I greatly appreciate Mindy Kaling. She is intelligent, HILARIOUS and has finally provided a role model for people like her! She is not how you'd expect as she perfectly points out in her book; she mentions how people would expect her to be the spelling bee champ, when in reality she's just a normal girl with a hilarious and creative mind!
Mindy is funny. Very funny. I thought I would love the book as much as I like her performances.
The book however is a bit all over the place and hard to follow. It was a lot of similarities to Yes please. But not as funny as it.
I guess I do not understand why celebrities write books. It seems like they are just jumbled memories written down.
Greedy, voracious reader since age five. After a number of eye injuries & surgeries, reading is hard. So now, I listen.
When writing dialogue for an established character, Ms. Kaling is insightful, fearless, hilarious, and just nails it every time. I think she's a fantastic comic actress.
But this book, musings on her life...I wasn't tempted to laugh even once. Skip it!
Read Martin Short's book for interesting backstage stories and belly laughs.
I haven't seen any of Mindy's work. I listened to this as it was in the recommendations list after I listened to Tina Fey's Bossy Pants and Ellen Degeneres Seriously I'm Kidding, both of which I found funnier and overall more enjoyable. Maybe it is unfair comparison to Mindy but I expected her book to be funnier.
