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.

    "Very fun and funny"
    If you could sum up Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, endearing, and instructive!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Two favorites: the rules on being your best friend's roommate (which were totally the same rules I had with my best-friend roommate), and her comments on married people being pals. Fun book. I love Mindy Kaling.

    "Sharp and well written"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) to be better than the print version?

    I like the audio version better than the print version for this book since Mindy is reading her book so you get her tone and inflections.


    Any additional comments?

    Except for seeing Mindy on TV, I didn't know much about her background. She had a traditional childhood although with exceptional parents as role models and good family support throughout her career. She seems well grounded and upbeat with a healthy value system. I hope teen age girls will read or listen to her book. It's well written, witty and sharp.

    Story
    "Enjoyable bio"

    Add this to the list of enjoyable, quasi-autobiographical works by comedians like Steve Martin, Tina Fey, Samantha Bee, and Ellen DeGeneres. Not as laugh-out-loud humorous (like Bee's or Fey's) but more genuinely autobiographical like Martin's. Any fan of the Office or modern humor in general would get a kick out of it.

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

    For genre,right next to BossyPants and Born Standing Up


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mindy- This is not a good question for this type of book which is obviously written by her about her life and career choices. Still she was very upbeat even while giving a bit of advice with humor kicked in.


    Which character – as performed by Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur – was your favorite?

    Same question as above??? Although I loved Michael Schur's obituary- outrageous


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    This is not a book for a film.


    Any additional comments?

    Mindy Kaling is one intelligent, hysterical writer who comes from an upper class family and has a tremendous sense of humor about her time at Dartmouth, being Indian and her strong will. I'd love to be her friend.

    PS Why have you started asking these questions in your reviews? Is what we just think not enough to encourage or discourage future readers? I do not care for the format as some of the questions do not apply to the book you are reviewing. Sorry.

    "Not worth it."
    Would you try another book from Mindy Kaling and/or Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ?

    no


    What could Mindy Kaling have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Made the story more interesting.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ’s performances?

    Probably not.


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

    I didn't finish it.


    Any additional comments?

    I know that Mindy is not Tina Fey. But Tina set the bar so high. This book was so boring that I did not even finish it. I suggest buying Bossypants or anything by David Sedaris instead.

    "really great for what it is"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would highly recommend it. She's not a fully grown woman looking back on her life and career. She's a 32 year old trying to figure things out... like the rest of us. It's funny. She's a celebrity, but also very based in reality.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)?

    Her stories about being a celebrity that isn't stereotypically beautiful.


    Have you listened to any of Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Love The Office.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book.

    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!

    What did you like best about this story?

    Hearing about Mindy's childhood and her early career.


    Have you listened to any of Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to any of her other performances, but I have to say that I love her voice. It's very friendly, happy and so distinctive that I can still hear her narration, even after finishing the book.
