Well it's probably easier to explain what I didn't expect I wasn't counting on a sour muddled defensive screed against anyone who pissed off the author in the last thirty years I wasn't hoping for forced obvious stories about the professional discrimination in Fey's history I wasn't looking forward to insecure ramblings about the long hours she put into Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock And I definitely wasn't expecting all of the above to be sugarcoated by a combination of weak insecure meta analysis and self conscious “oh I'm really not that great” coverups You know why Bossypants bugged me? Tina Fey has nothing for which to apologize She's smart she's funny and she's talented So I assume this book had some sort of cathartic impact and she needed to get this bile out of her system Bossypants gets credit for three short uality sections First Fey tackles the “what's that scar on your face?” uestion right up front and follows with some funny interesting commentary on how she can gauge people by how they respond to the scar Second she answers a few critical emailsblog comments as a “uestion and answer” chapter Third she walks the reader through a detailed analysis of the whole “I look like Sarah Palin” era I read this book uickly over two nights and while Bossypants is well written for the most part the subject matter's dour nature left me cold oh 75% of the timeListen I didn't pick this book up whispering under my breath “Make me laugh right NOW Tina Fey Dance monkey dance” But I feel like Tina Fey wrote this book for 1 young women she's trying to inspire and 2 all the people who hate her who will never read this book anyway Maybe 41 year old white guys weren't her target audience I can live with that I'll still watch 30 Rock though and not just because she's hot I just hope next time Fey writes a better book
TEXT õ Ï Tina Fey
A comedian on TVShe has seen both these dreams come trueAt 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 m Tina Fey American Icon Some people say “Never let them see you cry” I say if you’re so mad you could just cry then cry It terrifies everyone I really appreciated how this memoir had a good mix of heartwarming anecdotes comedic happenstances and career musings While I am not as familiar with her SNL and early career this book was fun and easy to listen toAs with many a memoir we start with her childhood love of comedy and processed to her current day adventures or perhaps accurately misadventures A running theme to this book was the importance of being yourself Do your thing and don't care if they like it As a young teen Tina hung out primarily in the theater department thus having the pleasure of getting to know all sorts of uirky characters while being a social pariah to the rest of the school But to her the friendships and life lessons were invaluable to shaping her future So despite what others may have said there was no way she would have lived her life differently After all Gay people don’t actually try to convert people That’s Jehovah’s Witnesses you’re thinking of Her early career was sporadic and difficult breaking into the comedy scene was no easy task but she made it by being bossy and taking no sht from no one I enjoyed how she managed to inject her personal brand of humor throughout her memoir while simultaneously opening up to her real problems and issues My ability to turn good news into anxiety is rivaled only by my ability to turn anxiety into chin acne If you are looking for a light read with great advice look no furtherAudiobook CommentsTina read this one and absolutely rocked it The comedic time was just superb I'd definitely take listening to this book over reading it any dayYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading
