Comedian Miranda Hart laments on the horrors of growing up and offers her younger self some essential advice on grappling with life's unexpected perils and blunders

Well hello to you, dear browser. Now that 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 reader) 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.

Review

Is Miranda Hart a National Treasure yet? If not, it can only be a year or two before she joins Stephen Fry and Alan Bennett in the trophy cabinet of the country's affections... That personality and voice belong to a uniquely cherished comedian, and the answer to that question in her title is actually, yes - it is just her. Because there's nobody like Miranda. Daily Mail I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of Miranda Hart's new book - we should all embrace our inner Miranda gene and learn to laugh at ourselves. Daily Express Navigate the awkwardness of adult life with Miranda Hart's Is It Just Me? Grazia 'As you'd expect, it's very funny indeed... we applaud this bumbling, childish and splendid attempt to create such a guide, which includes Miranda verbally sparring with her 18-year-old self' ***** Heat 'Miranda Hart will carry you along with the sheer force of her charm, bumbling cheer and charisma'. Sunday Express This is pure, unadulterated, totally genius, Miranda. A cult (would religion be too weighty a word?) must surely follow, where can we get the T-shirt? Red Online Comedy queen Miranda recalls the awkward experiences she has encountered over the years and gives her unique thoughts and advice on dealing with them... Warning: you will laugh out loud on public transport while reading this! ***** Closer In her brilliantly funny book, TV's Miranda muses on some of the most challenging, baffling and 'hideola' aspects of life... all the anecdotes are told in her unique style, with regular interjections from her 18-year-old self. Such fun! ***** Star 'Before reading this, we didn't know the meaning of embarrassing'. Now

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Lady Aug. 5 2013
By Lorna
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Why I bought this book..I seen Miranda first on Call the Midwives. I fell in love with her. I have a very tall teenager in my family 6foot 2 inches and when I showed her Miranda's TV shows she fell in love with her. I read pieces of the book out loud and we can relate, you are a lovely Lady..keep making us laugh...those i would like to read it are people who feel they are wierd and do not fit in. Read the book, short, fat, tall, any where you stand in life you will relate. Wonderful book

Not as interesting or funny as I had hoped. Although I had heard from family in England, praising her, it did not live up to my expectations.

1.0 out of 5 stars Trite and boring Jan. 7 2013
By sosure
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Whilst I loved her sit-com, and midwives IS brilliant, I wish I could say the same about this dreadfully dull book. First time in years I have failed to finish a book because the style was so annoying while the observations are trivial and shallow. Come on Miranda ..YOU cand do better.

5.0 out of 5 stars We need more Miranda here in the US! Feb. 8 2013
By Rebecca Anne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I can't imagine simply reading this book. I love audiobooks anyway, but this one seems tailor made to be enjoyed as a listening experience, read by the hilarious and expressive author/comedian herself. Here in the US, I had never heard of Miranda until I saw her as Chummy in Call the Midwife. I love her in that role and I subsequently enjoyed all the clips I could find of her on YouTube in the sitcom "Miranda," which sadly can't be found here, as the DVDs are coded for the UK only.

Miranda is refreshing and hilarious in her musings on the little things in life we don't always tend to talk about, like the awkwardness of small talk with a hairdresser or how lunch is the main attraction of a boring workday in an office job. I can't think of the best examples right now, but her style is unique and engaging, and I am in love with her! I think everyone can relate to her, and she also has some slightly more serious gems thrown in, including how not being classically gorgeous can actually make you into a better and happier person. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars If you like Miranda Hart you'll like (and might love) this book Jan. 9 2013
By R. P. Bolton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Reading 'Is It Just Me?' is like sitting down passively while Miranda (and the young Miranda) talk to you and, incidentally, to each other. It's almost as if she really is talking. Perhaps the book wasn't written so much as dictated. Or she simply writes as she talks which is amusing in itself. But don't expect to be intellectually challenged or spiritually uplifted or anything like that. Just sit back and be amused by this kind and gentle young (well, thirty-eight) woman who unintentionally and innocently makes you want to save her from herself. One thing: the book is clearly written for Miranda's contemporaries (that is, young -- well, thirty-eight -- English women) as if nobody else will ever read it. I am an old man from the antipodes but I enjoyed her show and I enjoyed this book. Indeed, Miranda, I 'got it' even if you didn't give me a single thought as you wrote it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get the audiobook, but you will embarrass yourself by laughing out loud if listened to in public May 4 2013

Review for the audiobook:
I am starting my 30's and just beginning to hit strides in my own career. I too am a bit of a late bloomer, therefore I found this book to be completely relatable. Honestly it almost feels like a self-help book but with a lot more humor, which makes you feel a lot happier about the choices you made in life even if you haven't gone down the road you planned. I listen to this book in public and find myself laughing out loud.
A lot of reviewers are saying that if you've seen her show then the book is disappointing. I can't say that at all. There are so many elements in the book that are different. For one the premise of the book is different than her show. I love the conversation between Miranda's 18 year old self and her 38 year old self. I wish I could tell my 18 year self a few hard truths. The book is really more about her life than a fictional version of her life. She has said many times that the Miranda character is nothing like her in real life. To me the show and the book are giving me different perspectives. It is all her material so you are bound to have similarities. For me that's fine. That's the reason I got the book. I knew the kind of humor I was getting.

I recommend getting the audiobook because what can be better than Miranda reading the book to you in her tone of voice. She's extremely funny in it and I just love it. It's a light hearted take on her experiences with life so far and you will laugh because you have experienced them to.
PS. Please bring the show to the US. Put it on Amazon Instant or Netflix. It's a shame it's not here yet.
