's review

it was ok

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 Yes, it got a few laughs out of me, but seriously? Oh, she's kidding.

Debbie Just half listened to this. I feel bad because I like her as a show host but these books are not good at all.

Debbie "DJ" I do to, but definitely avoiding her books. Hopefully this is the only one :(

Debbie Um.. no there was one after this... just as bad. Maybe worse. I reviewed it.

Debbie "DJ" Oh no! I really like Ellen, but haven't watched her show in quite awhile. Will check out your review.

message 5: by Preeti (new) - added it

Preeti It looks like all her books kind of... suck. I read "My Point... And I Do Have One" a couple years ago and I basically had the same thoughts as you. In that book, at times she literally said "blah blah blah" and all while complaining throughout the book that she had a word minimum to meet. It was bad.

Kristy K I have to agree with you, unfortunately! As much as I love Ellen, I was pretty disappointed with this book. I suppose I was expecting something a bit more substantial and this book was anything but. There were a few nice chapters that resonated with me, but a lot of the material was so random and felt like it was there to simply fill up the pages. I did chuckle a few times at some of her lines, but overall this book was a let down for me. I wanted to read more about her life and her own experiences and some of the hardships she has been through. Damn, this could have been so much better.
