I've only listened to the first few chapters so far but I wanted to write my review now because I don't think I've ever enjoyed an audiobook's introduction this much before! Rainn Wilson reads it, but it was written by Steve Carell and hilarity ensues. I won't spoil it, but it's soooo funny.
So far, Jenna's chapters are really great, too! I can see how this would be helpful for people who want to become actors, but I am still enjoying it as someone who does not. It's a little bit memoir-y because she shares a lot of personal anecdotes. Her narration is great, too! As a fan of The Office, it's fun to hear things from her perspective as a real life person, not as the character that I think a lot of people still see her as (Pam). That being said, she does seem to share some similarities with her famous character and that is just so super endearing.
She honestly seems so sweet and listening to this really makes me love her even more! I'll finish this one quickly because it is (so far) a great listen.

Would you listen to The Actor's Life again? Why?
Yes! I'm a huge fan of The Office and it was so cool to hear what it was like on set. I loved Jenna's telling of the Pam/Jim first kiss!
What does Jenna Fischer Rainn Wilson Natalie Zea Sean Gunn Derek Waters Reed Birney Mark Proksch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Since the book is part memoir, it was great to hear her read it. It was also awesome that the interview part at the end with her actor friends was actually read by the actors and Jenna!
Any additional comments?
A must listen for fans of Jenna Fischer, The Office and aspiring actors alike! Or even if you've ever wondered what struggling actors in Hollywood really go through!
