I have always liked Ellen Degeneres. Hearing herself narrate her own book is fantastic! Her humor is fun and her outlook on life is wonderful.
Ellen does a great job performing her work. Even made adjustments to the book to make it appropriate for audio.
Light and fun listen. Made me smile and chuckle, and warmed my heart a few times.
Listening to Ellen Is like watching her TV except i am not tied down to the TV. I can listen and laugh outside, while driving my car or while relaxing in bed. I enjoy using my imagination to see her expressions as she reads her book. I would highly recommend this listen to everyone!! It really does put a smile on your face. My husband smiles at me as I listen and laugh out loud.
Loved the humor throughout the book. She talks about situations we are all familiar with, she talks about things that have happened to all of us. She is really down to earth.
I loved the chapter Ellen has on sounds she makes and she says for those of you reading you will have to just imagine the sounds I will make and for those listening - you can hear them. HAHA- she is a hoot!
No - I listen and repeat chapters when i need to de-stress.
buy it! You will not regret it.

Seriously...who doesn't love her? What's not to love? She's hillarious and this is just a silly little book that will crack you up.. Great pick me up or just a good listen when you need a laugh..
I just didn't find this book that funny. Some parts were downright boring and couldn't wait to finish it and move on to my next one.
I guess it just was not my type of book.
I generally like Ellen DeGeneres' humor, but this was rambling nonsense. I kept checking to see how many more chapters were left to determine if there would be a fleeting chance that it would get better. I was left uninspired and definitely not entertained. A die-hard Ellen fan may overlook the lack of content and enjoy the chummy reading.
I would listen to other books from Ellen DeGeneres. I am hopeful that future books will contain intelligent dialog that represents her world class humor.
The performance was tolerable, but I'm afraid the lack of conviction for her own work seems to affect the overall performance.
I enjoy listening while I am in my car. Recently my daughter and I went on a college road trip to check out three colleges she is considering. She doesn't enjoy listening to books in the car. As a compromise I purchased "Seriously...I'm Kidding." We had listened to "the funny thing is..." a while back and we both enjoyed it. "Seriously...I'm Kidding" was a lot funnier. We were both laughing and the book took us from Dallas to Austin.The drive flew by thanks to Ellen. This one will always have a special place in my heart, the soundtrack to an important event for both of our lives.
Yes, I am a big fan of Ellen, and I would especially like to read a book of hers that is a little more serious.
Yes, I like Ellen's sense of humor.
If you crack up at all of Ellen's jokes on her show, or during her standup routines, you will like this. It is not a story, nor an autobiography, but some snippets of her life. She tells the stories without telling too much about herself, and often goes off on random tangents that aren't that funny. I wish it was a little bit more sentimental rather than over the top.
Yes and I have. I would recommend hte audiobook over just the book. You have to listen to Ellen voice. I laughed out loud several times as I was listening to it at work.
I LOVE Ellen DeGeneres! That might be why I enjoyed this book so much. It is completely random, no direction whatsoever. It was like reading one of her comedy acts. I loved the narration and the story....we'll i'm not sure there was one?
