I listened to "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?" right before "Bossypants" and honestly they seemed like the same book… the same book that wasn't even really great the first time.
For a really good autobiography I recommend "Stories I Only Tell My Friends"
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.
If you're a fan of Mindy Kaling, you will eat up this book. It's hilarious, smart, and honest: perfect for an audiobook.
I never watched the office, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Mindy Kaling is a good writer, and tells the story well. I have a lot of books to read and listen to, so I don't think I would listen to this again -- but I plan to listen to her next book for sure.
I love her description of herself - she's humble, funny and endearing.
Your friend, Mindy
This isn't a literary tome -- it's just shear entertainment. I liked it very much. Go Mindy!
