A quick warning about an otherwise good book: It's a shame, because the first two-thirds of Kaling's effort is an A quick warning about an otherwise good book: It's a shame, because the first two-thirds of Kaling's effort is an engaging memoir chronicling a thoroughly conventional upbringing and an unlikely rise to notoriety and television scripting fame.
Her circuitous route to her career is both affable and a fun read—which makes it all the more disappointing that once she reaches the heights at NBC, the rest of the book sputters out when it has nowhere to go.
It seems unfairly reductive that the memoir will inevitably undergo comparisons with her same-network compatriot Tiny Fey's Bossypants. I found Kaling's effort the more charming of the two, and the less labored. Jan 03, Shayantani Das rated it it was ok. TV and I are not best friends. Hindi sitcoms are royally crappy and wildly unrealistic, news channels seem mostly concerned with celebrity gossip, even channels like Discovery and National Geography have been commercialized.
So basically, I and TV have had minimal interaction in the past years. Point is, as a result of the aforementioned facts, almost all the numerous countless culture reference sounded like Blah Blah Blah to my ears.
Mindy would go "remember that scene " And I would go No offence, I am glad people finally understood the futility of presenting accessories, still, from next time; I am giving all the members of my huge extended family a list of all the books they can download for me even if it makes me seem pathetic and gift hungry. So for people who are normal, especially those from the 90's or who watch the office, check out this book.
There are parts like when she describes her view on one night stand or muses about cat manicure shop after she becomes a trophy wife that were especially hilarious! Don't expect Mindy to be Rofl level funny though. There are max 3 to 4 Lol moments in this rather lengthy book.
If you are familiar with David Sedaris's work, you would especially disappointed. View all 9 comments. Jan 11, Nicole rated it it was amazing Shelves: Ok, I officially have a girl crush on Mindy Kaling. She is just so cool. I love the fact that she is completely honest about all her failings and even embraces them. This would definitely be the type of person I would want to be friends with. This book was extremely funny and a light, easy read. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a good laugh.
By far m Ok, I officially have a girl crush on Mindy Kaling. By far my absolute favorite part of this book, however, was when she talks about one night stands and how she can never have them, not because they are sleazy, but because she is afraid of getting murdered.
This so reminds me of myself. When my boyfriend, Keith, and I were dating for about 5 or 6 months, we decided to go on a trip to Oklahoma together for the weekend to see a Linkin Park concert, definitely not because we thought Oklahoma was cool As we are leaving town, I'm thinking to myself: He finds girls, dates them for 5 or 6 months, plans a trip out of state with them to "see a concert" and murders them? What if he murders me? I don't want to be buried in Oklahoma!!! So, I kind of freaked out a little bit and immediately texted everyone in my phone to tell them where I was going and that if they didn't hear back from me by Sunday it was because Keith had murdered me and left my body in Oklahoma.
I know it seems kind of paranoid, but you know, one day, I'm going to get murdered and dumped in Oklahoma and all my friends and family will not only know who did it, but where my body is. I'm just saying, Mindy Kaling is a smart girl.
Jan 09, Fabian rated it really liked it. This one by far is my favorite. It is contemporary and as refreshing as it is informative--and very, very amusing. I only disagree with her overboard girlie stuff conventional marriage, disapproval of comedy roasts, crying over fashion --but this is refreshing, too.
Jul 25, Whitney Atkinson rated it liked it Shelves: This book was just fine! I'm not a huge fan of Mindy-- meaning, I do like her in what I've seen her in, but I'm not die-hard for anything she's done--but I decided to read this nonetheless because I'm all about supporting successful women.
I This book was just fine! It feels like i'm listening to a long interview with Mindy. There were a few parts that she made some jokes I don't agree with, but for the most part, the book was nice because it was short and entertaining. It didn't really leave a lasting impression on me, it didn't really go a whole lot into Mindy's personal life, but it did offer me some insights into her life which I think were valuable enough to afford this 3 stars, even though it didn't particularly sweep me off my feet.

Of all the books I've read in the past few months, this is the book that has me wondering several things. A How did it get so much pre- and post-release publicity and b why do so many people like it? Or any number of funny-memoir type books I've read.
Which is weird, because I usually finish a book like this no mat Of all the books I've read in the past few months, this is the book that has me wondering several things.
Which is weird, because I usually finish a book like this no matter what, but this one I returned to the library with a third left unread. It just didn't 'take'.
Here's my thoughts on why I didn't care for it and I guess I'm a lone wolf, here! Mindy Kaling tried to come across like a good friend, and listed one of the reasons to read the book as: I know Chelsea isn't for everyone, but it's not easy to be funny like she is, and don't assume you can do it. Don't be so presumptuous! I felt Mindy was trying to imply some kind of intimacy with the reader that she hadn't earned. Like she was saying: I didn't relate to her life, the camp story tedious, went nowhere ,her high school 'crew', who identified themselves by a word made up of of each person's initials boring- they did nothing interesting or funny!
Because one friend liked horses she comments- I hope she found a nice horse to run off with better than hanging with you, it seems and making fun of people's looks and dress "I may not have been that pretty, but at least I wasn't five inches taller than the guys' You have to have a certain voice to pull off that kind of talk and not come across as nasty.
Mindy K. Let me just say: I don't get it. I don't know why this book is so well-reviewed- it's just not my cup of tea.
Even though the genre is one of my favorites. And ps: I went in wanting to like it. I felt about the book the way I feel about her character on 'The Office'-I get annoyed and can't wait for her part to be over. There are basically two ways to get where I am: Is it a very gritty, detailed memoir??? It is fluffy, light and filled with lots of witty observations about life in general.
Each chapter is almost like an essay on different topics. There are lots of funny anecdotes about growing up, starting out as a comedy writer, her time at the US Office and at SNL… It is just a lovely way to pass a few hours.
Even though we mercilessly made fun of the video, which was from the deep eighties and included Tamilee Webb wearing aqua bike shorts and a pink thong leotard, we did it religiously. Tamilee had a rock-hard butt, and there was nothing ironic about it.
The whole experience was surprisingly fun and cemented a friendship between Brenda and me for life. How can you not make a best friend out of a girl who has seen the sweat-soaked pelvis area of your gym pants, daily, and who still chooses to spend time with you?
In psychology okay, Twilight they teach you about the notion of imprinting, and I think it applies here. I reverse-imprinted with athleticism. Ours is the great non-love story of my life. They help each other study for the SATs and different AP courses, and then, after months of studying, and mountains of flashcards, they kiss chastely upon hearing the news that they both got into their top college choices.
This is a song teens need to inadvertently memorize. View all 17 comments. Apr 19, Melki rated it really liked it Shelves: So, she was born the same month and year I graduated from high school, which technically makes her young enough to be my daughter I haven't a clue why I decided to read this book.
Kaling's character on The Office drove me nuts, and though I enjoyed the few episodes of The Mindy Project that I saw, I am in no way a regular viewer.
Probably the fact that I found it at the Goodwill Store for a buck had something to do with it. But then again There's a little p So, she was born the same month and year I graduated from high school, which technically makes her young enough to be my daughter There's a little part of me that stands up and applauds whenever I see someone on TV that doesn't look like everyone else I just want to grab that person, and hug them, and invite them home for grilled cheese sandwiches and a huge slab of chocolate cake.
I want to congratulate them on making it big in an industry that values looks above all else. Mindy is one of these people. It is simply an enjoyable tale of what it's like to grow up as a nerdy girl who likes hanging out with her parents and all things comedic.
It's about a girl just like me. So, Mins We can talk about our favorite Kid in the Hall. Mine changes every week, but it's never Kevin. Then we'll go back to your place and sing along to Graceland. You can cry all you want, girlfriend. I got lots of tissues. Nov 02, unknown rated it liked it Shelves: This book is best read on a day when you need some light, distracting entertainment, say like when you were up half the night because your infant daughter has a chest cold and then you were rushing around the house trying to find your keys because you were late for your appointment at the mechanic and then you realized they were actually locked inside the garage, which you can only open with that one key that is now inside the green car, which was a stupid place to leave it.

It can be read in about the same amount of time it takes to get an oil change, which is about right, provided that during the oil change it takes two hours to install your stupid expensive headlight bulbs and then once they are finished, it turned out your battery is dead and you need a new one, but you need to get to work but they have to look up how to jumpstart a Prius.

She shamelessly shares her BlackBerry pics with us, tells us about her life before and during The Office is Rainn Wilson really her frenemy? Like my friend Meli said, this book was all over the place, which I absolutely think separates it from other books, because you can tell she wrote it all on her own, and stayed true to herself. There's just one thing that doesn't sit well with me: Not cool. If you wanna take a look at the excerpt, you can check this out. Not Mindy, though.
She made me feel like we were new best friends and it was her turn to tell me everything about her life before me. Which I'm sure is the way she wanted me okay, us to read it.

Mar 01, Katie rated it liked it. Listened to this on my 10hr drive today, and it was exactly what I needed! It kept me in a great mood on an otherwise very bleak, rainy drive. Fun and enjoyable audiobook read by Mindy herself. Light entertainment to keep me company on my commute to and from work. Nov 08, Lucy rated it liked it Shelves: To quote the author: Did you even see the cover? It's a cute book and I recommend it to anyone whose pushing through to a book goal count for the year.
It's not really a biography -- just little snapshots of an interesting life and the fortunate chances she's been given. Kaling is proud of all the work she put int To quote the author: Kaling is proud of all the work she put into her career, but also aware of all the breaks she got which help keep her ego under wraps. The stories are entertaining and Kaling is extremely open about previous and current struggles with her weight without ever being 'poor me' for more than a few sentences at a time.
Don't expect too much background information on The Office despite it being the longest chapter in the book. Overall a shallow read in maybe the most charming way possible.
Jun 29, Rebecca McNutt rated it really liked it Shelves: A comedic but ultimately deep and poignant memoir, Is Everyone Hanging out Without Me is an unforgettable story of finding your talent in spite of childhood embarrassments. For those of you who didn't find this book funny, I'm going to go ahead and assume that you probably didn't get the humour. In which case, why are you even reading a Mindy Kaling memoir? It stands to reason that if you don't find this book funny, then you mostly likely don't find The Office or The Mindy Project funny either.
It's full of incredibly oblivious, narcissistic, annoying characters. They are hilarious. Mindy has many narcissistic, annoying moments, whi For those of you who didn't find this book funny, I'm going to go ahead and assume that you probably didn't get the humour.
Mindy has many narcissistic, annoying moments, which she acknowledges immediately as such, and then proceeds to make fun of herself. Moving on. This is a really sweet, light-hearted and very funny account of Mindy Kaling's childhood, adolescence, and early career. She is incredibly authentic and relatable; she doesn't take herself too seriously, and overall has a wonderfully refreshing voice and personality!
If you're a fan of Mindy Kaling's work, you will definitely enjoy this book. Dec 18, Donna Ho Shing rated it it was ok. I was suffering through this book, and swore it wouldn't get more than one star when a remarkable thing happened in the last 70 or so pages, Mindy Kaling stopped boring me to death about her struggles as a t.
That is the Mindy Kaling I'm a fan of and that's how I'd expected the entire book to be. So the whole book is divided into seven parts: Jan 26, Thomas rated it liked it Shelves: A light, humorous, and overall forgettable memoir about Mindy Kaling's upbringing and her success as an actress and television writer. The content ranges from her childhood as a self-proclaimed chubby kid to her feelings about romantic comedies.
Kaling injects humor into even ordinary anecdotes, and I even laughed aloud a couple of times e. Overall, recommended to fans of Kaling and to those A light, humorous, and overall forgettable memoir about Mindy Kaling's upbringing and her success as an actress and television writer.
Overall, recommended to fans of Kaling and to those who feel curious about her life. Having never watched The Office or much TV at all I also received a decent amount of background about the show and its other stars. I do think that Kaling could have delved deeper into certain issues and could have conducted a more rigorous self-analysis, though perhaps we will read that in her next release, Why Not Me?
Apr 02, Ammar rated it liked it Shelves: I had greater expectations for this memoir or essays. It had a promising beginning, but I didn't learn anything from reading this book, it's funny in some parts but overall it was okay. I laughed out loud so many times! As a person who has seen every episode of the office more than once okay, fine, more than 5 times I already think Mindy Kaling, writer and actor who plays character Kelly Kapoor, is really funny.
I wrote my review earlier today and then I thought, "I wonder what other people thought about Mindy's adorable book" and checked out some other goodreads reviews this afternoon.
Sure enough, the first review below 3 stars is some yahoo who says that he doesn't like The Office and had no idea who Mindy Kaling was, and therefore he didn't appreciate the references in the book and some of her anecdotes didn't make sense.
Anyway - on to my actual book review: I don't have a twitter account, so I don't know her hilarious, character as in keyboard characters -limiting quips that she is well-known for, but I do read her blog and I think she is cute and funny. It is also kind of like hanging out with a friend - like, "hey, what kind of eye shadow are you wearing?
Reading her book was like getting to know someone at a slumber party partially because I read it at night before I went to sleep. Mindy Kaling has turned into the celebrity that not only you feel like you know, but it doesn't seem like stretch that you could meet her and have a normal conversation with her without feeling like you are talking to a celebrity which is a good thing!
The stories from her childhood are pretty funny, in a looking-back-that-guy-was-an-asshole-hahaha kind of way, and if she is holding a big ole grudge, you can't tell. Her opinions are earnest and it sounds like she's thought them all out for a pretty long time, probably thinking in blog-mode while killing time and calories on a treadmill.
