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.

"Is it just mw - or my personal choice!"
Well....... Miranda is OK on the TV but for me this doesn't quite work! Can't say why but with over 100 downloads in the last 7 years to my credit I found this really hard going.
Can't put my finger on it but I found it very repetative and 'same-ish'!
I will probably slated now - but its just my opinion!
"An amusing book - good for all Miranda fans"
I loved this book - made me laugh out loud. If you like Miranda the series you will like this, Glad I bought it on audio beause it is great to hear it read by Miranda herself.
"Or is it just me?"
Miranda - as younger Miranda too! It is 'such fun, such fun'. Catch phrases galore, easy listening, and enjoyable. Best enjoyed as short snacky bits, but a bit wearing if you listen to too much at once.
Not as funny as the TV series, however you get a feeling that Miranda has enjoyed reading it, as well as writing it.
Overall well worth a listen
"What I call, hilarious"
Really enjoyed listening to Miranda taking me on a romp through all sorts of subjects. I am going to miss being referred to as MDLC!
"Stick to the observational, Miranda"
Is it just me, or did everyone else start getting confused, annoyed and generally peeved (now there's a good word, let me say it again slowly, peeeved) with Miranda's attempt to introduce characters in her book? Miranda certainly has a wicked eye for observational comedy, and the first two chapters started well. But in chapter 3 it all goes awry, voice overs with little Miranda start, merging into one another and before you know it, the ratatouille of a book has become a vegetable mush.
Shame really. By the time the dog voice overs came in I'd had enough. This is the first audiobook I have had to discard - listening just became too painful. Stick to the observational stuff Miranda - you excel at this - but drop the Mike Yarwood attempts at dialogue.
I always enjoy having a book read by its author, but 'Is it just me' being read by Miranda Hart was a real treat. I thoroughly recommend listening to it on a long journey with friends. The time will fly by.
I really like Miranda Hart but this was just rubbish! So disappointing no part of it was worth listening to. I wish I had borrowed it from the library and at least then I could take it back unread, as it it it is on my ipod un-listened to. Sorry but that is the way I feel.
I absolutely love Miranda on the TV and thought, therefore, that I would enjoy this book. I was SO disappointed to find that I did not find it funny. I thought the interruptions of her 'younger' self became a pain really quickly and I did not even bother to finish it - the first time this has ever happened with an Audible book. Switched on her new series on TV and laughed like a drain!!! So may be it is just ME!?
"Spot on observations!"
A great audio book made better by the fact that Miranda is reading it. Spot on observations presented in her usual comedic style...... and no Miranda, it isn't just you!
"laugh a minute"
A fantastically entertaining book definitely worth a listen or read. Miranda is on talented woman who makes light of situations we can all relate to in life and some we can't
