bookshelves: audiobook, read-2017, non-fiction

I enjoyed that the audiobook was spoken by Amy herself, it allowed me to hear how she wanted me to read her book.

I didn't go into the book with any expectations, but still felt a bit disappointed. There was comedy in there, but not as much as I had liked. Much of the beginning of her story was about her being pregnant, her childbirth, her being a mother: which was not an issue, it was just 3 - 4 chapters in a row that I finally was like "can we change the subject already?"

The guest readers were a nice touch, but felt they may have been thrown in there haphazardly: Seth Meyers chapter, to me, didn't need to be there.

Organizationally it was a little all over the place. References from pre and post SNL life kept alternating at different times and I was sometimes confused. This isn't a major issue, just something I noticed.

I am glad I listened to the book versus read it. I do think it made a difference.

Brittany I felt much the same way. I came into her book after reading Mindy Kaling’s and this just didn’t hold up to my expectations:-/

Diane Wallace Nice review, Nikki!

Elyse  Walters Agree.. about LISTENING to this book rather than read it. I gave a physical copy to my daughter who wanted it...
she’s an actress in LA too...
I couldn’t get into the book myself..,
But I melted with Love and compassion ‘listening’ to many parts of the Audiobook. Loved the stories of Amy growing up..
Loved when her parents talked...
And I cried when she shared about her ghastly public mistake... and asked for forgiveness.
