    "Had some funny stuff."

    Some of the book was funny but for the most part it was pretty much a let down.

    "I'm not kidding"

    I really like Ellen.. but I really didn't like this book. I expected more of a memoir, or at least to learn something about her life. 57 chapters later, I know that she can make some pretty weird noises (I listened on audio book) but didn't come away with anything else. One chapter was entirely about counting sheep. I'm not kidding. Maybe I just had unfair expectations of the book, but at least it was short.

    "Not worth the time"
    Would you try another book from Ellen DeGeneres and/or Ellen DeGeneres?

    I like Ellen - I like her show and I think she's incredibly smart and funny. However, I found this book to be lacking in all areas. it wasn't smart - it and worse - it wasn't very funny. I read that in other reviews and thought - well they just don't like her enough and don't have a good sense of humor. Wrong.... I really should have taken the other reviews to heart.


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

    Not necessarily - but I'll think twice before getting another from Ellen.


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

    disappointment. I really like Ellen - and thought the book would be better than the other reviews mentioned. I was wrong. I should have taken to heart what the other reviews said.

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

    I was expecting humer. Instead I got Ellen's rambling train of thoughts. Which would have been fine if there were any moments of substance


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

    I love and admire her and if she's going to write a book I need genuine transparency or intellect!


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Ellen DeGeneres?

    I don't think do

    Would you listen to Seriously...I'm Kidding again? Why?

    I have always liked Ellen Degeneres. Hearing herself narrate her own book is fantastic! Her humor is fun and her outlook on life is wonderful.

    Ellen does a great job performing her work. Even made adjustments to the book to make it appropriate for audio.

    Story
    "Absolutely the most hilarious woman ever!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Listening to Ellen Is like watching her TV except i am not tied down to the TV. I can listen and laugh outside, while driving my car or while relaxing in bed. I enjoy using my imagination to see her expressions as she reads her book. I would highly recommend this listen to everyone!! It really does put a smile on your face. My husband smiles at me as I listen and laugh out loud.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Loved the humor throughout the book. She talks about situations we are all familiar with, she talks about things that have happened to all of us. She is really down to earth.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the chapter Ellen has on sounds she makes and she says for those of you reading you will have to just imagine the sounds I will make and for those listening - you can hear them. HAHA- she is a hoot!


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

    No - I listen and repeat chapters when i need to de-stress.


    Any additional comments?

    buy it! You will not regret it.
