Description

A collection of humorous autobiographical essays by the Academy Award-nominated actress and star of Up in the Air and Pitch Perfect.

"I'm excited to publish my first book, and because I get uncomfortable when people have high expectations, I'd like to use this opportunity to showcase my ineptitude and pettiness and the frequency with which I embarrass myself. And while many of my female inspirations who have become authors are incredibly well educated and accomplished comedy writers, I'm very, very funny on Twitter, according to BuzzFeed and my mom, so I feel like this is a great idea. Quick question: Are run-on sentences still frowned upon? Wait, is ending a sentence with a preposition still frowned upon? I mean, upon frowned? Dammit!" (Anna Kendrick)

Anna Kendrick's autobiographical collection of essays amusingly recounts memorable moments throughout her life, from her middle-class upbringing in New England to the blockbuster movies that have made her one of Hollywood's most popular actresses today. Expanding upon the witty and ironic dispatches for which she is known, Anna Kendrick's essays offer her one-of-a-kind commentary on the absurdities she's experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Critiques

"Actress Anna Kendrick narrates her wry and witty collection of autobiographical essays about growing up in Portland, Maine.... Her quick pace, sometimes sarcastic tone, and unmistakably familiar voice enhance funny and shrewd reflections on her ordinary girl's life." ( AudioFile)

Une autobiographie fraîche, légère et pétillante comme son auteur !

Anna Kendrick: Scrappy Little... Revelation

Story: Like so many others that have left reviews, I too have thoroughly enjoyed this book. I've only listened to a few other books in this genre (Rob Lowe, Judy Greer, Tina Fey) so I can't compare it to much, but I would consider this a somewhat typical Hollywood memoir. Trying to figure out direction in life, reaching the ah-ha moment, and then experiencing the highs and lows of the journey. I found myself able to relate to some stories and others not, but even if you can or can't, I'm confident that you'll be laughing along the entire way. One thing that makes it interesting is that Miss Kendrick is still a young actress. She has experienced a lot already and we don't even know where she will go from here (how many more books will we get!?).

Performance: The narration was done wonderfully! The audiobook flowed and felt like a conversation with a friend... you know, when a friend tells a really, really long story :) For real, though, this was hilarious and genuine.

Overall: I couldn't find myself giving the overall rating anything other than five stars. This book is light, easy to follow and humorous. I nearly finished it during one drive and didn't tire or need a break at all because it all flowed so well and I was pulled into the performance from the start. Highly recommend this audiobook! To wrap this up, the best way I can describe this audiobook is... absolutely effortless!

Great Autobiography

I have never been able to finish a celebrity autobiography before. Midway through this book I realized that this was something that I would listen to several times over. Anna is brilliant and can effortlessly put herself in the mind of reader in a way that makes it seem like a real conversation. I enjoy that she gets right to the point and doesn't add any fluff to lengthen the story. This book never came off as self absorbed or fake, which is refreshing. All together it is worth a credit.

A much-needed laugh

When I saw that Anna had a book coming out I quickly checked to see if it was going to be Audible and I was relieved. I love listening to memoirs read by the author. Especially if the author is an actor or a comedian. There is something there in the audiobook that you can't get from reading it.

Scrappy Little Nobody was no different. Anna's narration really made this book in my opinion. I'm sure that reading it on your own you could have enjoyed it just as much -- but hearing her actual reactions to things she wrote on top of hearing her tell you stories that were funny and sometimes embarrassing really put this book over the top.

I started this book on a day where I wasn't having a good morning (are there such a thing as a good morning?) And within the first few minutes of my drive I was already laughing and smiling like an idiot during my commute. The rest of the book kept me smiling and laughing.

Anna's story was really well thought out and I'm glad (and a little amazed) that she was able to get as much intimacy onto the page and into the audiobook.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who needs a good laugh, especially if you like a slightly cynical and real celebrity.

Humorous and Nicely Performed

Anna Kendrick's performance of her own composition is humorous and compelling. Her delivery exhibits dead pan and dry humor. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a light and honest read.

not much substance here

i love the work a.k. does, but in her real life she is (apparently) very normal, mildly funny, and tremendously afraid of offending anyone. she spends as much time apologizing for her stories as telling them. i do really appreciate how honest the book feels, but its very disjointed. i always love when the author reads their own work... you get a better feeling of how she intends certain events to come across.

When does this get interesting!

I really tried to give this book a chance to be interesting. I listened to 6 of the 9 hours of this audio book. I like her as an actress. So I thought this would be entertaining. But after awhile the me, me, me and I, I, I became too tedious to listen to. After 6 hours of listening and finding nothing really interesting, I had to stop! Life is too short to listen to meaningless dribble. Sorry, but I give it a thumbs down.

A good performance but.....

The author reads her book very well and her inflections make the book even better but the story didn't go too in depth into her actual acting roles (and her witty take when she does talk about them makes you want her to talk about them more than she ultimately does).

Starts flat, gets better

Funny but not as funny as billed.
Interesting and poignant at times.
Her reading is good, but not great.
She skips some parts of her career that might have made the book more interesting.

I need more

I love Anna Kendrick's humour and her weirdo vibes, but it ended too quickly! Honestly, very refreshing and amusing, one of the few autobiographies I'll listen to a second and maybe even a third time just because it's funny.

How can someone not love her???

I mean I loved Anna Kendrick before I listened to her reading her book. But afterwards how can someone not love her? She is honest about herself! I love that and wish more people were like her. Celebrity or not. I can listen to that book over and over. And still find it amusing and entertaining and also a little bit comforting. So go and buy that book. You won't regret it!

Extrem unterhaltsam und interessant!

Halten Sie die Hörbuch-Ausgabe von Scrappy Little Nobody für besser als das Buch?

Ich habe sowohl das Buch als auch das Hörbuch von Scrappy Little Nobody. Das Hörbuch hat sich auf jeden Fall gelohnt. Das Buch an sich ist schon sehr lustig, aber mit Anna's Betonungen wird es noch besser.

Welcher Moment von Scrappy Little Nobody ist Ihnen besonders im Gedächtnis geblieben?

Sehr viele kleine Momente.
"Burn in hell Tory. I KNOW IT WAS YOU"... vielleicht ganz besonders.

Wenn Sie dieses Hörbuch verfilmen könnten wie würde der Slogan dazu lauten?

Everything you already suspected or did not suspect at all about Anna has now been made official in a hilarious way!
oder als Zitat aus dem Buch:
"Here's the thing about crazy: It. Wants. Out."

Insgesamt eher langweilig

Intelligente Witze, gut gelesen, aber insgesamt keine besonders spannende oder bereichernde Autobiographie. Es gibt bessere.

Really don't know why anyone finds this funny

Was hat Sie am meisten an Anna Kendricks Geschichte enttäuscht?

nicht im Geringsten lustig

Wen hätten Sie anstatt Anna Kendrick als Erzähler vorgeschlagen?

pretty much everybody?!

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

couldn't stand listening to the book for more than an hour
