This challenge I will be talking about a non-fiction book that I have read and everyone should as well! I have a couple that I have sitting around the house that I never got around to logging into Goodreads – I guess I should do that soon huh? Anyway, thank you Long and Short Reviews for another good topic!
I want to talk about Tina Fey’s Bossypants. I honestly picked this up because I love Tina Fey and had no idea what I was getting into.. I normally read the back or something but this is one I just blind picked! I do that on occasion when I’m at the book store – Which is why the hubs doesn’t let me go alone anymore.
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 always 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!
This is of course a comedy book which i quite enjoyed. It read as if she was telling it from her point or as a sketch in one of the many comedies she appears on. For me, the most enjoyable parts was what was happening backstage along with the politics of Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. Getting to have Fey recount her first day as a writer on SNL, when she draws the short straw and has to be the one to tell host Sylvester Stallone that he needs to “enunciate” more and this right here is why everyone should read it.
The moments of laughter especially if I had gotten the audiobook version because then it would of been HER reading it to you. But you have to keep in mind that each story has nothing to do with each other and is just a sess-pool of information that can be enjoyable if you don’t focus on each thing going together. But it still has all the Tina Fey sass that we all know.
What about you?
