I love Mindy Kaling, and her book did not disappoint. She provided great stories told in a witty, sassy way.
I was a little disappointed that the book didn't come with a .pdf so that we could view the photos that are included in the hardcover book. Tina Fey's book had a .pdf that could be downloaded through audible. I feel like I'm missing out on fun Mindy Kaling photos.
Overall though, a very entertaining and quick listen. I work from a home office by myself so it's always nice to have friendly and fun voices in the background. I look forward to Mindy's next book.
I didn't know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised with this. It's really easy listen and like Mindy said if you're listening to this for months something is wrong. I've already listened to it twice and will probably listen to it again. I really enjoyed this, and look forward to Mindy's next book!
Mindy would be my friend if I knew her. I guess that would make me Mavis. No, wait, I'd be the Mindy and she'd have to be the Mavis!
I recently finished "Bossypants" by Tina Fey and "I Know I Am But What Are You?" by Samantha Bee. My library was in need of a witty memoir, and Mindy Kaling was there to fulfill my audio book needs. Delightfully funny. Interesting and introspective. All that good stuff.
Mindy Kaling has a genuineness and charming quality that makes you leave the book wishing you were pals and feeling that if you were, she'd be the best kind.
The book is charming and sweet, though a little light. She throws in some backstory on her rise and behind the scenes anecdotes, but they don't dominate the book. It's on the shorter side of an audiobook, so it felt more like fun, quippy conversation.
She's a great narrator. (it is about her, after all). If you liked Bossypants, then you'll enjoy this too.
Mindy is hysterical and I love her stories! Her stories are so relate-able and filled with humor. I love the way she views things. I am so happy I got this book.
Witt and humor.
Yes, if this is what Audible thinks of as funny
That wouldn't have fixed it. It was the material.
Anger and disappointment.
Mindy Kaling explains how she got to be a TV writer and actor. Problem is, she leaves out all humor. It sounds more like a sorority girl bragging to her frenemy at the reunion. Save your money.
It would take a lot of convincing and a promise of something better to try another.
I purchased it expecting laugh out loud humour and a light hearted story. There wasn't really a story and I barely smiled.
