I read it a couple of weeks ago when I was ill. It took me a few hours, less than a day. It’s been a long time since I last read something that fast (of course I was stuck at home with nothing to do). I really loved it. I had to start watching the US version of The Office afterwards to stop me getting withdrawal (I had avoided it so far because usually US remakes are a bit rubbish, and I only occasionally liked the original version of The Office), which I’m now on the seventh series of (so yeah, I am liking it actually).
I love how Mindy blossomed I suppose. She was a pretty shy kid, you could still see a bit of that Mindy quality, a sort of no cares attitude, although it had it’s quivers. She really was a self-made woman. It sort of reminded me of how Stephen Fry and his contempories came up. They started as their own thing and sort of got ‘discovered’. I like that, it’s genuine.
I also like how she tried to use her position to teach girls who might admire her. There was one scene (and, God, I hate People magazine for this) where Mindy was going to a photo shoot, something about beautiful people. Nice yeah? At the time she was a size 8 (which I think is a size 10 in the UK) so about average.Read more ›
It does read like Mindy is talking direct to you throughout the book. So that may appeal to lot's.
I think i was expecting more than i actually got, i agree with a few other review's that i feel this is aimed at the Teen/Young Adult Market.
It's a fun way to learn about Mindy's life and upbringing and how she became the successful woman she is today.
Topic's covered from her arriving in the USA as a young child from India, Her weight issues and she covers this in a fun and light hearted way throughout the book, to her experiences with her friendship's, growing up and getting new job's too.
Its written in a conversational style. I do think this would be a good book for young girls, experiencing self confidence issues, as Mindy show's it's possible to get where you want to even if your aren't a size 0. So for this reason alone i can't knock the book and give it a ultra low star rating. As young girls could benefit from reading this book. For a confidence boost. Would make a nice Xmas stocking filler Gift.
I just couldn't understand a lot of the cultural references, especially since I haven't really watched The Office (British or American versions), and it was a bit difficult to understand in certain parts, but not too much to be honest.
I think it was worth buying and reading it. I love her show and she is funny, and parts of this book are actually really really really amusing. She's just a normal person with a unique personality.
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.
