Science writer in America's heartland
A light read, and especially funny read by the author. I liked hearing about how she worked her way to success in Hollywood.
Addicted to Audible since 2009
She seems extremely educated and she is very funny. She also does a great job narrating her own book as her voice is semi-annoying but in a humorous, cute way. I really enjoyed listening to this title. Love her take on movies, music and creating lists.
No. Unless, of course, I suddenly became deeply interested in the inner workings of the mind of a middle school girl.
I love Mindy Kaling in The Office, but listening to her voice for 4 hours is like a mild form of torture.
No because, quite frankly, Mindy Kaling is just not interesting. The book starts off witty and entertaining and about halfway through, the whole thing loses steam and then towards the end there is an ENTIRE CHAPTER about how annoying it is when it takes a long time for a guy to tie his shoes. Obviously her comedic writing doesn't translate well into an entire book and a second one would be the worst idea since....well, since Mindy Kaling decided to write a first book.
This seems like its written by someone who still believes in unicorns and whose favorite color is
My commute is long and the audiobooks are longer. Brevity is not my strong suit. @alyssahoman
I plan on listening to this often. Mindy is honest, relatable and incredibly smart.
I love autobiographies in general but what makes this one stand out is Mindy. She's definitely a unique personalty with an interesting perspective and voice.
Mindy's performance was a bit flat at first compared to her usual persona but she seems to relax into it as it goes on and it's not detrimental to the story. Mike Schur is always a delight to hear.
Less of a moment and more of a theme. It's genuinely nice to hear from a comedian/writer that you don't have to come from some sort of broken childhood to accomplish things. I related a lot to her childhood. She loves her family, excelled academically and was a bit socially awkward. Her love for her friends and family was very relatable and her delivery is so forthright and honest. There's a lot of life experience to learn from and a lot of poignant messages.
Also check out The Mindy Project. ;)
I love reading. For a long time, I snubbed audio books like so many others. How wrong and misguided I was.
Honest and relatable
Great performance. It was like I was sitting next to her as she told me about her life.
Laughed out loud while at work
I enjoyed Mindy's funny personality, it was like listening to a friend tell me funny stories! If you're in the mood for a light, easy listen this book is for you.
Say something about yourself!
I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this book! Mindy is a hoot. She is just like her character in The Mindy Project. You will be at the very least giggling every minute you listen. A real nice bonus is she narrates the book herself.
Where Are You, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea! - Same humor (sometimes dry, dark, inappropriate, etc.).
I'm sorry to say but this book FAILED.... Mindy is not funny, her show (The mindy project) while somewhat entertaining is NOT funny.... In the book she was incoherent and her trying to be funny resulted in me feeling frustrated that I bought it.... The only good thing about this book is that it's short...
tried to use a voice to specify the tones....
that it was short
If she was the narrator yes, but not listen to her opinions since they are not for me.
It might have been better if I were 15 years younger? It just wasn't very funny. I never laughed once. At one point she references an obscure list of scenes from shows that she thinks are funny. I youtubed some, and they were funny, so laughed then, but I am not sure if I can give her credit for those laughs.
It wasn't very funny. It's seemed like an open call for her to try and "catch a man". Why did she list her dating requirements?
Her performance was fine.
The only character is Mindy
Skip this and listen to Bossy Pants again.
