I love books, and I used to love reading them. Audible is a great alternative for me, increasing my interest in reading again and helping me find out about some great books. :D
It's definitely unique, she was definitely kidding a lot throughout her book so sometimes it was hard for me to tell if something she was saying was true or not, but she is hilarious and I love her energy and perspective on life.
I loved listening to Ellen's funny and unique book in her own voice because she is such an awesome and hilarious woman. This was different than most books I read in how she wrote and read it, but it was great since it was about Ellen.
If you love Ellen and how she acts on her talk show, you will love her book and listening to her narrate it was even more awesome. I can't imagine just reading it without her voice narrating it.
I like to read VERY much .. I'm obsessed with reading I don't have time to actually read a book so I've been a listener for three years now
Maybe I would try one (without buying one )
Nothing .. it good the way it is , but not worth the money .. it's over priced
Maybe if I got it for free
Well , yeah it was enjoyable because it made me laugh at some time but I finished it in two months although it's only 3 hours long !!
Don't buy it .. it's a waste of money .. I love Ellen so much and I watch her talk show everyday (that's why I bought the book ) but it won't satisfy you
Considering I was just commuting anyway, sure. It kept me company. If it were to take me away from anything productive, I would say not.
I liked the tiny insights I got into Ellen's home life with Portia. The least interesting aspect were the completely random tangents.
I have not.
Well let's just stick to Ellen's talk show.
Maybe I just don't get
Ellen gives her funny twist on everyday occurences. A light hearted audio book that makes it hard to push the stop button. Wish it were longer!
I haven't finished listening to Seriously, I'm Kidding. I save it for times when I need to be pulled back from the edge of a dark funk. When I'm feeling down, I start listening to that particular CD because I know it will make me laugh!
Yes, I would listen to it again, because I know, even the second time, it will still be as funny and intertaining.
I'm not finished yet.
I like that Ellen reads the book herself. It's almost as good as watching her show.
Absolutely recommended. Ellen's sense of humor never dissapoints! She's able to seamlessly combine her very real thoughts on life and her charming wit in an infectious way that leaves you wanting more.
This book feels more like a stand-up special. So to describe
Not only does she devote a chapter just to making random noises for audible users, but hearing her perform her work in the way she intended makes the book that much more enjoyable!
It certainly made me laugh!!
Only if they were really bored. Bought it to listen to while driving. I laughed a little but she went off on a few tangents that (sorry) weren't really that funny
not really. Just watch her show on tv
She is so funny and I love her but there were a few chapters that were just her rambling and not where I was laughing just getting annoyed. I actually skipped to the next chapter a few times.
Love her love her love her. Save the rambling for your tv show and give us more of you.
Funny, natural, and sympatico
The very natural delivery of her thoughts. It made me feel like a friend listening to another friend share.
Ellen being Ellen is always enjoyable. She does a great job again with this. If you like her you will definitely like this. Go ahead it's fun.
I would want to hear about personal aspects and stories from the author’s life, one that is almost certainly filled with a combination of heartbreak and joy. I understand the author wants to keep her life private—which is fine. Perhaps better to stick to standup than waste readers’ time with what felt like filler. I really felt like she was just killing time. (Which she even professes to be doing in one or two instances.) The worst part was that I felt she was killing my time—time that I was hoping to spend learning, growing, with a few laughs mixed in.
Her personality. I can even imagine reading it.
