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.

Miranda Hart's first foray into autobiography is an absolute joy. Not so much a life story, more a life guide with an older (though not THAT old) Miranda imparting pearls of wisdom to her 18 year-old self , based on lessons learned via hideous (and hysterical) faux pas, mix-ups, fashion disasters and a geneous helping of life's rich tapestry.
This is one book which works even better as an audiobook as Miranda plays both herself today and as a larky teenager to hilarious effect, explaining to her younger self how things don't quite work out to plan (no becoming prime minister or marrying Dollar's David van Day).
It is a genuinely laugh out loud book which perfectly captures the trials and tribulations of growing up (and of being grown up).
this book is truely entertaining as miranda tells you of her true to life incidents you picture the funnyness and shame she brings apon herself its truely fantastic. Ive listened to this book whilst trying to drink my tea but it ends up everywhere ive also listened in bed and end up being late to work because ive listened for too long its a book that grabs your imagination and alot you can relate to in your own life of embarasing moments which makes it even funnyer. So in one word FANFLIPPINTASTIC. Download today you will not be disapointed :)
"I's not just me"
You have to like Miranda Hart or at least be open to liking her because this splendid audiobook is her in her own words and her own voice. The awkward, slightly gawky, very knowing comedian has excellent timing in her delivery of situations we can all recognise and may well have experienced ourselves. Miranda is talking directly to you and she has lots to say. A very satisfying listen.
"Well if it is, it's me too!!"
I am an out and out Miranda Hart fan, so this audiobook has been a total and utter joy to listen to. As always, Miranda is unafraid to share with her 'dear listener chum' all the little things in life which over time we forget, mainly because they are sooooo embarassing, but make up the people we are.
You cannot help but smile, laugh and cringe along with this audiobook, such fun!
Love Miranda and this book didn't disappoint. Good fun and easy listening. Definitely recommend this book.
"Miranda at her very best........."
This is definitely the best audiobook I have purchased. If you are a fan of Miranda, this is surely a must-have. I chose the audio over the standard book as I love Miranda's delivery and this definitely didn't disappoint. Lots of laugh out loud moments and hilariously accurate observations, well organised into bitesize chapters. Very highly recommended.
"A national treasure"
I have never watched Miranda, but bought this audiobook as it was recommended to me. I loved it. Made all the better that it was narrated by the author. I will definitely be watching Miranda on TV now.
"Laugh out loud funny!"
Thoroughly enjoyed this listening experience. Miranda reads just like she's talking only to you. I found myself laughing out loud on a regular basis and was sad when finished because I wanted more. Good thing is I can listen to it again and again!
I really love Miranda and she always makes me laugh. This is Miranda's life in her own words - you hear her talking to her younger self about what her younger self thinks is going to happen in her life and what actually happens. It's very funny to listen to. I did have to listen to it over a few days as it's over 7 hours. but it's worth listening to.
As MDLC, I listened and laughed out loud; feeling a kin to 38 year old Miranda as I too at 38 and 5ft9 have had an often awkward existence here on planet earth...not quite as bad, sorry Miranda but by 2ft shorter I can at times still mingle and disappear into the crowd, Soz!
Great listen, well done Ms Hart!
