Publisher's Summary

Winner: Popular Non-Fiction Book of the Year - Specsavers National Book Awards 2012
Well hello to you dear audiobook browser. Now I have your attention it would be rude if I didn't tell you a little about my literary feast. So, here is the thing: Is it just me or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination, and sometimes unexplained nudity that accompanied childhood and adolescence? Does everybody struggle with the hazards that accompany, say, sitting elegantly on a bar stool; using chopsticks; pretending to understand the bank crisis; pedicures - surely it's plain wrong for a stranger to fondle your feet? Or is it just me?
I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences - from school days to life as an office temp - and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you, too, dear listener) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path. Because frankly where is the manual? The much needed manual to life. Well, fret not, for this is my attempt at one and let's call it, because it's fun, a Miran-ual. I thank you.

What the Critics Say

"That personality and voice belong to a uniquely cherished comedian" (Daily Mail)
"This is pure, unadulterated, totally genius, Miranda. A cult (would religion be too weighty a word?) must surely follow, where can we get the T-shirt?" (Red Online)
"I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of Miranda Hart's new book - we should all embrace our inner Miranda gene and learn to laugh at ourselves." (Daily Express )
"In her brilliantly funny book, TV's Miranda muses on some of the most challenging, baffling and 'hideola' aspects of life... all the anecdotes are told in her unique style, with regular interjections from her 18-year-old self. Such fun!" (Star)
"Is Miranda Hart a National Treasure yet? If not, it can only be a year or two before she joins Stephen Fry and Alan Bennett in the trophy cabinet of the country's affections... That personality and voice belong to a uniquely cherished comedian, and the answer to that question in her title is actually, yes - it is just her. Because there's nobody like Miranda." (Daily Mail)
"Funny and charming and full of terrific comic ideas... Unlike most comedians, she can actually write... Every Christmas there is, at the very most, one celeb book that is genuinely worth buying and reading. Here is this year's. Accept no substitutes." (The Spectator )
"Miranda Hart will carry you along with the sheer force of her charm, bumbling cheer and charisma." (Sunday Express)

Funny but not hilarious

If you could sum up Is It Just Me? in three words, what would they be?

I love Miranda!


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

It was disappointing when compared to the brilliant TV series. Her younger self was extremely irritating and ruined the whole listening experience for me.


What about Miranda Hart’s performance did you like?

Miranda was an excellent narrator and made the listening experience more authentic. It would not have felt right if someone different had narrated it.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, but only because of her younger self.
