Yes, Mindy narrating made this book!
Funny, easy, short. Perfect for a day at the beach as long as you don't mind laughing out loud.
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.

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 connect to it and MIndy Kaling reads her book very personably. I absolutely love the way she describes her experiences and opinions. Some are bold but they are not as offensive.
Top 3, for sure!
The realness shared is amazing, and it's delivered in the most hilarious way possible. I love a girl who can make fun of herself!
Glad to be part of the audible community and I hope that my reviews help to choose the right book and share my love of reading.
Probably not. Some sections are funny , most is missed comedy. Mindy Kaling although fun on TV, does not come through in her own book. It's all somewhat flat!
nothing, someone else should have read the book
would not recommend
Yes, it is funny and insightful. The fact that it is read by Mindy, makes the listener appreciate the content even more. One can feel a true connection to her writing.

I enjoy reading. I live in my car. I hope to laugh, think and reflect. Hoping audible helps me get there.
It was so easy to listen to. Mindy was easy to listen to and her stories are entertaining.
She is just so real..
Yes but I had to be a parent sometimes.
Mindy, if you read this, we should hang out.
