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.

    "4 starts even though it falls flat"

    The first half of the book I was laughing so hard I was crying, but then if slowly started fading. Even though the end was flat I would recommend.

    "Ok for her first book"

    This book follows the formula of other recent autobiographies by women in comedy or female screenwriters, but what Mindy shares of her life experience isn't as robust as the others, and she keeps the reader at arm's length. The book has its moments, but was definitely something Mindy was advised do in advance of pitching the "Mindy Project." Her next book might be less formulaic and probably a better, more insightful read.

    "Random stories, but told quite funnily"

    Mindy is very funny and I enjoyed both learning more about how she thinks and just outright laughing at her humor.

    The story isn't really a story, but mix of stories and random thoughts. If you're looking for a full on story, this isn't it. If you're looking for a good laugh, a bit of honest stories, and mostly be entertained, this is your book.

    Also, Mindy, you are not the only woman that thinks it's weird/gross to go commando.

    "Lacks Substance and Humor! Waste of Time!"

    I expected more from this author as I have always enjoyed the character this author plays on TV. The book is a complete waste of time and substance as the author complains about her life. The author does nothing but rant on negatively throughout the entire book.

    "just get it now"

    It had me in stitches at the gym and I burned 2000 more calories imagining Mindy's misadventures. The writing is just as good as you'd imagine it would be coming from one of the funniest Office writers. If you loved the Office and hatred her character, get it now!

    "Great but too short"

    I love her humor and just her over-all awesome personality.
    Wish it could have been longer, looks like I'll have to listen to her other book :)

    "Loved it!"
