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.

Light Read

It was okay. A very light read. I finished the book, but didn't feel like I needed to finish the book. I didn't connect with any of the topics

Mindy is my BFF in my head & she didn't disappoint

Mindy is my best friend in my head. I've always felt that way. But like a true best friend, I didn't want to gas her up and read her first book as soon as it came out...no no, I waited 7 years so she'd know that it isn't always about her. I knew she wouldn't disappoint. Mindy has this way of making you feel like you're not alone. The experiences she has lived through or the insecurities she describes while also getting easily distracted by food feel like she's talking to my soul. Like me, Mindy is neurotic, dramatic, always hungry and balances being totally insecure with suddenly not caring what others think. I will not wait 7 years to read her 2nd book...but don't tell her that!

Shocking

I have always been a big fan of Mindy Kaling, but I don’t feel there’s any room for racism period. Her comment about Indian women having a civilized advantage to African people because Indians have refrigeration and don’t need to divide up UN food rations, is disgusting and disturbing. Africa as a whole is continuously the recipient of ignorance and racism masqueraded as comedy. The “civilization” mindy is referring to is a western ideal that is rooted in yt supremacy. Living and operating at a standard that is different than western society does not make one uncivilized. Africa is home to 54 countries all with rich, diverse, and beautiful history and traditions.

If the western ideal of riches, “education”, and standard of life is the control, then Africa surpasses North America and Europe by leaps and bounds. If it wasn’t for African scholars and dignitaries, Europe would never have learned to bathe, they would never have been introduced to astronomy, architecture, and civility. The Western world OWES Africa, instead they patronize and look down on Its people.

Considering the fact that India was not only colonized and brutalized by the British Empire, but parts of Africa were too, and yet Mindy somehow thinks her countries society is superior to Africa’s? Why is that Mindy?

Light hearted and hilarious, Kaling does it again

Kaling is as hilarious and quick witted as ever in this audio book. It is such an easy listen and feels like you’re catching up with an old friend. 10/10 recommend.

Nice story but super random

I enjoyed listening to Mindy but she was all over the map and there was no real storyline it was just a book of random opinions

Boff

I really thought that I was going to enjoy this book more. Globally it was okay. The fact is that I love Mindy, but I don't know why I just fell like something was off. Maybe it was me and I couldn't connect with the book, but I just felt like for Mindy the book was not that funny. Her performance was still good, but not as funny as I would have thought, you know.

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.

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

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Self-absorbed ramble.

I am a 30yo educated woman who really wanted to find this book interesting and funny. I think I am the target audience for this book... I was more shocked at the possibility that this self-absorbed ramble was published. it has a sequel?

No point

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