    1 thought on “Seriously...I'm Kidding”

    1. Note: This is a review of the audio edition.I love Ellen Degeneres. Seriously, I'm not kidding. I know what you're thinking: you can't truly love someone whom you've never met and probably never will. But I truly love her in the way you love someone — or something — that you know with your whole heart is making the world a better place to live. And I am positive of this fact when it comes to this woman.After a hard day, her humor and generosity and overall love for people and life are a balm [...]

    2. When I was a little girl, my grandfather once told me that when he spoke in front of a group, he often began with, "I know most people start their speeches with jokes, but I don't know any, so let's all think of our favorite joke and laugh." This book reminded me a lot of that joke. While I don't watch Ellen's talk show, I do really like her and have read her other books. This one seems gratuitous. One chapter is made up entirely of her making sounds. As in, mememememeeme. Or, bwabwabwa. A few c [...]

    4. Ellen DeGeneres is a beloved stand-up comedian, television host, bestselling author, and actress. She hosts the syndicated talk show The Ellen DeGeneres Show, i enjoyed this book so much i love Ellen i watch her show she is so funny , one of my favourite chapters, “What Would Jesus Do?” All these polls do is make everyone so judgmental. And I don’t believe in judgment. Unless is judgment of judgment. I don’t think someone has to “wear something better” or have a better hairstyle. Tha [...]

    5. Have you seen tumblr? I don't mean the pretty pictures. I mean this:You get the point. This is what Ellen's book is like. It is filled with the most random, sparse and off tangent thoughts I've ever had the opportunity to read.

    6. “It always helps to think about other people instead of ourselves.”I picked up this audiobook in hopes of it lifting up my spirits while I had a cold. And for the first two (out of three) hours it did its job. I laughed heartily while getting to forget for a minute that I was feeling awful. And two passages in particular really stayed with me.One for being witty: “Do things that make you happy within the confines of the legal system.”And the other for being relatable: “Leaning forward [...]

    7. You wanna read/listen to an amusing little time waster and you like Ellen DeGeneres' style of humor? This is your book. However, don't go into this expecting anything really substantial. Some chapters are a couple of words, maybe a sentence long. And while I adored some of the stories and was uplifted by the encouraging tone, that is where my biggest complaint is.I listened to this in 3 hours. This is the absolute shortest audiobook I've ever listened to--and this goes for almost $30 retail. You [...]

    8. SeriouslyI'm bored. And shocked. This audio is not well read by the author (how is that even possible?). There is little affect, there are no pauses, and it seemed like even she was racing to get to the end. The content was all over the place. I really like Ellen and I've always found her funny. I guess her humor doesn't translate well to books for me. Reading it for audio, it didn't seem like she found it funny, either. Sadly, 1 star.

    9. Although I really like Ellen, I thought this book was pretty lame. Old material from past comedy shows, and random thoughts. I was hoping for just a little information on Ellen herself Yes, it got a few laughs out of me, but seriously? Oh, she's kidding.

    10. 5 GLORIOUS STARS!!! is what I wanted to give SeriouslyI'm Kidding when I first picked it up. The peace and kindness message is great, but this lacks the funny far too much for an autobio from a comedian. I love Ellen DeGeneres. Wait, let me back up. I love the idea of Ellen DeGeneres. I really like her show. Her stand-uph. Unfortunately, this book is more like her stand-up. This very quick read (actually, I listened to her read it and it was only 3 cds) is filled with her silly titter-inducing j [...]

    11. One of my favorite parts: "It's so rare for people to actually set aside time to curl up with a book and read. By the way, I don't know you have to curl up to a book, but that's what people say. You can't just say you're going to read a book because then someone will ask, 'Well how are you going to read it? What position will you be in?''I'm gonna curl up.''Oh, good. So you're not gonna stand?''No, no. I'm gonna curl up.''Okay, good. Hey, you're not gonna lay on your side, are you?''No. I promis [...]

    12. “Accept who you are. Unless you're a serial killer.” Here's what you're going to do. You're not going to buy this book. You're not going to borrow it from the library. You're going to click on the nifty quotes section on the right and read through them. Snort into your coffee. Laugh embarrassingly loud at work, or on the train, or wherever you are right now. Then click out. Mark Seriously I'm Kidding as read and check out a cute kitten video.Because you're done. The actual book is disjointed [...]

    13. This book is a bunch of absurd disorderly ideas. But it still deserves 4 stars. Why? Well because it makes me laugh and clap, which many other books cannot.

    14. SeriouslyI'm Kidding by Ellen DeGeneres is a goofy, cute, and at-times comical book. Each chapter/section is random and does not make sense at some parts. If you like Ellen's brand of humour then this is a nice escape for a few hours. It's also a very quick read meant to pass the time. The book is supposed to highlight what's going on in Ellen's life but I'm able to pick out very little of what I think are actually real slices of her life when the rest is just meant to amuse and distract the rea [...]

    15. As expected, this book was a joke (get it, because Ellen is a comedienne?). Seriously though, this thirty dollar waste of time and money should-have-been-a-free-blog/twitter-post is an insult to Ellen's fan base. Yes, there are moments where I laughed out loud but that does not make up for the significant lack of cohesion or purpose behind anything Ellen wrote. It's as if she had come up with a bunch of unrelated but great one-liners and observations but didn't have anywhere to stick them in her [...]

    16. I only snickered a couple times while reading this. I wanted to laugh out loud! My favorite standard Ellen jokes are when she talks about not wearing pants or drinking too much wine.I guess my expectations were a little off when I read this. I wanted to hear jokes or more about Ellen's life, but instead, I got chapters where she encouraged me to recycle, to be happy, and to meditate. She sounded an awful lot like Oprah. Not really. Ellen doesn't take herself too seriously. (See the title.) She e [...]

    17. Ellen DeGeneres is one of my favorite TV personalities. I watch her shows almost like an addict! So naturally I was very excited about reading her book. But I am disappointed!First of all, it was not an actual book for me. I would rather love to call it a journal or something that one writes in an informal way!And the contents of it were another issue for me. Well, I really expected to laugh out loud reading her book just like I do while watching her shows. But that didn’t happen. I found out [...]

    18. Overall, the book was wonderful. It had so many laugh-out-loud moments. What made it even better, was that there were many great advices. Humor aside, Ellen Degeneres is a very cool woman and is easy to relate to. Aside from the fact that she is rich and famous :).The reason I'm taking away one star is because some of the jokes just didn't translate as well on the paper. Without her tone of voice and facial expressions, it's just wasn't the same. I've been a fan of her show forever, and on TV, s [...]

    19. ---3.5 starsHad read one of Ellen's books years ago and thought it was just 'okay.' It wasn't that I didn't like it, it just seemed her great personality and humor didn't translate as well to paper (I think I am in the minority there). I meant to read her other book but forgot until I saw this book of hers came out, but for some reason never got around to either one.In my humble opinion, this is a better way to read Ellen's books.Another case of 'Why not? Let's go for it :)'Ellen's narration was [...]

    20. Seriously? This was nothing but Ellen's very random thoughts similar to her stand up routines in the old days, interspersed with many MANY reminders to watch her talk show. I found the audio version, narrated by Ellen herself, funny for about 5 minutes and then it was just silly. If you like silly, you'll love this!! If not, do something else for 3 hours, like watch Ellen reruns.

    21. I listened to the audio version of this book and it's a lot like watching Ellen talk on her television show - lots of casual, humorous observations about everyday life. Ellen riffs on a wide variety of random topics, seemingly whatever pops into her head at the moment. For example: people who are late for dinner parties (it's rude and may lead to the hosts being in their pajamas by the time dinner ends); being a Cover Girl model - it's hard being beautiful; coming out as gay (she's "too gay" for [...]

    22. I love Ellen. After listening to this audiobook I still love Ellen! Some people don't normally find her that amusing. To those people I say, "You're stupid." Just kidding. If you didn't think that was funny, then you might not like this book. But to me, it was laugh-out-loud hilarity the whole way through. A few jokes were even so funny that I kept reliving them afterwards and going around town laughing sporadically. It is probably best that I just let people think that I'm laughing at them rath [...]

    23. I have to be honest, when I heard that Ellen had released another book I was beyond excited. Having read her previous works I was very excited to learn about what had been going on in her life since beginning her show. I was very curious to learn the “behind-the-scenes” details of things like American Idol and other things that had been going on since 2003. I was quickly disappointed.It saddens me that this book will, no doubt, hit the best-sellers lists for no reason other than DeGeneres’ [...]

    24. I think Ellen Degeneres is so funny and when I found this in the audiobook section of the library I had to download to listen. She narrorates the book too so how awesome is that! In the beginning I was cracking up, but then it became more of just her talking about any and everything and so it lost some of it's funny. While I didn't love it, I didn't hate it either. I still think she's very funny and would give her other books a try if I find them in the library too.

    25. Let's just say, I prefer Ellen Show to her book. Her shows are so much humorous, funny, and inspiring than this book. So yeah, seriously, I'm not kidding about the 3/5 stars.

    26. “So be who you really are. Embrace who you are. Literally. Hug yourself. Accept who you are. Unless you’re a serial killer.”I was having a pretty bad day when I started this. There was a lot of driving involved that I wasn’t looking forward to and an unexpected blizzard to boot. I always like a good audiobook to keep me company I just didn’t think anything was going to be able to get me out of the funk I was in — but I underestimated Ellen.I’m Kidding…Seriously aims at being a li [...]

    27. I probably should have read the reviews first before I embarked on this one, but hey, at least it was a quick read. I don't see Ellen's show very often because I work, but she seems pretty funny and the people she interviews seem to genuinely like her. This is the first book I read by her and it was pretty disappointing. I am guessing it may have been more amusing and enjoyable if I had been listening to an audio version - comedic timing and delivery can make such a difference, and it's seldom t [...]
