    "I feel ripped off"

    It's like the whole thing is a joke .... like she wrote an awful book laughed about it and said let's see how much money I can make from idiots buying this pointless book that is going literally no where ... it was boring and not that funny ... it was sad because I really love her but this was a disappointment

    "A little disappointed."

    She's great but wasn't a great book. I definitely laughed a few times but a lot of it was really empty if that makes any sense.

    "Not for me"

    Poop - I was SOO excited to listen to a book written and read by Ellen. Unfortunately I'm disappointed... I literally had the thought "I wonder if she forgot she had a deadline and just wrote mindlessly for hours before it was do". Regardless, I'm still an Ellen fan and I hear the message she was trying to get across,... be kind and present and don't take things to seriously and be a good person... all the qualities Ellen displays in her show. I just felt like the actual stories and words and delivery lacked soul. I'm over halfway through the book and feel no drive to finish other than my OCD of not finishing what I started. Maybe I should try one of her other books.

    "My first audiobook and I am beyond impressed"

    I loved this book so much that I was really sad it was over. I Lol'd, and even snorted a few times.

    Ellen set the bar high. Come on other authors....show me what you've got!

    "wanted more"

    I love Ellen so I was really excited to listen to this and it was really comforting to be able to hear it from her own perspective and her voice and hear all the little you know emphasis that she would put on certain things. That means sad I didn't think the content was complete, seemed a little choppy which I know is what the style was worth, I just wanted something a little bit deeper I love her positive messages and she touched on it but I could have listened to a whole book of her talking about how to be kind to one another

    "I love you Ellen, but I couldn't finish the book."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    As I watch Ellen every day on TV I found I heard a lot of her stories or beliefs there. If you hope to learn something about her life and her journey, you won't find it in this book. It was a lot of gibberish in my opinion, which I found surprising as I love her and her show so very much. I just didn't get anything from the book and couldn't finish it. I believe another review stated something along the same line, that it was a lot filler, and that is very true. The book was very silly, so if you like Ellen being silly , then you should enjoy the book. I made it to about chapter 26 and laughed only once in that time. Not what I was expecting at all. Sorry Ellen, I love you but this book was a huge flop for me!

    "I love Ellen! But I didn't love this book"
    What did you love best about Seriously...I'm Kidding?

    Ellen's performance. Her tone set me at ease in traffic and her silliness always makes me smile.


    What was most disappointing about Ellen DeGeneres’s story?

    Most of the book just seemed like long stream of thought. I don't believe she put much effort or thoughtfulness into the content.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Nothing stands out as great like her stand up comedy videos or show.


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

    None. It was all pretty flat.

    "Disappointed"

    I was really hoping to learn more about Ellen and her life in this book, but was sorely let down. It's an entire book of her just cracking jokes, but it came across annoying because you wanted her to stop telling jokes and just get down and get real. I love Ellen, but did not love this book.

    "Entertaining, funny."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, I find Ellen very funny, and this was nice to listen to, some chapters were better than others, some of them left me quite disappointed, but some chapters were outright funny, so overall worth it.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Ellen DeGeneres? Why or why not?

    yes I will because I really like her. She's very funny. But it would have to be read by her too.


    What about Ellen DeGeneres’s performance did you like?

    the best thing about this book is that it's read by the author.


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

    No, it's too long for one sitting for me personally. You could probably do it if you were on the beach with no kids or something like that..


    Any additional comments?

    Just about 3 chapters that I really would recommend to skip.. but it has more than 50 chapters,so overall a good fun listen.

    "Favorite of Ellen"

    I know that there wasn't exactly a story line in there and Ellen didn't present detailed information about her own personal life. But she did share the knowledge and truths what she had learned over these years. I love her monologues on the show and this book is basically that. She shares her thoughts and beliefs and observations in a very positive and funny way. It is a relaxing and uplifting book, which reminds us that it is alright to have fun and act silly from time to time. It is not a serious book and you will not gain deep rooted messages to think about throughout your years, it is simply a little time to stop and enjoy the funnier side of life. I enjoyed listening to her and anyone who loves Ellen, will enjoy it, too.

    "Sassy Dory"

    Ellen is just simply a wonderful, uplifting, hilarious, inspirational woman.

    She's honest and can laugh at herself. Which we all need to be able to do. Life is short and we need to be living it not complaining about what makes it up.



    It's a goofy feel good read I enjoyed every minute of it. The quick chapters just make you feel like you speed right on through it.

    Really enjoyed this, Ellen is a favourite of mine, but im not one for autobiographies or anything like this normally but as it was ellen thought id give it a listen and am so glad I did. I enjoyed this book very much, made me laugh out loud and was very interesting and can honestly say loved it from start to finish well worth a listen and with Ellen reading it makes it even better.
