I laughed out loud when reading this one. I even read several passages to my husband and he laughed too. It was typical Ellen. She was all over the place (I seriously think she must have a bad case of ADD) but always ended up getting to the point and there really were a few messages in the book. If you need some light reading and a few laughs, this is the book for you. ( )

To jest już jej druga książka, którą przeczytałam. Podobnie jak poprzednia zawiera humorystyczne historie z życia Ellen, lecz nie jest to autobiografia. Ellen pisze między innymi o życiu, starzeniu się, jej wyborze tytułu książki, przywiązaniu do rzeczy, szczerości i stereotypach. Znalazło się tu także kilka stron z obrazkami do pokolorowania dla dzieci.

Język książki jest prosty i przystępny dla każdego, przez co książka ta idealnie nadaje się dla osób, które dopiero zaczynają swoją przygodę z książkami po angielsku. Ellen z porządną dawką humoru porusza poważne tematy, dzięki czemu możemy się nie tylko pośmiać, lecz także zastanowić się nad naszym życiem. Książka jest o wszystkim i o niczym, jednocześnie poważna i zabawna. Jest w niej kilka naprawdę świetnych rozdziałów, jednak z drugiej strony niektóre wydają się pozbawioną głębszego sensu paplaniną. Nie wszystkie żarty autorki mnie śmieszyły, niektóre z nich już znałam z poprzedniej książki lub z talk-show Ellen. Właśnie to powielanie trochę mnie rozczarowało, przez co obniżyłam ocenę książki. Jeśli jednak nie czytaliście jej poprzedniej książki to tą gorąco polecam, a szczególnie audiobook czytany przez samą Ellen! ( )

Road trip! 2,500-mile round trip taking my daughter to college and driving back alone calls for a whole lot of audiobooks. (3 of 7)

Comic comfort food. I could almost feel this book evaporate from my brain shortly after it passed through my ears, but it sure felt good in the moment. ( )

O-M-G!!!! I almost got into an accident a few times because I was laughing so hard. I love Ellen and this book is full of the randomness that makes Ellen so fun. ( )

Seriously...I’m Kidding

I Picked Up This Book Because: Seemed like a good idea at the time.

The Story:

Just a fun way to spend a few hours. Ellen is so fun loving, positive and entertaining. It’s hard to believe there is ever anything but joy in her home.

The Random Thoughts:

Favorite Quotes:

“You're never too old to play. You're only too old for low-rise jeans.”
“If someone ever says you’re weird, say thank you.”

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446585025, Hardcover)

I've experienced a lot the last few years and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?
