Review | The Office BFFs by Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsley

“When you watch ‘The Office’ you are watching a group of people who are having fun and becoming good friends. We formed a deep bond with our castmates and crew during those nine years, and I think we passed that feeling on to our audience.” – 4.5/5 stars!

Attention! This book contains: auditions, gossip, hair & makeup trailers, red carpets, improv, special guests, amazing catering, on-set accidents and behind the scenes stories.

An intimate, behind-the-scenes, richly illustrated celebration of beloved The Office co-stars Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey’s friendship, and an insiders’ view of Pam Beesly, Angela Martin, and the unforgettable cast of the hit series’ iconic characters. Featuring many never-before-seen photos.

  Receptionist Pam Beesly and accountant Angela Martin had very little in common when they toiled together at Scranton’s Dunder Mifflin Paper Company. But, in reality, the two bonded in their very first days on set and, over the nine seasons of the series’ run, built a friendship that transcended the show and continues to this day. Sharing everything from what it was like in the early days as the show struggled to gain traction, to walking their first red carpet—plus exclusive stories on the making of milestone episodes and how their lives changed when they became moms—The Office BFFs is full of the same warm and friendly tone Jenna and Angela have brought to their Office Ladies podcast.

This book was way better than I thought! I admit I picked this randomly without giving it much thought, but it turned out to be an amazing and fun reading experience. I was having so much fun that I ended up listening to the audiobook in a single day!

Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsley starred on the tv show “The Office” as Pam and Angela, and they became very close friends in real life (not in the tv show… not even close). They wrote this book together, and here they share their experiences on set and how they developed their close friendship.

I’m a big fan of “The Office” tv show for a number of different reasons. I love the dry humor, the comedic timing, the talented cast, the improv moments, Jim & Pam (or should I say Jam)… and the list goes on! So when I found this book existed, I quickly added it to my (endless and bottomless) TBR list. Now that I read it, I can tell you that I love it!

There are so many things I found out through this book that I would have never thought in a million years! But what I think what surprised me the most was to find out that the writers and producers had a very close relationship with the actors, and all of them participated and contributed with creative ideas, storylines and even personal experiences. This blew me away! It’s not very common to see that in other tv shows. There was a lot of room for the cast to improv and to make suggestions.

I never listened to their podcast “The Office Ladies”, but I might give it a try someday. According to other reviewers, a lot of what they shared in the book was already shared in the podcast.

I also really liked the guest appearances throughout the book! Rainn Wilson and Creed’s appearances were the best, in my humble opinion! I wish Steve apeared in a different way, but I was still happy to hear him with his small participation.

Needless to say this book is every fan’s dream! If you’re a fan of the show, this is a must read. I’m sure you will have a lot of fun reading it.
