Inhaltsangabe

A collection of humorous autobiographical essays by the Academy Award-nominated actress and star of Up in the Air and Pitch Perfect.

"I'm excited to publish my first book, and because I get uncomfortable when people have high expectations, I'd like to use this opportunity to showcase my ineptitude and pettiness and the frequency with which I embarrass myself. And while many of my female inspirations who have become authors are incredibly well educated and accomplished comedy writers, I'm very, very funny on Twitter, according to BuzzFeed and my mom, so I feel like this is a great idea. Quick question: Are run-on sentences still frowned upon? Wait, is ending a sentence with a preposition still frowned upon? I mean, upon frowned? Dammit!" (Anna Kendrick)

Anna Kendrick's autobiographical collection of essays amusingly recounts memorable moments throughout her life, from her middle-class upbringing in New England to the blockbuster movies that have made her one of Hollywood's most popular actresses today. Expanding upon the witty and ironic dispatches for which she is known, Anna Kendrick's essays offer her one-of-a-kind commentary on the absurdities she's experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Kritikerstimmen

"Actress Anna Kendrick narrates her wry and witty collection of autobiographical essays about growing up in Portland, Maine.... Her quick pace, sometimes sarcastic tone, and unmistakably familiar voice enhance funny and shrewd reflections on her ordinary girl's life." ( AudioFile)

I need more

I love Anna Kendrick's humour and her weirdo vibes, but it ended too quickly! Honestly, very refreshing and amusing, one of the few autobiographies I'll listen to a second and maybe even a third time just because it's funny.

How can someone not love her???

I mean I loved Anna Kendrick before I listened to her reading her book. But afterwards how can someone not love her? She is honest about herself! I love that and wish more people were like her. Celebrity or not. I can listen to that book over and over. And still find it amusing and entertaining and also a little bit comforting. So go and buy that book. You won't regret it!

Fast and funny, thoughtful

I reckon this book is ideally suited for her fans. It gives a genuine, not embellished, unapologetic insight to Anna Kendrick. As a girl, I think you will find an ally in her. As a boy, you will be forced to take the female perspective and learn a lot about women. I learned about women and show biz, and this part was great. I wondered how a 20 something could write memoirs. I am glad she did. I would be afraid that after 20 years in this business, she would have no longer be able to write the book as she did. The book is recorded just like you imagine Anna Kendrick in an interview: Fast and witty. So fast, as a matter of fact, that it is the first book ever I listened to slowed down to 0.75x. It was just too hard for me at normal speed.

Great insight into the adorable Anna Kendrick

Sounds like a couch interview with Anna Kendrick. Funny and relaxed. Interesting stories and thoughts about present and past Anna.

Funny as f**k!

Listening to this book in public probably made me look like an idiot laughing out loud while sitting alone with my headphones on! I love it! So relatable by the way ;-)

Extrem unterhaltsam und interessant!

Halten Sie die Hörbuch-Ausgabe von Scrappy Little Nobody für besser als das Buch?

Ich habe sowohl das Buch als auch das Hörbuch von Scrappy Little Nobody. Das Hörbuch hat sich auf jeden Fall gelohnt. Das Buch an sich ist schon sehr lustig, aber mit Anna's Betonungen wird es noch besser.

Welcher Moment von Scrappy Little Nobody ist Ihnen besonders im Gedächtnis geblieben?

Sehr viele kleine Momente.
"Burn in hell Tory. I KNOW IT WAS YOU"... vielleicht ganz besonders.

Wenn Sie dieses Hörbuch verfilmen könnten wie würde der Slogan dazu lauten?

Everything you already suspected or did not suspect at all about Anna has now been made official in a hilarious way!
oder als Zitat aus dem Buch:
"Here's the thing about crazy: It. Wants. Out."

Insgesamt eher langweilig

Intelligente Witze, gut gelesen, aber insgesamt keine besonders spannende oder bereichernde Autobiographie. Es gibt bessere.
