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

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.

    Good. I feel like Mindy and I have little in common, but we'd get along well.

    "Not that interesting"

    This book is too much like Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's books, just not as funny... It is all about some trivial episodes in Mindy's life. Lacks originality

    "Hilariously relatable"

    I greatly appreciate Mindy Kaling. She is intelligent, HILARIOUS and has finally provided a role model for people like her! She is not how you'd expect as she perfectly points out in her book; she mentions how people would expect her to be the spelling bee champ, when in reality she's just a normal girl with a hilarious and creative mind!

    "Entertaining enough"

    This was a moderately entertaining book, enjoyed Mindy Kaling's sense of humor. Would probably not read again though. Recommend for a quick read.

    "Very much like Yes please"

    Mindy is funny. Very funny. I thought I would love the book as much as I like her performances.

    The book however is a bit all over the place and hard to follow. It was a lot of similarities to Yes please. But not as funny as it.

    "not a fan"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I guess I do not understand why celebrities write books. It seems like they are just jumbled memories written down.


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

    yes

    Greedy, voracious reader since age five. After a number of eye injuries & surgeries, reading is hard. So now, I listen.

    "'The Mindy Project"---YES! This book---NO!!"

    When writing dialogue for an established character, Ms. Kaling is insightful, fearless, hilarious, and just nails it every time. I think she's a fantastic comic actress.
    But this book, musings on her life...I wasn't tempted to laugh even once. Skip it!
    Read Martin Short's book for interesting backstage stories and belly laughs.

    "It's okay."

    I haven't seen any of Mindy's work. I listened to this as it was in the recommendations list after I listened to Tina Fey's Bossy Pants and Ellen Degeneres Seriously I'm Kidding, both of which I found funnier and overall more enjoyable. Maybe it is unfair comparison to Mindy but I expected her book to be funnier.
