Essays. Family & Relationships. Nonfiction. Humor (Nonfiction.) HTML:NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER  In this hilarious instant classic, the creator of The Mindy Project and Never Have I Ever invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood.
[Kaling is] like Tina Feys cool little sister. Or perhaps . . . the next Nora Ephron.The New York Times
 
Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleckimpersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear Ill shut up about it? 
 
Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, youve come to the right book, mostly!
 
With several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? proves that Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Doornot so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.

Fist of all, I love how much Mindy Kaling loves her parents. It gives me hope that someday my kids will love me that much. Second of all, this was highly enjoyable. I laughed, I chuckled, I thought it ended too soon. ( )

The inner monologue of every awkward girl. ( )

Liked this more than I thought I would given how girly girly Mindy comes off in interviews/roles.

Was a little ashamed how much I enjoyed a book written by someone who honestly enjoys the Shopaholic series. ( )

This book is pretty funny - there were a few times that I literally laughed out loud. It isn't hilarious, though, and I was expecting it to be a little better than it was. The nice thing is that the chapters are super short, and the content is pretty superficial, so it's a very fast read. It'd be perfect for a bus ride or other situations where you can't necessarily concentrate on an in-depth novel. ( )

Diving straight into the book as soon as I received it, I expected just nonstop witty, creative, and funny writing that I could breeze through. I was disappointed, however, despite the fact that it was a pretty easy read, this took me three weeks to finish.

It's not like Mindy wasn't funny, witty or creative it was just that I got so bored and tired of it. Halfway through the book, I found myself stopping to count how many pages I had left. I did relate to a lot of what she wrote and agreed with her opinions, I started to think that was the problem.

Don't get me wrong, I love Mindy's writing on The Office and the Mindy Project and she is a great actress. I know that if I ever met her (my awkwardness aside) we would get along so well! (but don't we always think that?) but having to read it instead of listening to it really didn't sit well with me. I think I should have picked up the audiobook instead (I can't believe I am saying this!)
Overall this is for anyone that wants a quick read for the beach, or who enjoys reading manuscripts. ( )

Mindy Kaling is kind of a dork. And I like her all the more for it.

She and her new book, “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns),” are an absolute delight.
tillagd av bookjones | ändraThe Burg, Tonia Rutherford (Jan 4, 2012)
 
Kaling is a very smart woman who has worked her way from the low-rent apartment days in New York to owning a home in L.A. and breaking in to Hollywood's brutal inner circle.

This is a fun, light read that will make you laugh a few times.
 
Kaling’s prose is at its brightest and most memorable when she recounts her experiences in the entertainment world. Her confirmation that former “Office” star Steve Carell is an indisputably nice guy manages to simultaneously express admiration and exasperation. After a failed attempt to engage Carell in a healthy round of on-set snarking, Kaling writes, “Later I would privately theorize that he never involved himself in gossip because — and I am 99 percent sure of this — he is secretly Perez Hilton.”
tillagd av sduff222 | ändraWashington Post, Jen Chaney (Nov 18, 2011)
 
Her tale shares some of the relatable, comically mundane qualities of The Office, but without the cubicle-gray bleakness of the mockumentary. Instead, the story is pink, fresh, lively, and distinctly female—but it isn’t driven by sexual politics.
tillagd av sduff222 | ändraPopMatters, Sarah Watson (Nov 16, 2011)
 
The anecdotes go down easy, but have little resonance beyond the chuckles and knowing smiles they induce. The book’s strongest sections are those where Kaling dives a little deeper, as in the titular chapter, where she traces the familiar adolescent experience of leaving the safety of a clique she had less and less in common with for a new friend who shared and nurtured her growing love of comedy. Her struggles as a big fish in the small pond of Dartmouth College emerging into a vast, scary ocean of failure upon moving to New York, or her self-effacing recollection of her less-than-memorable stint guest-writing on Saturday Night Live are similarly endearing, and more emotionally resonant than bloggish asides like “In Defense Of Chest Hair” and “Why Do Men Take So Long To Put On Their Shoes?”
