Book review: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?
I've never seen The Office, I saw only a few minutes of the Mindy Kaling Project, but I picked up the book after reading some good reviews, and the reviewers were on target. It's a funny, funny book. A critic said it was like chatting with a very chatty girlfriend and he/she was right.
Coming so close on the heels of Tina Fey's "Bossypants," there's going to be some comparisons. It's pretty much laid out the same way: stories of an awkward childhood, breaking into comedy small time, breaking into comedy big time. But whereas Fey's book had a few serious moments, Kaling keeps things light through the whole book.
Favorite lines: Some people say living well is the best revenge, I say it's acid in the face!
There has ceased to be a difference between my awake clothes and my asleep clothes.
Pick it up, it's a lot of fun.
