From a very young age, Tina Fey was witty and ambitious. She set goals early and strived to reach them, never stopping to rest. Her autobiography “Bossypants,” was fascinating and inspiring. However, it was also very comedic.
Fey begins the book by addressing the reader directly and evaluating his or her objective for reading her novel. She then begins to humorously narrate her life from birth to her current age of 41 years old.
Fey includes information about her childhood and family matters as well as her early education and career progression. She neglects no details, including accounts of her college boyfriends and part-time jobs.
When addressing professional aspects of her life, she provides the reader with tips and instructions for success and when speaking of personal matters, she delivers an entertaining chronicle of events.
Fey’s tone is both sincere and sharp when addressing the reader. The novel is both motivational and hilarious at the same time.
After I bought the book in the Dallas airport, it was difficult to put down. Every chapter is a new ridiculously compelling story from some point in Fey’s life. The novel never ceased to retain my attention.
For booklovers seeking a light, clever read, Fey’s “Bossypants” will not let you down.
