Hello everyone, today I’m going to share with you what I thought about Yes Please by Amy Poehler.
I don’t know why but I’ve wanted to read her book for a while. Maybe it was because I consider her a successful talented woman so I wanted to read whatever she had to say (I feel the need to tell you that I have Bossy Pants by Tina Fey on my wishlist). I have never seen her before on Saturday Night Live, but I knew she was a legend; she was funny as hell and everyone on the media loved her. So I guess that without having to see her perform, I wanted to read what she had to say.
I started the book and I completely loved it; when you are going through the pages it seems as if you are having a conversation with her. Even though it’s been edited, it feels raw, real, and honest. On this book, Amy is all over the place. She opens up about a lot of stuff, she tells you what she thinks about certain things in life (like drugs, cellphones, and marriage) and she shares with you things from her past (like her young adult life, her time on SNL and her memories while recording Parks and Rec –careful, if you haven’t watched Parks and Recreation and you are planning to, wait until you finish, because it contains major spoilers).
Like I said before, on Yes Please, Amy Poehler is all over the place, she’s not telling you her life year by year going in chronological order; she goes back and forth between past and present, making it interesting to the reader. One paragraph she’s 10 years old, the next one, she’s 25 and living in New York.
I really loved the book; I read it as if my life depended on it. I couldn’t stop reading because every time I put it down I felt as if I was stopping this amazing chat I was having with her. Her life is so interesting and she has a lot to say!
So, I would have to say that if you loved her on SNL or you loved her on Parks and Recreation, you HAVE TO buy her book. Also, if you want to read the life of a strong, funny, independent and smart woman, go for it because she’s amazing and you won’t regret it. This book will make you laugh and think about a lot of stuff, but I guess the most important thing is that it will inspire you.
