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 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!

Very well written, it's a laugh! You can relate such a lot to your own experiences of life. Well don Miranda!

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.

As the somewhat over-height product of a public school I may not be the most impartial reviewer, but this has had me laughing like a drain and doing that thing where you slow down to prolong the book when you see the end approaching.

I LOVE Miranda and this was a really funny and warm read. I think almost everyone can identify with her, the title says it all.
But I don't love that Amazon won't pay their fair share of UK taxes.

I really loved this book but I hate the way Amazon doges its UK taxes. There is wonderful writing here but we all need to shout loud until Amazon pays its fair share. I really enjoyed this author's earlier books Tell Amazon to sign that cheque or forever lose my respect and the respect, no doubt, of this very fine author

I love Miranda Hart so I thought I was in for a good read when I purchased this book and usually read a book in a day or quicker. I started this book and found it was total rubbish and made no sense at all, I read about 40 pages and put it down to try another day. I tried again and it still made little sense at all so the book sits there unread, has to be the worst book I have ever tried to read.
