Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) | [Mindy Kaling]

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.

    "Mindy Kaling narrates and it is hilarious"
    What made the experience of listening to Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) the most enjoyable?

    Mindy Kaling narrates her own audiobook which makes it awesome. Plus, she personalizes the audiobook which is different from the other audiobooks I've listened to. She leaves out part of a chapter in her original book, so I would also recommend buying a written/Kindle version so that you can see the pictures she sometimes references to. But, I would say the audio version is way more delightful than the book. I highly recommend it!

    Story
    "Fan of Mindy's TV Show... But Not of This Book..."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The structure and chronology of the anecdotes. Maybe a monologue of incongruent rambling stories works somewhere, but for me - not in a loose biography with comedic moments sprinkled in between stories that were that interesting, and feeling like a long, run-on sentence... I liked hearing how Mindy got to where she is... but I really had to make an effort to continue to listen... it was so dull in some places, I was gratefully distracted by the chores I was doing... when I listened to the book alone, I started daydreaming and dozing off... rather than being immersed in the text.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    More adjectives?


    Did Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Somewhat


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Not likely


    Any additional comments?

    I still love 'The Mindy Project' and admire Mindy and her achievements in NYC as a comedic writer and actress.

    "Very entertaining!"
    Where does Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Along the same lines as Chelsea Handler and Tina Fey, her stories about being a female in comedy and show business are fantastic.


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

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    Mindy is quick and witty. Very funny and very entertaining.

    This book was a very light, easy listen. I would recommend listening to this book. Mindy Kaling is very funny and comes across as someone you would like to hang out with.


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

    I would have listened to this all at once!

    "Funny....but not Tina Fey funny."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    This was a pretty entertaining audiobook - if you're a fan of Mindy in real life, you'll definitely enjoy this. Funny, quippy essays that probably appeal more to a female fanbase. Mindy actually addresses the one big problem with this in the first essay - this is NOT Tina Fey's "Bossypants". While Mindy acknowledges that, it doesn't change the fact this just isn't as good as Bossypants - not as funny, interesting, or more appealing to a wide range of people. If you're already a Mindy Kaling fan, go for it. If you're not...try Tina Fey first.

    "Even better because she is narrator!"
    If you could sum up Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, Likeable, Chic


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mindy, she narrated and did a great job doing so.


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

    You can get the tone of each story she shares much better.

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

    It was Ok. I am not sure what I was expecting but I had to force myself to finish it. I loved Tina Feys book and hoped the same for this one.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Her start at the Office.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ?

    No, better uses of credits.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a few times.

    "Loved it!"
    Would you listen to Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) again? Why?

    Absolutely. Mindy Kaling is absolutely hilarious, and listening to her tell her own story made it that much better, I couldn't imagine this being narrated by anyone else.

    Story
    "An enjoyable light listen/read"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) to be better than the print version?

    I think this audio book was well done by Mindy and I liked how the picture area was not edited out. Although I didn't buy the print edition, I enjoyed the book better with full disclosure.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the discussion on some less than flattering aspects of a young adult woman's experience in life. I can really relate to her point of view and humor.


    What about Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ’s performance did you like?

    Mindy's properly placed pauses and delivery matches the way my generation says certain quips.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book did make me chuckle and laugh out loud. The inner thoughts are honest and, to me, relatable.


    Any additional comments?

    I typically enjoy fiction, but this was a nice break away from a twisting, action storyline and just to hear some points of someone's life.

    Yes. Interesting story with lots of laugh out loud moments ( a little embarrassing when you guffaw in the subway at nothing).

    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.
