Is It Just Me? | Miranda Hart | Review

The first thing I should admit before I start reviewing this book is that I’m completely obsessed with Miranda the TV show! I love it. I laugh out loud, literally have fits of giggles and can’t wait for the next episode! (And yes I quote the show in real life – Such fun!)

So when Is It Just Me? by Miranda Hart came out, as you can imagine, I was so excited and couldn’t wait to read it. However I had numerous other books to read first and forced myself not to jump ahead. When I finally got around to reading the book it did not fail to disappoint. The first sentence reads ‘My Dear Reader Chum, a very hearty hello to you.’ I could hear Miranda’s voice saying these exact words and it didn’t change the whole way through the book, it was as if she was sat on my shoulder reading this book too me!

The books takes us through different parts of life including, technology, beauty and holidays with Miranda giving her opinion and experiences in every chapter. There are lots of comical moments and parts where you cringe at the very thought but most importantly it kept me entertained the whole way through.

Now we don’t just get Miranda’s opinions and experiences of all these topics but an introduction to teenage Miranda (little Miranda). She allows us to have an insight in to the teenage years of Miranda. We here about lacrosse, boys and hating sciences whilst Miranda tries to educate little Miranda on how life is now. Introducing her to texting, Facebook and email! All of which are extremely comical to read.

Any Miranda fan should definitely give this book a try or even if you ‘don’t mind’ the TV show then it’s definitely worth a shot. Non-Miranda fans however should stay well clear! 5/5 stars
