Publisher's Summary

Well hello to you dear audiobook browser. Now I have your attention it would be rude if I didn't tell you a little about my literary feast. So, here is the thing: Is it just me or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination, and sometimes unexplained nudity that accompanied childhood and adolescence? Does everybody struggle with the hazards that accompany, say, sitting elegantly on a bar stool; using chopsticks; pretending to understand the bank crisis; pedicures - surely it's plain wrong for a stranger to fondle your feet? Or is it just me?
I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences - from school days to life as an office temp - and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you, too, dear listener) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path. Because frankly where is the manual? The much needed manual to life. Well, fret not, for this is my attempt at one and let's call it, because it's fun, a Miran-ual. I thank you.

Cackle Worthy

What made the experience of listening to Is It Just Me? the most enjoyable?

I sat with my 10 year old daughter over 4 or 5 nights and together we enjoyed the rollicking tales Miranda Hart spun for us . Both of us are mad fans of Miranda's show and were thoroughly excited to learn more about this comic goddess. We here pleased to hear catchphrases from her show, insights into life and silly banter between her present self and her younger self.

What did you like best about this story?

What I liked best was Ms Harts' ability to make herself the joke simply to make us happy. It is so refreshing in this day and age when humour and comedy is all about pulling others down and laughing at their expense that Miranda is willing to make herself the butt of the joke (often literally!). I am sure my daughter most enjoyed the tales of catastrophe and of course the 'poo' stories.

What about Miranda Hart’s performance did you like?

It was well delivered with equal measures of gusto and grace. Miranda knows how to perform and there was often (but not always) a clear delineation between her present self and her younger self. Actually I found that my daughter and I would talk to each other with Miranda's plum in the mouth middle class British accent which was hilarious in itself as we are ocker Aussies from the Oz bush!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

We would have loved to knock this book off in one sitting, however 7 hours was a little too adventurous for us.

Any additional comments?

Although there were some moments where our interest waned, I would highly recommend anyone listen to 'Is It Just Me' rather than read it. Miranda is a right scream and we had a nice time - it was almost like watching a whole series of Miranda. Such fun!

Miranda is just delightful...

Miranda played on Australian TV a couple of years ago. Miranda Hart simply demands attention... her quirkyness, her authentic playfulness, her relish in being herself. All of this is found in "Is it just me?"

A romp. And genuine fun. Highly recommended.

fantastic!

I'm a big fan of Miranda so maybe this review is a bit biased. But nevermind, I really loved this book, it was such fun!



And Miranda narrating it was superb, she is SO GOOD. It seemed as if she was really enjoying reading her book.



I loved this book, every minute of it.

Funny but not hilarious

If you could sum up Is It Just Me? in three words, what would they be?

I love Miranda!

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

It was disappointing when compared to the brilliant TV series. Her younger self was extremely irritating and ruined the whole listening experience for me.

What about Miranda Hart’s performance did you like?

Miranda was an excellent narrator and made the listening experience more authentic. It would not have felt right if someone different had narrated it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, but only because of her younger self.

For anyone who has thought "Is It Just Me?"

What made the experience of listening to Is It Just Me? the most enjoyable?

Miranda made me think about myself, my life. She shares what we all think but rarely say. That it's okay if we aren't always perfect, that in this media and image obsessed world that there is more to life than looking and appearing to be perfect, that it's not necessary to live your life by anyone's expectations but your own.

What did you like best about this story?

Miranda Hart has a talent with words, despite what she might say, and her voice just brings it to life.

What does Miranda Hart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

If you love Miranda Hart as a comedic actress, then you would just not have as good a experience reading as you do listening. She has sound effects, puts on voices and has fantastic conversations with her younger self.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I took later trains just so I could sit on the platform longer to be a part of her world.

Any additional comments?

Miranda Hart was always going to be a funny writer, but I've found more depth than could ever have imagined. She's given herself to this book, honestly and without shame and it has made me want to live my life more like she does. Truly honored to have read it.

This Dear Listener Chum is impressed

Loved it, so typically Miranda and I say that with love and gratitude as someone who was also a bit uncool at school and now "really doesn't care" what others think. Such fun.
