Bossypants – Tina Fey

Rating: 3 stars
Shelf: Reading Now 

I can’t believe I read ANOTHER celebrity bio this year. I think my brain is turning to mush. Anyway – this was okay. I had high expectations going into this and I don’t think they were really met. Sure it was cute and there were moments when I chuckled and I’m glad she finally satisfied my insane need to KNOW about her scar… but – and I’m sure I’ll get crucified for this – I’m sort of getting tired of the same old Liz Lemon/Tina Fey. 

Also, I need to read some non-fiction, stat.

  1. I listened to this audio book earlier in the year. I didn't really know Fey apart from her Palin impersonations, and her reading on the audio was great. I liked the book overall but like you, I was hoping for a little more substance, less deflection using humor.

    Seems like quality diminishes in all things, including people, once they become too popularized.

    Exactly – to both of you. And spot on – "less deflection using humor." I've been a huge fan of the 30Rock television series, but that's the one thing that has started bothering me about the show. It no longer has any heart or substance. The second it seems that a story plot might go there, the writers deflect with a fart joke or something similar. I'm not really into straight toilet humor, and that's what Tina Fey seems to be turning to, more and more.
