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.

    "Not worth it."
    Would you try another book from Mindy Kaling and/or Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ?

    no


    What could Mindy Kaling have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Made the story more interesting.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ’s performances?

    Probably not.


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

    I didn't finish it.


    Any additional comments?

    I know that Mindy is not Tina Fey. But Tina set the bar so high. This book was so boring that I did not even finish it. I suggest buying Bossypants or anything by David Sedaris instead.

    Story
    "really great for what it is"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would highly recommend it. She's not a fully grown woman looking back on her life and career. She's a 32 year old trying to figure things out... like the rest of us. It's funny. She's a celebrity, but also very based in reality.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)?

    Her stories about being a celebrity that isn't stereotypically beautiful.


    Have you listened to any of Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Love The Office.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book.

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

    Pretty well...I think its clear she doesn't narrate for a living, but what do you expect? I do really like the book, still.


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

    yes.


    Any additional comments?

    She's really funny and proposes hilarious questions that I sympathized with. All in all, definitely worth it!

    What did you love best about Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)?

    A very enjoyable book. I have watched Mindy for years on The Office, but had no idea she was a writer, director and now producer.

    Her story is fascinating and made me laugh out loud. I'd recommend it.

    "Wry, Funny, Humble & Hilarious!"

    If you are a fan of the show The Office, you'll love this book, it has the same sort of sensibility since Mindy is involved with both. She is a very funny lady. Mindy lets her "nerd flag fly" and shows that this is the way to having a life you enjoy - being yourself, doing what you love and not worrying about the rest (what other people think).

    "A lot of fun!"
    What made the experience of listening to Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) the most enjoyable?

    Most people who will consider reading this book know Mindy's character, Kelly on The Office. While you can see where Kelly comes from, you will be delighted to learn what a bright, endearing, and honest actor & writer Mindy Kaling is. She is a true talent. This is laugh out loud funny, for men and women. I highly recommend it. Short and fun!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book is so funny. Mindy is one of those girls you want to have with you on girls night. She makes you laugh so hard.


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

    This book kind of reminds me of Tina Fey's book Bosseypants.
