Narrated by the author and her pals.
I’m so out of the reviewing mode. Let’s see… I enjoyed this one very much. I think I enjoyed this more than I did the Tina Fey book, which I also listened to. I think memoirs by people of the comedic persuasion are
best good (maybe EASY?) to listen to. Just like my experience with Tina Fey, I only know Amy by her work on Saturday Night Live. I never watched Fey’s primetime show – which I can’t even remember now what it was and I have never seen an episode of the Parks & Rec show that Poehler was on.
[I just don’t watch much television. Oh, I *do* watch television – but I tend to watch the Weather Channel, local news, the Food Network, flipper shows on HGTV, Big Bang Theory reruns during the cook-dinner phase of an evening and whatever sports programming my husband puts on. I don’t watch television when I am home alone. Don’t even remember to turn the damn thing on.]
I loved learning that Poehler is from the Boston area! I found it hysterical that she went off on a rude dude flying first class when he got all uppity to her.
I think Poehler is pretty darn cool.
I wish her all the best in her future endeavors and I rate this 4 slices of pie.
P.S. Since I listened to this and it absolutely bugged me that I couldn’t tell the spelling of Amy’s childhood friend’s name so a big thank you shout out to the friend who let me know from her print version that Amy’s friend was named Keri. Yes, it is a big deal. If you have lived in New England, you may know why. Let’s just say that when I lived there I was constantly asked and apologized to whenever my name was discussed. It was fascinating, I tell ya! Accents and/or pronunciations boggle my brain.
I thought I had something else I wanted to share or remember for my post on this book but I can’t remember what it was so … oh well.
If you like comedy, if you like strong women and celebrate women, and admire people who succeed at their dreams whatever that definition of success may be, then you will likely like this book.
