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 more about what Mindy thinks 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 awaare 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.
Mindy is so funny!
I enjoyed listening to this on Audio because not only does Mindy narrate it, the book is full of interesting facts about her life. I really can't review this other than saying that it was enjoyable.
There were funny bits throughout the book and with Mindy narrating it, it's even that much funnier!
If you watch The Office and like the character that Mindy plays (a chapter about The Office), than you would probably enjoy this book.
I have never seen The Office and I still enjoyed this.
I would definitely recommend this book.
I gave it ♥♥♥♥ out of ♥♥♥♥♥ on Goodreads.
