Audiobook Review: Seriously... I'm Kidding

Dear Ellen,

I’m so sorry, but I just could not get into your book. The content was just too random and unnecessary and you were reading WAY too fast. I know you never claimed it to be a sweeping epoch or even a biography but at the very least I thought it would amuse me on the road on my way to work for a couple of days– but I found myself with hardly a chuckle. There were several “chapters” that contained absolute nonsense (the one on meditation where it was blank, the one with colouring for the kids (no fun for the audiobook) and one with weird mouth noises and audio of eating an apple).

I still love you but I think next time I will just download your stand up or watch your show.

Yours, Jackie

I know there’s such a thing as constructive criticism but to me that is still criticism. It is just criticism with a jaunty hat.

Well– at least it was a library book so I didn’t pay for it like I did with the similarly bad Sarah Silverman and Simon Pegg autobios. I got one more celebrity book to read (Stephen Fry) then I think I will cool it with the comedians for a little while!

2 stars– I cannot believe I liked Rob Lowe’s book better! :(
