Bossypants by Tina Fey
Narrated by: Tina Fey
Published: April 5th, 2011
Length: 5 hours 30 minutes
Summary (from Goodreads): 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!)
Review: This was my first biography that I have “read”. I am so glad that I decided to listen to the audiobook. Having Tina Fey narrate her novel in her deadpan voice was perfect. Hearing about her life and how she got to where she is now gives me hope that I can one day be successful. To be honest, I thought maybe she could have gone deeper. Some areas seemed to be sugercoated or glossed over with like a funny anecdote. And I also expected to laugh out loud a bit more.
There isn’t really anything much else I can say about this autobiography. It’s a great listen!
A definite listen! What’s an audiobook that you enjoyed recently?
