This is why I can't read books for pleasure during the semester. I've gotten nothing done all day because all I wanted to do was read this book. She is so funny, and I just want us to be best friends. ( )

From start to finish I was laughing. Mindy has a remarkable ability to take quips from her life and make them entertaining. A highly enjoyable read. ( )

If I were to share just one observation about Mindy Kaling’s memoir, it would be this: there are a lot of lists.

Most celebrity memoirs I’ve read are filled with essays that lean more toward stories about their life. They feel more biographical. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? had a little of that to be sure, but it was mostly at the beginning and it faded out quickly. At the very beginning, she does address that this memoir is not going to be like Bossypants (though she says very nice things about Tina Fey and advises the reader to pick up another copy).

The comedy in Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? is a bit darker than I generally prefer. Also, written ten years ago, I feel some of the comedy is a bit … outdated? It reminds me of the first season of The Office, which pushes the line between funny and cringe (which she defends staunchly, but the way – she loves the first season of The Office). More than once, Kaling says “I know I’m not supposed to say this, but….”. The comedy didn’t work for me the way I wanted it to? But I think the people who enjoy Kaling’s comedy style will enjoy this book.

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? is probably the shortest memoir I’ve read. Because of that, and because of the list-heavy format of the second half of the book, I’m struggling to write a thorough review. I don’t think it’s the best memoir I’ve read – I felt like I learned very little about Kaling and maybe her other memories talk a little more about her life and career. If you want a peek inside Kaling’s head, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? is the way to do it. ( )

I really liked these windows into Mindy Kaling's life. I could hear her voice through the text and that was actually how it should be. I haven't actually seen a lot of her work, but I really enjoy reading about women's lives right now, so this was really something for me. Considering reading the next one as well. ( )

I may be one of the few people of my particular generation who is indifferent to “The Office.” I am not disinclined to watch it, but make no concerted effort to seek it out (which is actually my attitude towards most of the offerings of television). What appealed to me in this book was the fact that it was written by an apparently successful, single, witty and intelligent Asian Indian female in the entertainment industry. Though Kaling is smart and funny throughout her essays, the book is about the right length; any more would result in trying a little too hard, as she does in some sections already. Still, this is an amusing and easy read from an Asian American female writer, and is worth a look. ( )

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.

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.”

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.
tilføjet af sduff222 | RedigerPopMatters, 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?”
