Book Review: Bossypants

BossypantsBossypants by Tina Fey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First of all I have to say that I love Tina Fey. She's my favorite. Probably because I see a lot of myself in her... a food loving ugly duckling-type who's also extremely witty, funny, and successful. Ok I may have exaggerated a bit there at the end, but you get the basic idea.

I had mixed feelings about this. I really loved that she read the audiobook and for the most part it was very entertaining. There were parts however where it seemed like she was trying too hard to be funny. I wanted to say, "Relax, Tina. You're doing just fine."

I also wish she would have gone deeper into her story. I didn't feel like I got to know her as well as I'd have liked. Sort of like she was still playing a character instead of being really real. The book was too short and too shallow for someone like me who admires her and really wants to know who she is.

Normally I would have given this 3 stars, but I have to bump it up a notch just because she's Tina Fey. It was definitely entertaining if nothing else.
