Yes- I would recommend it to young women that want to hear funny insights on all things that girls think about.
Mindy storming out of the Office writing session to get her nails done only to come back out of fear of getting fired.
It's always better to hear it in her voice because it sounds like I'm just listening to one of my friends rambling on.
If I only had the time-- I would.
I would say its a book for young women-- not to say others won't enjoy it, but they may find the content immature and without direction.
I loved this book! I very rarely listen to a book more than once, I listened twice and now "obsessed" with Minday! I had no expectations, listened to Bossy Pants, etc and didn't really know much about Mindy and was surprised how much I really related to so much in this book! I wish I had this book in high school - and I want my daughter when she is older to listen to this. Mindy is very confident and astute about the deal with highschool, also her confident stand of loving the tradition of marriage and her closeness to her parents.
This was easy to listen to and I found her very witty. I'm ready for her next one!!
One of my top favorites along with Andy Cohen, Rachel Dratch and Jenn Lancaster
everything was really funny. i like the way it all tied together
every chapter was really funny but I loved when she talked about her childhood.
Great, entertaining audibook if you like Mindy Kahling. Her show the The Mindy Project is amazing!!! If you like Mindy Kahling on the Office, this audiobook is a million times better.
The best part of the book was the fact that Mindy narrated it herself. Her reading the book is very conversational and not stiff at all.
It is one of my top 5.
The eulogy written by her friend-so funny!!
Mindy herself-she is delightful.
Not really-the book was nothing more and nothing less than I wanted: a light-hearted and hilarious memoir.
This book had all the sass and humor of Tiny Fey's but without the heavy-handed liberal ranting.
I would absolutely listen to this book again. Mindy speaks exactly what she's thinking, which is refreshing. She didn't hold back and it was awesome! If I wasn't listening to her book while sitting in L.A. traffic, my nights would have been super boring.
Mindy - she is honest, funny, charming and smart.
It gave a nice twist to the audio book - it helped to visulize the situations they were reading about and made it feel like you watching a show!
I liked Mindy's performance. It was a little odd when Michael Schur would read because out of nowhere here's this guys voice after a long time of listening to hers. It wasn't bad necessarily just kind of weird and throws you out of the story for a second.
No, but I related to her in a lot of ways. Specially when she's talking about being fat as a kid and having people make fun of her.
This is a good, lightly entertaining book. I sort of hoped to laugh a bit more, but her story was still good enough that I didn't mind the slower comedy.
Love this site! I have a very busy job, so listening to audio books enables me to keep up on great stories!
Mindy is beyond hilarious. The content, how she talks, her phrasing, being fearless, she is just awesome.
I loved each and every tale. The lists she gives are hilarious. Listen to it and listen again. Well worth it!!!
I do think this audiobook is worth the time, because it's short and is a quick listen.
The most interesting aspect of the book is when Kaling talks about autobiographical information - her experiences growing up and in college, starting out in the writing business, writing "Matt & Ben" and working for SNL. The least interesting are the random filler sections where she essentially inserts blog posts and lists of things in her book.
There weren't really any "characters" in this book, and it was essentially all about the author, so ... Mindy Kaling.
No, there's not really enough there to make a movie, but I do watch her sitcom, so close enough?
I got this book on audio because I like hearing books read by the authors themselves, especially those who are already performers/storytellers. However, due to the format of the book I actually wished I had just read it. The chapters where Kaling talks about her life experiences are great on audio, but portions of the books are more random, blog-like chapters including one about photos from her Blackberry (with the photos included in the physical book). It is hard to appreciate these chapters in audio form.
I have never watched The Office nor anything by Mindy, but I picked this book up after listening to Tina Fey's Bossypants (which I really enjoyed). Minidy herself is funny and loveable, and the book was definitely an easy listen. However, I don't think I'd pay full price for this book again. It was somewhat generic and there was nothing that made me think much or left me wanting to hear more. Her narration was great and she has a very animated voice, but the content wasn't there.
