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.

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

    The best.


    What other book might you compare Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) to and why?

    Tina Fey's Bossy Pants, Rachel Dratch's Girl Walks Into a Bar, and Lena Dunham's Not That Kind of Girl


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

    Mindy says so many things that I think and would never verbalize. She also has a unique take life as a single woman and is a great story teller. Mindy is brilliant; among the most talented comedy writers and performers out there today. I didn't watch the Office after Season 3, and only saw one or two episodes of Season 1, so I didn't know her from that series. I started watching The Mindy Project and was hooked.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy this book. I've listened to some chapters twice!

    "Decent, but expected better."

    As a fan of the Mindy Project I was very excited to read Mindy killings book. However I was little disappointed in some of the subject matter and the topics. I don't realize how similar Mindy was to her Mindy Project character, but she is quite superficial and very basic. One might call her a basic bitch. That is why I give this book 3.33 stars

    "I hope teenage girls don't listen to this"

    Full of bad life-advice. Funny at times, but overall really ignorant. I don't get offended by many things. I like some pretty raunchy comedy, but this is offensive in the sense that the snippets she shares as her life's lessons are actually really awful ways at looking at life. It's not funny enough to warrant the terrible things she says. It's not terrible in a Louis CK way, so don't get the wrong idea and get this because you're assuming it's that kind of humor.

    "Lame."
    Would you try another book from Mindy Kaling and/or Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ?

    No.


    What was most disappointing about Mindy Kaling’s story?

    It was a lame attempt to be another Bossypants.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    There were a couple of cute moments, but for the most part it was just a boring braggy, narcissistic rambling.

    "mindy kaling is awesome"

    audiobooks read by the author are the best and mindy kaling is the best! most audiobooks annoy me cause the readers either read too slowly or aren't the right reader for the book. I'm used to this american life type storytelling with a natural flow of delivery and I don't find most audiobooks to be this way, so I enjoyed this a lot since it didn't feel like she was reading her memoir back to me.

    "Pretty weak"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I wanted to laugh, but just didn't hear anything funny or relatable.


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

    No.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ?

    The casting was fine.


    Any additional comments?

    The book was very skimpy, and Mindy came across as a spoiled, privileged brat. Just because you can publish a memoir doesn't mean you should. Maybe if she'd waited another 10 years, she'd have more to say, but here, I just couldn't relate to her and didn't find her musings funny. Especially dull were her exercise fantasies. I got the impression that her coworkers find her insufferable as well.

    "Wonderful easy listen- like listening to a friend"
    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.
