    "Another GREAT book from Ellen"

    I'm lucky to have been raised vegan like my parents and understand so much all she talks about positivism and kindness... The book fills you up with so much love and laughter that it's contagious!
    For huge fans of Ellen like me, a little warning, there's a bunch of stuff she has already used on her monologues on her show but it's still funny :P

    I live more than a 1.000.000 miles from USA and still makes a difference in my life! I loved it!

    "I was really disappointed."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I'm not really sure who would like this.


    What was most disappointing about Ellen DeGeneres’s story?

    The way this was read was so awkward. It just sounded all wrong. Not funny at all.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It didn't sound natural. Took away from the funny writing.

    "An enjoyable break"

    It was a good book to listen to and provided some comedic relief for my day and things to think about.
    It was rather disjointed and skipped around a bit, but I would expect that and it works well in our Twitter happy society where -

    Yes, kind of a short attention span book.

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

    Yes. Because the stand up skills of DeGeneres add to the humor.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed which brought me to tears.

    "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

    "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.

    "Seriously...good"

    Really enjoyed this, Ellen is a favourite of mine, but im not one for autobiographies or anything like this normally but as it was ellen thought id give it a listen and am so glad I did. I enjoyed this book very much, made me laugh out loud and was very interesting and can honestly say loved it from start to finish well worth a listen and with Ellen reading it makes it even better.

    "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.

    "Entertaining, funny."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, I find Ellen very funny, and this was nice to listen to, some chapters were better than others, some of them left me quite disappointed, but some chapters were outright funny, so overall worth it.


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

    yes I will because I really like her. She's very funny. But it would have to be read by her too.


    What about Ellen DeGeneres’s performance did you like?

    the best thing about this book is that it's read by the author.


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

    No, it's too long for one sitting for me personally. You could probably do it if you were on the beach with no kids or something like that..


    Any additional comments?

    Just about 3 chapters that I really would recommend to skip.. but it has more than 50 chapters,so overall a good fun listen.
