really liked it
bookshelves: audiobook, memoir-bio, 2011

I listened to the audio book version and it was funny and interesting for the most part. Fey describes her childhood, how she got into show business, her subsequent fame and then she jumps into her life now as a mom and working woman.

The show biz details get a bit boring and the book tends to drag around that point in the middle but it picks up when she starts talking about how her career took off when she took on the role of Sarah Palin. She's funniest when she talks about her childhood, being a mom and the nasty email letters she sometimes received.

I think I may have preferred the printed book instead of the audiobook because at times some things didn't sound as funny spoken as they may have written especially when there's this sudden bout of coarse language that just doesn't blend all that well. The ending felt like it was missing something and that it just came out of nowhere.

As far as memoirs go though it's pretty good and easy to listen to.
