    "I Couldn't Stop Laughing"
    What made the experience of listening to Seriously...I'm Kidding the most enjoyable?

    I read this while I was on a road trip and I have to say that I absolutely LOVED it! I love Ellen, but this audible book was absolutely hilarious. I can't really say there was much of a story, just a bunch of chapters on various subjects. I don't know how she did it, but I felt like I never stopped laughing.


    What about Ellen DeGeneres’s performance did you like?

    Ellen connects to her audience as if they were listening to her live. I thought her performance was great.

    "Self-promoting book"

    Don't download this unless you want to listen all about the wonderful things Ellen is doing ... no story, just complete self-promotion. Her first book was so much better.

    "Disappointing"
    What disappointed you about Seriously...I'm Kidding?

    My wife and I are Ellen fans and loved her 1st book. This book did not make us laugh a single time and was mostly a collection of ramblings and incoherent noises that made it impossible to listen to the entire book. We gave up on the book half-way through, which was too much wasted time. It is disappointing that Ellen would push this half-hearted work to her fans.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ellen DeGeneres again?

    No


    What didn’t you like about Ellen DeGeneres’s performance?

    Rambled


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

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your time on this book.

    "Soooo Entertaining!"
    What did you love best about Seriously...I'm Kidding?

    I don't think I'll ever regret a purchase of something by Ellen. She's so funny, I worried I was disturbing my coworkers with my poorly held-in laughter. Definitely a good purchase.


    What does Ellen DeGeneres bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    You can hear what she heard when she was writing it.

    Story
    "Full time Ellen"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to anyone who watches the Ellen show. This is a few hours of Ellen non stop humour. We listened while on a roadtrip. This really gives you a glimpse inside Ellen's life as talk show host, actor, Cover Girl, etc.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Ellen DeGeneres? Why or why not?

    Yes.


    Which character – as performed by Ellen DeGeneres – was your favorite?

    This book chronicles experiences and thoughts. Ellen narrates the whole thing.


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

    No

    Story
    "just relaxed silly listening."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Seriously...I'm Kidding to be better than the print version?

    Audio version is probably better because it is narrated by Ellen herself. I think I may have gotten tired of the silly in it if I was just reading a book.


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

    Maybe put more about her life and not so much joking in it.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes.


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

    Learning how sensitive she is about how other people feel.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    "Definitely NOT for me ...and I'm not kidding"

    I like celeb bio/memoirs so I thought I knew what I was getting.

    What I actually got was several hours of not very interesting, not very funny, free association. Maybe she was kidding about this being a book.

    "And I like Ellen!"
    What disappointed you about Seriously...I'm Kidding?

    To me, this book seemed like Ellen took a weekend and did a free flow of goofiness for a paycheck or said "Ooops. My book deadline is in two days!" It wasn't that funny and the silliness of it all was over the top. And I do like Ellen! Very disappointing. Maybe the worst Audiobook I have gotten in 9 years on Audible.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Carol Burnett's book was very much a welcomed follow up to this.


    What didn’t you like about Ellen DeGeneres’s performance?

    It was like she was speaking to a 5 year old.


    Any additional comments?

    Sorry, Ellen. I so wanted to like this.
