Well hello to you dear audiobook browser. Now I have your attention it would be rude if I didn't tell you a little about my literary feast.
So, here is the thing: is it just me or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination and sometimes unexplained nudity, that accompanied childhood and adolescence?
Does everybody struggle with the hazards that accompany, say, sitting elegantly on a bar stool; using chopsticks; pretending to understand the bank crisis; pedicures - surely it's plain wrong for a stranger to fondle your feet? Or is it just me? I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences - from school days to life as an office temp - and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you too dear listener) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path. Because frankly where is the manual? The much needed manual to life. Well, fret not, for this is my attempt at one and let's call it, because it's fun, a Miran-ual.
I thank you.

Review by -Eva-
Miranda Hart talking to her younger self (and to the reader) about her various quirks, about being a bit of a buffoon, and about the importance of acting like a child, regardless of what other people might think. I'm very fond of Miranda Hart as a comedian and parts of this book did have me laughing. However, for most of it she gets much too cutesy for my taste and frankly just waffles on. Also, the dialogue between the 18-year-old Miranda and the 38-year-old Miranda feels forced. She is a lovely character, though, and even though I could rarely say "no" when she asks if it's "just her," I still enjoyed the view into her character, but you do need to know that she is capable of being properly funny (see her TV-show "Miranda"), which isn't really discernible from this book.
