Ellen's first book is SO hilarious! You can hear her voice inside your head with every word you read. Which is actually kind of spooky. But fun at the same time. I know she'll come back to haunt me in the afterlife and she'll just be talking and talking and talking to me non-stop. I'll never be able to take a shower alone again.
Anyway...I've read this book twice now, and it never ceases to amaze me with its laugh-out-loud humor and prose. I pick it up when I need a good laugh. In fact, that makes it a great pick-me-up! It never gets old for me.
I've also given this book as a gift to friends. Thankfully you can find it really cheap now. :)
So what are you waiting for? Order this book and you'll have something to read over and over and over again! You'll never have to buy another book.

I know that this is the first book that she wrote, but I didn't read until after I read her newest one. I have to say that I was laughing the entire time. It truely is a wonderful piece of work and I can't wait to read it again. It's like an instant pick-me up. So, I recommend this to anyone who loves, needs, or wants to laugh. If you are neither of the 3, then still get a copy. I promise, you'll love it!!

Ellen's sit-com, which is shown on TV in Singapore, is quite a pleasure to watch. I bought the book on the blind faith that it would be just as funny as the sit-com. What a mistake! I found perhaps a short paragraph that could pass off as being slightly funny every 15 to 20 pages. The rest was a pure torture to read. The title "My Point - And I Do Have One" is very misleading. It will be obvious to the reader that Ellen DOES NOT have a point, and that the entire book itself is pointless. Ellen would start off by narrating an event in her life that the reader tries hard to follow (in order to catch the joke). A couple of pages later, Ellen would admit that whatever she had written earlier was either false, or a gross exaggeration. She will then repudiate what she wrote earlier and proceed to narrate a "true" version of that event. A few paragraphs or a page later, Ellen admits that even her second version was false, and proceed to tell a "true" third version of the story. At the end of the chapter, the reader learns that the event never happened at all, and that the different versions of the (imaginary) event were just ramblings. Is this supposed to be funny? I think the only point Ellen was trying to make is that if you are a famous TV personality, you can write absolute trash and people will still buy your book.

Having watched Ellen's standup for the past 15 years or so, this book is so true to her. Her goofy nature, her ramblings, her self-deprecating humor, her screwball imagination, it's all typical Ellen. I don't think readers should expect an autobiography, I think they should expect typical Ellen humor. I don't expect everyone to like this book, but I read this entire book on a long bus ride once and I was laughing so hard, the lady next to me thought I was crying. This book is for true Ellen fans, and anyone who wants a good laugh. For those looking for an in depth analysis of Ellen's life, look elsewhere. This is 100% pure Ellen. This book is mostly fictional. It doesn't pretend to be real. Those people who read this book and find it unfunny or confusing are obviously attuned to a different type of humor. This book should be read if you want a totally goofy good time. Yes, of course it rambles. So does Ellen, she always has. This book is Ellen's humor and her personality in a neat little package. I just wish she would write more!

Ellen Degeneres has been surrounded by controversy ever since she came out of the closet as a lesbian--and that's what I was waiting for in her book, My Point...and I Do Have One. Instead, what I found was a bunch of ramblings that had nothing to do with her life. In fact, the only chapter that actually dealt with her life--Chapter One--wasn't serious at all. It was an interview Degeneres had with a neighbor from her childhood year, asking her what she remembered about her. All the neighbor had to say was that she was fat and had no friends. I was expecting to learn about her experiences as a gay woman, her life, her hardships, her influences. This book offered none of that. Ultimately, I was disappointed in the lack of sincerity and intensity of the book. To me, it seemed frou-frou, disorganized, and not at all real. I felt I wasted my time by reading it. I could have watched her show and gotten the same information, at the same time seen some funny acting. Her book was written like her TV show, a rambling discussion about whatever she chooses. It was as if she picked out her subjects from a hat, and then wrote about them. Every time Ellen began a discussion based on the chapter heading, she veered off into something totally different. But at the every end of the chapter, in a weak attempt to regain the thread of her topic, she returns briefly to her main point. Her book was really not based on anything, and each chapter had nothing to do with the others. There's one chapter dedicated to her famous French toast recipe with squid, and another about what people should do to annoy co-workers. Some are lists, poems, journal entries, apology letters, fill-in-the-blanks, and just plain prose, but they are all individual and different.Read more ›
