    "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)

    R. Strauss says: "Exactly what you would expect from Ellen"

    Would you try another book from Ellen DeGeneres and/or Ellen DeGeneres?

    I would be reluctant to.


    What was most disappointing about Ellen DeGeneres’s story?

    This book was not that funny! I love Ellen, and I find her career to be inspirational. However, this book was unstructured, not funny, and lacked in content as well. She didn't seem to share much at all in this book.


    Have you listened to any of Ellen DeGeneres’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Was Seriously...I'm Kidding worth the listening time?

    I would have rather saved my credit.

  • Where'd You Go, Bernadette: A Novel

    Story
    (2272)

    Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom.

    Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette's intensifying allergy to Seattle - and people in general - has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands.

    S says: "One of my top 10 listens of the year!"
    "very fun listen"

    If you could sum up Where'd You Go, Bernadette in three words, what would they be?

    cute, funny, smart


    Any additional comments?

    It's an intriguing and captivating story, with many twists and turns. It made a lot of train rides much more enjoyable.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Warren says: "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"
    "funny and uplifting"

    Any additional comments?

    I listened to this book during my train rides to and from work, and more than once laughed out loud in spite of my best efforts to contain myself. Tina Fey is so funny, and this book is pretty awesome. It was great to get some insights into her career and success. Highly recommend!
