I became a fan of Miranda by watching her tv show "Miranda". She brings her special warm brand of humor to this audible book. Silliness abounds but much of it I can relate to as a sort of misfit myself.
I usually listen to my audible books for one chapter before I go to sleep but this book I found myself listening at all of the times of the 2 days it took to finish it. I enjoyed it so much!
This is by far my very favorite audiobook thus far. Ever.
Well Miranda. Not 18 year old Miranda, the current one. You'll get it.
Her delivery is so much better by listening - it's like hanging out with her.
There were moments that were so funny, I had to pull my car over. I literally almost crashed my car on I-90 (on Snoqualmie Pass to be precise) because I was laughing so very hard that I could not breathe and I didn't want to crash into the car next to me. Yeah, it is side-spittingly funny. From the very first chapter she will have you in stitches.
Miranda, I'm your new best friend. We just haven't met yet. Everything you talked about, I was nodding like a fool and saying repeatedly "yep! yes, yes I've been there! yes!" From Christmas to dating, dead end jobs to far fetched dreams. This is superb. From one single girl with a dog and a dream to another, thank you so much for this amazing book. I love it. I'll listen again and again.
i'd recommend this book to those already familiar with Miranda's style of humour.
Silliness! An enjoyable light listen.
I wanted to like it but it just wasn't very funny to me.
Somewhat amusing, but not anything that really stood out as hilarious.
I could have done without even listening to it.
Those of the UK audience may relate to it more?
I read about the reviews saying the young Miranda voice was annoying and decided to still give it a try and then also thought it became annoying.
It really is just her! Funny and engaging.
Obvious answer here I would think!
If I was reading this I would hear it in Miranda's voice, but the reality is better!
It was, but I did it in bite sizes.
I don't think this is the 'real' Miranda, the book is more fiction feeling than reality - but thoroughly enjoyed it nonetheless.
I would recommend this book it is lighthearted and just a feelgood book.
I loved the dialog between the authors current self and eighteen year old self. As well as the dialog between her and her dog Peggy.
I loved everything about it she was energetic and it felt you where on a lunch date with her having a conversation.
This book made me laugh out loud multiple times.
Okay, so I am a fan of Miranda Hart. And this book and performance doesn't disappoint. I haven't read the paper copy of this, but I can't help but feel that you must miss something if you don't get the joy of Miranda Hart's delivery of her own words. Of course, I might be biased, so sometime I'll have to pick up a copy.
While this is a book about life lessons, and - as she calls them - the 'little moments', it manages to be thoughtful without being preachy. It's also very humorous, and full of the nearly-mortifying anecdotes I expect from Miranda Hart. The device of the narrator speaking to her younger self is also very effective, and somehow, the 2 characters are clearly distinguished to the listener - truly a show of Miranda's talent.
It's a wonderful listen, and I can't recommend it enough.
Miranda Hart is funny, funny, funny. Laugh out loud funny. Brilliant listen. Absolutely recommend this audio book.
I'm an avid reader of many genres and issues. Audiobooks sometimes bring books into 3D , and when that happens its brilliant!
Only 38 years old when is is written and nothing much in one sense to write about except she is a very funny woman. The trick of speaking to her 18 year old self is illuminating, and carries some great insights into growing up. Her humour is very "British", and a sense of the absurd in everyday experiences. Great fun!
