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.
More substance? Meh, I know what I was getting. :)
She's really animating. Her voice and pace makes it sound like you're listening to her show, instead of just being read to. She's a pro. There're also occasional accompanying music/ sound effects that are quite pleasant.
I would have liked to know more about her personal life, struggles, and how she overcame them.
I actually like the book, although, the sequence can give you a bit of a headache. It's entertaining, and that's about all you should expect. But, overall, this audiobook will make you smile.
Yes, Ellen is funny
No favorite. Just Ellen
I don't know
I love Ellen. She is so funny and a pleasure to listen to
Yes, when I enjoy a book I will read it more than once.
It was almost like listening to her on Tv.
I did it in two.
I expected more substance. I enjoy Ellen's humor and conversations on her show, however this contained so many short comments, asides, and unrelated content that it was more a rambling rather than a collection of short life stories with content.
I will download other books of humor, but will not do a repeat of an Ellen book.
I usually enjoy Ellen's presentations and especially her inflections even in this book, but I would not purchase another audio book of hers.
Please no follow-up book, if the content rambles and is as disconnected as this one.
I only listened to the last 1/4 of the book because I feel obligated to finish all books I begin.
No, listening to this book was not time well spent. It was not that funny.
No- I was bored by the book.
Her voice was clear. Her delivery was good. But, the book was boring.
Ellen read it herself
The adult section
When she said we should be kind to everyone.
This book is pretty good and funny and helps your mind to wonder off of the day to day stresses. Chapters are short with different subjects in each one. Not truly a "read" like a regular book, just
typical Ellen pointing out facts about everyday life that are funny!! I love Ellen and her show brightens my day!!!
Not many interesting stories. A couple attempts at humor but not what I expected.
No just on her talk show.
Yes, loved prior works
Love Ellen's comedy and previous books. But this one was like she was writing because she was forced to, for whatever reasons of which I have no clue to guess what they may be.
