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.

    "Delightful romp"

    I loved listening to Miranda's stories. She was brutally, painfully honest about some of the most mortifying situations and I found myself chuckling throughout the entire book. She is an engaging, warm person with a gift for telling it like it is. I definitely will listen to this one again.

    Story
    "Hilarious and Relatable"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Is It Just Me? to be better than the print version?

    I would 100% recommend the audio edition of Is It Just Me. Miranda Hart narrating as her current self and as her younger self give all the quirky stories a sense of affability and warmth.


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

    I would compare this book to Tyler Oakley's 'Binge'. Both Miranda and Tyler narrate their own books, so it is much more personable for the listener/reader. They both tell stories about their life before fame and also their life after their successes. The comedic tone of Binge and Is It Just Me has you gasping for air in between the laughs, and the motivational themes explain to the reader/listener that it is okay to be different and anything can happen if you work hard and believe in yourself.


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

    Miranda does not have any other audiobooks out, however, her semi-autobiographical TV series 'Miranda' is a pretty good comparison. In both the Miranda and Is It Just Me, Miranda directly speaks to the audience as if they are in the same room as her. The both has hilariously embarrassing yet humbling stories and the tone of the show carries through the tone of the audiobook.


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

    The moments when present Miranda and younger Miranda interact are the moments that moved me the most. We all wish we could give our younger selves some advice from our future selves, and in this book that is exactly what Miranda does. She does it in a way that reassures her audience that it is okay to make mistakes, it is okay to embarrass yourself and it always okay to be 100% authentically you. She lets us know that you are not alone and most of the time it is not just you.

    "It's not just you."

    I always enjoy Miranda Hart's wit and it isn't just confined to her television appearances as this book proves. I could not have imagined it being read by anybody else other than Miranda herself. It was like sitting in a coffee shop with her while she told her funny anecdotes (except I was in my car and the coffee was from my local drive-thru). I laughed out loud to the stories she had to tell, which made for some funny glances when stopped at traffic lights. A thoroughly enjoyable listen and I would recommend it to anyone who has a sense of humour.

    "Love Miranda Hart, Didn't Love This Book"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I wouldn't, and it PAINS me to say that. I absolutely adore Miranda Hart--Miranda is one of my all-time favorite TV shows and I look up to her as a person--but this book just didn't do it for me. I went in expecting to break a rib laughing, and I found that it was... well... sort of boring. A lot of the jokes were repeats from her comedy appearances and the TV show, and I found it very hard to hear even when blasting it in my car.


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

    I haven't listened to any of her performances before, but I have watched her television show religiously and repeatedly. I love her, but I didn't love the book.

    "It was like Christmas!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Is It Just Me? to be better than the print version?

    It's better to have heard this book narrated by the comedic brilliance herself than having to read it. It made my face and stomach hurt.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There were many lessons to be learnt.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    chapter 20 - Christmas


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes!

    "Love Miranda, but this book is awful:"
    Any additional comments?

    The book reads like the punchlines to Miranda's self-titled show. She describes scenarios in which she makes a fool of herself in some relatable to the reader. We sympathize with her, yet the book didn't go beyond the scenarios. I wanted to hear back story and her rise to fame. I wanted a Tina Fey version of Miranda's story, yet I felt like I was reading a script from one of Miranda's episodes without it being funny at all. I had to turn it off.

    "Not what I expected"

    I was a bit confused by this book as I was expecting a normal autobiography, it's not. Miranda tells stories about her childhood and when she is a bit older but she interrupts herself by talking in a childish voice pretending to be her younger self who asks questions. I watch Miranda tv programme and now understand that she must be exactly like that in real life. I'm not sure if I liked this book I, did'nt not like it but I did'nt love it.

    "A Brilliant Read"

    A light-hearted and thoroughly entertaining read, Miranda Hart's book offers an insight into her thoughts and past experiences, utilising this through the roleplay of another, 18 year old Miranda who pops up sometimes in the book. I would say it is just as funny as the Miranda sitcom, albeit a little predictable in some places - but this doesn't make it any less funny. Would definitely recommend.

    "Born to be an Audiobook writer."

    This audiobook is simply fantastic.



    I got it because I had a 8hr flight ahead of me and thought it would be a good way to kill some time.



    I had only heard one audiobook before and I had been very disappointed about it, but I thought I should give it another try, so I choose this one.



    I choose it because I figure it would be easy and light to hear over the long hours ahead, and it was. Of course if your familiar with the author you know she's meant to make you laugh, but hearing her through the pages just made it a wonderful experience. Like having your own personal stand up comedy show playing over the headphones.



    One fair waring tho; it might draw some attention to you, as you will be very likely end up laughing about all her nonsense and you might as well end up shouting some random answers to her questions.



    If you are in the edge of trying an audiobook this is the way to go. It will make you love the whole experience.

    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!

    "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.

    "disappointed"

    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.

    "Stick to the observational, Miranda"

    Is it just me, or did everyone else start getting confused, annoyed and generally peeved (now there's a good word, let me say it again slowly, peeeved) with Miranda's attempt to introduce characters in her book? Miranda certainly has a wicked eye for observational comedy, and the first two chapters started well. But in chapter 3 it all goes awry, voice overs with little Miranda start, merging into one another and before you know it, the ratatouille of a book has become a vegetable mush.

    Shame really. By the time the dog voice overs came in I'd had enough. This is the first audiobook I have had to discard - listening just became too painful. Stick to the observational stuff Miranda - you excel at this - but drop the Mike Yarwood attempts at dialogue.
