Love the title...and I know everyone is hanging out without me, I see the evidence on my Facebook, after all...
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) - Mindy Kaling

๏ ๏ ๏  Book Blurb ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 

 

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?” 

 

Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!

 

In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka

 

 

 

๏ ๏ ๏  My Review ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 

I don't usually read many memoir type stories, and I really only listened to this because I needed a title that ends in a question mark.  I would say this more the musings of a comedian than a memoir, though.  I've never seen The Office or The Mindy Project, but I don't think that matters entirely, at least not to enjoy this.  I laughed out loud many times and if I didn't laugh, I at least smiled.  I can't really say anything bad about something that makes me laugh...

The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains, A Tale of Travel and Darkness ~ Audio
The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains - Eddie Campbell,Neil Gaiman

This is the second audio book I have listened to via Scribd on the iOS app, while the app could use some work, the story and the narration were awesome.  I now want to get the e-book so I can see the illustrations that go with the story.  I've said it before and I'm saying it again.... Neil Gaiman is an amazing storyteller and after listening to this I want to go back and relisten to Neverwhere, Stardust, Ocean at the End of the Lane...pretty much all of his stories that he narrates.  My review of this is short as is the story (but it still packs quite the punch), an evocative story of revenge and death with fabulous narration that is accompanied with a string quartet playing in the background.

 

This quote from the story as it really stood out to me 

 

"Sometimes I think the truth is a place, In my mind, it is like a city: there can be a hundred roads, a thousand paths, that will all take you, eventually, to the same place. It does not matter where you come from.  If you walk toward the truth, you will reach it, whatever path you take"  ..................... "You are wrong.  The truth is a cave in the black mountains.  There is one way there, and one only, and the way is treacherous and hard, and if you choose the wrong path you will die alone, on the mountainside"
