Do You Mind If I Cancel? (Things That Still Annoy Me) Reviews

  • Nathalia

    I loved this book so much. The short essays are moving, poignant, delightfully funny and have changed my opinion on stream of consciousness writing (for the better). The agony of finding yourself when you are a hesitant, gay, teenage boy were profoundly nuanced and honest. An easy and lovely read.

  • Tyler Goodson

    I knew this would be funny, but it's also personal and honest and moving. Janetti manages to be vicious AND likable, even while chastising you for not knowing what Norma Rae is (I knew that one!). These essays are equal parts insight and acid, and you will love every second of them.

  • Moira

    GARY! I’ve been so looking forward to this book and was delighted that I wasn’t let down. This was hands down one of the funniest collection of essays I’ve read in awhile. There are certain chapters I can see reading over and over again. The perfect book to read on an otherwise cold and blah Tuesday.

  • Suzanne

    So funny! This book is my type of humor for sure. I was highly entertained and loved every minute of it. Time flew right back while I was reading. I hope he continues writing more books like these!

    I laughed and even cried in parts at Gary Janetti's new book Do You Mind If I Cancel. Some of you may know Gary because he puts up hysterical memes on Instagram of Prince George. Some of you may know Gary because he is married to the amazing stylist Brad from the Rachel Zoe show and soon after his own TV show. Last but not least you may know Gary because he is an amazing television writer. No matter how you know Gary you should definitely pick up Do You Mind If I Cancel. You will laugh and you m

    I laughed and even cried in parts at Gary Janetti's new book Do You Mind If I Cancel. Some of you may know Gary because he puts up hysterical memes on Instagram of Prince George. Some of you may know Gary because he is married to the amazing stylist Brad from the Rachel Zoe show and soon after his own TV show. Last but not least you may know Gary because he is an amazing television writer. No matter how you know Gary you should definitely pick up Do You Mind If I Cancel. You will laugh and you may cry (no? just me?).

    I loved seeing pieces of Gary's life unfold in front of me. I felt like I was sitting down to dinner with an old friend.

    Such a fun read.

    Thank you Gary and Flatiron Books for my gifted copy of Do You Mind If I Cancel. All opinions are my own.

    Author Gary Janetti has been many things: Executive producer of hit tv shows (Will and Grace), writer for the tv show Family Guy and an actor. Add a hilarious author to his list. This book "Do You Mind If I Cancel?: (Things That Still Annoy Me) is filled with short chapters/essays about his life that will crack up even the oldest curmudgeon (is there a female word for curmeudgeon?) Anyway, this book is a irreverent, hilarious coming of age book...also a coming out book.

    3.5/5

    I was in the mood for a lighthearted, funny read and this one hit the spot. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Gary Janetti, he has been a long-time writer for Family Guy as well as one of the executive producers of Will & Grace. The book does not cover his time on either one of these shows, but rather his arduous and unlikely path to success.

    Janetti provides a humorous and brutally honest insight into his journey to become a successful writer in Hollywood.

The book does not cover his time on either one of these shows, but rather his arduous and unlikely path to success.

    Janetti provides a humorous and brutally honest insight into his journey to become a successful writer in Hollywood. You learn about his obsession with day-time soap operas, and his odd jobs at grocery stores, restaurants, and hotels in order to stay afloat. I literally found myself laughing out loud at times, especially during his stint at Bennigan's.

    The writing is simple and easy to follow, which made for a very quick read. I would've preferred for his stories to be in chronological order because at times I wasn't sure when something occurred. At the same time, I feel like if I were to get into the inner workings of Janetti's mind, it would flow the exact same way his stories did (in the best possible way)!

    Thanks to Flatiron books and Goodreads for an advanced copy of this book in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own.

    Read in prepub. Due out 10/22/19.

    I loved this book. I laughed out loud at every single chapter. But that's not why I loved it. I loved it because Janetti captures a bittersweet nostalgia (albeit couched in his very dry wit and "over-it" attitude) that anyone who has ever been an exile in their own life can relate to.

    Recommended for all readers.

    Some of you may know Gary Janetti from his hilarious Instagram account where Prince William is featured as his “bitchy tyrant”. He he. I saw a post the other day that read “My tombstone will read he died scrolling Instagram.” I about died of laughter on that one. Needless to say, the guy is a funny dude.

    Some of you may know Gary Janetti from his hilarious Instagram account where Prince William is featured as his “bitchy tyrant”. He he. I saw a post the other day that read “My tombstone will read he died scrolling Instagram.” I about died of laughter on that one. Needless to say, the guy is a funny dude. He’s also been a writer for the show Family Guy for years and was an executive producer on Will and Grace. Although his career got off to a slow start (as you’ll soon see in the book) the journey seems to have been well worth it.

    Janetti’s book takes us on his personal, honest and humorous journey through the pre-digital age. How in the world did we survive without our phones??!! Maybe its my age but wow could I relate. I loved his stories about his obsessions with day time soaps, countless mindless jobs to pay the bills and most of all his imaginary Oscar speech.

    I urge pick this one up when it comes out on October 22nd. I hope it makes you smile.

    An enjoyable book. Gary’s anecdotes from various times in his life were sometimes humorous, sometimes not, but insightful.
