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.

    "fantastic!"

    I'm a big fan of Miranda so maybe this review is a bit biased. But nevermind, I really loved this book, it was such fun!



    And Miranda narrating it was superb, she is SO GOOD. It seemed as if she was really enjoying reading her book.



    I loved this book, every minute of it.

    Performance
    Story
    "Funny but not hilarious"
    If you could sum up Is It Just Me? in three words, what would they be?

    I love Miranda!


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    It was disappointing when compared to the brilliant TV series. Her younger self was extremely irritating and ruined the whole listening experience for me.


    What about Miranda Hart’s performance did you like?

    Miranda was an excellent narrator and made the listening experience more authentic. It would not have felt right if someone different had narrated it.


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

    No, but only because of her younger self.

    "The best for a very serious mind"

    I have always been a serious, almost humor-less person. I am aware of it and I have to admit that fairy tales and comic reads amuse me more than anything. They shift my thoughts from one of melancholy and cynical into one of life and sheer vibrancy. Miranda is hilarious and I like the existence of the young Miranda in her work because it gave me the chance to reflect and laugh, as against feeling humiliated, at my follies of years ago.

    Story
    "Only in Bitesize Pieces"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story line, more character differentiation and a fraction of the time


    Would you ever listen to anything by Miranda Hart again?

    I would certainly give it a try


    Would you be willing to try another one of Miranda Hart’s performances?

    Yes


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Is It Just Me??

    A bit of everything


    Any additional comments?

    Miranda in bite size pieces can be quite amusing, But after 30 minutes I seemed to have had a Miranda humour bypass. Some clever ideas, eg LIttle M, but too much and too samey in story and in voice. Sorry Miranda but you have done far funnier and superior stuff

    Story
    "Well narrated and the story was generally alright"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    As someone who has not seen the TV program it was not what I was expecting.

    It is more a story about someone moaning about being slightly different rather than a story.

    It is well narrated and great tone throughout. It was more a bit of a giggle rather than a real belly laugh. This may be more because I have not seen Miranda before.


    What will your next listen be?

    How to Fall in Love - Cecelia Shern


    What about Miranda Hart’s performance did you like?

    Great enthusiasm with the narration


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    No

    Story
    "Fun if a little too 'Miranda' for me, at times!"
    Would you try another book written by Miranda Hart or narrated by Miranda Hart?

    Possibly but it did verge on too much silliness for me


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Miranda's nuances were great but sometimes I felt a little irritated by those nuances too!


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    Probably not

    "Mirandaland heaven!"

    This is Miranda at her very best, with all her awkwardness, continuously finding herself in hilarious situations. Narrated in her soft, apologetic tone, she relays her life story in a way that makes you want to laugh out loud and cringe with embarrassment on her behalf. Had all these mishaps happened to anyone else, they would perhaps seem far fetched and unbelievable but not in this case. 18 year old Miranda is a lovely addition and her outbursts of disgust and horror at the way her 38 year old self has turned out is priceless.

    Having listened to this book twice over, I dip into it constantly when I feel the need for a Miranda fix. Gentle, laugh out loud, slapstick brilliance.

    "Wonderfully Entertaining"

    This was my first foray into audio books and I purchased it to listen to after an operation. It was fab - easy to dip in and out of and great for light entertainment when I was feeling rough. Miranda has a wonderful way of describing the world in a way we can all relate to and I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone who enjoys her show.

    "Disappointing"

    I love the Miranda TV series - so looked forward to listening to this. However it's just plain silly - tedious - and predictable. So disappointed - I managed 2 hours of the 7 - and gave up - I won't be finishing this one
