Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) | [Mindy Kaling]

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)

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?”

Publisher's Summary

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?”

Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!

In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.

    "Disappointed"

    I learned a lot about this actress/writer. I felt she was too young and without a lot of life experience to be writing a book. Her life story is not real compelling. I think the intent of this book was to be funny although she has a dry sense of humor and the narration was sort of monotone making the jokes subtle. I guess I was expecting laugh out loud humor or an interesting story. Sorry Mindy.

    "Mindy is so fun and relatable"

    I recommend this book to any gal who was born between 1975 to 1990! I like how each chapter can stand alone as its own short story.

    "Underwhelming"
    What did you like best about Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)? What did you like least?

    Mindy is definitely a character. She seems like a good and nice woman more than willing to sharing her life experience with others. Much of what she says is empowering for men and women that feel like their unique voice doesn't "belong".


    Has Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. I much prefer "Bossypants" and "Yes, Please!". Both are far more interesting and funnier.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Probably the parts where she talked about working on The Office and SNL.


    Could you see Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I hope not.


    Any additional comments?

    Book was good. Mindy Kaling is just a weird bird. Her sense of humor just isn't for me. She is truly the definition of what an "Awkward Girl" is. As stated above I much prefer Tina Fey's and Amy Poehler's books as they did a much better job giving an overview of their careers and weaving in advice. I wanted to know how she got to where she is and she glossed over so many of the details and made her Comedic "bits" in the book far more elaborate.

    Clearly she was more interested in doing bits than telling you her personal story.

    But that's ok, it's the book she wanted to write, but it just wasn't for me. I feel like she is a fine Comedic Actress/Writer/Director/Producer but her sense of humor was far too off the wall for me.

    But if you're into that, read/listen to this book. Her overall performance is quite entertaining.

    "I Love Mindy!!!"

    She is my favorite and this book did not disappoint. Ironically I listened to it at the gym while working out and trying to get skinny, meanwhile she's in my ear listing names for fat folks.

    Refreshing, funny and delightful. Well done Mindy Kailing. I especially liked the chapters on best friends, being average sized and marriage.
