I was super excited for this book, I LOVE Ellen!! Unfortunately it seems like she just wrote down her train of thought for a day and somehow got it published. The way this bounces around and the way the chapters blow through with just a few words per chapter actually gives me anxiety!!
I expected more. Love Ellen, but would like to get a refund on this book - not even on the same standard/quality as her talk shows.
Performance ok - just like Ellen
Story needed more substance.
It's was good but I was expecting more. It was cute but not the kind of funny you expect from Ellen. At times it just felt like she was going on a rant. There's no real story line.
Again? I don't think so. It's the kind of book you enjoy only once. Like watching her show and listening to her great jokes. Listening to it again would make it a bit boring since I know what's she is going to say.
I would, but I think I would let some time go by before doing so. She's a great person, comedian and writer but she often talks about the same topics and sometimes the jokes are too American, I wish it would be a bit more international for a change!
A LOT. I wouldn't have bought it if someone else read it! It feels like she's having a conversation with you, and her way of speaking really makes it funny.
Laugh a lot. She's funny! I was kind of expecting to laugh even more, though!
I love the fact that behind the jokes and the situations she really conveys a strong message which can be inspiring!
I'LL WRITE A REVIEW WHEN I FINISH THE BOOK. SO FAR, I FIND IT VERY HILARIOUS!!!!! ELLEN IS THE BEST, MOST INSPIRATIOUAL, AND LOVING PERSON I'VE EVER SEEN.
SOME DAY, I WOULD LIKE TO MEET HER AND PORTIA!!
I'M DISABLED AND HAVE NO TRANSPORTATION. I VOLUNTEER WITH THE OZARKS LITERACY COUNCIL, TEACHING PEOPLE HOW TO READ AND WRITE, AND IN NOVEMBER, I VOLUNTEER FOR THE SALVATION ARMY AS A BELL RINGER. I REALLY ENJOY DOING THESE THINGS, BUT SINCE I TOTALED MY CAR IN DECEMBER, I'VE NOT BEEN ABLE TO DO THE THINGS I LOVE.
I LOVE YOU ELLEN, AND REMEMBER TO "BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER!".
I really liked the message that Ellen puts out there to people of all ages it really touched my heart every single word. I really recommend it. Also Ellen is just a hilarious human being... I don't know what I would do with out her. Thank you Ellen tonight I will have a beer in your honor♡
Seriously Entertaining Audiobook
This is narrated by one of my all time favorite people (one is Ellen DeGeneres, the other is Betty White).
I love Ellen.
Ellen makes you laugh and makes you cry. I recommend watching one of her videos on mondays. You'll thank me later. She is perhaps known as that gay tv show host. She is so much more. To me, she is a role model (see the long review for details).
This is an audiobook, where she narrates a book she wrote about random stuff. I mean really random stuff. And it has a bit of everything in it. In a true Ellen style, it has both the goofy and the serious. Both the inspirational and the laid back stuff. It's three hours of pure enjoyment that left a goofy smile on my face rushing here to write this. I highly recommend it. And in fact, I would advise to listen to random bits here and there. One chapter today and another tomorrow.
Absolutely yes! And then again, and again!
I don't know exactly what I expected of this piece of literary humour. That it was funny probably. I don't believe I laughed once while reading this. Most of the listening time was spent wondering whether DeGeneres was actually serious or kidding. Maybe that was the point of the book.
Some people might like it. I didn't hate it, but wasn't really impressed with it either. It is just a little blah. A piece of filler in the world.
