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.

This is the first time I have downloaded an audio book and thought I would try Is It Just Me? It is a funny book, only listened to the first three chapters so far but have to admit that I have gone back to reading a different book on my Kindle - it's a good thriller and can't put the book down. Is It Just Me? is the type of book you can put down and pick up again in a few days or weeks. Just not enough to keep me hooked.
I like to listen whilst doing long boring commutes and something light, entertaining and uplifting is what I need to get me through. Miranda's self narrated novel is exactly that. I'm not sure this would have worked with any other narrator but Miranda pulls it off.
Silly, irreverent and often downright ridiculous, this is a light hearted heartwarmer of an audio book.
Miranda doing what she does best- helping you feel just a little bit better about your life!
If you like the TV show, you'll like this book! I also enjouyed the light nature of the narrative, because as an audio book this makes it very easy to pick up where you last left it. Such fun!
I laughed out loud lots of times while listening to this. I would recommend it to everyone.
Like many people, I've watched Miranda on TV for the past few years and been kept entertained by her self deprecating, hopeless and slapstick humour.
However this book was disappointing in its format and content. Miranda regularly converses with her much less appealing 18 year old self, aiming to teach her life lessons. When Miranda doesn't entirely convince us she has learned much about life, or that she is totally happy with her lot (38 yr old singleton with dog) it's hard to swallow, and ultimately annoying.
"Couldn't stop listening"
I laughed until tears ran down my face. It's just like listening to your posh and slightly gauche best school friend.
"or is it just me?!"
Miranda Hart's comedy shines through this book. She displays the same wit and quirky thought patterns as she narrates her book, as she displays in her TV shows. She addresses the listener directly and you feel drawn into her own world with its unique spin! A real must of a listen if you like Miranda. More please !!!
"such a good listen!"
I love watching 'Miranda' on TV, so knowing that Miranda Hart had written a book was naturally inquisitive. I was a bit worried that it might feel forced or awkward, being like the show but not it.
I love this audiobook though, hearing it read by the author makes it even better than reading the book for yourself. The charm and humour are consistent throughout and it is a great book to dip in and out of in order to lighten my mood or take a break from work.
Was a funny book, nice to listen to whilst driving to and from work to clear my head and have a giggle. Her alter-ego 18 year old Miranda was slightly dire on the ears, but apart from that was good
This book is fantastic and so funny!
I love that Miranda reads this herself as her witty humour and character make the story x
