Review

Is Miranda Hart a National Treasure yet? If not, it can only be a year or two before she joins Stephen Fry and Alan Bennett in the trophy cabinet of the country's affections... That personality and voice belong to a uniquely cherished comedian, and the answer to that question in her title is actually, yes - it is just her. Because there's nobody like Miranda. (Daily Mail)

Funny and charming and full of terrific comic ideas... Unlike most comedians, she can actually write... Every Christmas there is, at the very most, one celeb book that is genuinely worth buying and reading. Here is this year's. Accept no substitutes. (The Spectator)

'As you'd expect, it's very funny indeed... we applaud this bumbling, childish and splendid attempt to create such a guide, which includes Miranda verbally sparring with her 18-year-old self' ***** (Heat)

'Miranda Hart will carry you along with the sheer force of her charm, bumbling cheer and charisma'. (Sunday Express)

Navigate the awkwardness of adult life with Miranda Hart's Is It Just Me? (Grazia)

This is pure, unadulterated, totally genius, Miranda. A cult (would religion be too weighty a word?) must surely follow, where can we get the T-shirt? (Red Online)

Comedy queen Miranda recalls the awkward experiences she has encountered over the years and gives her unique thoughts and advice on dealing with them... Warning: you will laugh out loud on public transport while reading this! ***** (Closer)

In her brilliantly funny book, TV's Miranda muses on some of the most challenging, baffling and 'hideola' aspects of life... all the anecdotes are told in her unique style, with regular interjections from her 18-year-old self. Such fun! ***** (Star)

'Before reading this, we didn't know the meaning of embarrassing'. (Now)

I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of Miranda Hart's new book - we should all embrace our inner Miranda gene and learn to laugh at ourselves. (Daily Express)

'No one explores the intricacies and agonies of social embarrassment better than Hart'. (Sunday Telegraph)

'It's an autobiography but not as we know it - rather than digging up demons and skeletons past, the light-hearted tone feels like catching up with an old friend over a pot of tea'. (The Big Issue)

The best thing about her book is its universality - it is stuffed with the kind of events with which almost every reader will identify - sometimes with a groan of horrified recognition. (The Lady)

There's probably a bit of Miranda in all of us, and maybe that's why we warm to her. Bear with, bear with, it's hilarious. (Woman)

Funniest book I've read. (Company)

It will certainly raise what I call a smile in her thousands of fans. (Daily Mail)

In a wonderfully gentle way, this is a hugely funny concept. (Evening Standard)

I admit I am a book reader. I also admit I am a fan of Miranda Hart. I noticed that the audiobook was read by her and only £1 more than the hardback, so I thought I'd give it a try. Miranda's voice and phrasing are so special it makes the book even funnier. Try something different if you are not an audiobook listener, it is worth it!

I went into this book not knowing a lot about it - I've not seen a lot of Miranda Hart, I don't watch many of her shows so I wouldn't call myself a fan, but I found this to be a funny and witty read. I enjoyed that this wasn't just about Miranda as a person, but her thoughts and feelings on a range of topics. It's a very easy to read, I found I was able to get into it straight away and it's a nice light-hearted read. Although it's not the genre of book I'd usually read, I was pleased that I picked it up and would definitely recommend to any fans of Miranda Hart.

I love Miranda Hart, and find her very funny, so decided to read her book when it came out, having heard nothing about it previously. I was so glad I picked it up, and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who watches 'Miranda', and even those who are just in need of a lighthearded read.

It isn't a typical autobiography, set out religiously from childhood through to adulthood, but almost her train of thought on various topics ranging from Technology to Beauty, punctuated by 'conversations' with her younger self. Her distinctive voice and sense of humour shines through in the writing, so anyone who loves Miranda will be able to recognise the style instantly, and in places it truly made me laugh out loud.

It is reasonably short and easy to read, nothing dark or gritty (not that you would expect it!) and I defy anyone not to enjoy it!

Well, this book is just such fun! What more does any Dear Reader Chum really need to say, when they have just finished laughing their way through Miranda Hart's witty, funny and oh-so-very-true observations on life and all that goes with it? The premise of the book is that Miranda is sharing with us and with her 18-year old self from 20 years previous, her thoughts on the strangeness of various aspects of life - from music and hobbies, through to culture and dreams, and just about everything in between. This is one of those books you really need to imagine the author's voice talking to you as you go; it really does sound just as though Miranda is just voicing her thoughts as she goes along. And funny they are. Being 6 feet tall myself, I really empathised with her views on the good and not so good aspects of being that height; I think sometimes people only keep me around to get things off the top shelves, and hang the tricky Christmas decorations. Oh dear. Awkward.

A wonderful book, one to pick up and enjoy again and again - highly recommended for anyone who appreciates Miranda's humour, and who appreciates humour which takes the mickey out of all of us.

If you're a "bloke" you won't get it or her, but Miranda Hart is what most 35+ intelligent women have been waiting for in years. Not since Smack the Pony have I found a female writer/comedian(enne?) as funny and able to laugh at herself AS herself! Imagine being able to talk to your 18-year-old self and comment on your actions as an adult - that's exactly what this does. A lovely little reflective and retrospective narrative written as a lesson to 18-year-old Miranda but without any self-criticism. A brilliant boost to the ego if you're feeling a little deflated...Miranda proves that if you stick with your dreams they will come true. I wouldn't really call this an autobiography as it doesn't really reveal that much about Miranda Hart that most fans don't already know or could have guessed at. It's a (cliche alert..) wry look at life and (second/third cliche alert...) breath of fresh air and welcome change from the usual selection of, what I call 'ghost-written autobiographical crap' usually available at this time of year. Miranda CAN and DOES actually write her own material, and jolly good it is too!
