Review: Bossypants by Tina Fey

18 June, 2018 / 4 Comments

This audiobook was okay.  It was fairly entertaining, but for some reason I kept zoning out while listening to it.  So, it wasn’t the most captivating.

I’m my opinion, Ellen DeGeneres’s Seriously…I’m Kidding and Amy Schumer’s The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo audiobooks were better, even though I was rather disappointed in DeGeneres’s.

This book did have me laughing at parts and I enjoyed the humorous way in which Fey told her story.  I appreciate the messages about feminism throughout the book and her descriptions of how it is for women (especially moms) in the work force.  She even deals with issues in her line of work and at her level.

Fey did a good job narrating this book.  It was like listening to a long stand-up comedy show all about her life.  I think that’s pretty common for this type of book.  I prefer it to be a bit more conversational, but oh well.

Looking for more opinions of this book?

About the book

My Copy: Audiobook
Publication Date: April 5, 2011

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 these 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.

  1. Great review, I don’t think that this one will be for me. I do have Amy Schumer’s book in my physical TBR mountain and hope to get around it eventually, but I generally don’t gravitate towards this type of book.

  2. I read this and found it much less entertaining than similar memoirs, such as Caitlin Moran’s or Lindy West’s. I never wrote a review about it though, because I couldn’t quite put my finger on why it wasn’t more engaging for me. I think it’s true that the other two books I mentioned are more conversational, so perhaps that’s it 🙂
