Audio Book Summary

The instant New York Times bestseller from “queen of the geeks” Felicia Day, You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is a “relentlessly funny and surprisingly inspirational” (Forbes) memoir about her unusual upbringing, her rise to internet stardom, and embracing her weirdness to find her place in the world.

When Felicia Day was a girl, all she wanted was to connect with other kids (desperately). Growing up in the Deep South, where she was “home-schooled for hippie reasons,” she looked online to find her tribe. The Internet was in its infancy and she became an early adopter at every stage of its growth—finding joy and unlikely friendships in the emerging digital world. Her relative isolation meant that she could pursue passions like gaming, calculus, and 1930’s detective novels without shame. Because she had no idea how “uncool” she really was.

But if it hadn’t been for her strange background—the awkwardness continued when she started college at sixteen, with Mom driving her to campus every day—she might never have had the naïve confidence to forge her own path. Like when she graduated as valedictorian with a math degree and then headed to Hollywood to pursue a career in acting despite having zero contacts. Or when she tired of being typecast as the crazy cat-lady secretary and decided to create her own web series before people in show business understood that online video could be more than just cats chasing laser pointers.

Felicia’s rags-to-riches rise to Internet fame launched her career as one of the most influen­tial creators in new media. Ever candid, she opens up about the rough patches along the way, recounting battles with writer’s block, a full-blown gaming addiction, severe anxiety, and depression—and how she reinvented herself when overachieving became overwhelming.

Showcasing Felicia’s “engaging and often hilarious voice” (USA TODAY), You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is proof that everyone should celebrate what makes them different and be brave enough to share it with the world, because anything is possible now—even for a digital misfit.

    I absolutely enjoyed every second from the touching foreword to the last quirky word. Felicia is hilarious, extremely intelligent, and riveting. I love how she wasn't robotic in the reading of her book and put some character into it. ..much more enjoyable way to consume an audiobook. :)

    Absolutely loved it! Felicia is quirky, incredibly intelligent, and inspiring. Once I started the book, I couldn't stop until I was done. It put me in a great mood and filled me with the hope of finding a little niche I belong in someday too!

    I loved this book. I particularly enjoyed hearing Felicia do the narration of her own story. She was able to pull me in as though she was speaking to me personally. I only wish there were more! I'm going to have to binge watch everything she's done on YouTube next!

    I loved this book. I only knew her from Supernatural and was happy to hear of all her other work. I loved hearing the book as if it were a real story she was telling just to me (cause we're homies like that) If you like nerd stuff, or Supernatural, or stories of women in business you will be entertained by this book.

    This was a very entertaining and relatable story. I got a lot of insight into Felicia Day's life and analyses. Having Felicia Day narrate the story made it even better and I felt as if she was sitting in front of me telling me her story.

    Relatable, interesting, and funny. I caught myself laughing out loud quite often at her quirky commentary about her life. When I read memoirs usually I skip all the beginning childhood stuff to get to the part of their life I am familiar with. Not this time. I listened and was captivated the entire time as Felicia seamlessly moved through every phase of her life. It was cool. I dug it. Felicia Day speaks to my soul.
