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.

not bad! fairly repetitive but true to Miranda Hart's style. Entertaining for different ages.
true to kind
Funny, delightful, clever
Miranda - present day
Who doesn't find teenagers a little trying??? (sorry teens)
I loved listening to Miranda do her own narration but it was a little hard to listen to her doing the voice of little Miranda especially listening with ear bud headphones
I certainly had a number of laugh out loud moments and cringed at times when the stories came a little too close to home
I just adore Miranda
Near the top - partly by serendipity, I was in hospitals a lot and Hart's kind and funny book was a cheerful counterpoint
Little Miranda. The interplay with her younger self was very sweet.
Her TV and radio performances. I liked the way she handled the audiobook narration - very chatty and warm, with lots of asides and quips.
Lots of laughter. It's not stand-up comedy, but there were several moments I had to rewind because I was wheezing with laughter.
I wish it were twice as long. Just delightful.
If you are looking for a hilarious book read by book's equally hilarious author, this is for you. Those who enjoy Miranda Hart's work will adore this. As others have said, it is such fun! Very funny life stories and observations delivered in true Miranda style.
Miranda Hart's narration
Hard to choose. The book moves from strength to strength. Perfect. Hilarious throughout.
She is a fantastic comedian but the book is boring drivel. I was excited that she was reading it herself but it just didn't happen for me.
I'd highly recommend listening to this book rather than reading it! Miranda's character comes across so strongly in the way she reads it, as well as through the book itself. Extremely entertaining from start to finish!
I love the Miranda TV series - so looked forward to listening to this. However it's just plain silly - tedious - and predictable. So disappointed - I managed 2 hours of the 7 - and gave up - I won't be finishing this one
I love Miranda Hart; I think she is very talented and funny ...that's why I bought this book. I enjoyed the fact that she narrates this herself and thus delivers punch lines and feelings in the right measure. However, while the majority of the book is funny, and reasonably well observed, the constant and extremely irritating interruptions by "her younger self" really spoil it. The high pitched and stupid comments by her “younger self” ruined the whole thing for me. Maybe she was trying to simulate the ‘asides’ to camera she does in her TV show, if that was the case ....it doesn’t work! Sorry Miranda this book has been a big disappointment.
Am afraid not. I liked her narration but found the content a bit forced.
This was the positive bit
A few funny moments but not many
I am a real fan of Miranda on both the radio and the tv. I thought listening to Miranda read her own book would make it even more amusing.. Sadly not! I just found her conversations with " little Miranda" really annoying and the whole book rather depressing. I shall stick to her comedy persona in future.
"Its not just her!"
As expected a brilliant listen, I laughed a lot and found myself compelled to do the little tasks she sets along the way. Thoroughly enjoyable listen for any Miranda Hart fan. Some of the story's of events that have happened to her make you wonder how exaggerated the sitcom really is but also within it are some very insightful thoughts and comments that make you look at modern life from an outsiders view thanks to the use of 18 YO Miranda commenting and questing modern technology and lifestyle
"Miranda Never Lets You Down"
Bought this for my daughter, who loves Miranda. She's a very funny lady and reads her own book very well - we'd expect nothing less of this very cheerful fruitcake.
I intend to listen to the whole thing while slaving over a hot stove during the Christmas holidays, I'm sure it will make the process much more festive!
Fun and a good listen; Miranda's style is light and entertaining. Always liked watching her work, and that does span more than just her sitcom, but this gives a good insight into what make her tick. I especially liked the life affirming ending, it's left me with a real motivation to make my heart sing.
"" Its what I call " Very funny !!!"
Loved this audiobook, it had me giggling out loud in public places. Being narrated by the author was fantastic and made the book for me 5 Stars from me .
"Absolute such fun."
Exactly the same witty miranda from the tv show, but in an audio book! Only listened to the first chapter and I love it... Definitely recommend it to anyone who loves miranda!
