"I've experienced a whole lot the last few years, and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax, and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?"

    "Be happy"

    This was a great book, she throws in some lighthearted chapters when she reads heavy ones to show you it's okay to laugh at the experiences. Even if you have already read it I highly recommend the Audio Book because she makes it so much better. Be happy.

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

    Love her show but this was boring and nonsense. I felt like I was duped and spent money on a book that she threw out for bucks in her pocket.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ellen DeGeneres again?

    Nope

    "Kind of rambling"

    While Ellen is funny and full of life, I just felt like this was very rambling and just not very interesting.

    "Sounds like she smoked pot and rambled for few hours. Nothing makes any sense! Sorry Ellen!"

    First off, I absolutely adore Ellen on her talk show. I think she is an amazing person. However, in my opinion this book was far from amazing. Honestly, I couldn't even finish it. I stopped listening around chapter 17 and am completely surprised I even let it go on that long without stopping it sooner. I was waiting for the book to pick up and become entertaining. Needless to say that never happened.
    This book is completely chaotic. There's no structure. There's no story. Imagine someone smoking pot and then rambling for a few hours about the most random of random that random could ever be. Around chapter 17 is when I decided to read the bad reviews and was surprised that I truthfully couldn't agree more with them. I though maybe I was the asshole that wasn't listening or comprehending properly. But no, the majority of the population was in agreeance this book was bad. Unfortunately I would not recommend this book, unless of course it was too a stoner than I would definitely recommend it.

    In true Ellen style this book manages to capture humour while at the same time instilling various positive ideas in the reader. Great book.

    Definitely the type of book you should listen to rather than read. I so enjoyed "reading" it while driving in the car.

    "Friendly drivel"

    I thought I’d try this as a bit of light relief from the thrillers or serious novels I usually get. Ellen as a narrator is good; her voice is warm and engaging. Unfortunately the book itself is pure drivel. I expected after the glib introduction that it would settle down to some kind of interesting context, but it doesn’t, she skips through wise cracks on a number of topics without really saying anything at all. I gave up after chapter 7 and fast forwarded in the hope that I hit on something worthwhile. I didn’t. Very disappointing.

    Not the book I was hoping for. Little chapters that sometimes made no sense. I was disappointed by the content.

    "Too Silly"

    Really gutted about this book. She's so funny! But I wanted abit more info about her life not silly noises, and loads of info about how I should live my life. I though it was an autobiography?

    "Fluff. Pleasant fluff, but fluff nonetheless."
    Would you try another book written by Ellen DeGeneres or narrated by Ellen DeGeneres?

    Narrated? Definitely. I enjoy Ellen's patter and I'm a big fan of hers. The performance was the saving grace of these three hours.

    Written? Well... that's another story. There's nothing to this book. There are a few funny bits, of course, but probably fewer than you'd get watching one episode of her show (or binge watching clips on YouTube). She also tries to bring forward her thoughts on positivity and self-worth, but never gets beyond the surface or says anything that couldn't fit on a greeting card.

    Its like she tried to write a memoir, a self-help book, and a comedy book all at once, but didn't trust her audience to stick with her for more than a few hours. What you're left with is a disappointing jack-of-all trades with no depth or direction.

    I wouldn't absolutely rule out another book by her, but I'll be very suspicious of future offerings, which is a shame. I know she can do better.

    "Funny and easy listen"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Good for a laugh and gives a few points on which to think on. It was read like an extension of her monologues. Not to expect a deep, thought provoking serious novel which looks greatly into Ellen's personal life or anything like that or even following any story line of sorts. It was an overall light, relaxing, funny, random and enjoyable book to listen to and there were many moments which made me laugh throughout the book. The narration by Ellen herself added humour and a warmth to the book which i greatly enjoyed listening to it from beginning to end.

    Great listen for any fan of Ellen

    Could not stop listening to this audio book. Ellen is such an inspiration and makes me laugh so much.
    I recommend this audio book toliterally everyone. It most certainly will cheer you up if you're having a bad day, and will put you in an even better mood if you're having a good day.
