Well, considering it's my first audiobook, I'd say it's number 1. But I feel, as if it was my 1000th audio book, it would be in the top five! I laughed so hard. I think having Mindy read it made it so much funnier than if I read it myself.
How completely adjacent it was to my own humor.
I've been a Mindy Project watcher. . . religiously. And now I have more insight into her jokes on the show. Loved it.
The Girl With No Tattoo, haha
No because I don't recommend books with inappropriate content.
All of her characters are funny.
Like I said it was a funny book and entertaining to listen to because Mindy Kahling is talented, I just wouldn't recommend it because of inappropriate content.
Yes! I have listened to it many times and continue to enjoy. Mindy does an excellent job to writing about herself in a funny yet informing manner.
The book just isn't interesting.The topics are mundane and she lacks the absolute humor to pull it off. I know she is a witty and successful person, but she should've waited until she had something more substantive to say before writing a book . There is a "selfie" section, for Pete's sake. It reminded me of listening to that one self-prescribed funny friend drone on and on.
Not at all - I'll just stick to authors who have been around longer.
The performance itself was fine, I guess.
Disappointment that I wasted a credit on this, then relief because it is so short.
This was a good listen. You'll get to know Mindy on a different level than the character of Kelly. Not that I ever thought Mindy would be anything thing like her character on The Office, but she is much more dynamic. Mindy is obviously a talented writer, and listening to this book, rather than reading, really helped the performance part of it come across. Mindy is a great narrator and grabs you with her story (although Micheal Schur's random interjections didn't quite fit in for me).
Worth the listen.
Mindy obviously- she's hilarious. Every chapter was so fun to listen to.
It made me laugh pretty hard.
You know those random thoughts that bounce around in your head? Mindy Kaling has put them down in this book and makes you laugh at them. Not just laugh, but stare at them under the microscope, so you realize that everyone has similar random thoughts and those thoughts are RIDICULOUS. None of us are as funny, dumb, fat, skinny or bright as we thought we were and we basically have no idea where we will end up. Just enjoy the ride and LAUGH.
When I die, put my ashes into an hourglass at a comedy club. When people ask about it, the staff can say, "That's Lindsay doing 5 minutes."
The best way to describe this book is: "Fun!"
Don't expect anything overwhelmingly 'deep' from this one. Topics include grade school friendships and dramas, camp tales, weight loss, weight gain, her love of trendy diets, parents, the photoshoot process, a bad LA neighborhood, The Office, being a comedy writer, SNL, guys, dating, and more. I mean this all in a good way though-- sometimes a light, fun listen is just what you need. Mindy's stories, lists, recounts, and essays are all interesting and amusing. This book was just a good time!
I loved her stories about The Office and her brief guest writer's spot on SNL. Also, as someone who would like to do the same, I enjoyed hearing about her move to New York.
To give them titles, my favorites are 'The Amy Poehler Story' and 'Mindy vs. The Sample Sizes'. I'm not giving anything away!
I just don't think this lady has enough experience to write such a memoir. A lot of it was about funniest moments in comedy that she wanted to recount. This should be more of a podcast. She's no Tina Fey (yet?).
