen to. On the other hand, the printed book has pictures that go along with certain chapters that I was unable to find for the audiobook --she would say, "Check the PDF," but I didn't know how to access that.


    What other book might you compare Bossypants to and why?

    I am currently on a female-comedian-auto-bio kick, so I would compare this book to Mindy Kaling's, "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?" and Rachel Dratch's "Girl Walks Into a Bar." Of the three, "Bossypants" is my obvious favorite.
