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.

    "I LOL-ed"

    A light read, and especially funny read by the author. I liked hearing about how she worked her way to success in Hollywood.

    Story
    "Funny in a Cute Way"

    She seems extremely educated and she is very funny. She also does a great job narrating her own book as her voice is semi-annoying but in a humorous, cute way. I really enjoyed listening to this title. Love her take on movies, music and creating lists.

    Story
    "Reads Like a 10 Year Old's Dream Journal"
    Would you try another book from Mindy Kaling and/or Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ?

    No. Unless, of course, I suddenly became deeply interested in the inner workings of the mind of a middle school girl.


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

    I love Mindy Kaling in The Office, but listening to her voice for 4 hours is like a mild form of torture.


    Do you think Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No because, quite frankly, Mindy Kaling is just not interesting. The book starts off witty and entertaining and about halfway through, the whole thing loses steam and then towards the end there is an ENTIRE CHAPTER about how annoying it is when it takes a long time for a guy to tie his shoes. Obviously her comedic writing doesn't translate well into an entire book and a second one would be the worst idea since....well, since Mindy Kaling decided to write a first book.


    Any additional comments?

    This seems like its written by someone who still believes in unicorns and whose favorite color is

    Story
    "Intelligent and Honest"
    Would you listen to Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) again? Why?

    I plan on listening to this often. Mindy is honest, relatable and incredibly smart.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love autobiographies in general but what makes this one stand out is Mindy. She's definitely a unique personalty with an interesting perspective and voice.


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

    Mindy's performance was a bit flat at first compared to her usual persona but she seems to relax into it as it goes on and it's not detrimental to the story. Mike Schur is always a delight to hear.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Less of a moment and more of a theme. It's genuinely nice to hear from a comedian/writer that you don't have to come from some sort of broken childhood to accomplish things. I related a lot to her childhood. She loves her family, excelled academically and was a bit socially awkward. Her love for her friends and family was very relatable and her delivery is so forthright and honest. There's a lot of life experience to learn from and a lot of poignant messages.


    Any additional comments?

    Also check out The Mindy Project. ;)

    "Hope Momma Got Paid - cuz this book was crazy good"
    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book; it was light hearted and hilarious. Everything I expected it to be and more. I'm also in my early 30s - very nice to hear her thoughts on men and know that I am not alone in my crazy dating experiences. Even better, it was great to hear someone say they still believe in and want a good old fashion relationship where people get married to someone who is a friend for life and grow old together! Sorta sad that that part was refreshing. Made me laugh a lot! :)

    "Cute but not hilarious"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Probably not. Some sections are funny , most is missed comedy. Mindy Kaling although fun on TV, does not come through in her own book. It's all somewhat flat!


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

    none


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

    nothing, someone else should have read the book


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no

    would not recommend
