Review: Bossypants

Bossypants 

by Tina Fey

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Summary (Goodreads):

Before Liz Lemon, before “Weekend Update,” before “Sarah Palin,” Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV.

She has seen both these dreams come true.

At last, Tina Fey’s story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon — from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence.

Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we’ve all suspected: you’re no one until someone calls you bossy.

My Review:

I liked this book, it was easy to pick up and read in bits and pieces. I loved getting to know bits of trivia about Tina Fey that I hadn’t known before. Being able to see her in a truly human light was refreshing for me. I also really liked her cynical humor that she used through out the book as well as her snarky attitude.
That being said sometimes it felt very disconnected between the chapters which while this helped it be a book I could pick up and read whenever, it also felt somewhat disjointed. On top of this there were times the sarcasm and cynicism and just seemed overpowering. making the feel of the book a bit dark.
