Review: Bossypants by Tina Fey

BossypantsBossypants by Tina Fey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I like Tina Fey a lot. I think she's a really good female role model, and hilarious to boot (or maybe that should have gone first, since that is basically the foundation of her career). Bossypants was funny, but not hilarious. The self-deprecating humor I usually appreciate actually read a lot like, gasp, humility, a good amount of the time.

It was a good read, and funny, and I gained a lot of insight as to what she's gone through to get where she is today, and how under-appreciated women comediennes are and have been. But if I hadn't already loved her, I doubt the book would have interested me much at all, which is sad to say. Because I do love her, and I guess that means I came in with unreasonable expectations. Ah well, my love for Tina Fey is forgiving. And I always refer to her that way, Tina Fey, not just a single name, like every cute boy I never had a chance with in school.
