Audiobook Review: Bossypants by Tina Fey



This book follows Tina Fey throughout her career in comedy and showbusiness. From elementary school to drama (like stage drama) in high school, to her beginning in stand-up, to Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. She narrates the audiobook herself.

What I Liked

  • It is quite humorous. She includes a lot of interesting anecdotes from her younger years, and she includes a lot of sarcasm.
  • It kept me very engaged, especially on a long, otherwise boring, road trip. You know how if you’re driving by yourself it’s boring and a bit hard to stay awake? But you don’t have the same problem when you’re talking to someone? This book was engaging like that.

What I Didn’t Like

  • To be honest, I’m sort of ambivalent towards this book. I enjoyed listening to it, but I’m not sure it added much to my life. I’m neither happier nor sad at having read it.
  • Once my road trip was over, it took me a good week or so to pick this back up and finish listening to it. It wasn’t compelling enough for me to listen to it when I wasn’t trapped in a car with nowhere to go.

In Conclusion

If you’re a big fan of Tina Fey, or if you’re on a roadtrip and need something engaging to listen to, pick up this audiobook. If not, maybe go watch something she worked on.
