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.

Great book

I am not a huge follower of Anna Kendrick, not that I don't like her I just don't watch everything she had created. However this was a great book, I loved it! She is very personable and it feels as though she is just "one of us." It is a great listen

Great first audiobook!!

I was very hesitant to start listening to audiobooks. I am a fast reader and able to imagine the scenes set forth in a book pretty quickly and easily, and I was afraid that listening to a book wouldn't capture that same kind of imagination. This is why I chose a free trial from Audible, and a celebrity autobiography actually read by that celebrity - it was the exact right choice. Anna Kendrick wrote a witty, attention-grabbing, easy-to-listen-to book and I had absolutely no problems putting myself in her world for 6 hours. The chapters follow each other seamlessly and Anna has a great voice for audiobooks - she enunciates, she's emotional where it counts, and she's very very real. I highly recommend this audiobook. #Audible1

Entertaining and funny read...

This was a very entertaining listen. I really enjoyed it and found myself laughing out loud quite a few times. Anna's dry, witty and sarcastic sense of humour is enchanting and I found her to be equally sweet and sassy...or maybe salty. Yup. Salty.

LOVE - MUST LISTEN

Anna did a FABULOUS job reading this book. She displayed emotions throughout it all which really added a special touch. I really loved to listen to it and am quite sad that it's over... Hopefully she will write another one some day ! Would 100% recommend. Would love to read another book with her as the narrator too !

I love her so much!

Was everything I had hoped it would be and more. Anna is funny and smart and overly adorable. I especially love her theory about Zac Efron being Immortal.

Finished in a day

I had a 3 day journey from Buffalo, NY to Thailand, with two very long flights and two very long layovers. This definitely made the time go by quickly. Anna's personality really shines through from about half way onward, which I really enjoyed. She lets loose and gets into the stories!

Une autobiographie fraîche, légère et pétillante comme son auteur !

Anna Kendrick raconte avec malices des anecdotes personnelles sur ses débuts d'enfant-acteur, son rôle dans la série Twilight, sa nomination aux Oscars... Sa petite voix aiguë et ses intonations dynamiques animent ce livre pour notre plus grand plaisir auditif.

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!

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.
