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.

    "I relate to her, just not to the structure"

    I really like Miranda, she comes across so well in this book. It's not an autobiography as such, it's more interesting in fact. I've found myself really enjoying some of her thoughts on things that I've always found baffling. Some of it is laugh out loud funny.



    The thing that made me give this four stars was the way she's structured it. I love how she's gone to the trouble of adapting this to refer to us as her dear listeners rather than readers. She's clearly taken a lot of care with this recording. But she has a device of using her 18 year old self to reflect on how things have turned out, and whilst it's a good idea for a bit, it just gets a little annoying.

    "It isn't just me!"

    What a relief! A brutally honest look into social ineptitude, with topics such as 'What to do when you end up in your pants in an interview', and 'How to handle an angry person with dwarfism that you have mistaken for a child and picked up' - Am so relieved to discover it isn't just me! Vay vay vay funny, reassuringly ridiculous, and full of wise advice from the adult Miranda to the young Miranda. What I wouldn't have done to have read this book as a gawky, awkward, seemingly hopeless 15 year old. Brilliant.

    "Hilarious"

    I listened to this while walking the dog - perhaps too funny for listening to in public as it constantly makes you laugh out loud.

    "Excellent Title"

    This book is absolutely fantastic, at first I read it, but now I can listen to it on the go. If you love Miranda's TV show, then you will certainly love this book. The things she talks about are absolutely true, and this book had me laughing all the way. The thing that makes this audio book better is that it is also read by Miranda herself, so her wit comes through very clearly. Excellent service and quality from Audible.

    "Such fun!"

    I was a late comer to the delights of Miranda, catching a few episodes on TV but loving it immediately. The book is exactly the same and I'm SO glad I bought it as an audio book as having it narrated by Miranda herself just makes it absolutely perfect ... I don't think it would work with anyone else reading it. I love the fact that its funny and has all the little sayings that she incorporates into her TV series, but also has some insight into Miranda's younger life with "18 year old Miranda" making a contribution. She makes a complete connection with her listeners, referring to us as "MDLC - my dear listener chum" and really draws you into her world, both now and 20 years ago. Absolutely 5 star brilliance! Review by Paul's wife, the actual MDLC!

    "First audiobook and my wife liked it."

    This has been my wife's first exposure to an audio book and she is very pleased with it. It is narrated by Miranda herself and therefore does not disappoint. She has also been very pleased with the content, so all in all a very pleasant experience. I am sure we will be buying more is the near future.

    "Fantastic!"

    Although, it seems like it is a Biography title, it is more Miranda Hart rambling and having a good 'ol Chinwag with a good friend. She is so much like herself you see in interviews and on the television this is a real treat for her fans. You can seat there for hours and listen to her and find yourself laughing, whether you are on the sofa with a cup of tea, or commuting to work. WORD OF CAUTION: This may make you laugh out loud and make you seem odd in public!

    "Awesome"

    If you watch Miranda on tv, you'll love her book, narrated by her makes it even better.



    My favourite bit is her chatting to her pooch.



    Get this and you won't be, as i say, disappointed. ;)

    "Such Fun"

    If you are a fan of Miranda Hart, this book will not disappoint. The ad libs for the the audio book make it even more entertaining than the written version. A totally enjoyable listen which will make you smile.
