    "DIsappointing"
    Any additional comments?

    I love Ellen, but wow. This book is basically all the things that were probably cut from her other books. No rhyme or reason, just a bunch of nonsense. To top it off, she sounds so bored. Really really really disappointing

    Story
    "Seriously...I'm Kidding -From One Man Perspective"
    Where does Seriously...I'm Kidding rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would rank this book 5 STAR.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the way Ellen narrates the story to the listener. To me it just catches my attention. I find that this book is portable, no matter where you are in the world, in the living room, bathtub, beach or in the bus you will be able to relate to the story and enjoy the book.


    Have you listened to any of Ellen DeGeneres’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Listening to Ellen is listening to Ellen she is funny and playful in her speech as usual.


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

    I actually loved the topic on "Stuff" it made me think of my life and really many other chapters that I can relate to think more about my life and it really moved me.

    "Love Ellen, but not this book"
    What would have made Seriously...I'm Kidding better?

    I would have liked to learn more about Ellen's life.


    What was most disappointing about Ellen DeGeneres’s story?

    I love Ellen but this was pretty painful to get through. One chapter was just random sounds...bloop bleep bam etc... It was pretty rambling and I didn't get a clear picture of what she was going for.

    "I loved it"
    Any additional comments?

    My only issue with the book, agreeing with some other reviews, was there wasn't much story. If you're looking to learn anything about Ellen- you won't. Or if you're looking to hear some stories- you won't. It's not an essay or memoir format so much as just Ellen being Ellen. I found it absolutely hilarious. It's comparable to her stand-up specials in jokes and performance. DEFINITELY entertaining and laugh out loud hilarity. I recommend it overall.

    "If you love Ellen, you'll love this audiobook!"
    If you could sum up Seriously...I'm Kidding in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, creative, easy to listen to


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

    I never had a book have me laugh several times per chapter. Wait, change that to loud giggling every few lines. It's absolutely hilarious and light.


    Any additional comments?

    The book felt like a standup routine. I love Ellen's humour and I loved this book!

    Story
    "not her best"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Ellen is amazing, hilarious, and clever. This book is lacking, even with all of her clever lines, it was lacking substance. Came off like a book of randomly places jokes.


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

    I hope her earlier books are better.


    Did Seriously...I'm Kidding inspire you to do anything?

    She has some good lines, makes me wish I could make jokes as interesting as hers.

    "Just great..."
    If you could sum up Seriously...I'm Kidding in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, light and refreshing.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ellen, because is a biographical book.


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

    Ellen is an extremely funny person, and she has a pretty funny voice. It felt as if she was doing stand-up (which she was great at).


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

    I laughed, a lot.

    "Fun listening for a boring car ride"
    If you could sum up Seriously...I'm Kidding in three words, what would they be?

    Cute, silly, warm


    Would you recommend Seriously...I'm Kidding to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yeah, I found myself repeating parts of it to friends. I'm not sure I would recommend listening to the entire thing, but there were parts that made me chuckle.


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

    No, it worked out nicely for when I would drive, once or twice a week, to my boyfriends house an hour away. I didn't lose anything when I paused it and started it up again a few days later.

    Story
    "What a disappointment"
    What disappointed you about Seriously...I'm Kidding?

    I love Ellen DeGeneres...and I was very excited that she was reading her own book. The story itself rambled on from one stream of thought to the next, none of which were very interesting.


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

    Her tone was drab, the moments she went off on tangents (one involved me having to listen to her eating an apple) were awful.


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

    I was incredibly disappointed.


    Any additional comments?

    There were a couple funny moments, and some good points, but they were few and far between.
