Yes Please Reviews
3.5 stars ~ Having YES PLEASE sitting on my Kobo shelf for quite a while unread I decided to give the audio version a try as my sister Brenda listens to audiobooks frequently and told me that I must give it a try. So now I have, Brenda! lol
I found this book to be entertaining and I really liked that AMY POEHLER was the narrator of her own autobiography. To be totally honest I don't really know what actually attracted me to this book in the first place because I don't know too much about Amy Poeh ...more
No, thank you.
I was supposed to love this book and as I always do when I find myself super disappointed, I looked back through other reviews to see if I was alone. I don't think I am alone, but no one is expressing my disappointment quite how I need it to be expressed, so I get to do that myself this time around.
I just kept waiting... and waiting... and waiting. The moment it was going to get good and awesome had to be right around the corner! Soon I would get past all the filler and all the flu ...more
Whelp, look for a flood of reviews coming in, cleaning out my bedroom/office before I go on the road for book tour! That also includes a lot of autobiographies I read as research/pleasure in the last year, preparing and writing my book that I need to add to Goodreads.
I had to cut myself off from reading books in this category, actually, because I started getting intimidated and comparing my structure/writing to other peoples' autobiography structure/writing which only served to paralyze me and m ...more
This is not a comedy book.
I mean, it's funny. Amy Poehler can't write a book and not be funny, because she's Amy fuckin' Poehler. But (and this is not the first time I'm going to compare the two memoirs) where Tina Fey's Bossypants contained humorous essays written specifically for the purpose of being funny, Poehler's does not. Everything is presented in a straightforward, matter-of-fact, fashion, and although a lot of the book is very, very funny, it never seems like this was the specific goa ...more
Disappointing! Poehler complains about how hard it is to write a book many times, which is annoying, but I can't see how it would be hard to write a bad book. It's so obvious she was forced to do this, it's written from a bad place and I felt that bad place the whole time I was reading it. Poehler basically links lazy (she frequently says "I'll tell you about that later" which means she doesn't know how to tell a story) and shallow ("I don't remember anything about SNL so I'm not going to write ...more
Not knowing 'at all' what to expect, I listened to the audiobook on my overdrive app
from the library.
I fall asleep too early to watch SNL. I didn't watch the Emmy's. I never heard of
Parks and Recreation. The only movie I saw Amy in was "Baby Mama".
... But I did see The Golden Globes when she and Tina Fey were the hosts.
I had zero expectations about "Yes, Please". I remembered a few reviews when the book 1st came out. Many of her fans were disappointed, yet a few people enjoyed it, if my mem ...more
After having this on my shelf for like two years I finally got around to it and it was great! I just love Amy Poehler so much guys.
I listened to the audiobook as recommended by most people (while flipping though the physical book for occasional pictures) and MAN would I say if you at all can access the audiobook, listen to that! Not only are there special guest speakers, but some parts have actual audio from the things she is talking about (like scenes from parks & rec)
Amy just seems like a ...more

Scratched another female celebrity memoir off the to-read list! Yaaass!
I was telling someone the other day that celebrity memoirs tend to follow a particular format.
First you have the introduction, a la Troy McClure: "Hi, I'm ______. You may know me from _____, _____, and ______."
Then you have the idyllic childhood with the charming quirks meant to foreshadow their life in showbiz. Don't worry: it's not too idyllic of a childhood. There's a ...more
