"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?"

love the script and the narrative. ..it was very entertaining and kept my attention through the readings
My expectations may have been too high for this, but I was disappointed. Maybe because I think Ellen had great observational stand-up and her show seems great from clips I've seen and the few times I've watched, but in those settings you see her AND hear her and I think that helps her delivery. I have not read or listened to her previous books. I just thought this Audible choice would be funny and it was kind of boring. She wasn't as animated as I thought and I just kept picturing her in a sound booth, annoyed that she had to narrate her own book. Haha. I'm still a fan of hers, but I think I would have liked this book better if I had read it in print.
Not riveting but enjoyable. I found it funny and that is the whole point after all. It is random thoughts and not a specific theme or story.
I've always been a huge fan of Ellen, but this takes it to a whole new level. it makes me feel connected with her. the book is appropriate for all ages. its funny, and its well read. im glad i bought it on audible instead of reading it. thank you Ellen for giving me something to do during math class. not like I pay attention anyways.
