As a child Miranda was clumsy, too tall and didn't quite fit in. As a teenager things got worse. She assumed as an adult everything would fall into place and she would have the grace and poise of a ballerina. She was wrong.
At 6 foot 1, English comedian Miranda Hart doesn't exactly fit in... to well... anything.
Is It Just Me? is a hilarious look at everyday life and the disasters arising from it.
Miranda talks to her teenage self throughout the book and the conversations can be a little strange, but overall very clever. As Miranda says, where is the manual for life when things don't go right? In order to help us all along, Miranda has created what she likes to call the 'Miran-ual'. Such fun! (Those who have seen the tv show will understand this reference).
I will admit I am a fan of Miranda Hart and her tv series Miranda, so had high expectations when I ordered her book. I wasn't disappointed.
Miranda talks us through important issues including the benefits of a stationery cupboard when working as an office manager, tries to explain to her 18 year old self what 'email' is and most importantly teaches us it's imperative you check you're not sending a page to all members of the company instead of just your friend saying 'I've just done a big poo so big it won't flush.'
A hilarious look at life, the complications in it and the best ways to deal with them, all while being able to laugh at yourself.
