Ellen is back at it again with Seriously… I’m Kidding
5 out of 5 stars
I’ve seen low reviews for this and I honestly don’t normally look at reviews for the book that I think I’m going to enjoy. I don’t want to be bummed out and sometimes people can be mean. I guess some of these reviewers don’t follow Ellen’s ending line from her show “Be kind to one another”.
Ellen is at it again with Seriously I’m Kidding. An incredibly enjoyable three-hour audiobook. Ellen’s wit and observations are some of my favorites. I’ve been a fan of her since as long as I can remember, and Seriously I’m Kidding was perfect to me. It was released and less than a week later I had the book on my kindle. Then a year later or so I bought the audiobook because I needed to hear her tell this collection of stories to me. I’m glad that I did because Ellen left me with my sides hurting and not needing medicine for years to come.
Overall, like I said with her last book; if you are an Ellen fan I think that you will enjoy this book. Seriously I’m Kidding is the perfect light read for any time in your life. Take a break, listen to this book, and relax. It’s what Ellen would want, isn’t it?
"I've experienced a whole lot the last few years, and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax, and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?"
