Bossypants, by Tina Fey

Leave a comment

I listened to the audiobook version of Bossypants, written and narrated by Tina Fey.  It was illuminating to hear her actual voice as she intends people to hear her writing.  I don’t thinkBossypants, by Tina Fey my inner imaginings of it, as a reader, would have done the book justice and I probably would have missed the nuances in her sense of humor.  Listening to humorous stories about her early family life, high school,  college, and early career was entertaining and enjoyable.   I felt it became a little tired when she started to visit the scenes at 30 Rock.  I am an avid fan of 30 Rock, and have seen a good amount of the footage that she described, so it felt repetitive to me to revisit that ground.  Overall, it was an interesting peak into Tina Fey’s life and philosophy.
