Publisher's Summary

"I've experienced a whole lot the last few years, and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax, and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?"

Never had so much fun in reading a book

Ellen literally makes the best narrator for a book. The amount of randomness in this book totally suits Ellen' style and is just so enjoyable.

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 once...it's even better!

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

Rambling...

Fluff. Pleasant fluff, but fluff nonetheless.

Would you try another book written by Ellen DeGeneres or narrated by Ellen DeGeneres?

Narrated? Definitely. I enjoy Ellen's patter and I'm a big fan of hers. The performance was the saving grace of these three hours.

Written? Well... that's another story. There's nothing to this book. There are a few funny bits, of course, but probably fewer than you'd get watching one episode of her show (or binge watching clips on YouTube). She also tries to bring forward her thoughts on positivity and self-worth, but never gets beyond the surface or says anything that couldn't fit on a greeting card.

Its like she tried to write a memoir, a self-help book, and a comedy book all at once, but didn't trust her audience to stick with her for more than a few hours. What you're left with is a disappointing jack-of-all trades with no depth or direction.

I wouldn't absolutely rule out another book by her, but I'll be very suspicious of future offerings, which is a shame. I know she can do better.

Too Silly

Really gutted about this book. She's so funny! But I wanted abit more info about her life not silly noises, and loads of info about how I should live my life. I though it was an autobiography?
