Let me preface: I'm a BIG fan of Ellen. This book, however, was horrible. It was filled with non-sense and ramblings. I skipped entire chapters, multiple times. I do not need to hear Ellen's random thoughts as she sits on a beach. I can do that myself. For free. And I definitely don't want to hear it as I'm on a crowded bus, during my commute.
I thought this would be more thought-provoking, laugh-out-loud funny. Instead it was Ellen digressing in these tangents that annoyed me and didn't even make sense. Have a good listen to the sample first. It doesn't get any better than this, trust me.
I'm disappointed I spent my Audible credit on this. I want my money back.
I love Ellen's comedy but as a narrator of a written book not so much. I may have liked the book more if I just used Ellen's voice in my head rather than her real voice. It wasnt much like her anyways, it was a bit monotoned and boring at times... I would definitely recommend the book to others though, just not in audio form.
Funniest Freaking Book In The World!!!!
A lot of it was silly.
A lot of it made no sense.
A lot of it was meant to be read not listened to.
But above all else the book made me laugh my ass off. Literally laughing out loud. This book is funny on so many different levels and just hearing Ellen's voice brightens up my day.
I watch Ellens show every day and support her in every way possible.
Thankyou Ellen for writing this hilarious book and for making me smile and laugh each and every day.
GREAT AUDIOBOOK!!! A MUST-LISTEN!!!!!!!!!
If she would tell stories more from the heart. She didn't reveal anything interesting or in depth which is why one would buy a book from someone like her. Whats beyond Americas funny girl.
Shared more of her instead of her writing team of sometimes boring jokes.
I'll stick to her show and cover girl ads.
errr ahhh mmmm
I enjoyed it but thought it would flow a little better.
Yes it was and ellen is always worth listening to.
Maybe....She always has good & uplifting points in the book, and that's what I try to walk away with.
happy & uplifting thoughts
I was expecting better
Her sense of humor and positive outlook were refreshing and made a long drive much smoother.
Ellen doesn't just read the paragraphs.... it's more like she's acting or delivering a stand-up monologue. I loved it.
It's a short, funny book, so it's great on Audible. Complex literature is not well suited to the audio format.
I hadn't listened to/read any of her previous books, but I love her TV show.
Sure, that would've been great. But because I only listen to Audible books in my car, it took me about 3 days to finish it. It made me laugh even while in traffic.
If you like Ellen or love comedy in general, you'll really enjoy the book.
I was not impressed by this book. I 100% adore Ellen, but this book was very mediocre.
Would have liked it more if Ellen read the story more like she talks in real life on her show. Sounded too much like reading, not as funny as I expected and I love her humor!!
