    Tina Fey s Bossypants was a disappointment I don t know that expecting much from a comedy writer s cash in big font with pictures essay memoirthingis fair, but I ve been a Tina Fey fan since 30 Rock began, ready to trust her literary aspirations, and even to me this book barely scratches onto the two star plateau.What did I expect Well, it s probably easier to explain what I didn t expect I wasn t counting on a sour, muddle

    The best audiobook I ve listened to in a long, long time And that s saying something I ended up picking this up because when I sent up a signal flare on Twitter, it was the most recommended book by far Now I see why 1 The narration was exceptionally good I like autobiography being read by the author, but not all authors are good narrators 2 It s legitimately funny 3 It s legitimately thoughtful and insightful I ll also say that I r

    I honestly cannot remember the last time I laughed this hard reading anything only a Jonathan Tropper novel or a Dave Sedaris collection comes close I finished the other night with wet cheeks from the tears that d escaped my eyes The bed had been shaking I was laughing so hard So what s to love about Bossypants, besides everything For starters, how Tina just tells it and by it, I mean everything from working at SNL to impersonating Sarah Palin lik

    Sure, you could read Bossypants Provided you like all that self deprecating I m Tina Fey and I am enormously successful and I am thankful for that, but at the same time I still struggle with being a working woman with a real life, because it is so weird that I am a media icon when I still really think of myself as an unpopular high school theater dweeb, and isn t life weird, like when I w...

    First, I must preface this two star rating by saying that since Goodreads does not allow zero stars I m forced to reserve my one star ratings only for very special pieces of shit Secondly, at no time while reading this did my blood alcohol content drop below twice the legal limit and even that hardly made this book tolerable I wasn t expecting much, obviously, but this book fails to live up to even the exceeding low standards of airport bookstores I liked Tina Fe

    Three and a half stars I think Tina Fey is awesome I think this is a slight but solid book Her authorial voice sounds exactly like her speaking in my head It s sometimes funny, sometimes self deprecating, sometimes empowering It spendstime than one might expect on some things, and no time on others I think she tried to skirt a line between memoir and humor essayist that is a difficult one to skirt I think it s an easier thing to do if you re David Sedaris and nobody has specific

    Big Tina Fey fan here I have always enjoyed her work on SNL and have seen almost every episode of 30 Rock I have seen some of her movies, not all She is very definitely funny and smart Her Sarah Palin kills So what might one expect from a Tina Fey book One of two things, either a straight ahead comedic book with plenty of anecdotes, jokes and maybe a bit of behind the scenes info, or a personal memoir, with detail about her background I felt that Fey committed to neither fully and wound

    Tina Fey American Icon 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. I really appreciated how this novel had a good mix of heartwarming anecdotes, comedic happenstances and career musings While I am not as familiar with her SNL and early career, this book was fun and easy to listen to.As with many a memoir, we start with her childhood love of comedy and processed to her current day adventures or perhapsacc Tina Fey Americ
