Summary:

Infused with Carrie Fisher’s trademark incisive wit and perfectly poised on the heels of Wishful Drinking’s instant New York Times bestselling success, Shockaholic takes listeners on another rollicking ride into her crazy life.

Told with the same intimate style, brutal honesty, and uproarious wisdom that placed Wishful Drinking on the New York Times bestseller list for months, Shockaholic is the juicy account of Carrie Fisher’s life, focusing more on the Star Wars years and dishing about the various Hollywood relationships she’s formed since she was chosen to play Princess Leia at only nineteen years old. Fisher delves into the gritty details that made the movie—and herself—such a phenomenal success, admitting “It isn’t all sweetness and light sabers.”

    I enjoy Carrie Fisher's sarcasm and honesty in dealing with her depression. I enjoyed Wishful Drinking more, as it was a bit funnier, but I still recommend highly.

    Written with humor and intelligence, but also vulnerability - Carrie Fisher's second memoir is a great read and personal look into a pop culture icon's life and all that it entails. Star Wars fans will love her tidbits about her iconic character - Princesd Leia, as well as great nuggets from the films. Old film lovers will enjoy her stories about her mother, Oscar nominated star Debbie Reynolds, and anyone who has ever suffered from mental illness will surely have a huge takeaway from this with the frank and detailed discussions about a topic many of us pretend to ignore. I adrored this book and I adore Ms. Fisher.
