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.

    "A hilarious & insightful romp."

    Miranda Hart expertly guides listeners on a romp through her world while helping to assure us that we are not alone in the often crazy & awkward situations we find ourselves in. I couldn't help but laugh out loud. Such fun!

    "I love Miranda. Why can't I love her book?"
    Any additional comments?

    I love Miranda's television work. Perhaps if I could see her performing the book it would have been better. Not sure.

    "So Sad it Ended!!!"

    We are three weeks apart in age so her 18 year old self was a mirror for me. This book is not only laugh out loud funny but also a great reminder to hold the good and bad life experiences and dreams close as they all form who you are. I can't wait to read Peggy & Me!

    "Couldn't listen to it"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Miranda Hart again?

    If it was narrated by someone else.


    What didn’t you like about Miranda Hart’s performance?

    Her voice was difficult to understand and was like nails on a chalkboard. It was so bad we couldn't listen very long before stopping completely.

    "Everything I dreamt it would be and more"

    Truly delightful from beginning to end. I only wanted more. I encourage all to listen to, instead of reading, this book. Miranda Hart's reading of it is everything.

    "Wonderful "

    I absolutely adored this book. I found myself frequently saying 'it is not just you' back to the book and then going off to start a conversation about that chapter with the nearest person.
    I find myself oddly grateful to have hobbies, but longing for a dog.

    "Not what I expected"

    I was a bit confused by this book as I was expecting a normal autobiography, it's not. Miranda tells stories about her childhood and when she is a bit older but she interrupts herself by talking in a childish voice pretending to be her younger self who asks questions. I watch Miranda tv programme and now understand that she must be exactly like that in real life. I'm not sure if I liked this book I, did'nt not like it but I did'nt love it.

    "Stick to the observational, Miranda"

    Is it just me, or did everyone else start getting confused, annoyed and generally peeved (now there's a good word, let me say it again slowly, peeeved) with Miranda's attempt to introduce characters in her book? Miranda certainly has a wicked eye for observational comedy, and the first two chapters started well. But in chapter 3 it all goes awry, voice overs with little Miranda start, merging into one another and before you know it, the ratatouille of a book has become a vegetable mush.

    Shame really. By the time the dog voice overs came in I'd had enough. This is the first audiobook I have had to discard - listening just became too painful. Stick to the observational stuff Miranda - you excel at this - but drop the Mike Yarwood attempts at dialogue.

    "A Brilliant Read"

    A light-hearted and thoroughly entertaining read, Miranda Hart's book offers an insight into her thoughts and past experiences, utilising this through the roleplay of another, 18 year old Miranda who pops up sometimes in the book. I would say it is just as funny as the Miranda sitcom, albeit a little predictable in some places - but this doesn't make it any less funny. Would definitely recommend.

    "Born to be an Audiobook writer."

    This audiobook is simply fantastic.



    I got it because I had a 8hr flight ahead of me and thought it would be a good way to kill some time.



    I had only heard one audiobook before and I had been very disappointed about it, but I thought I should give it another try, so I choose this one.



    I choose it because I figure it would be easy and light to hear over the long hours ahead, and it was. Of course if your familiar with the author you know she's meant to make you laugh, but hearing her through the pages just made it a wonderful experience. Like having your own personal stand up comedy show playing over the headphones.



    One fair waring tho; it might draw some attention to you, as you will be very likely end up laughing about all her nonsense and you might as well end up shouting some random answers to her questions.



    If you are in the edge of trying an audiobook this is the way to go. It will make you love the whole experience.

    "So entertaining!"

    I'd highly recommend listening to this book rather than reading it! Miranda's character comes across so strongly in the way she reads it, as well as through the book itself. Extremely entertaining from start to finish!

    Exactly the same witty miranda from the tv show, but in an audio book! Only listened to the first chapter and I love it... Definitely recommend it to anyone who loves miranda!

    "some what disapointing"
    What did you like best about Is It Just Me?? What did you like least?

    some of the humour is funny from Miranda ...the voice impression of the eighteen year old irritated me to the core and there was too much of it


    What other book might you compare Is It Just Me? to, and why?

    I don't think I can compare it so directly to anything I have listen to lately


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    It was not like her stand-up comedy which rattles along


    Was Is It Just Me? worth the listening time?

    sorry to say no....absolutely not ....from the TV shows I thought she did her herself down


    Any additional comments?

    her next book should be better.

    "Disappointing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I love Miranda Hart; I think she is very talented and funny ...that's why I bought this book. I enjoyed the fact that she narrates this herself and thus delivers punch lines and feelings in the right measure. However, while the majority of the book is funny, and reasonably well observed, the constant and extremely irritating interruptions by "her younger self" really spoil it. The high pitched and stupid comments by her “younger self” ruined the whole thing for me. Maybe she was trying to simulate the ‘asides’ to camera she does in her TV show, if that was the case ....it doesn’t work! Sorry Miranda this book has been a big disappointment.

    "disappointed"

    I am a real fan of Miranda on both the radio and the tv. I thought listening to Miranda read her own book would make it even more amusing.. Sadly not! I just found her conversations with " little Miranda" really annoying and the whole book rather depressing. I shall stick to her comedy persona in future.
