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.

I wanted to like it but it just wasn't very funny to me.
Somewhat amusing, but not anything that really stood out as hilarious.
I could have done without even listening to it.
Those of the UK audience may relate to it more?
I read about the reviews saying the young Miranda voice was annoying and decided to still give it a try and then also thought it became annoying.
I love Miranda's television work. Perhaps if I could see her performing the book it would have been better. Not sure.
We are three weeks apart in age so her 18 year old self was a mirror for me. This book is not only laugh out loud funny but also a great reminder to hold the good and bad life experiences and dreams close as they all form who you are. I can't wait to read Peggy & Me!
If it was narrated by someone else.
Her voice was difficult to understand and was like nails on a chalkboard. It was so bad we couldn't listen very long before stopping completely.
Truly delightful from beginning to end. I only wanted more. I encourage all to listen to, instead of reading, this book. Miranda Hart's reading of it is everything.
I absolutely adored this book. I found myself frequently saying 'it is not just you' back to the book and then going off to start a conversation about that chapter with the nearest person.
I find myself oddly grateful to have hobbies, but longing for a dog.
I know nothing about Miranda Hart and bought this book based on countless good reviews, (which is what compelled me to write this review) however I was bitterly disappointed. I can see how the humor would work in stand up but comes across contrived and unintelligent in book form. I wish I had something good to say but I couldn't even finish the book.
Lovely to listen too Miranda Hart read her own book! Great to listen to didn't want it to end. Very funny too.
well what can I say. I think you need to listen to this book rather than read it to get the full Miranda effect. loved it.
If you don't like the Miranda TV serires - then you wont like this. If you do - then you will. Over 7 hours of Miranda madness. Such fun!!
I love Miranda Hart and to listen to her comedic take on adult life and the very many awkward situations she has been through makes you love her even more!
love it. funny as well. good read. would listen to it again
I absolutely loved this book, love Miranda the t.v. show now I love this book 📖 to.
Is a great read had a good giggle at the same time. Love this women.
"A very, what I call, fun listen..."
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.
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.
Slipping off bar stools and ejecting poo's from windows.
No. It was a great driving companion that I could dip in and out of.
Am afraid not. I liked her narration but found the content a bit forced.
This was the positive bit
A few funny moments but not many
