I didn't expect to like Mindy Kaling's books as much as I do. They are very real and relatable while still being funny and encouraging. Mindy's performance is very good too. Sometimes narrators can really ruin audiobooks but she is great.
I listened to this while power walking and time flew by. I was entertained and can now fit in my skinny jeans. This is like a all night gab fest with your best girlfriend. Love her even more now.
Overall, the author wrote mediocre book about her life. It was fun and upbeat. But I didn't quite connect with it....
It's probably because it's aimed for a younger crowd. If you have a daughter around 16-21 I would recommend this book.
I love Mindy Kaling. She's fabulous, so this is no dig on her whatsoever. I think the mistake is that I read (listened to) Tina Fey's and Amy Poehler's books before this one. "Yes Please" was especially fantastic but both were wonderful. This book was good. I laughed at quite a few lines and appreciated her storytelling. For me it wasn't as compelling as the other two, though. I think I wanted more heart, more real Mindy.
this is a charming and pleasant listen but I found myself craving something...more from what she had to say. loved hearing her story and how she got where she is, but she left out juicy details and golden anecdotal opportunities. in conclusion, it made me smile a lot but I never really laughed out loud
