A Sunday Times Number One Bestseller Miranda Hart will carry you along with the sheer force of her charm, bumbling cheer and charisma. - Sunday ExpressWell hello to you dear 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 reader) 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.

The comedian is in conversation with her 18-year-old self on topics such as music, hobbies, office life, beauty. Christmas, etc. I like her sense of humour.
Review by Anne_Green
Miranda is the type of comedian you either love or hate. Fortunately I love her - she had me laughing out loud lots of times, which is rare (for me). Her humour isn't subtle, or clever or even especially witty. It's just straight out funny. I think part of it's her voice which, even saying "is it just me?" which obviously she does a number of times, has me wanting to say no, I feel just the same!" I listened to this as an audio book, which she narrates, so got the benefit of her voice both auditorily and literarily so to speak. She's just a very funny person, but one you feel you'd love to have as a friend as well.
