What made the experience of listening to Is It Just Me? the most enjoyable?

Miranda made me think about myself, my life. She shares what we all think but rarely say. That it's okay if we aren't always perfect, that in this media and image obsessed world that there is more to life than looking and appearing to be perfect, that it's not necessary to live your life by anyone's expectations but your own.

What did you like best about this story?

Miranda Hart has a talent with words, despite what she might say, and her voice just brings it to life.

What does Miranda Hart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

If you love Miranda Hart as a comedic actress, then you would just not have as good a experience reading as you do listening. She has sound effects, puts on voices and has fantastic conversations with her younger self.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I took later trains just so I could sit on the platform longer to be a part of her world.

Any additional comments?

Miranda Hart was always going to be a funny writer, but I've found more depth than could ever have imagined. She's given herself to this book, honestly and without shame and it has made me want to live my life more like she does. Truly honored to have read it.
