    "Hilarious, wonderful book!"

    I just love Ellen. She is warm and caring and so personable. Obviously she is hilariously witty and intelligent and effortlessly beautiful. But what really strikes me is that she is so personable and relatable, and really, truly cares about other people. This book had me laughing out loud so much that I had to replay the chapters several times before I actually heard everything, because I would laugh so hard I couldn't hear the rest of what she said. Highly recommended.

    Story
    "DeGeneres leaves you laughing"

    I've been a fan of Ellen's writing since picking up her first book "My Point... And I Do Have One" back in high school. She's funny, witty, relatable and honest. Plus, she's optimistic and positive.

    This book combines her random thought conversation style and throws in bits and pieces from her own life. I think her willingness to be honest and share things from her experience is one of the main reasons she connects so well with her readers/audience. Another reason is that even though she is relentless in encouraging people to be positive, look for the joys in life and appreciate every day, she never comes across as pushy or preachy.

    I laughed a lot while reading this, and when I was done, I felt really good about my life and how lucky I am for what I have. I recommend you read this book. I think you'll be glad you did.

    "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!

    "Good for a quick laugh"
    Where does Seriously...I'm Kidding rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's mid level. I've read better but I've read worse...


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

    Yes. This book was good for a few great laughs. I like Ellen in general and enjoy her comedy.


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

    Her sarcasm about real life simple acts really entertains.


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

    I loved her describing her cover girl experience.

    "Thought it would be funnier."
    What disappointed you about Seriously...I'm Kidding?

    It was not as funny as her show. Maybe the ambience during the show makes her funnier.


    What was most disappointing about Ellen DeGeneres’s story?

    It started out well but fizzled toward the end.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narration was OK.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Seriously...I'm Kidding?

    Quite a few after two-thirds of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I still like her humor, just not in book form.

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

    "Funny, but all over the place"

    Ellen is very funny. I enjoyed listening to it. Everything was so random, and in no particular order. There wasn't much depth or story.

    "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.

    "Favorite of Ellen"

    I know that there wasn't exactly a story line in there and Ellen didn't present detailed information about her own personal life. But she did share the knowledge and truths what she had learned over these years. I love her monologues on the show and this book is basically that. She shares her thoughts and beliefs and observations in a very positive and funny way. It is a relaxing and uplifting book, which reminds us that it is alright to have fun and act silly from time to time. It is not a serious book and you will not gain deep rooted messages to think about throughout your years, it is simply a little time to stop and enjoy the funnier side of life. I enjoyed listening to her and anyone who loves Ellen, will enjoy it, too.

    "Sassy Dory"

    Ellen is just simply a wonderful, uplifting, hilarious, inspirational woman.

    She's honest and can laugh at herself. Which we all need to be able to do. Life is short and we need to be living it not complaining about what makes it up.



    It's a goofy feel good read I enjoyed every minute of it. The quick chapters just make you feel like you speed right on through it.

    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.
