Glad I read it, but wasn't expecting it to be so surface.
Liked hearing about Mindy's past and thoughts about key points in her life. You can tell she wrote the book for herself (which can be a good thing!).
So, if you have been wondering, read it. Then go out and listen to Amy Poehler's book.
My god, so wonderful to listen to. Mindy speaks to me (45 married working mom) and my kids (15 year old girl and 10 year old boy). She cracks us all up and has some great insights.
Anything Tina Fey or Amy Poehler.
yes, also GREAT!
if i could have I would have, but it made me look forward to my commute into the City.
Overall I liked the book, but it took me a while to finish because she goes off into various stories and ideas that didn't interest me a lot. She is very funny though and I found myself laughing throughout most of the book.
I was really looking forward to this book but I was left a little disappointed. She was whiny and it was hard to listen to someone who is so successful complain about her life. It didn't leave me warm and fuzzy.
I loved the way Mindy tells simple stories and anecdotes in entertaining ways. It was great to listen to her speak about her experiences as a woman, as a writer on The Office and just navigating through life. There is definitely a lot of humour in this book.
However, I did find that the "collection of essays" format became a little annoying. Mindy has a great voice and gives a good performance, but after a while, short story segments varying in length from 2 to 7 minutes just don't make it a compelling audiobook. I felt myself longing for a longer chapter, more linear storytelling and overall themes.
I think this might be better enjoyed as book as she clearly injects a lot of personality into her writing.Nonetheless it was a very light-hearted, enjoyable experience and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys her comedy!
I enjoyed this book so much because Mindy was exactly as anyone could imagine her to be (having never met her) in real life. I feel like we could be best friends based on this book alone. She talked about herself in such a humorous way that I actually had a smile on my face the ENTIRE time. She talked about things that I have personally thought/wondered about. Personal favorites include the section about "hooking up" and a tribute to hairy chests. Thank you Mindy.
