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.

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.

Delightful romp

I loved listening to Miranda's stories. She was brutally, painfully honest about some of the most mortifying situations and I found myself chuckling throughout the entire book. She is an engaging, warm person with a gift for telling it like it is. I definitely will listen to this one again.

Hilarious and Relatable

Would you consider the audio edition of Is It Just Me? to be better than the print version?

I would 100% recommend the audio edition of Is It Just Me. Miranda Hart narrating as her current self and as her younger self give all the quirky stories a sense of affability and warmth.

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

I would compare this book to Tyler Oakley's 'Binge'. Both Miranda and Tyler narrate their own books, so it is much more personable for the listener/reader. They both tell stories about their life before fame and also their life after their successes. The comedic tone of Binge and Is It Just Me has you gasping for air in between the laughs, and the motivational themes explain to the reader/listener that it is okay to be different and anything can happen if you work hard and believe in yourself.

Have you listened to any of Miranda Hart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Miranda does not have any other audiobooks out, however, her semi-autobiographical TV series 'Miranda' is a pretty good comparison. In both the Miranda and Is It Just Me, Miranda directly speaks to the audience as if they are in the same room as her. The both has hilariously embarrassing yet humbling stories and the tone of the show carries through the tone of the audiobook.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The moments when present Miranda and younger Miranda interact are the moments that moved me the most. We all wish we could give our younger selves some advice from our future selves, and in this book that is exactly what Miranda does. She does it in a way that reassures her audience that it is okay to make mistakes, it is okay to embarrass yourself and it always okay to be 100% authentically you. She lets us know that you are not alone and most of the time it is not just you.

It's not just you.

I always enjoy Miranda Hart's wit and it isn't just confined to her television appearances as this book proves. I could not have imagined it being read by anybody else other than Miranda herself. It was like sitting in a coffee shop with her while she told her funny anecdotes (except I was in my car and the coffee was from my local drive-thru). I laughed out loud to the stories she had to tell, which made for some funny glances when stopped at traffic lights. A thoroughly enjoyable listen and I would recommend it to anyone who has a sense of humour.

Love Miranda Hart, Didn't Love This Book

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I wouldn't, and it PAINS me to say that. I absolutely adore Miranda Hart--Miranda is one of my all-time favorite TV shows and I look up to her as a person--but this book just didn't do it for me. I went in expecting to break a rib laughing, and I found that it was... well... sort of boring. A lot of the jokes were repeats from her comedy appearances and the TV show, and I found it very hard to hear even when blasting it in my car.

Have you listened to any of Miranda Hart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't listened to any of her performances before, but I have watched her television show religiously and repeatedly. I love her, but I didn't love the book.

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.

So disappointed

I absolutely love Miranda on the TV and thought, therefore, that I would enjoy this book. I was SO disappointed to find that I did not find it funny. I thought the interruptions of her 'younger' self became a pain really quickly and I did not even bother to finish it - the first time this has ever happened with an Audible book. Switched on her new series on TV and laughed like a drain!!! So may be it is just ME!?

Its not just her!

As expected a brilliant listen, I laughed a lot and found myself compelled to do the little tasks she sets along the way. Thoroughly enjoyable listen for any Miranda Hart fan. Some of the story's of events that have happened to her make you wonder how exaggerated the sitcom really is but also within it are some very insightful thoughts and comments that make you look at modern life from an outsiders view thanks to the use of 18 YO Miranda commenting and questing modern technology and lifestyle

Miranda Never Lets You Down

Bought this for my daughter, who loves Miranda. She's a very funny lady and reads her own book very well - we'd expect nothing less of this very cheerful fruitcake.

I intend to listen to the whole thing while slaving over a hot stove during the Christmas holidays, I'm sure it will make the process much more festive!

Recommending it

Fun and a good listen; Miranda's style is light and entertaining. Always liked watching her work, and that does span more than just her sitcom, but this gives a good insight into what make her tick. I especially liked the life affirming ending, it's left me with a real motivation to make my heart sing.

Disappointed

I am afraid this book is not for me ,I thought I was perhaps harsh .Let my daughter who is an avid fan and in her early twenties a listen.

Result she didn't like it either.Shame as we both laugh out loud at this actress in her comedy show,and found her super in midwifes.

Hilarious and Full of truth

What made the experience of listening to Is It Just Me? the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed this book so much because I could relate to so much of the content. What a great idea to look back to your teenage self!

What did you like best about this story?

I don't know whether it was the prawn incident in the restaurant or the toilet paper streaming out the back of her tights. The descriptions of the technology is hilarious.

Which character – as performed by Miranda Hart – was your favourite?

I love both Miranda's 38year old Miranda is wonderful and not afraid of anything and 18 year old Miranda is so hopeful.

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

Yes over and over again. I will happily listen to it again also, each time I get another bit of information that I was giggling through the previous times.

Any additional comments?

Well done Miranda Hart, you are my hero!

Very funny, if you love 'Miranda' you'll love it.

I wasn't sure what to expect from an audiobook version of Miranda Hart's comedy. Turns out I loved it. She's a thoroughly entertaining narrator and the story is a brilliant extension of her comedy. It's more of a chicks listen, there are a number of moments of awkwardness that I can completely identify and found myself feeling understood and positive by the end of the book. Highly recommend for anyone who has ever been a female anywhere from 1 to 40!

Miranda Hart has a talent with words

the book is good ill recommend this book to all my friends.
Miranda Hart was always going to be a funny writer, but I've found more depth than could ever have imagined. She's given herself to this book, honestly and without shame and it has made me want to live my life more like she does. Truly honored to have read it.
