Publisher's Summary

"I've experienced a whole lot the last few years, and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax, and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?"
---Ellen DeGeneres

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.

Okay

I guess when I think of Ellen I think of someone really inspiring. This book kind of seemed a little thrown together and less cared about than some of her other works. But it was also still fun and sarcastic just like she's always been. This book has no real meaning to it. It's just meant to be fun and a good read. It's not meant to be incredibly thought provoking. You're getting exactly what the title says. She's kidding. But that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Just depends on the mood you're in and what kind of read you're looking for. Overall I still enjoyed the less serious tone of the book.
