This book would have been a whole lot funnier if Ellen had been standing in my living room just chatting the book to me (or, maybe, if I had listened to it on tape (or CD, whatever)). I think (as evidenced by Bossypants but refuted by Mindy Kaling) that it might be difficult to convey funny in book form. Ellen is a funny woman. Her book was not so much. There were parts that made me smile, but she wasn't making me laugh. And that is what you want to do when you read a book of anecdotes written by a comedienne. The good news is that the book is short and quick, so it's not a huge investment.
