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.

Waste of Money

Well I wanted something that would make me laugh, unfortunately this didn't do it. If i had a laugh about 3 times during the book, it's saying too much. Sorry Tina!, not my taste.

Bossy and presumtuous

What disappointed you about Bossypants?

Something about Tina Fey bothers me. I don't like the way she prejudges people's intentions or actions. For example, she has people sorted into types as to how they ask about her scar. Hers comes from and act of violence and she must assume that everybody who asks her about, must know this already. Sure, now they do but probably a lot of people didn't. Not all scarring is a delicate subject though. My cousin has a similar scar from running into a tree branch while playing in the yard. I am sorry that we aren't all programmed to meet her criteria for behaviors acceptable to her terms. This is the way she is all the way through the book.

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

No.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tina Fey?

Really?

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

For a Tina Fey fan it is a window into her life and attitudes.

Annoying!

I LOVE Tina Fey on 30 Rock and consider her acting to be first class. This book leaves me irritated and bored frankly: her childhood tales just aren't that interesting, and her performance is grating. I switched from listening to this to David Sedaris and felt immediate relief... made me realize that her humor is far more appropriate in a theatrical/TV ensemble setting.

Very boring.

The only good thing about the book is that it was relatively short. I don't think I could stand another minute of it. I might of smiled once.

Meh

Love Tina Fey but was disappointed with this book. Her narration, while expressive and enjoyable, contained so many sotto voce asides where the volume dropped off so much that it was difficult to hear, therefore I frequently missed portions of the material the first time around. I ended up having to skip backward and turn up the volume to hear those parts - very frustrating. Also, based on other reviews I was expecting laugh-out-loud funny, but this didn't deliver. If you like Tina, you'll like this; amusing, but not a "must read."

Disappointment

What disappointed you about Bossypants?

If you are not from the USA don't buy this book. Half of the things she was talking about I could not understand.

I bought this book based on the positive reviews it has but it is so bad that I could not finish it.

She talks about her life which is not really that interesting, it's very boring actually, but she tries to make it funny. I did laugh at any point.

She also talks very fast, it's like she is in a hurry to finish the book.

The book is a big disappointment.

Not very interesting

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

I returned the book because I just could attach emotionally to her story

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The performance was fine, the material was not

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

No

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.

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.

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.

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.
