It's taken me a long time to admit this publicly, but I did not love Yes Please. Given my obsession with Bossypants (Tina Fey) and Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (Mindy Kaling), I assumed that by the end of this audiobook I'd be desperately hoping to run into Amy Poehler on the street so that we could magically become best friends...
I realized in listening, however, that my crush is actually on Leslie Knope and not on Poehler herself. Parks and Rec fans be warned -- you might not like what you find.
That being said, the narration is obviously awesome, and is filled with fun celebrity cameos.

Amy is one of the smartest minds in entertainment and I also avidly follow her Smart Girls page on Facebook. She is smart, witty and a household name but as a writer she fails. The book is a pointless ramble of her life's ups and downs... It's like reading a sucky column in a magazine every single day just coz you like that celebrity. She has no beauty in her writing or thoughts. She is NOT a writer. I love the challenges and cause that she is espouses, it's admirable but sorry doesn't make it on my bookshelf.
The performance of the audible is clearly one of the best coz Amy is one of the finest voices in the industry. The panache in her tone is beautiful.
