I love to watch Ellen DeGeneres, but I have to say I was kind of disappointed in this book. She writes likes she talks, very rapid and brief. I have a hard time reading books that are set in that tone.

I thought parts of it were funny, but I would much rather watch her on television.

With the unpredictable wit and engaging warmth that has won her a loyal following, and the undeniable star quality that has made her television series an instant hit, Ellen DeGeneres brings her unique comic perspective to the page in a book of simple yet brilliant observations, outrageous dreams, and hilarious life stories.

Ellen is one of the funniest women EVER. This book is a glimpse into her sense of humor and more than a dozen times I found myself cracking up. She's so naturally funny and that comes out perfectly in this book.

All I did was laugh and laugh and laugh. I even took it to work and read it out loud to a coworker on our lunch breaks. Each day, we'd read a new chapter. Whether you're a fan of Ellen, never heard of Ellen, or can't stand Ellen, you've got to read this book. She has such an unconventional way of looking at things and relating a story. She'll keep you laughing for hours.

Ellen has always been a hilarious comedian. In this novel, she has times where she could be very funny, but then many other times it felt like she just rambled on about nonsense. I've always loved Ellen as a stand-up comedian, but I think I'd rather watch that than read her book. I struggled some just to finish this.

I was really looking forward to reading this, but it didn't live up to my expectations. It just wasn't funny. Cute maybe, but not funny. I do like Ellen, so it was disappointing.

I hated this book. I like Ellen a lot, but this was really dumb. I thought there would be some funny stories about her life, but it was all just stuff she made up that wasn't very funny.

I adore Ellen's show...and found a lot of the roots of her comedic monologues and stand up in this book. It's not her very best work, but it's really funny and a lot of fun to read.

Honestly, I hated to send this book off. It is written in true Ellen style and you can hear her voice in your head as you read. I thought the book was charming and entertaining, with that splash of the absurd that makes her standup so funny.

Ellen is the best with humor. She does have a point and does get it across very well. I was smiling through the whole book.

Ellen...what a witty woman! Her book is full of things you never thought of, or at least never thought of them like this! Great read and sooooooo funny.

I love Ellen! This book was an easy read. It was humor cover to cover. I was actually hoping there would be an autobiography of sorts but there wasn't.
