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 a funny, vibrant personality and this shines through in her book, full of witty observations and amusing anecdotes. I llistened to it in one sitting and enjoyed every moment, and I found her conversational style engaging and fun
I really enjoyed listening to this audio book I already had the book and was part of the way through when I was told you could get the audio book and that it was read by the author, Miranda Hart. It was really funny while at the same time being very interesting, I couldn't wait to listen to the ext part. I found myself relating to some of the things she was saying and it is an easy listen but yet you do want to keep listening which I find doesn't happen with all easy listening books.
"Amazing- lots of laughs"
This is an amazingly written book with lots of laughs! Miranda Hart makes it feel like she is talking to you personally and it gives great insight to her personality! I would highly recommend this audio book
A very funny account of miranda's life told from the poibt of view of her reassuring her 18 year old self that it will all be ok. Despite some parts getting a little repetative, the fact that it is read by Miranda. Hart makes it all the better!
"Its not just Miranda!"
"Is It Just Me?" is a great 'listen', enhanced by being read by Miranda Hart, to the extent that its like listening to a friend recounting (countless!) funny anecdotes over a cup of coffee. I have listened to it several times, initially on the train, but subsequently at home, in private so I can laugh out-loud without the embarrassment! No Miranda, its not just you who finds yourself in embarrassing situations, its anyone who listens to your book in public!
"Hmmm ok to good I guess"
Well my mum absolutely loves this book, my dad hates it and I'm somewhere in between.
There are parts of this book that make me laugh and there are parts where I'm bored and my mind wanders elsewhere (not such a good thing when driving) but all in all I'd say it was ok. I would not recommend buying it at full price, it cost me £3.99 and I wouldn't pay a lot more I'm afraid.
"it isn't just you"
the funniest book I have ever listened to. so compelling to be read to by Miranda. I couldn't help but obey all the tasks aloud. laughed from start to finish only sad moment was when it ended.
I had many a laugh out loud moment while listening to this. Miranda is very witty and she speaks the truth about so many things in this book. I liked the way she talks to her 18 year old self too. Easy book to listen to while cooking, commuting etc. I'd thoroughly recommend it to anyone with a sense of humour.
This audio book version of Miranda's 'is it just me' is fantastic. Read by Miranda herself, her phrasing, tone, etc makes this even funnier. Its different than other autobiographies, telling the story under themes. I would definitely recommend the the audio version if you are a fan of the Miranda sitcom. Overall very funny, easy to listen to. I loved it!
"Cliché ahead.......Such Fun!!"
A really enjoyable book, made much more memorable by being read by the author. I loved the essay based approach to the book, and the format was great, save for the voice of 'young Miranda', which grated somewhat....
