Laughed out load several times, even in public (so people probably thinks I'm crazy now). It's a lovely book by Ellen, and you really feel that it's written by her about her. All stars!
Ellen basically read the book as a book… It was very dry and unemotional. The content was all over the place, and it just lacked the brilliance that Ellen displays on her show and in her comedy.
Ok, so this is a book I started listening to this morning and am done with it before the day ended... I am bedridden with multiple disc prolapse- but I just just did a jig:)). That's what Ellen does to me... Go get a copy- so recommend it...
I loved it! It was funny, informative, inspirational and motivational and also curious... It is a very good audiobook and definitely do not regret having downloaded it. In fact, i heard the 3 hours of the book in a row and i payed attention to every single word. Ellen's voice is just so nice to hear... Is clear, neat and approachable.
I listened to this while walking my dog and it made my daily strolls much more enjoyable. I managed to turn a few heads my way after chuckling more loudly than I'd care to admit.
I had never listened to this particular format before, where the chapters are so incredibly short but, really, there's no reason for them being longer. Short, sweet and to the point.
As I am new at this, I have accidentally written my review of Ellen's book under the wrong title. (The 4th Universe)
The sound of her voice and hearing her talent "live" when delivering her story are much better appreciated than just reading the book.
Again, I love Ellen. She is a funny lady. Book was just too much of a good thing.
But this audio book disappointed me. There were so many random tangents and outrageous hypothetical situations that I don't feel I got any better an understanding of her than I would watching her talk show. She kept us at a distance and I found myself genuinely laughing very little. If you're looking for an insight into the celebrity we all love and admire, it's all here. Seriously, I'm kidding. It's not.
