    "I've experienced a whole lot the last few years and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?" (Ellen DeGeneres)

    Julie says: "Not so much."

    What would have made Seriously...I'm Kidding better?

    There wasn't any rich content. Maybe it was the audiobook and that I wasn't sitting down reading it... but I was bored out of my mind and I don't think I really laughed once. I watch Ellen almost daily, I love her and the charity work she does. I love her family. But this book was just so self-promotional and bleh.

    It's also very self-promotional. She says she's at a point now where she feels totally comfortable with herself and that she's totally happy. But then she leaves it at that. Or she'll talk about being a supermodel with Covergirl... and you expect her to say something like


    What was most disappointing about Ellen DeGeneres’s story?

    It wasn't really a story. There are 55 chapters and most of them are pure random. I love silly humor but this didn't meet the mark. She does a chapter on falling asleep and another on meditation (these are supposed to be funny) and I seriously almost fell asleep while driving.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ellen DeGeneres’s performances?

    I enjoy her show and her causes, just not this book.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I love it when she talks about her wife. You can tell she really loves her.


    Any additional comments?

    I just wish is was better! I had high hopes, I'm always calling Ellen the next Oprah.
