I had heard a lot about Bossypants, Tina's Fey's autobiography, around the Christmas period and wanted to pick it up. I'm sure most have you have read it by now, but I only spotted it on my friend's bookshelf the other week, so borrowed it for a weekend read. Turns out you only need a morning to read it.
Book description (from Amazon...doesn't tell you much!)
Tina Fey is one of the world's greatest comic writers and performers. Bossy Pants is her first book.
My thoughts -
Bossypants is a perfect, light 'term time' read, but, I am glad I just borrowed it, as it is not a book that I am likely to re-read. I know of Tina Fey through her famous Sarah Palin impersonations. However, I have never seen 30 Rock and this meant that the latter part of her book had less meaning for me. By the end of her book, I felt she was just filling in pages when she wrote down parts of scripts used in episodes. I did however enjoy her stories of her childhood and years working at the YMCA. I have to say, I didn't laugh out loud once though. I think she tired quite hard and I was a bit bored of her negative outlook on herself...(mm-did you see how great he looked at the Oscars!) Saying all that, it was an enjoyable Saturday morning read and I will for sure hunt own a copy of 30 Rock to find out what she was talking about!
What are you reading at the moment? Any recommendations?
