It was not as funny as her show. Maybe the ambience during the show makes her funnier.
It started out well but fizzled toward the end.
The narration was OK.
Quite a few after two-thirds of the book.
I still like her humor, just not in book form.
Graphic designer and University professor. I love comics and to be always learning something new!
I'm lucky to have been raised vegan like my parents and understand so much all she talks about positivism and kindness... The book fills you up with so much love and laughter that it's contagious!
For huge fans of Ellen like me, a little warning, there's a bunch of stuff she has already used on her monologues on her show but it's still funny :P
I live more than a 1.000.000 miles from USA and still makes a difference in my life! I loved it!
This book is funny and light hearted. Just what I was looking for in a comedy. Ellen does a wonderful job performing. The pace is just right - not too fast, not too slow- just write. It does get a bit too silly in some parts but overall a great comedy!
This was a great book, she throws in some lighthearted chapters when she reads heavy ones to show you it's okay to laugh at the experiences. Even if you have already read it I highly recommend the Audio Book because she makes it so much better. Be happy.
Love her show but this was boring and nonsense. I felt like I was duped and spent money on a book that she threw out for bucks in her pocket.

While Ellen is funny and full of life, I just felt like this was very rambling and just not very interesting.
First off, I absolutely adore Ellen on her talk show. I think she is an amazing person. However, in my opinion this book was far from amazing. Honestly, I couldn't even finish it. I stopped listening around chapter 17 and am completely surprised I even let it go on that long without stopping it sooner. I was waiting for the book to pick up and become entertaining. Needless to say that never happened.
This book is completely chaotic. There's no structure. There's no story. Imagine someone smoking pot and then rambling for a few hours about the most random of random that random could ever be. Around chapter 17 is when I decided to read the bad reviews and was surprised that I truthfully couldn't agree more with them. I though maybe I was the asshole that wasn't listening or comprehending properly. But no, the majority of the population was in agreeance this book was bad. Unfortunately I would not recommend this book, unless of course it was too a stoner than I would definitely recommend it.
In true Ellen style this book manages to capture humour while at the same time instilling various positive ideas in the reader. Great book.
Ellen cannot be any funnier. otherwise I would have to find the fountain of youth or the secret to immortality, I would totally give it to you because I want you to live FOREVER!
THERE WAS NO FORM, REMINDED ME OF SOMEONE'S RANDOM THOUGHTS.
NOT WHAT I EXPECTED. I WANT A REFUND
