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.

    "Awesome!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this audio book. Mindy Kaling is a great narrator, she is funny, insightful, charming and adorable. Her book is great, full of funny incidents from Mindy's life and it has a lot of useful advice in my opinion.


    What does Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I wouldn't have been able to capture her voice in the story had I read it on my own. Now when I read her actual book, I can better tell how she wanted certain things to get across.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have yes, but I didn't have that time to.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to buy her actual book, it was that great.

    I loved the stories from Mindy's life that I could relate to. Even the ones that I could not were told with such honesty and humor that I thoroughly enjoyed them.

    Mindy cracks me up throughout. I particularly loved the stories from her childhood.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book and think Mindy offers an honest, realistic and pretty
    wholesome perspective that other women can relate to younger women can look up to.

    Well narrated, she is funny, and reads very conversationally, like a great girlfriend.


    What else would you have wanted to know about Mindy Kaling’s life?

    Maybe more about her early acting in college.

    A nice, light book.

    Story
    "Extremely Likeable"
    What made the experience of listening to Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) the most enjoyable?

    The stories. Awkward teenage-years and lack-of-hookup-skills stories are always entertaining to me. It was also interesting to hear how she got her start with Matt & Ben.


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

    Why do boys take so long to put on their shoes?


    What does Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mindy's voice, which is extremely familiar, from the office. When there's a dialogue, Michael does the other voice so that's useful. I did not like that she mentioned pictures that are not included with the audiobook.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    "Completely surpassed my expectations"
    What made the experience of listening to Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) the most enjoyable?

    I listened to this on a long solo drive down the eastern seaboard and it made the time melt away. Something fresh and new about her approach which I found both entertaining and appealing. The honesty in which she shares her lifestory is engaging, relateable and very funny. She's a smart girl who doesn't play dumb, but uses a natural naivete and interest in pop culture to acheive her interesting brand of humor. I really enjoyed sharing her world for a few hours.
