Look, it was a very cute book. I don’t mean for that to sound as condescending as it does, but… I think she wrote this book too early in her career. She seems like a really nice, cool person with decent stories, but the woman doesn’t have a ton to say. I’m sorry! I really liked her on The Office and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. The best parts ahead.
I really like the fact that she still sleeps and travels with her childhood stuffed animal, since I do as well. We have an identical story about leaving him somewhere on vacation and somehow getting reunited with him. (See what I’m saying here? My stories are not stories that belong in a memoir, not yet anyway.) Although the line about her talking about his personality when she goes, “He wears a small white sailor’s cap that suggests he is not opposed to a good time” is really funny.
I appreciate and love how she prefers to write out “hahahahah” instead of lol. I have strong thoughts on this. Some things warrant a “haha” (although, that’s the meanest one of all, in my opinion, even meaner than “ha” for some reason). Other things deserve a “hahahahahahah” - and some even a “HAHAHAHAH.” Every situation is different! Why doesn’t everyone abide by these rules? They’re good!
She has about two full pages devoted to how great Tina Fey that is so wildly nice and sweet.
That’s all she wrote! I did enjoy the book, I just wish she’d waited a bit to write it. She’s only going to get more successful, so I feel like it could have been a meatier book if she’d have just waited.
