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 broke my new SUV

With 3124 on my new SUV's odometer, I was laughing so hard listening to Tina that I clipped a cement highway divider driving to work.

That's not the funny part.

I kept on laughing.. Tina Fey is like comedic Oxytocin.

Buy this book. Keep both hands on the wheel.

Very Disappointing

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

After reading the reviews of the readers’ feedback I purchased the book and was very disappointed that it was not funny or entertaining as the readers have mentioned… I actually find it annoying and boring. The fact that the author reads is does not add to the experience. She is talking about trivial things and gives her own opinion which is neither original nor adds value to the view on the facts or situation she is describing. I went half way through and had to abandon this book. Such a waste of time and money! Probably people who were watching her show or are her admirers would find this book useful as a source to get to know the author intimately.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I would go with an author who I have read before and enjoyed and would not experiment based on the best selling list books.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappoitment.

Thought this would be a really funny and light read. It was light but not too many laugh out loud funny parts. I was pretty disappointed.

Disappointing

I am puzzled by the fact that most readers have given this book 5 stars. I have listened to perhaps 20 audiobooks in the past couple years, and this is the first one that I really am struggling to finish. I expected the book to be hilarious, and, having gone through now 4/5 of the book, I have only laughed a few times. I agree with the reviewer who noted that much of the humor is woman-centric, so perhaps it would be a much more engaging read for a woman. It feels like a lazy book to me, like Tina Fey just whipped it out, without putting out the effort to say more interesting and witty things.

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.

Could not relate

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book would be interesting and entertaining to middle age women and anyone who like New York. If you are not in those two groups, you may not relate to the story very well. Tina Fey's overview of her life describes an average woman looking at life choices from a privileged point of view. There were jokes in the book but it is not a comedy book, it is a biography with snarky comments.

Boring story narrated with comic timing

What disappointed you about Bossypants?

The entire book was 1 sarcastic comment after another, each delivered without any timing.

Would you ever listen to anything by Tina Fey again?

Never!

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

The only good part was the brief description of Tina's father. She clearly loved and admired him.

Any additional comments?

I had high expectations for this book based upon her work on Saturday Night live and 30 Rock. Afterwards, I had no respect or interest in Tina Fey. Indeed, I think she was so good as portraying Sarah Palin because she is a similar mindless idiot.

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.

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."

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.

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.
