Publisher's Summary

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: comedienne, actress, obedient child of immigrant professionals, and now, writer.

With a blend of witty confessions and unscientific observations, Mindy writes about everything from being a timid young chubster afraid of her own bike to living the Hollywood life, dating, friendships, and planning her own funeral - all executed with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls.

Phoning it in

Just felt so...read. Might as well just read the book. Take note from Drew Barrymore's Wildflower or anything by Danielle Laporte. Shallow, vapid...sure it's funny but I don't think that's enough.

Fun n light read

Being a Mindy fan it's hard to dislike the book. it's funny n relatable. Ideal for people who are travelling or commute a distance at work to enjoy a light hearted story.

A great read for NBC comedy fans!

For Office fans/ who have followed Kaling's career this is inspiring, heart warming, funny. she has some great things to say about feminism, comedy, writing, work ethic in showbiz and values that can be applied to any field without being preachy AT ALL

want a headache?

Her voice and manner of speech is absolutely irritating. Just listening to it will give u a huge headache guaranteed. Content wise, half the book are mad ramblings about what the author doesn't like and is not even half funny. Most listeners will end up either confused or not liking the content. I'd definitely recommend to pass on this one. Two hours of this was enough to make me wanna jump out of a window from a very tall skyscraper. Basically this is a four hour meaningless rant. If I wanted to listen to someone, whining and complaining for 4 hours. I'd be listening to my wife.

Love! Love! Love!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes! I am listening to it for my second time and it is still as funny as the first time!

What other book might you compare Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? to and why?

Tina Fey maybe? Mindy puts everything her way and she is hilarious doing so!

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

I laughed so hard I cried! On public transport!

Any additional comments?

Buy it!

Always so so funny and easy to listen to!

Amazing throughout, incredibly funny and wise at the same but with a necessary touch of silly. I couldn't put it and can't wait to read the book!

A Mixed Experience

Would you try another book written by Mindy Kaling or narrated by Mindy Kaling?

Overall, I found this book funny, warm, laid-back-easy-listening... at times a little irritating. Her remarks on men and culture were at times quite brash and cringeworthy. Mindy admits that she fails when it comes to making racist jokes...I wholeheartedly agree, and fail to understand why she persisted with it anyway even though she knew it was an epic glitch.

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

Her honesty made it interesting.

What about Mindy Kaling’s performance did you like?

I thought it was well read. I like that she didn't read everything. If an audiobook is more than one hour long, I think it helps to have different narrators drop by occasionally. Nice touch.

Could you see Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

I'd say the Mindy project is the TV series of this book.

The surface level entertainment

I love Mindy. I think she's entertaining and inspiring. So when I heard the sound bite of this audio book I was excited.
When I started listening to the book Mindy's animated voice kept my interest- but after a while I realised that I wasn't being stimulated mentally.
This audio story is very safe- it skims the surface, and I feel Mindy has more to her than this. I kinda wish I'd downloaded Lena Dunhams book.

Sorry Mindy- but I wouldn't recommend this

I love Mindy Kaling about a million times more than I did before I read this, and I already loved her a lot.

Fun but a little insubstantial.

Mindy Kaling is a gifted comic with a lot of skill, but I found this book surprisingly flimsy and vapid. I listened to the whole thing in one go, and it felt fun and also like a bit of a waste of time, like watching a dance movie marathon when you have your period. I don't want to slate her, because I do think she's really funny, but this is a bit like listening to a self-centred fifteen year old monologuing.

Aaaand I didn't want to mention it because hey, be who you are and everything, but her voice is really, really grating after a while.

Nothing special

She really loves herself and is bigheaded. Some funny bits but nothing major. I don't know how the book got so many great reviews? It is nothing special comparing to similar books.

Like watching an episode of the Mindy project

Little did this Mindy know she would speak almost everything into existence after finishing this book. The oceans eleven thing? Her own show? come on. If you enjoy the office, Mindy project or ... comedy in general. Pls listen. Only listen when you’re driving if you’re a good multitasker as I legit almost rear-ended someone every morning on the way to work from cracking up and wanting to re-listen to certain parts. Mindy, you’re an international treasure.

Enjoyable from beginning to end.

Funny, interesting, entertaining. I listened to it in three days. I could not wait to listen to it each day. Have ready Mindy’s other books too but this was my favourite. Soooo Mindy, hurry up and write another one please! #NoPressure

love Mindy!!

I was a late comer to the party but now a huge fan! I started watching her series The Mindy Project, it was the first I'd seen of her and I'm hooked so bought the audio book to hear about where it all started.

Witty and endearing

Love the style of honest and open story-telling, just self-deprecating enough to be real and relateable but also cognisant of her extraordinary-ness. Plus, hilarious. Loved it.

Enjoyable! I already miss Mindy's voice. I like her openness and honesty, her confidence and quirkiness. She is a role model for the modern young woman. Nice work, Mindy! ☺🍰

Definitely worth it !

I hadnt watched too many episodes of the office or the mindy project but i thought i'd give it a go - i'm glad i did! It was so easy to listen to and Mindy is funny and relate-able. For anyone who wasnt popular at school and enjoyed studying and hanging out with family and didnt always fit into the mainstream - you will enjoy this book. Even if you did, Mindy is so engaging that you will find her stories hilarious.

very quick and addictive to listen to. The fact it's narrated by Mindy is the only reason makes it awesome!
