My Star Rating:
BLUF: Bossypants is a light, amusing read, but I would have been disappointed if I had bought the book instead of borrowed it.
Bossypants is essentially the ramblings of Tina Fey. This is mostly a benefit as the book reads like you’re in a conversation with her. There are instances where I think she purposely made the writing seem awkward or went on a tangent with the humor, but it’s exactly what you would expect from the author. (That said, the thing I found most interesting about the book was realizing that Donald Glover worked on 30 Rock.)
There is a downfall if you choose to buy/rent this electronically. All of the asterisks throughout the book correlate with a long list of “footnotes” at the end of the e-book. Even knowing this from the beginning, taking the time to read the correlating asterisk isn’t worth it. I guess this doesn’t really matter, but they seem amusing.
