Almost Interesting by David Spade

“FYI, this book is not that serious. This is meant to be read when super bored, then forgotten fifteen minutes later. It could be read cover-to-cover during one medium-to-severe case of diarrhea.”

Well one thing is for sure, David Spade was right, this book was not that serious…this audiobook was hilarious! And it was not forgotten 15 minutes later.

I knew of David Spade only from his role in Rules of Engagement where I thought he was hilarious. I saw this book on Audible, and when I saw Spade was the narrator…I had to try it. And I’m so glad I did!

First off, I had no idea that he is the brother in law of Kate Spade! Or that he had been in so many different shows and movies. I only knew him from Rules of Engagement. Now, I definitely want to watch the shows and movies that he talked about in this book, especially Tommy Boy and SNL.

I thought this book was hilarious and with him as the narrator….you will be laughing the entire time. I love how honest he is about himself and how he never tries to make himself seem better than he is. If anything, he should be giving himself more praise than he does! His stories are hilarious and his self-deprecating humor makes you laugh as well. 

I highly highly recommend this audiobook. Unless you get offended by cursing or some mild crude humor…..then definitely don’t listen to it.

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling

I decided to try this as an audiobook as I really love Mindy Kaling. I love the character that she plays in the Office and I was curious to see how Mindy Kaling really was compared to the character that she plays.

I enjoyed listening to this very much. Mindy came across so well in this audiobook. She made me laugh and not want to stop playing the audio. This is the perfect audiobook if you have any kind of long commute as it will leave you wanting more and will make your drive go by so much quicker.

I loved hearing about Mindy’s life prior to the Office. I also had no idea that in addition to acting on the Office, she was also a writer for the show. This makes me want to rewatch the Office to be able to see the episodes from a new perspective.

Her life story took me surprise. While I didn’t really have any preconceived notions about her, I found that I was judging her more on her character in the Office which is definitely not who she is as a person.

I highly highly recommend this audiobook. I also went to get it as an ebook to see what the difference is like.
