Funny.... Entertaining..... Honest.
Not even sure first audible by a comedian I've heard.
It was told like a story in true ellen wit!!!
Oh yeah got through it quickly loved it!
I think Ellen is very funny, and I thought her book was amusing. I don't know whether or not I'd "read" another, but it was good for the day I read it, with a 4-hour drive to and from Pennsylvania.
I think it's easy to understand why not everyone would like this book. It doesn't necessarily have meaning, or a plot, or many of the things books usually require. But I found it a quick, fun listen, something more exciting on my drive than just watching the trees go by listening to the same music I always hear.
I can't believe that this is a book. If this were a regular person and not a celebrity, it would be considered boring, irrelevant, crazy ramblings. But because it is Ellen, it is slightly entertaining. But really, there is NO POINT to this book. She actually has an entire chapter dedicated to her audiobook listeners where she just makes noises. Dumb.
There is no point to it. She's just rambling.
I would probably not try another book from Ellen DeGeneres. I love her television show, but found this book (that I didn't finish) very boring. The chapters were very short. I guess I was hoping to know more about Ellen. It was just a serious of gags.
better jokes, more story telling
Just better jokes or telling some interesting story, I am sure she has interesting experiences worth telling with a comedy twist
The lack of good jokes
Those with the ocean in the background
I wold recommend NOT TO BUY this book
expectation was too high
sure, but i'll probably just recommend them this book, if they are looking for something to pass time i guess.
i love Ellen, but i thought the tone was a bit 'dead' from time to time, i guess she really is more fun to watch
I've always enjoyed watching Ellen's show, but this adds an extra layer of insight into who she is. She inspires me, makes me laugh, and makes me wish I had more friends like her.
Yes! Besides the obvious of being entertain, she mentions things that make you reflect on your everyday life, with a hint of joyful sarcasm. I cannot think of a better way to spend my daily hour commute to work!
The originality. It's Ellen narrating and it's like if you were in front of her on her show. It's refreshing, it's different and it's so funny!!
Both my wife and I are huge fans of Ellen, so when we downloaded this audio book to listen to on our long drive up the east coast, we had high expectations of being thoroughly entertained. I’m sorry to say, as much as we like Ellen, this is one of the worst audio book listening experience we’ve ever had. Ellen narrates the book and is great at it, but her material is just tedious ramblings. She seriously did not invest too much thought in the material. Halfway through the book I began losing faith that it would get better and began hoping that seriously... she was kidding.
Her narration was very natural and easy to listen to. She is excellent at story telling, that is what makes this experience the more disappointing.
I loved that it was One, read by her. Two, it's just Ellen being Ellen. <3
OH my! EVERYTHING! You can just picture her sitting on a sofa telling her story. It's as if someone is not a reading a book to you but instead just talking to you.
Sweet, Funny book.
