I've been a fan of Ellen's writing since picking up her first book "My Point... And I Do Have One" back in high school. She's funny, witty, relatable and honest. Plus, she's optimistic and positive.
This book combines her random thought conversation style and throws in bits and pieces from her own life. I think her willingness to be honest and share things from her experience is one of the main reasons she connects so well with her readers/audience. Another reason is that even though she is relentless in encouraging people to be positive, look for the joys in life and appreciate every day, she never comes across as pushy or preachy.
I laughed a lot while reading this, and when I was done, I felt really good about my life and how lucky I am for what I have. I recommend you read this book. I think you'll be glad you did.
She has nothing to say.It really looks like she wrote this book just because she had too or somebody made her.I really like her and I think she is a great comedian but this book doesn't say anything, 3 hours of small talk.I think the title was brilliant but nothing else.
I was hoping for an insight into her thinking and life. Instead, it is a rambling wandering comedic monologue...for three hours. I am fighting to get through it.
Write another book that is NOT a comedic monologue. We can watch her show for that.
I read this while I was on a road trip and I have to say that I absolutely LOVED it! I love Ellen, but this audible book was absolutely hilarious. I can't really say there was much of a story, just a bunch of chapters on various subjects. I don't know how she did it, but I felt like I never stopped laughing.
Ellen connects to her audience as if they were listening to her live. I thought her performance was great.
I love to read... love to listen while I walk my dog, Sally Jo.
Don't download this unless you want to listen all about the wonderful things Ellen is doing ... no story, just complete self-promotion. Her first book was so much better.
I Love the Audible version of Seriously ....I'm Kidding.. Ellen is .so funny and witty. Its like having a ring side seat to the inner workings of her mind.
I loved that it was Ellen herself reading it. It made me feel like she was talking just to melike she and the audience's had been best friends all their lifes,and she could just let her mind flow.
ZEllen you ROCK!!!!

This was an enjoyable listen. Ellen is funny, and if you like her sense of humor, you will like this story.
My wife and I are Ellen fans and loved her 1st book. This book did not make us laugh a single time and was mostly a collection of ramblings and incoherent noises that made it impossible to listen to the entire book. We gave up on the book half-way through, which was too much wasted time. It is disappointing that Ellen would push this half-hearted work to her fans.
Don't waste your time on this book.
I don't think I'll ever regret a purchase of something by Ellen. She's so funny, I worried I was disturbing my coworkers with my poorly held-in laughter. Definitely a good purchase.
You can hear what she heard when she was writing it.
I would recommend this to anyone who watches the Ellen show. This is a few hours of Ellen non stop humour. We listened while on a roadtrip. This really gives you a glimpse inside Ellen's life as talk show host, actor, Cover Girl, etc.
This book chronicles experiences and thoughts. Ellen narrates the whole thing.
