    "disappointed"

    Let me first say, I love Ellen and was very excited to listen to her book. But I think I half-smiled twice, and it was very disappointing. I got the feeling maybe she was under contract to do another book, didn't really want to, so just rambled for a few hours about nothing to fulfill her obligation.

    "Ellen always delivers"

    Another great listen from Ellen. Several laugh out loud moments. She mixes funny stories with just a touch of seriousness. Makes you want to be her best friend.

    "Disappointing"
    What disappointed you about Seriously...I'm Kidding?

    I was hoping to learn more about Ellen. This wasn't that at all.

    It felt like listening to a stand up routine, and not one of her best.


    Has Seriously...I'm Kidding turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Ellen is funny and she made me laugh a few times for sure.

    "Great, feel good, listen for road trip"

    I love that Ellen narrates this book. It wouldn't be the same if it was someone else. It was the perfect book to listen to on our 4 hour drive home from vacation. It made me feel happy instead of dreading coming back to reality. Some of it is plum nonsense, but... It's Ellen! I would recommend this to any Ellen lover out there.

    "All over the place. I was getting a headache. "

    1st, it won't make it better, I adore Ellen and I think she is funny, when her thoughts are in order. I felt this book was all over the place and lacked focus. I couldn't get the funny from it due to the headache I recieved keeping up. Please forgive me. I really wanted to like it.

    "Cute!"

    I enjoyed some of the little vignettes, but the book to have nearly as much substance as I had hoped it would. Ellen is a great narrator - her personality really shows.

    "So much fun"

    Ellen did an amazing job narrating her own book. I don't think it would have been the same in anyone else's voice.

    Although she says almost everything with a dash (at least) of levity, she also has some great messages in this book.

    Ellen really is an amazing, kind, strong, smart, and hilarious woman. I will be listening to her other books as well. This book really helped make my commutes and daily walks enjoyable.

    "Too Silly"

    Really gutted about this book. She's so funny! But I wanted abit more info about her life not silly noises, and loads of info about how I should live my life. I though it was an autobiography?

    "Fluff. Pleasant fluff, but fluff nonetheless."
    Would you try another book written by Ellen DeGeneres or narrated by Ellen DeGeneres?

    Narrated? Definitely. I enjoy Ellen's patter and I'm a big fan of hers. The performance was the saving grace of these three hours.

    Written? Well... that's another story. There's nothing to this book. There are a few funny bits, of course, but probably fewer than you'd get watching one episode of her show (or binge watching clips on YouTube). She also tries to bring forward her thoughts on positivity and self-worth, but never gets beyond the surface or says anything that couldn't fit on a greeting card.

    Its like she tried to write a memoir, a self-help book, and a comedy book all at once, but didn't trust her audience to stick with her for more than a few hours. What you're left with is a disappointing jack-of-all trades with no depth or direction.

    I wouldn't absolutely rule out another book by her, but I'll be very suspicious of future offerings, which is a shame. I know she can do better.

    "Funny and easy listen"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Good for a laugh and gives a few points on which to think on. It was read like an extension of her monologues. Not to expect a deep, thought provoking serious novel which looks greatly into Ellen's personal life or anything like that or even following any story line of sorts. It was an overall light, relaxing, funny, random and enjoyable book to listen to and there were many moments which made me laugh throughout the book. The narration by Ellen herself added humour and a warmth to the book which i greatly enjoyed listening to it from beginning to end.

    Great listen for any fan of Ellen

    "Friendly drivel"

    I thought I’d try this as a bit of light relief from the thrillers or serious novels I usually get. Ellen as a narrator is good; her voice is warm and engaging. Unfortunately the book itself is pure drivel. I expected after the glib introduction that it would settle down to some kind of interesting context, but it doesn’t, she skips through wise cracks on a number of topics without really saying anything at all. I gave up after chapter 7 and fast forwarded in the hope that I hit on something worthwhile. I didn’t. Very disappointing.

    "I'd be disappointed if I paid for this!"

    I got this as a free download and am glad, because if I'd paid the asking price I would be pretty annoyed. It's like she says in the book, she's signed up to write a book by accident and has to fill it with random things. Don't get me wrong, some of it is quite funny, but it is basically just filling time mostly. If it wasn't for her celebrity status, this book wouldn't have got anywhere near a publisher.

    "A little immature & pointless in places, but still a big fan"

    I love love love Ellen!!

    She is thought provoking and a serious genuine role model.

    This book is funny, informative, silly, somewhat pointless in places (chapter 36-38 if I remember correctly) but still 'simply Ellen' as we know and love her.

    The pointless bits did irritate me and I felt she was trying to 'fill the book' but, know what Ellen? You didn't need that! You are already an inspiration to so many people. Maybe with high insight you could have left those parts out. (Maybe in your next book, eh?)

    I've listened to this book 3 or 4 times now and I am still a fan!!
