Synopsis

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.

Not for me
March 16th, 2015
I was looking for a light read but this was just so far out of my interests that I was very bored. I respect Mindy but I found the book shallow and uninteresting.

Is everyone hanging...
January 25th, 2015
I feel like my sister from another mother nailed it. Cindy is awesome, no, Mindy, my bad. So glad she embraces and owns her body-you know why they call clothes a size 0? because that is how much personality you need to fit in them. What self-respecting woman says no to chocolate? Love you Mindy, call me and we will do lunch-later!

Great read
January 24th, 2015
Irreverent and funny, it's easy to see what has made Mindy Kaling a successful tv comedy writer. If you enjoy any of her television work you will obviously enjoy this read, but I think it is valuable beyond that as well. In particular I think this is a book that young women would benefit from reading. Not just those interested in a similar career, but those who are learning about who they are and what they love, and how to shape that into a genuine and fulfilling adulthood.

More Mindy!
November 14th, 2014
I couldn't get enough of this book. Talking in her blunt fashion that never gets old, Mindy captures what it's like to be in a forever gabbing, gossiping, thinking, creating mind. It can get you into trouble but who cares, because you're just doing you. Mindy reminds you of this in her easy-to-read, funny manner.

You will be laughing out load with every page you read!

This book is just hilarious! If you’ve seen Mindy as Kelly Kapoor in The Office or as Mindy Lahiri in her new show The Mindy Project then you know what a comical character she plays in these roles and seeing as Mindy Kaling is just such an absolutely talented human being you would know that she was a writer for both shows, so this books will not disappoint. Not that Mindy is like the characters she plays on TV, but she will definitely makes you laugh just as hard.

A must-read for Mindy fans! A sweet and honest account of her childhood and early career. You probably won't be asked to write a book report on this, but you will be entertained.

Is everyone hanging out without me?
July 31st, 2014
It was very well written compared to most bio's but I did find it a tad dull. Also though it was different because here was a woman writing her bio and it wasn't infiltrated about boys or men and the heartache that she went through. This book, through and through is warmly written and not over the top. Kinda like the way a bio should be.

Laugh out loud funny. Plus she used the word 'whimsy' the perfect number of times, which I adore.

Mindy's the best!

Easy, bright, honest and all those other cliche things real book reviewers write. Read it! Had much fun making others wonder, "What is that guy reading?" Or, "Do you think he has a neurological disorder?" - cuz I don't remember how to spell Tourettes - is that it?!

If you love Mindy's dry sense of humour and want a glimpse into the life of a Hollywood writer (or Hollywood writer wannabe), this is your book.

I loves this book. It was hilarious. I kept laughing out loud the hole way through. If you are a fan of the office or The Mindy project, please read this book. It's an easy read. I read it all within a few hours. I just couldn't put the book down. Her personality and comedy are priceless.
