I was enjoying it until she casually used an offensive slur that didn't add anything to the anecdote. If you can get past that, it was an enjoyable listen.
There were several points in this book where I snickered, and some where I full-out belly laughed, because she notices things that I think no one else ever does.
For anyone who has ever felt a little insecure, Mindy helps you realize that you're not alone in wondering "Is everyone hanging out without me? (And other concerns)"
If you like Mindy Kaling you'll love this book. Super funny, I laughed aloud several times. Light and fun book. I'm super stoked for her next book after listening to this one! An inspiration to feeling normal in your own skin with all of your weird quarks and lack of knowing what is cool.
In addition to being hilarious, the book seemed authentic, very non phoned-in if that makes sense.
I also recommend the audio version, and for those who have told me you can't handle her voice, $+&% you!
Everyone should read this, even if it's only to solidify your love for Mindy. There are some truly important truths that I think everyone can benefit from hearing.
Before reading this book I watched the Mindy Project, knew Mindy wrote part of the office and thought she was hilarious in general. Then reading this book I laughed to myself probably weirdly from an outsiders point of view every time I turned the page and it was awesome. Mindy is awesome. And I wish I was her.
