's review

liked it

I really enjoyed Mindy's voice in this. It felt like I was sitting and hanging out with my bestie.

With that said, however, I do have some bones to pick with this, hence my 3 star rating.

She mentions that people often think she's full of herself in the way that she talks about her endeavours...I agree. Yes, she (briefly) addresses her privilege of being American born in an affluent family and being highly educated and having an (apparently incomparable) incredible work ethic, and yes, she addresses that she is lucky to be able to tell the stories she's telling. But it all still felt a bit superfluous and "look at how famous I am" at times. I mean she says (and at times it feels like) that she's just trying to tell it like it is, but her style of writing, and I guess in turn her style of comedy, is just not for me?!?!!

.....I also finished this in like 2 sittings so I don't know what that means about my true feelings about this.....
