Miranda – Is it Just me? Review

January 22, 2013

I have just finished reading Miranda Hart’s book, Is it just me?. I absolutely loved it and will share my thoughts with you. The concept of the book isn’t a simple autobiography like most celebrities bash out by the time they turn 21. Instead, this book is about Miranda’s life while she is 38 and her talking to her 18 year old self, giving advice and slowly revealing how her life has turned out, for better and for worse.

The book is as its title describes, Miranda retells amusing tales of silly things she has managed to do and asks whether it is just her, a question many of us ask having been in an embarrassing situation. The book is divided in chapters, each with a different topic, marriage, Christmas, holidays and ending in dreams. Older Miranda has conversations with little Miranda, who is anxious to know about her future love life and career, I won’t spoil it, so you will have to wait and see whether she is disappointed or happy.

What I love about the book, which you may know if you have read my previous post on Miranda and ugly girls – https://theculturegirl.wordpress.com/2013/01/13/miranda-on-ugly-girls/ – is that it really is a morale boost, especially for women and young girls who either think they are in embarrassing situations all the time or have low self-esteem. When reading the stories and anecdotes, I can genuinely see Miranda managing to get herself into these situations.

This book will have you laughing out loud, so beware, I have been laughing on the train and in the gym because of this book. It is great, and if you like Miranda the sitcom, not only will you like the book, you will recognise some bits from it.

I guess the only problem with this book is if you don’t like Miranda then you won’t like this book. So don’t even bother picking it up. But, that honestly is the only downfall. I was reading this book, not wanting it to end, but wanting to get to the end to read it all!

In the end, read this book if you like Miranda and her type of comedy, because you will enjoy it and it will make you laugh. It isn’t just another boring autobiography and is a good and interesting read. So, I would thoroughly recommend it!
