    Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

    Where does Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty well...I think its clear she doesn't narrate for a living, but what do you expect? I do really like the book, still.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ?

    yes.


    Any additional comments?

    She's really funny and proposes hilarious questions that I sympathized with. All in all, definitely worth it!

    Meet Tali, Schuyler, and Kim. Best friends since college, each 20-something (okay, almost 30) has seen her share of career foils and romantic foibles in the world's greatest city, New York. Having been friends for more than a decade, they know that they all need a change. On Valentine's Day, they are each alone for one reason or another. At dinner together, the trio makes a pact. Within one year, each woman will change the thing that most challenges her. Chasing Harry Winston brings listeners once again into the heart of an elite world....

    If you could sum up Chasing Harry Winston in three words, what would they be?

    Glam, Ridiculous, Funny


    What did you like best about this story?

    the three different women kept the story interesting.


    Which character – as performed by Charlotte Parry – was your favorite?

    Audriana, in terms of performance. Charlotte's Brazilian accent is amazing.


    Any additional comments?

    Not as good as the Devil Wears Prada, but I did like this and I really liked the voices Charlotte Parry does. I'm a narration snob, so that's a lot coming from me.

    Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, is hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the successful editor of Runway magazine. Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, Andrea begins to realize that the job a million girls would die for may just kill her. And even if she survives, she has to decide whether the job is worth the price of her soul.

    Would you listen to The Devil Wears Prada again? Why?

    Yes. For several reasons. Firstly, I love this type of chick lit. I am driving at least 3 hours daily, so I love good escapism chick lit, especially the glitz and glam ones. Anything with designer names and NYC in it, I'll buy. Also, I am an assistant and used to have a similar job to Andrea, so I totally related to this.


    What does Bernadette Dunne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice and inflection is fantastic!


    Any additional comments?

    I seriously loved this book. I don't often relisten to books, but I definitely will with this one. I'm big on good narration and think Bernadette Dunne is the best!

    Molly Somerville knows she has a reputation for trouble. She did give away her $15-million inheritance, but, hey, nobody's perfect. Yes, Molly's happy about almost everything...except her long-term crush on the daredevil quarterback for the Chicago Stars. That awful, gorgeous Kevin Tucker, a man who can't even remember her name! One night, Molly's penchant for running into trouble runs her right into Kevin himself, turning her world upside down.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Maybe reading it, but I am never listening to this woman again.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anna Fields?

    Bernadette Dunne.


    Any additional comments?

    I took a shot on this book based on all the comments and the rave reviews of the narration, which I'm really picky with. I couldn't pre-listen to a sample, so I went with it as it's so well-reviewed, but I am really wishing I had saved a credit on this. Her voice is so clinical and old, the voices she does of kids are great, but her general narration detracts from the actual story. FYI- I love the narration of Bernadette Dunne and Rosalyn Landor, so if you do too, and narration is a big deal to you- AVOID this!
