Is It Just Me? | [Miranda Hart]

Is It Just Me?

Well hello to you dear audiobook browser. Now I have your attention it would be rude if I didn't tell you a little about my literary feast. So, here is the thing: is it just me or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination and sometimes unexplained nudity, that accompanied childhood and adolescence? I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences - from school days to life as an office temp - and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you, too, dear listener) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path.

Publisher's Summary

Well hello to you dear audiobook browser. Now I have your attention it would be rude if I didn't tell you a little about my literary feast. So, here is the thing: Is it just me or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination, and sometimes unexplained nudity that accompanied childhood and adolescence? Does everybody struggle with the hazards that accompany, say, sitting elegantly on a bar stool; using chopsticks; pretending to understand the bank crisis; pedicures - surely it's plain wrong for a stranger to fondle your feet? Or is it just me?

I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences - from school days to life as an office temp - and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you, too, dear listener) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path. Because frankly where is the manual? The much needed manual to life. Well, fret not, for this is my attempt at one and let's call it, because it's fun, a Miran-ual. I thank you.

    Story
    "Just like Miranda"
    If you could sum up Is It Just Me? in three words, what would they be?

    It really is just her! Funny and engaging.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Obvious answer here I would think!


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

    If I was reading this I would hear it in Miranda's voice, but the reality is better!


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

    It was, but I did it in bite sizes.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't think this is the 'real' Miranda, the book is more fiction feeling than reality - but thoroughly enjoyed it nonetheless.

    "Love, love, love this lady"
    If you could sum up Is It Just Me? in three words, what would they be?

    Hart's heartfelt humour


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Is It Just Me??

    So many - the Dirty Dancing anecdote struck home


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

    No


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

    Not especially - I wanted it to last!


    Any additional comments?

    This book rings especially true for me as Ms Hart and I are of similar age. Very funny and eminently relateable-to!

    "Hilarious-laugh out loud funny (which is awkward)"

    Okay, so I am a fan of Miranda Hart. And this book and performance doesn't disappoint. I haven't read the paper copy of this, but I can't help but feel that you must miss something if you don't get the joy of Miranda Hart's delivery of her own words. Of course, I might be biased, so sometime I'll have to pick up a copy.

    While this is a book about life lessons, and - as she calls them - the 'little moments', it manages to be thoughtful without being preachy. It's also very humorous, and full of the nearly-mortifying anecdotes I expect from Miranda Hart. The device of the narrator speaking to her younger self is also very effective, and somehow, the 2 characters are clearly distinguished to the listener - truly a show of Miranda's talent.

    It's a wonderful listen, and I can't recommend it enough.

    What disappointed you about Is It Just Me??

    She is a fantastic comedian but the book is boring drivel. I was excited that she was reading it herself but it just didn't happen for me.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Miranda Hart again?

    possibly


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

    "A great comedienne"

    Only 38 years old when is is written and nothing much in one sense to write about except she is a very funny woman. The trick of speaking to her 18 year old self is illuminating, and carries some great insights into growing up. Her humour is very "British", and a sense of the absurd in everyday experiences. Great fun!

    "DELIGHTFUL"
    What made the experience of listening to Is It Just Me? the most enjoyable?

    Slow start, you think Miranda Hart is just waffling on at first but the book has a solid core and a really good point to it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    18 year old Miranda is a joy.


    What about Miranda Hart’s performance did you like?

    The conversational style. This is one of those books that is best listened to rather than read.


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

    If I told you it would be a spoiler alert, but I'm smiling as I write this.

    Story
    "Only in Bitesize Pieces"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story line, more character differentiation and a fraction of the time


    Would you ever listen to anything by Miranda Hart again?

    I would certainly give it a try


    Would you be willing to try another one of Miranda Hart’s performances?

    Yes


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Is It Just Me??

    A bit of everything


    Any additional comments?

    Miranda in bite size pieces can be quite amusing, But after 30 minutes I seemed to have had a Miranda humour bypass. Some clever ideas, eg LIttle M, but too much and too samey in story and in voice. Sorry Miranda but you have done far funnier and superior stuff

    "some what disapointing"
    What did you like best about Is It Just Me?? What did you like least?

    some of the humour is funny from Miranda ...the voice impression of the eighteen year old irritated me to the core and there was too much of it


    What other book might you compare Is It Just Me? to, and why?

    I don't think I can compare it so directly to anything I have listen to lately


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    It was not like her stand-up comedy which rattles along


    Was Is It Just Me? worth the listening time?

    sorry to say no....absolutely not ....from the TV shows I thought she did her herself down


    Any additional comments?

    her next book should be better.

    I love Miranda!


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

    It was disappointing when compared to the brilliant TV series. Her younger self was extremely irritating and ruined the whole listening experience for me.


    What about Miranda Hart’s performance did you like?

    Miranda was an excellent narrator and made the listening experience more authentic. It would not have felt right if someone different had narrated it.


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

    No, but only because of her younger self.

    Story
    "Well narrated and the story was generally alright"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    As someone who has not seen the TV program it was not what I was expecting.

    It is more a story about someone moaning about being slightly different rather than a story.

    It is well narrated and great tone throughout. It was more a bit of a giggle rather than a real belly laugh. This may be more because I have not seen Miranda before.


    What will your next listen be?

    How to Fall in Love - Cecelia Shern


    What about Miranda Hart’s performance did you like?

    Great enthusiasm with the narration


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    No

    "A very, what I call, fun listen..."
    Would you listen to Is It Just Me? again? Why?

    This audiobook is narrated by the author. It is a fun listen, if you like Miss Hart (which I do), and even if you don't.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is not a autobiography, but more an insight into Miranda's perspective on her life, as it is now, and how it was at 18. Such fun, for anyone who reflects on an awkward teenage phase and had to readjust their expectations of "adult" life in response to what that life has presented them with.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Slipping off bar stools and ejecting poo's from windows.


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

    No. It was a great driving companion that I could dip in and out of.

    "A Brilliant Read"

    A light-hearted and thoroughly entertaining read, Miranda Hart's book offers an insight into her thoughts and past experiences, utilising this through the roleplay of another, 18 year old Miranda who pops up sometimes in the book. I would say it is just as funny as the Miranda sitcom, albeit a little predictable in some places - but this doesn't make it any less funny. Would definitely recommend.

    "Born to be an Audiobook writer."

    This audiobook is simply fantastic.



    I got it because I had a 8hr flight ahead of me and thought it would be a good way to kill some time.



    I had only heard one audiobook before and I had been very disappointed about it, but I thought I should give it another try, so I choose this one.



    I choose it because I figure it would be easy and light to hear over the long hours ahead, and it was. Of course if your familiar with the author you know she's meant to make you laugh, but hearing her through the pages just made it a wonderful experience. Like having your own personal stand up comedy show playing over the headphones.



    One fair waring tho; it might draw some attention to you, as you will be very likely end up laughing about all her nonsense and you might as well end up shouting some random answers to her questions.



    If you are in the edge of trying an audiobook this is the way to go. It will make you love the whole experience.
