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.

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.

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!

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.

Get the audiobook, but you will embarrass yourself by laughing out loud if listened to in public May 4 2013
By Celeste Thoms - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition with Audio/Video
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.

Yet again another piece of comedy genius from Miranda Hart. Read it in a very short space of time and found it hard to put down. Absolutely loved it!
Eagerly awaiting Series 3 of her sit com :)
