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.

"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)
"Review from your MDLC"
Jeez this book is hilarious, I nearly wet myself at various points during.
This book would be perfect for anyone who watches 'miranda' and finds her funny.
Ps love you miranda
Miranda Hart writes well and performs well, so this is a delight. I have used an extract in my sixth form English classroom as a comparison to Cold Comfort Farm. Its satirical take on the life a young single English woman, whilst rooted in middle class observations, has a universality which had students sputtering. Thoroughly recommend it.
"Funny but irritating"
I usually love Miranda Hart and was really looking forward to this. I felt that it would be more enjoyable as an audio book because she was reading her own material. But I am afraid that I found her more shrill than on the television and actually quite annoying at times. It was funny in places but, sorry and I hate to have to say it but I think it would have been better as a book!
