‘Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?’ by Mindy Kaling [ REVIEW ]


One of my goals for 2015 is to get back to my roots and read more books. As the great Frederick Douglass said, ‘Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.’ Books are a passion – nay, an obsession of mine and always have been. I grew up in the library and my parents fostered my love of reading and learning. With books I have lived a thousand lives, found myself absorbed in different worlds, and learned immensely more than I could have otherwise. So put up your feet, grab a good paperback and let’s get reading!

‘Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)’ by Mindy Kaling sounds at times like a conversation you might have with a friend who happens to be an actress, writer, director, and executive producer. While laid back and at hilarious, it manages to gives a lot of information about her as well as share insight into who she might really be. Kaling shares her personal opinions about certain matters which, although I didn’t agree with all of them, I really appreciate. It’s nice to have a strong woman who is confident and unapologetic about what she believes in.

The book is a collection of individual chapters or essays, only loosely connected at the best of times. She talks about college, comedy, romance (or lack thereof), eating, fashion, shopping, friends, jobs, and mistakes she’s made. You see Mindy- the self-assured, quirky, and unabashedly feminine jokester who embraces her flaws, embarrassments, and insecurities with an appealing frankness. She doesn’t make any excuses for herself which is refreshing. In general, this book is a breath of fresh air because it is funny, sarcastic and honest.
