From Publishers Weekly

Degeneres continues her year-long domination of all media (following a cross-country stand-up tour, an HBO special, a show-stealing turn in Finding Nemo and the successful launch of her daily talk show in September) with this new humor collection, winningly preserved on audio. The laid-back, observational comedienne's stream-of-conscience musings gain additional zest from her wry and adroit delivery. Some of her funniest material is in throwaway lines, dropped with an easygoing deadpan delivery. ("My favorite exercise is walking a block and a half to the corner store to buy fudge. Then I call a cab to get back home. There's never a need to overdo anything.") Her smart and funny routines point out absurdities in everyday life. ("Batteries are packaged as though the manufacturers never want you to get to them. On the other hand, take a good look at a package of light bulbs. Thin, thin, thin cardboard that's open on both ends.") Whether offering tips to cover social embarrassments or grousing about parallel parking ("What better way to do something you're already a little leery about doing than by doing it backwards?"), Degeneres is a delight.

From AudioFile

Fans of Ellen Degeneres will enjoy this audiobook. Much of the material benefits from her decades of work before live audiences and is delivered in her quiet, hesitant style. Her customary approach suits her well when she's reading selections derived from her live act, but at other times, she stretches a bit in attempting a comic essay or an extended surreal drama in the tradition of the best of radio comedy. At those times, the timing is off, and it seems like she doesn't know when to stop. Thankfully, those moments are rare, and, for the most part, Degeneres's gentle discussions of the inanities of daily life are perfect for quiet, familiar comedy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent livre 23 avril 2009
Par Courtes
En tant que grande fan d'Ellen Degeneres, je me devais d'acheter ce livres avec une petite appréhension quand même car le livre est en anglais. Mais une fois le livre entre mes mains impossible de m'arrêter de lire car il est très facile à comprendre même pour un anglais niveau scolaire. Ellen Degeneres est fidèle à elle même et c'est ce qui fait le charme du livre. Une lecture pour passer un agréable moment n'est jamais de refus.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 the funny thing is 29 mars 2005
Par A. Myriam
ce bouquin (quoique en anglais) est littéralement une perle. Je l'adore. Les phrases sont simples et très imagées à la fois. En le lisant on s'imagine bien dans les situations qu'ellen décrit, ou encore mieux on imagine l'auteur dans ses péripéties (surtout pour la partie the silence is golden). De quoi vous mettre de bonne humeur et vous payer une bonne tranche de rigolade...
A lire absolument!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Audiobook is the way to go! 31 octobre 2003
Par Stephanie - Publié sur
Ellen is once again brilliant with her witty insights and creativity. I bought this as an audiobook on CD, since I saw that it was "read by the author." It was great to hear her stories and joke the way she intended them to be heard! If you're planning on buying this book, audiobook is definitely the way to go!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 ELLEN BOMBECK? 16 novembre 2003
Par D. FOXWORTH - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
WOW! I did not know what to expect from this book when I bought in on AMAZON. I didn't know if it would be political or preachy. But I love Ellen Degeneres so I bought it. IMAGINE MY SURPRISE when this book reminded me of the late, great Erma Bombeck!
By all appearances, Ellen Degeneres is ready to accept the crown for the new queen of written comedy. This fun book reminded me so much of Erma Bombeck... funny, simple circumstances that we can all relate to. Expertly written, THE FUNNY THING IS... had me laughing from cover to cover.
5 stars for sure... my recommendation? BUY IT NOW! You rock, Ellen!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The comedian next door 16 juin 2005
Par Michael J. Mazza - Publié sur
"The Funny Thing Is. . .," by Ellen DeGeneres, is a collection of short comic essays by the popular comedian and television star. The humor in the book is largely grounded in the annoyances and absurdities of everyday life. There are many moments when, as I chuckled at the joke, I also thought, "Yes! She's so right!" Whether mocking power bars, CD packaging, or self-flushing toilets, she effectively skewers these phenomena of the modern condition. Along the way she also makes some gentle but humorous jabs at other celebrities.

I found some of the most entertaining parts of the book to be about the book itself--how and why she wrote it, the process of picking a title, etc. Some standout essays include her series of solutions to everyday problems (like zoning out in the middle of a conversation) and a delightful account of her meeting with God. Along the way Ellen even reveals the secret behind the crop circle phenomenon.

Ellen's humor in this book is good natured and mild mannered. Even when she touches on the current hot political topic of same-sex marriage, she goes for some gentle absurdist humor rather than in-your-face sass. Ellen's voice is like that of a funny next door neighbor who keeps you chuckling as you share a cup of coffee--or maybe a glass of scotch. Although not every joke strikes the target, overall it's an enjoyable and entertaining book by one of show business's most likeable personalities.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The thing is...this one�s FUNNY! 11 novembre 2003
Par Dianna Setterfield - Publié sur
For a knee-slapping good time, I always reach for the tried and true, and Ellen Degeneres has become that for me. I've been a fan of hers way before her popular TV sitcom, and own some of her stand-up comedy as well as her other book, My Point...and I Do Have One. And even though her writing isn't near as funny as her talking, I still find Ellen and anything Ellen-related top-notch comedy and will forever remain a fan.
The Funny Thing Is... is a riot! There is no one who can make me laugh quite like Ellen. And her book, full of short chapters of meandering thoughts about nothing in particular, is Ellen at her best. I can hear her "voice" come off the pages, especially in the chapters about her dad, the tour of her home, and the blurb about the CD packaging. Fans of Ellen will no doubt laugh on every page and will feel that every penny spent on this book is definitely worth it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 ELLEN IS A BORN WRITER-COMEDIAN, AU NATURELLE 11 novembre 2003
Par juanita gutierrez - Publié sur
The first time I saw Ellen, (I mean really first time as she was not my favorite at all due to her lifestyle), was on her movie, "Mr. Wrong." I was laughing alone in my living room just seeing her face and listening at her dialogue. From then on, I surf the net for books or tapes of her and I discovered her website. I tell you, she is the only actress-commedianne, who can make me laugh as I am pretty critical or choosy. Her book,"The Funny Thing Is..." is basically what it says. Her personality comes right through. Her talent in writing coupled with her inviting persona makes this book and all her works worth your time and effort and investment. After my favorite, Carol Burnett in the 70's, Ellen is my "Queen of Comedy of the Millenium". Hurray, Ellen. Keep it up. "The Funny Thing Is....." soars to the heights!
