    Description

    Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

    Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!

    In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.

    Pas interessant

    Après avoir écouté les livres de Nick Hofferman et Aziz Ansari, également lus par leurs auteurs respectifs, j'ai voulu essayer celui ci. J'aime bien Mindy Kaling en temps qu'actrice et je ne doute pas de ses talents d’écriture (co-auteur de The Office entre autres), mais quand il s'agit de parler d'elle même, elle n'a pas grand chose d’intéressant a raconter. Bref, on s’ennuie et sa lecture, bien qu'amusante, ne suffit pas a rattraper le coup. Je ne l'ai même pas terminé, ce qui est rare.

    If you like Mindy, you'll enjoy this listen.

    I gave 5 stars for performance and 3 for story. Mindy is very funny, and I like her style, so I liked the book. Like Tina Fey in Bossypants, Mindy writes about things that all women can relate to, and that most women agree with on some level. She does an excellent job of reading (some authors don't do as well as you would want), maybe since she's also an actress. She definitely gave excitement to the reading. Her voice is a little high-pitched, but again, I like Mindy so I enjoyed listening. The male readers were AWESOME and believable.

    I gave 3 for story because she is quite superficial and materialistic, so you'll find those themes running through the entire thing. It's funny, especially if you're being light-hearted about it, but it's not the kind of story that keeps you thinking and expands you as a person. The story itself is pretty forgettable, but it was very fun and enjoyable while it lasted. I'm assuming that was her goal.

    Not my thing.

    It basically seemed the she was whining about having a perfectly fine life. Didn't finish.

    Love it!

    Any additional comments?

    As a HUGE fan of The Office, I was super excited to read this book. I already had the eBook when I saw that Mindy Kaling had actually narrated the audiobook version herself. (so cool! Lol) Anyway, it was exactly what I had expected it to be. Super funny and honest-feeling. It was also smart with some awesome references!

    Funny and well read

    Glad that Mindy narrated this herself. She addresses being compared to Tina Fey in the book but this book was right up there with Tina Fey's and Amy Pohler's books. I was apprehensive since the Lena Dunham book turned out to be terrible and I didn't finish this. Lots of fun snippets and great for commutes to and from work.

    Gets annoying after a while....

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

    This book may have been funny as a written book, but as an audio book, the whole experience just gets annoying after a while... there are some funny bits in there, but the content gets a bit repetitive and doesn't really engage. After a few chapters, it just feels like I am listening to a random rant.

    Not relatable

    I was disappointed. I really didn't find it interesting or funny. I was hoping for charming, but it fell short. I think it's mostly because she and I have nothing in common. I will stick with Terry Pratchett.

    She may be funny to some, but I'm not into her humor. loved the office, just not her.

    Meh

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    People who are extremely bored and have nothing else better to do.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Mindy Kaling again?

    Yes, I love the author, I just don't think this was interesting.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It didn't at all.

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    There were a few funny stories in it.

    Any additional comments?

    I stopped listening. I got bored.

    No point

    This book is all over the place and I'm left wondering what the point of it was supposed to be.

    Cute & Entertaining

    I was hoping for something light and funny to give myself a break from the heavy stuff I've been lost in recently - this clever half-bio / half-monologue did the job nicely. I will say that it was a bit more bubblegum than I normally prefer, but I realize that I'm probably 15 years older than the high-end of her intended demographic, so I tried to keep that in mind when I found myself rolling my eyes too much. The narration was fine but I suggest listening to the sample first - her voice is child-like. For comedy writing, it's not bad - it has profanity, sarcasm, & amusing anecdotes - I would recommend it to young women in their late teens/early twenties without hesitation.

    Leider sehr flach und insgesamt unnötig

    Man freut sich, etwas von Mindy Kalinga zu hören, aber neben Amy Schumers "The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo" verblasst dieses Werk leider total. Investiert 4 Std. eures Lebens anders.

    Oh man, what a bore

    Sorry Mindy. Although I love listening to autobiographies, this one was tough to finish. I guess it could have been written better, but on top if that, Mindy seems like an adult kid with no discipline. The only chapter I did enjoy was the one about marriage. All in all, I'm glad I'm finally done with this book and excited to move on to something less tedious.

    Simply amazing

    Mindy is Mindy there is no need for further explanation. So amazon needs min 15 words for a review.
