A pleasant light-hearted look at a woman's point of view about everything - not to say that it offers advice or opinions, because it's not. It's simply a glance inside Mindy Kaling's head... and it seemed a lot like mine in there. Some parts were random lists or stories about things, which had me laughing my guts out. Simply because they were random. And funny. And how I too suddenly blurt out the most obtuse and inappropriate things. Mindy Kaling is me and a brave woman suit! Heck no, Mindy Kaling is my spirit animal. I wouldn't go so far to say this book in hilarious. I don't think that was her goal in writing this book. Just like as a performer or comedian we're not meant to be performing monkeys 'on' all the time just for your enjoyment. It was like sitting down on the lounge floor in you pj's and having a gasbag with your girlfriends. I love how the structure was broken up into flashbacks, lists, stories and comments on pictures... it really was like how evenings go with my girlfriends, clutching a glass of bubbly reminiscing and making each other cackle until we snort. I did want it to be funnier though. Or more engaging. But I understand in doing so it would have either been too serious, or too silly. This that the right amount of everything to kick back and relax, and to just enjoy reading. I appreciate how Mindy simply blurts out what's on her mind. It's finding a voice for much of my internal dialogue; and whether she intended the book to be like this or not, after reading it, I felt that if we were to run into each other at a party would become fast friends. And that is a great tone to have of a memoir. Masterfully done. So many hot key topics discussed without being pretentious. I recommend this to anyone who loves memoirs, or just loves being a girl.
