    Story
    "A Mixed Experience"
    Would you try another book written by Mindy Kaling or narrated by Mindy Kaling?

    Overall, I found this book funny, warm, laid-back-easy-listening... at times a little irritating. Her remarks on men and culture were at times quite brash and cringeworthy. Mindy admits that she fails when it comes to making racist jokes...I wholeheartedly agree, and fail to understand why she persisted with it anyway even though she knew it was an epic glitch.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Her honesty made it interesting.


    What about Mindy Kaling’s performance did you like?

    I thought it was well read. I like that she didn't read everything. If an audiobook is more than one hour long, I think it helps to have different narrators drop by occasionally. Nice touch.


    Could you see Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    I'd say the Mindy project is the TV series of this book.

    "The surface level entertainment"

    I love Mindy. I think she's entertaining and inspiring. So when I heard the sound bite of this audio book I was excited.
    When I started listening to the book Mindy's animated voice kept my interest- but after a while I realised that I wasn't being stimulated mentally.
    This audio story is very safe- it skims the surface, and I feel Mindy has more to her than this. I kinda wish I'd downloaded Lena Dunhams book.

    Sorry Mindy- but I wouldn't recommend this

    I love Mindy Kaling about a million times more than I did before I read this, and I already loved her a lot.

    "Fun but a little insubstantial."

    Mindy Kaling is a gifted comic with a lot of skill, but I found this book surprisingly flimsy and vapid. I listened to the whole thing in one go, and it felt fun and also like a bit of a waste of time, like watching a dance movie marathon when you have your period. I don't want to slate her, because I do think she's really funny, but this is a bit like listening to a self-centred fifteen year old monologuing.

    Aaaand I didn't want to mention it because hey, be who you are and everything, but her voice is really, really grating after a while.

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

    Getting a better writer to rewrite it.


    What will your next listen be?

    If you want a far better written and narrated book by a female comedian get Girl Walks into a Bar.. by Rachel Dratch.


    What didn’t you like about Mindy Kaling’s performance?

    Very high pitched and nasal delivery. Gets old very quickly.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me??

    If I edited out all the parts I thought were rubbish it would be less than an hour long.


    Any additional comments?

    I listened to a sample on the audible site before buying and it seemed like it would be ok, a light breezy, funny book. However it soon became incredibly tedious. A chore to listen to, and something that could have been written by a self obsessed sixteen year old rather than a woman in her mid thirties.There are none of the insightful observations or witty comments that you would expect from a comedy writer. Just self indulgent and immature rambling. Disappointing.
