Product Description

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.

Format: Hardcover
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?

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.

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!

How this book came to be a bestseller is beyond me. Let me explain.

Mindy's biography or rather a collection of essays is bearable and sometimes funny at best, and an endless rant about completely unrelated things - often without a point, at worst. For someone who doesn't normally read books and doesn't expect much in terms of getting a different but valuable new outlook on life, this might be an easy and enjoyable read. For a 12-year old, this book might be a fabulous choice also.
I feel it needs to be said that I adore Mindy, love her show, find her extremely inspirational. Initially, it comes as a shocker that I fell asleep twice while reading this. However, it makes sense. Whilst in a TV show we might look for a break from our hard lives and pressing problems just to indulge in a light (as opposed to deep) story where the characters dress impeccably, say lots of jokes, go through awkward scenes and show us that we're all just humans and it's okay not to be perfect; in a book I personally expect to learn something, get inspired, and see a well thought out analysis or reflection of the experiences, events and thoughts the author has encountered in his or her life, rather than mere descriptions of stories.

For example when Mindy says she hates riding the bike because they scratch against her legs or whatever in I Am Not an Athlete, Part I:Bikes - I couldn't help but think, and this is relevant how? It's a cute little rant, sure, inevitably showing us that the big success that is Mindy is just as normal and human as anyone else, but there was no need for a whole book to be written in this style.

Format: Paperback
Structure: This is a humorous memoir constructed into a collection of essays, stories from her life, advice and opinions. This sort of structure would make it an ideal commute read and because there were some sections I was more interested in than others so while I was reading I tended to skip around. The structure reminded me of both Bossypants by Tina Fey and Is it Just Me? by Miranda Hart, (both humorous memoirs that I would recommend).

Why I picked this book up: I’ve been really interested in reading this book since I started to pay more attention since I started to notice that Mindy Kaling wrote most of my absolute favourite episodes of The Office. I’ve also started to read along with the youtube based Answerly Book club, and this book is the comedy pick this month.

What I liked: There are some great chapters about Mindy being a quiet kid, a comedy nerd, who got on with her work which I really connected with as that describes my childhood pretty well (although I was nerdy all around). There’s some great advice telling teens that its okay to not be too cool in High School that I really agreed with.

There’s also some fun behind the scenes Hollywood stuff, really demystifies the whole ‘fame’ thing. (There is a description of the rubbish things she has received in the goody bags at award shows).

Basically the only autobiographies I read are written by Comedians and Writers, I especially love ones written by both. Partly because I’m really interested in comedy writing and working in a writing room in general so the behind the scenes on The Office/SNL was really great, (I would have loved more).
