Review

"[Mindy Kaling is] like Tina Fey’s cool little sister. Or perhaps… the next Nora Ephron." (The New York Times)

"Kaling doles out neurotic charm and hilarious everywoman musings." (Elle)

"Kaling’s debut is the perfect combination of memoir and hilarious, goofy lists that you’d expect from The Office star and writer-executive producer." (Allure.com)

"Reading her words is like listening to a likably gabby friend chatter happily over generously poured glasses of red wine." (Washington Post)

Book Description

Mindy Kaling's New York Times bestselling comic memoir – on family, weight struggles, bullying, friendships, men and starring in E4's The Mindy Project – will appeal to her growing UK fan base.

Mindy Kaling isn’t someone that I knew a lot about yet I loved the office and this book gives you a great understanding about how she has got to where she was today.

To me the book felt like a scrapbook, written in a conversational style the book is very easy to read and contains many photos. You can’t help reading this book in Kaling’s voice it just feels like she’s talking to you.

The book is funny is some parts yet I have to admit that I felt as though I was far to old to be reading this book. Kaling herself makes the comment that this book has probably been purchased for a teenager by their ‘cool aunt’.

Some of the chapters feel a little cliché such as the one that touches of the subject of her weight, which seems to be a typical topic that female comedians discuss therefore the subject feels sort of tedious. This book is aimed at the young adult/preteen market.

Just finished reading this - it was the first book to necessitate downloading the Kindle app for my iPhone and buying the ebook version because for some reason the UK shipping for the hard copy was 1-3 months, but worked out well as the audio extras are a fun touch. The essays cover a wide range of Mindy Kaling's thoughts, observations, and insights and is written in a conversational way that makes you feel like you are chatting to a friend. A really funny, interesting, smart friend. Too many highlights to mention, although I will say that the chapter "Guys Need to Do Almost Nothing to Be Great" should be gospel. I guess as Bossypants only came out earlier this year the Tina Fey comparisons will be inevitable. There are a few similarities, the most important being that both books make you laugh and feel happy. Who wouldn't want to have more books like that?

Format: Paperback
I'll come right out and say that I don't normally write reviews and I actually didn't like Mindy Kaling or her show. But I started watching the show and saw what the deal was about and when I found out she had written a book, I bought it (on Kindle as it was cheaper and I no longer have space on my bookshelf). The book is great! Really funny, actually I'll say hilarious as I often had to stop myself from laughing out loud on the tube. You definitely recognise Mindy's voice if you're familiar with her show. It's an honest and open book and she isn't afraid of tackling any type of bullying she encountered in her childhood or the problems she encountered trying to be a success. The book mainly deals about her life up to The Office and before The Mindy Projet and I was surprised to find out that she's also a director so she's definitely a quadruple threat (actor / writer / director / producer) and my admiration for her has solidified. I hope she remains the same person despite whatever success she will undoubtedly create in the future and write another book about it!

By Marie on 13 Dec. 2013
Format: Paperback
This was recommended to me at a time when I was really busy and stressed. I really enjoy watching The Office, but I haven't seen Kaling starring in The Mindy Project and wouldn't call myself a 'fan' as such. I suspected this would be a quick, light and fluffy read that wouldn't require too much concentration, and I was exactly right - it turned out to be just what I was in the mood for.

This is a less conventional biography than others I've read, in that it's a bit of a mixed bag of tricks. There are the expected chapters about Kaling's childhood and her rise to success in the male-dominated comedy industry, of course. But additionally the reader is treated to lots of shorter passages and mini-essays about...well, anything that pops into Mindy's head, really. Some of these are really funny. I particularly enjoyed her observations on chick-flicks and romantic comedies. Unfortunately, elsewhere I found these interludes to be somewhat distracting. I was left unsure whether or not there was supposed to be a narrative flow from start to finish, or if it was all just meant to be a bit random.

All things considered, this is good fun - the bookish equivalent of going to a girlie sleepover and having a gossip with your best friends. If you're a fan of The Office you'll almost certainly appreciate her brand of humour.

Being only vaguely aware of the American version of The Office, I only knew of Mindy Kaling in passing. I was initially apprehensive to purchase this, worried that it wouldn't live up to Tina Fey's hilarious Bossypants, but I'm so glad I did. Mindy enthusiastically recounts her childhood and rise to TV writing fame and her personality oozes off of the page. Looking forward to the next one.

So funny! I've been the crazy lady laughing alone on the tube! I'll be passing this on to people I really like when I'm done.

A laugh out loud feel good book which makes me feel at ease, knowing that there are other slightly odd people out there which share the same weird thoughts as me.

Mindy has a lovely conversational way about her writing. You feel like you're sitting down for a chat with a good friend about how her life has been going over the last few years since you last saw each other. Even if you're not a fan of Kaling, she incorporates the stories of her life into tips for working in the business, her views on how the business works and she is funny enough that you can approach this as a humour book and enjoy it on the basis of that.
Nothing is too in your face, but the guidelines are there from talking about writing her first critically acclaimed show with her flatmate Brenda, to 'how to behave with Greg Daniels' all the way to being a guest writer on SNL and failing miserably. And there's a lovely anecdote about how nice Amy Poehler is, and any book containing an anecdote is thus considered worthy. Ha.
It doesn't quite have the edge on humour that Tina Fey's Bossypants has, but it's warm, friendly and a light-hearted amusing read.
