Overview

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”
 
Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!
 
In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.

This enhanced eBook includes an audio introduction from the author; audio commentary from Mindy’s friends, including The Office costar B. J. Novak and Parks and Recreation creator Michael Schur; bonus photos, including an exclusive “Avalanche of Awkwardness” slideshow of never-before-seen childhood photos with audio commentary; and three full chapters read by the author.

I loved this (audio) book. I have to say, I am glad I purchased the audio version because so much of the humor is in Mindy's delivery. Mindy's delightful rambling is an invitation into the mind of a young, witty, charming, and hysterically funny woman. I found my self wanting to interject and converse with her because I became so wrapped up in the "conversation" we were having. As with most of the best conversations, Mindy travels from topic to topic relating her experiences and observations in a light hearted whimsical random fashion. She and I could hang all day long and talk about nothing while talking about everything at the same time. Does this review leave you curiously entertained, but no more informed that when we started? Good! That's how the book goes. And I loved it! Enjoy!

This book was witty, light, cheerful and absolutely adorable! It's a quick read and even if you are not a fan of The Office it would still be enjoyable. Mindy is very down to earth and surprisingly easy to relate to. I think this book would make an excellent Christmas gift and plan on buying it for my sister.

I bought Kaling's book after hearing my 27year old daughter talk about it and I LOVE it! Kaling's humor is off-beat, creatively inspired, fabulously self-depricating, sharply critical of stupidity that abounds in society and in short excruciatingly funny. I am sorry that I am running out of pages as I approach the end of this book! Laugh-out-loud funny!! (I want more!)

I feel like everyone in the world should read Mindy's book - it is life changing. It is one of the funniest books I have ever read - even better than Tina Fey's "Bossypants," AND all of Chelsea Handler's books. I have purchased it for all of my friends.

I was hesistant about this book at first as I thought it was going to be yet another cheesy Teenage-Self-Help book. To my surprise, I found myself engulfed and laughing out loud on more than one ocassion. A must read especially if you have been a transplant in search of career opportunities and failed miserably at it.

I've only read the Nook sample so far, but this book is not a self-help book, it is akin to Tina Fey's "Bossypants." Mindy Kaling explicitly says so in the Introduction to her book. It seems very funny and relatable so far, Im off to buy it now.

I've always liked Mindy on the office, so i decided to try her book out. I honestly didn't expect much from it. I usually stick to fiction. I loved this book. It was hilarious. It's so easy to connect with her, i felt like i was reading about my own life. My love for this book made me start watching her show. Mindy Kaling, you are hilarious!

This was a quick and funny read. Mindy Kaling seems very down-to-earth and easy to relate to, and she's very funny. I think this book would be enjoyable even to people who don't watch her show The Office.

This quick read made my day! I've never laughed so hard. I highly recommend it to any Woman that's having a bad day or just needs a good laugh. I couldn't put it down or stop talking about it!

Funny and snappy quick read that makes you fall in love with the all american indian girl! I love the humor that Mindy writes and the way she tells it just like you're thinking. Mindy is the kind of gal I would love to call my friend!

This book is hilarious. I picked it up at Target and randomly started to skim through it, and then ended up walking around the whole store reading out passages to my sister as we shopped. I bought it and when I was done reading it, I was a little sad. This book is just what you want from a comedian--it's hilarious not because she's trying to transpose her stand-up onto a book format with the horrible result of sounding like it's an endless stream of uninspired jokes (ahem, anything ellen degeneres has written), but its funny because of the way that she has written about her life. It's honest, engaging, light hearted, and hilarious. After this, I will read anything she writes.

I absolutely loved this book- it's easily relatable and a great fast read. She makes you think after you laugh, and that's always a great quality to find in a book like this. I would definitely recommend buying this !

This is a "non-traditional" autobiography: Kahling makes hysterical and honest observations throughout her life, as well as adding in thoughts on random subjects, which are also super funny. Its a simple, quick read, maybe a few nights worth of reading or a lazy afternoon. I laughed out loud in many parts and I am not a fan of The Office or SNL and still thought it was relateable and humerous throughout.

I failed to find the humor in this book. To me she just sounds bitter

I didn't love this book to be honest. It started off great- funny, entertaining, and lighthearted, but it didn't have a plot so it got boring pretty quickly. I think it was geared more toward a teenage audience. I'm in my mid-20s and I couldn't get through it.
