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 is my favourite female comediene Her great TV series has won her a bundle of awards and millions of fans. But things haven't always gone smoothly. Miranda's life has been one long, awkward and rather embarrassing journey.
Miranda knows she isn’t the only one with problems. So she asked the British public to share their own most excruciating moments. During July thousands of people sent Miranda their stories on Twitter (@NoItsUsToo), and these have now been published by Hodder in an ebook, No, It's Us Too!
"Whether you are a bit famous or not famous, young or old, tall or short, dark or fair, beanpole or Rubenesque, soprano, alto, tenor or bass – I am hoping you might relate to my tales, rants and musings," Miranda Hart says. "I’m hoping it’s not just me. Let us for now park life’s big issues. Let’s forget the economy, forget war, forget births and deaths and biubbins. Let’s buckle down to the nuance-y nub of life on our literary romp. I’m talking dating; I’m talking holidays and all that blooming beach etiquette. I’m talking how to cope with being mistaken for a pregnant lady on the bus when all you’re really carrying is a secondhelping-of-pie-and-mash baby. Not that that has ever happened to me. (It has.) I’m talking not feeling awkward having a massage; I’m talking how to use chopsticks with grace. The real coalface of life. I’m not sure I’ll have all the answers to these conundrums. But I’m practically an expert having made every mistake going, and it will be a pleasure simply to get these weighty issues off my chest. Or issues off my weighty chest. Either works."
Hilariously funny. I kept laughing out loud whilst walking the dog, getting really curious looks from other dog owners who are now convinced I am potty. But thanks Miranda, you've bightened up my winter. x
"I wish it was just you!!!!"
This is a must for all Miranda fans very very funny when she's talking to her 18 year old self.
Brilliantly written and read.
"Miranda's milestones through life"
Miranda's book is funny, sad and teaches you not to take life too seriousley. This is a book that takes you through some awkward experiences in her life...it made me laugh and cry...it makes you realise there are other people out there that has went through some very similar times...funny
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.
