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.

    "It's Cute..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    This was a painless, entertaining way to spend commuting to work for a couple days... Mindy tells her stories, in a fun and funny way that will make you half-smile. Not earth shattering, not riveting, not poignant, just nice.

    "Kaling love"

    I love Mindy so I tried not to hate her book. It was interesting and had some funny parts and it wasn't too long so I didn't feel like she dragged on with pointless topics. It's a good read for a road trip.

    "Not what I expected"

    I love Mindy but I think I had higher expectations of this book actually being funny. And it of course had its moments. I thoroughly enjoyed it but don't buy it if you just want to laugh a whole lot.

    "Fun, light read"

    This book was definitely entertaining, but not necessarily a "must read". Mindy is fun to listen to however, and if you are a lover of The Office, there are fun references and behind the scenes stories here and there.

    "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.
