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.

"Very funny but you need to be fan of her style of"
Miranda's style in the book is very much the same as her comedy show so if you liked that you will love the book. It is not an autobiography more just a lot of rambling thoughts and some tales from childhood linked together by involving the reader/listener to look at themselves and ask if this has happened to them or, as the title says, is it just Mianda. It has a number of laugh out loud moments and her reading style is almost like she is chatting to you.. I would recommend this book to fans and anyone wanting to be cheered up.
Miranda Hart reads her own book 'Is It Just Me?' and she does so in such a classic Miranda style that you cannot help but love it! She is relaxed and intimate with the listener whilst maintaining her usual air of misguided confidence. She clearly writes as she speaks and, let's face it, we love her on the telly for that frank, honest way she rips the proverbial out of herself.
I like the way she tries to explain to her younger self why she is where she is now because I can really relate to that - I'm positive my 18 year old self would be gobsmacked to know how differently my life turned out!
All this she does with a healthy sense of humour and without taking herself seriously. I loved it and would thoroughly recommend it, especially to Miranda fans.
"Is It Just Me?"
To hear Miranda narrate her own book is fantastic. Recommend this book as one to whiz through, light hearted and very funny, well worth reading/listening too
This is my first purchase. I rarely read books, I am afraid to admit but I really like listening, much easier and you can do other things at the same time.
I think you have to like Miranda on television, to like this book. It is great having the author reading to you. I LOVE 18 year old Miranda.
I really recommend this : )
"Is it just me?"
I love Miranda Hart, so funny and this comes across to the listener of this well written book. Loved the fact take Miranda read it , it may not have been so funny if it were read by anyone else and I recommend it as a audio book rather than the self read book. Excellent.
"It is just her!"
Entertaining and read by the author, exactly as she does it on television, with comic asides to the listener.
"Hearty laughs and refreshingly honest"
This book is everything we love about Miranda. Heartwarming stories mix with her usual brand of self-deprecating humour, all read by the author herself, to create a book that can easily be listened to in short bursts or all day.
I won't give any content away but, if you're a fan of Miranda Hart, then this should be considered a definite must-have.
A great audio book hilarious to listen to wherever you are. You will benefit even more if you are familiar with Miranda's own tv show which is a humorous watch for the family or alone.
"Classic Miranda Hart at her best"
Listening to the audible version of "Is It Just Me" narrated by Miranda Hart was a blast of great fun right from the start. A long drive to Suffolk disappearred in an instant and was of the funniest journeys ever.
If you like me love Miranda Hart in her television programme you will enjoy Is it Just Me? This book is her hilarious take on life and its trials and tribulations. She has a unique take on ordinary situations which nevertheless ring true to everyone and it often made me laugh out loud.
