Ok, I may have a thing for female comedians and I'm definitely a sucker for buying their autobiographies. I consider this to be a great thing. I'm still working on branching out from my main genre of "fantasy" and some women are making it easy on me.
To begin, I first saw Mindy Kaling on the Office like most people but found I couldn't relate to her character, Kelly Kapoor. Flash forward two or three years. One of my girlfriends came over and told me about this hilarious show "The Mindy Project". I had my doubts but after watching three or four episodes I decided that I was definitely hooked. Earlier in 2013, I decided to read her autobiography.
Mindy has a refreshingly honest attitude towards herself and her expectations from life. Her book didn't stand out as anything too different from the sea of other biographies but I enjoyed learning more about this actress and have a whole new appreciation of her ability to make fun of herself. If you're looking for a nice, easy read that gets you to laugh while learning more about a celebrity you admire then I would recommend it!
7/10 - Generic, but an enjoyable read.
