Hearing it read by her seems more funny than reading it.
Some tiny funny bits.
You stay classy, Planet Earth.
I'm not really sure who would like this.
The way this was read was so awkward. It just sounded all wrong. Not funny at all.
It didn't sound natural. Took away from the funny writing.
She is so not funny and her sarcasim which I usually love was to much.

I chose this book because I think Ellen is funny and was hoping to hear stories based on her experiences, but I had a hard time differentiating whether she was being sincere or it was stand up material. There were sections where she shared some deep thoughts about society and being an upstanding person, then suddenly she's back to her comedy act. Just wasn't what I expected I suppose. I couldn't finish it. I still enjoy Ellen and continue to watch her show , I thinks she is one of the most generous celebrities, I just didn't enjoy this book. (Sorry Ellen :(
I'm a huge fan of Ellen's. Hence my purchase of this book. But I can't believe how bad it was. I guess I was looking for somewhat of a story line or something. Instead, it was just her incessantly rambling about any random thought that entered her brain. If you are looking for something extra silly and basically useless, then this is the book for you. I'm just glad I bought during a half off sale.
