Bossypants by Tina Fey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This audiobook was so entertaining! I love Tina Fey and was very excited to discover she was the narrator. It was great to hear her read her own memoirs. I felt like she was sitting next to me just talking about her life. Her stories are a great mix of sarcasm and sincerity. She also covered a wide array of time periods, from her kindergarten days to becoming the head writer for 30 Rock and everything in between.
I was glad I chose the audiobook as the format to "read" this book. It was great to hear Fey imitating other people's voices and the other sound effects really helped hold the reader's attention, especially the clip from the Sarah Palin/Hillary Clinton SNL skit. The audiobook also includes a helpful PDF with pictures Fey periodically refers to throughout the book.
I don't like to generalize, but I think her book may be more entertaining for women rather than for men. I made the mistake of recommending Baby Mama, one of my favorite movies, to a few guys and after they watched it they were slightly appalled I had recommended it. I feel like this book may fall into the same category. But who knows, I could be completely wrong.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone looking to be entertained for a few hours.
