Amy is my queen
Not the giggle fest I thought it would be...
More structure and more laughs! She did actually pre warn that there would be many random tales, but halfway through one story she would digress onto another and I find myself getting quite annoyed with this. Also I expected Amy to have talked through more of her journey to becoming a Saturday Night Live performer, but it didn't go much detail at all. I had expected it to be laugh out loud hilarious in places but I just didn't find the selected memories all that funny either!
No, I have enjoyed several memoirs and autobiographies, this one just didn't hit the right note with me.
As it's a memoir Amy is the main feature in the audiobook, but it was good to hear snippets of Will Ferrell in his Saturday Night Live days.
Amy Poehler's narration of the book is perfect - which makes sense as she's the author, but even so it's very engaging. I also enjoyed the guest speakers which added an extra dimension for Audiobook listeners.
I don't think that this is neccessarilly a bad book, my low score just reflects that it didn't meet my expectations for what it would be. It's not side splitting hilarious and doesn't give an insider look into Amy's life, it's simply a collection of random tales and thoughts.
