audiobooks read by the author are the best and mindy kaling is the best! most audiobooks annoy me cause the readers either read too slowly or aren't the right reader for the book. I'm used to this american life type storytelling with a natural flow of delivery and I don't find most audiobooks to be this way, so I enjoyed this a lot since it didn't feel like she was reading her memoir back to me.
I wanted to laugh, but just didn't hear anything funny or relatable.
The casting was fine.
The book was very skimpy, and Mindy came across as a spoiled, privileged brat. Just because you can publish a memoir doesn't mean you should. Maybe if she'd waited another 10 years, she'd have more to say, but here, I just couldn't relate to her and didn't find her musings funny. Especially dull were her exercise fantasies. I got the impression that her coworkers find her insufferable as well.
I felt like I was hanging out with one of my best girl friends while listening to this book. Can't go wrong hanging with Mindy.
Mindy's got personality and it's fun to hear someone's story who is unapologetic herself. she's a great comedic writer. she's got a few chapters that are useful observational insights on small things guys can do to stand out, and being pals in a marriage.
Well, considering it's my first audiobook, I'd say it's number 1. But I feel, as if it was my 1000th audio book, it would be in the top five! I laughed so hard. I think having Mindy read it made it so much funnier than if I read it myself.
How completely adjacent it was to my own humor.
I've been a Mindy Project watcher. . . religiously. And now I have more insight into her jokes on the show. Loved it.
The Girl With No Tattoo, haha
No because I don't recommend books with inappropriate content.
All of her characters are funny.
Like I said it was a funny book and entertaining to listen to because Mindy Kahling is talented, I just wouldn't recommend it because of inappropriate content.
Yes! I have listened to it many times and continue to enjoy. Mindy does an excellent job to writing about herself in a funny yet informing manner.
The book just isn't interesting.The topics are mundane and she lacks the absolute humor to pull it off. I know she is a witty and successful person, but she should've waited until she had something more substantive to say before writing a book . There is a "selfie" section, for Pete's sake. It reminded me of listening to that one self-prescribed funny friend drone on and on.
Not at all - I'll just stick to authors who have been around longer.
The performance itself was fine, I guess.
Disappointment that I wasted a credit on this, then relief because it is so short.
