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 Me?"
my first time listening to an audio book.This book not really my cup of tea=dispite sugar to sweeten the story!.
"Brilliantly honest and amusing"
Absolutely loved this book and it is great hearing it being read by Miranda herself as it really adds to the experience. Its amazing to see that her real life really does reflect that in the show Miranda on the TV. You can see where a lot of the material, expressions and characters came from. The whole book is based around her talking to her 18 year old self, which is briliiant - seeing the contrast of the hopeful young Miranda and the reality of the older, wiser and much happier in her skin Miranda. Can't recommend this enough. It was laugh out loud (whihc when sunbathing by the pool can be a little embarrassing!).
"No - It is not just you"
No Miranda, It is not just you.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Not only could I empathize but most importantly - Miranda gave me many good laughs. Listening to the book out walking there were some - many - suspicious glances at me, but who cares? I had the time of my life. (Yes I also loved Dirty Dancing). Thank you Miranda - another gem to light up others and my life with.
"Excellent listen, couldn't put down!"
This is a fantastic read for anyone who enjoys Miranda Hart's comedy and it elaborates a lot on jokes used in 'Miranda' and includes a lot more new classics! There's something for everyone in this book and it had me laughing throughout. I had a fantastic week as Miranda's 'Dear Listener Chum' and would highly recommend it to anyone else!
Quite nice to listen to,but I don't like when she puts on her silly high voice pretending to be her younger self. It's quite shrill and is annoying. Having said that the subjects she covers are funny just drop the high voice.
"Love this book, even better read by the author"
I love Miranda Hart's sense of humour. Being 6ft tall, 38 years old and single I can very much relate to all her jokes. This book in particular is very funny as she keeps talking with her younger 18 year old self. I sometimes wish I could have given my 18 year old self some advice. The best is that when Miranda reads this book, her voices differ slightly from the older and younger Miranda. Making younger Miranda much more impatient, superficial and flippant. Just like a teenager would be like, when getting advice from an adult. This book is a must have - especially in audiobook version.
I really enjoy Miranda's truthful encounters and kept me enlightened ,wanting to listen to more . Even when my free time had elapsed Her open minded quotes/ memories kept me wanting to listen more.
When I first purchased this audio book I though it may be a little dry and not inviting but I were very Wrong. You find yourself getting lost in the truth of the past and opens many memories you may have locked away in your locked memory.
This book was just what I needed after a few depressing books, good humoured fun, very funny and some really sweet bits too. Loved little Miranda, gets you thinking what your teenage self would think if they met you now. Also can't help but agree with her views of stationary and it's cupboards, it isn't just me.
I loved listening to this book it was listening to the TV series. It is hilariously funny and I think Miranda is one of the funniest woman comediennes around! Wouldn't we all like to tell our younger self how our life is going to pan out!! "Such Fun!!"
Downloaded this as i love Miranda Hart. Had already read the book previously but thought it wasnt the same as hearing her voice to go with it. Good book to download. To read in bed, curled up on the sofa or even in a fort:) (reference to book)
