Purely all jokes, waste of time and a lot nothingness to fill pages. Nothing very original or profound. Sorry I didn't like this at all.
Ellen was great to listen, and it's a quick listen that's great for commuting. At times, Ellen will go on long winded tangents that lose their comedic weight, and she tries to "sell" the book more than a few times, but other than that, it is well worth listening to. the light heartedness put me in a fantastic mood before and after work for a couple of days, and the main message to stay happy is illustrated through example. I probably wouldn't have liked it as much if it was anyone but Ellen reading it, but reading the book paper wouldn't be difficult either; her voice is very consistently whimsical.
This woman is extremely funny, but writing is not what she should be doing – at least not sharing it with the public. She should stick to standup comedy and the great monologues on her show and leave the writing to her journal.
I like magical realism.
I liked it, I just wish there had been more to it. It's funny and mildly interesting, but I didn't think it had a whole lot of substance to it.
