    Story
    "We get it - your funny."
    What would have made Seriously...I'm Kidding better?

    If she would tell stories more from the heart. She didn't reveal anything interesting or in depth which is why one would buy a book from someone like her. Whats beyond Americas funny girl.


    What could Ellen DeGeneres have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Shared more of her instead of her writing team of sometimes boring jokes.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ellen DeGeneres???s performances?

    I'll stick to her show and cover girl ads.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    dissappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    errr ahhh mmmm

    Story
    "Hilarious"
    What made the experience of listening to Seriously...I'm Kidding the most enjoyable?

    Ellen doesn't just read the paragraphs.... it's more like she's acting or delivering a stand-up monologue. I loved it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's a short, funny book, so it's great on Audible. Complex literature is not well suited to the audio format.


    Have you listened to any of Ellen DeGeneres’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I hadn't listened to/read any of her previous books, but I love her TV show.


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

    Sure, that would've been great. But because I only listen to Audible books in my car, it took me about 3 days to finish it. It made me laugh even while in traffic.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like Ellen or love comedy in general, you'll really enjoy the book.

    "Love Ellen... a bit disappointed in the book!!"
    Would you try another book from Ellen DeGeneres and/or Ellen DeGeneres?

    Yes


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

    Would have liked it more if Ellen read the story more like she talks in real life on her show. Sounded too much like reading, not as funny as I expected and I love her humor!!

    "GREAT, as always!"
    Have you listened to any of Ellen DeGeneres’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Ellen is always entertaining. This one is every bit as good as her previous audiobooks. I wondered if it would be too similar, but I really liked this one, too. Laughter really is important, and you'll get a real lift from this book

    "Seriously Ellen?"
    What would have made Seriously...I'm Kidding better?

    There wasn't any rich content. Maybe it was the audiobook and that I wasn't sitting down reading it... but I was bored out of my mind and I don't think I really laughed once. I watch Ellen almost daily, I love her and the charity work she does. I love her family. But this book was just so self-promotional and bleh.

    It's also very self-promotional. She says she's at a point now where she feels totally comfortable with herself and that she's totally happy. But then she leaves it at that. Or she'll talk about being a supermodel with Covergirl... and you expect her to say something like


    What was most disappointing about Ellen DeGeneres’s story?

    It wasn't really a story. There are 55 chapters and most of them are pure random. I love silly humor but this didn't meet the mark. She does a chapter on falling asleep and another on meditation (these are supposed to be funny) and I seriously almost fell asleep while driving.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ellen DeGeneres’s performances?

    I enjoy her show and her causes, just not this book.


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

    I love it when she talks about her wife. You can tell she really loves her.


    Any additional comments?

    I just wish is was better! I had high hopes, I'm always calling Ellen the next Oprah.

    "Painfully unfunny."
    Would you try another book from Ellen DeGeneres and/or Ellen DeGeneres?

    My wife and I generally loved Ellen DeGeneres's stand-up and looked forward to this to listen to together on a car trip together. After about an hour and a half (a very fair trial, I think), we just looked at each other and agreed


    Has Seriously...I'm Kidding turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ellen DeGeneres?

    She should have been the perfect choice, and was. Just needed better content.
