Is It Just Me? | [Miranda Hart]

Is It Just Me?

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? 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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Hilarious-laugh out loud funny (which is awkward)"

    Okay, so I am a fan of Miranda Hart. And this book and performance doesn't disappoint. I haven't read the paper copy of this, but I can't help but feel that you must miss something if you don't get the joy of Miranda Hart's delivery of her own words. Of course, I might be biased, so sometime I'll have to pick up a copy.

    While this is a book about life lessons, and - as she calls them - the 'little moments', it manages to be thoughtful without being preachy. It's also very humorous, and full of the nearly-mortifying anecdotes I expect from Miranda Hart. The device of the narrator speaking to her younger self is also very effective, and somehow, the 2 characters are clearly distinguished to the listener - truly a show of Miranda's talent.

    It's a wonderful listen, and I can't recommend it enough.

    Story
    "A great comedienne"

    Only 38 years old when is is written and nothing much in one sense to write about except she is a very funny woman. The trick of speaking to her 18 year old self is illuminating, and carries some great insights into growing up. Her humour is very "British", and a sense of the absurd in everyday experiences. Great fun!

    "DELIGHTFUL"
    What made the experience of listening to Is It Just Me? the most enjoyable?

    Slow start, you think Miranda Hart is just waffling on at first but the book has a solid core and a really good point to it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    18 year old Miranda is a joy.


    What about Miranda Hart’s performance did you like?

    The conversational style. This is one of those books that is best listened to rather than read.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    If I told you it would be a spoiler alert, but I'm smiling as I write this.

    Story
    "No, It's not just you"
    If you could sum up Is It Just Me? in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, delightful, clever


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Miranda - present day
    Who doesn't find teenagers a little trying??? (sorry teens)


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    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


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I certainly had a number of laugh out loud moments and cringed at times when the stories came a little too close to home


    Any additional comments?

    I just adore Miranda

    "Delightful"
    Where does Is It Just Me? rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Near the top - partly by serendipity, I was in hospitals a lot and Hart's kind and funny book was a cheerful counterpoint


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Little Miranda. The interplay with her younger self was very sweet.


    Have you listened to any of Miranda Hart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Her TV and radio performances. I liked the way she handled the audiobook narration - very chatty and warm, with lots of asides and quips.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Lots of laughter. It's not stand-up comedy, but there were several moments I had to rewind because I was wheezing with laughter.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish it were twice as long. Just delightful.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Miranda Hart's narration


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Hard to choose. The book moves from strength to strength. Perfect. Hilarious throughout.

    Absolutely.

    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.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Miranda Hart again?

    possibly


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    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

    "some what disapointing"
    What did you like best about Is It Just Me?? What did you like least?

    some of the humour is funny from Miranda ...the voice impression of the eighteen year old irritated me to the core and there was too much of it


    What other book might you compare Is It Just Me? to, and why?

    I don't think I can compare it so directly to anything I have listen to lately


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    It was not like her stand-up comedy which rattles along


    Was Is It Just Me? worth the listening time?

    sorry to say no....absolutely not ....from the TV shows I thought she did her herself down


    Any additional comments?

    her next book should be better.

    "Disappointing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    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.

    Would you try another book written by Miranda Hart or narrated by Miranda Hart?

    Am afraid not. I liked her narration but found the content a bit forced.

    Not sure


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    This was the positive bit

    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.
