Love her voice, but expected more insight

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The depth of her stories. I wanted to get to know her better. I bought this book because as a person I find her so appealing. But the book left me wanting more. I felt like listening to Ellen's wonderful voice but a scrpt from Seinfield.

Has Seriously...I'm Kidding turned you off from other books in this genre?

I heard Tina Fey Bossy Pants before and expected a similar experience. The book left me dissapointed. I am now listening to other genre, but it is partly before, aside from Tina and Ellen, none of the other female comediants of my generation appeal me as much as these two. I would listen to another book by Ellen, hopefully deeper and just as funny.

What about Ellen DeGeneres’s performance did you like?

She has a unique voice. Just listening to her voice made me smile.

Do you think Seriously...I'm Kidding needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

YES. But not to follow-up, but to show the real potential of Ellen as a writter. It left me feeling like this was not the best she could do.

Exactly what you would expect from Ellen

Where does Seriously...I'm Kidding rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book is light and funny and I couldn't really tell what the story was. Probably because she's a comedian and her point is to be entertaining. Not a serious book. It's perfect if you are looking for a light, easy, quick read that will make you smile.

What about Ellen DeGeneres’s performance did you like?

She's funny! She speaks funny and writes funny. When you get to hear both at's even better!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
