I wish I was a better writer, because I would love to write a proper letter of adoration to Mindy and this book. As it is, I’m not really that great a writer so I’ll just talk about some of the reasons I loved this book.
I’ve been a fan on Mindy’s since The Office. I know, just like everyone else. But I appreciate her humor and her work that she’s done on TV and in the writer’s room. I love her anecdotes, her voice, and her self-deprecation. I think that The Mindy Project is fantastic, and has surpassed New Girl as my favorite Tuesday night comedy. (I also think that New Girl is not that great this season but that’s neither here nor there.)
As someone who was once a teenage girl, I identify with a lot of her childhood stories. But if you’re not a fan of her work and her humor, this book is not for you. It worked for me because I could hear her reading the book to me in my head and it was great. I spent a good deal of it laughing out loud to the irritation of my boyfriend, but overall I loved it and would recommend.
