Description

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!)

Bof.

La manière totalement aléatoire de séparer le livre en 77 chapitres n'était pas du tout pratique.
De plus, les anecdotes de sa vie personnelle étaient trop nombreuses par rapport à celle concernant sa carrière/vie professionnelle. Dommage, car Tina Fey est une actrice intéressante que j'aime beaucoup.

Tina Fey is bossy and wears pants

this review will have fifteen words just to satisfy the nerd who made that requirement

Not for my generation

The first few chapters of this book are filled with pop culture references from the 70's and 80's. Since I was born in the mid 80's, most of these flew right past me and I'm sure obscured some of the humor. If you're a baby boomer or Gen X, it might work for you, but I couldn't get past it. Maybe I'll finish listening if I have nothing else in my library, but it wasn't for me.

Also, a lot of the humor is based around being a nerdy, not attractive girl, and since I'm a guy, I couldn't really relate.

Not what I was expecting

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not sure what I was expecting ... I actually read the e-book, instead of listening to this one; while it was fun to read her perspective of how she got to where she is now. I was always a fan of her writing and her news on SNL. I think she is very funny and witty; 30 Rock is great, I watch it regularly, but this book was almost more like sitting down to lunch with Tina and she answered the question

I expected more, actually.

What did you like best about Bossypants? What did you like least?

Tina was funny, but not as funny as I had expected. What is your target audience, Tina? I couldn't find myself in it. A little heavy on the feminism preaching, but I get it. Also, the editor dropped the ball by allowing Tina to begin talking rapidly at the end of some phrases for the effect of muttering under her breath. It was impossible to understand these phrases.

What was most disappointing about Tina Fey’s story?

Nothing was really disappointing, although some parts lacked substance. I expected to laugh out loud more than once. I didn't.

What three words best describe Tina Fey’s voice?

Kitten with whip.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Nope.

Can't anyone be funny without swearing? :(

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I didn't make it through the book...in fact I didn't listen to very much at all. I have small children and I prefer not to have swearing and F-bombs pop out while I'm listening in the house with them. So I'm sure that won't bother most, obviously she is very popular and good at what she does....it's just not for me. Wish I had returned the book when I could have. Oh well.

Not what I hoped

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not really, it just wasn't as good as I thought, but it wasn't necessarily bad. I Love Tina but I'm not a huge fan, I didn't want 30 rock regularly anyway. I think you have to really love 30 Rock to love the book as the book was mostly about the show and how she made it big and did the show. I love that she's such a modern day women's libber.

I wish she would have told us how her face got slashed. She shouldn't have even brought it up. I never even noticed her scar before. It was a teaser.

High expectations not met

Is there anything you would change about this book?

If there was anything I would change about this book, it would be the flow of events in her book. I would have appreciated it more if she did not jump around too much when telling her story.

Has Bossypants turned you off from other books in this genre?

Bossypants might have made me realize that this type of genre is not for me but I think I would still try out another book just to make sure.

What three words best describe Tina Fey’s voice?

Three words to describe Tina Fey's voice are quirky, upbeat and supportive.

Did Bossypants inspire you to do anything?

Bossypants inspired me to never apologize for who I am and not to care of what other people thought of me. As long as I know that what I want, go for it and do not look back.

Any additional comments?

I downloaded the standard quality audiobook in my iPhone and was distracted with the slight echo quality while listening.

Mediocre

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No

Any additional comments?

Tina Fey has a weird obsession with a woman's ---- (not sure it's appropriate to name the private part). The story of 30 Rock was great. Beyond that, it was pretty mediocre and I didn't laugh as much as I expected. It was a disappointment.

Gut unterhalten

Würden Sie Bossypants noch mal anhören? Warum?

Ja, ich habe sehr gelacht. Und ich lache gerne.

Was mochten Sie an der Handlung am liebsten?

Das persönliche Gespräch hat mir gefallen, und dass die Autorin selbst liest.

Welche Figur hat Tina Fey Ihrer Meinung nach am besten interpretiert?

Sich selbst, ganz klar.

Wenn Sie dieses Hörbuch verfilmen könnten wie würde der Slogan dazu lauten?

get bitchy or die tryin'!

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Wer nicht lachen will, soll es nicht hören.

großartig!

Wer Tina Fey und ihre Auftritte in 30 Rock und Saturday Night Live mag wird dieses Hörbuch lieben. Gelesen wird es übrigens von Frau Fey höchstpersönlich.

Ganz okay

Ganz okay, aber irgendwie konnte ich dazu genauso wenig Zugang finden wie zu ihrer Serie 30 Rock. Nervig war auch, wie leise sie zum Satzende häufig wurde.

Hilarious

Extremely entertaining and funny stories told by Tina herself. Brilliant, I absolutely loved it. Tina Fey sometimes speaks quite fast, so your English has to be really good to understand all the little side notes that crack you up laughing. Also, you have to be into American SNL comedians and Hollywood actors to get the full wit and humour of her stories.

Funny and light hearted

A solid and funny book with sharp wit. Nothing special that would stay on my mind for too long, but very enjoyable while doing some housework.

Extremely funny and true

Very entertaining with bits of real world problems but still funny, smart and relatable. Real issues like sexism are talked about, too.

Immer wieder zum Schmunzeln und Lachen,

allerdings nur, wenn man Tina Fey und ihre "Werke" gut kennt. Ansonsten kennt man oft die Hintergründe der erzählten Episoden nicht und weiß eigentlich gar nicht so recht, wo die Pointe liegt und warum man jetzt lachen sollte. Trotzdem empfehlenswert und wenn es nur wegen der bissigen Kommentare ist.

Lebenswichtig für alle 30 Rock Fans!Und überhaupt!

Für alle Fans der Serie ein MUSS da viele Insider Infos verraten werden über Cast und Crew.Aber vor allen andersen Dingen strotzt es nur so vor humorigen Anekdoten und Lebensweisheiten im bekannten Tina Fey Stil. Oprah könnte es nicht besser machen.
