Very interesting account of the filming of the first Star Wars movie. Fisher reveals an affair with Harrison Ford she terms, "Carrison". Her daughter, Billie Lourde reads her personal diary from when she was a mere 20 years old and then she follows up with her own recollections. The book goes on to detail her favorite experiences with fans and her life as Princess Leia.
Absolutely fantastic and I love that it Carrie Fisher and her Daughter who are the narrators
It was amazing hearing her voice and hearing her story. Made me a little sad because it reminded me how much I miss her. She was one of my heroes.
I'm not a Star Wars fan but I have always appreciated the excitement and enthusiasm with the folks that love this movie.
That being said this was a pretty funny book. I'd recommend it especially on audio. Carrie herself really made me laugh out loud with her explanations and descriptions on the set and in her life after Star Wars. It was pleasant to hear someone so real and positive that handled the deck she was dealt.
as a star wars and carrie fisher fan. i adore this book. its such a shame Carrie is no longer with us.
It was a wonderful listen. She was hilarious and goes 'behind the scenes' inside her head.
This is a wonderful book. Carrie Fisher is an accomplished author and this is her best. More than a dozen times I was struck by how much I wanted to tell her how much I enjoyed it and how much I felt like she and I would enjoy each other's company. Surely the same thing thought by thousands of fans but it's a feeling I knew she would understand, despite it's banality. This book showcases her sparkling, dry wit and amazing self clarity. I know the latter came at the great price of spending most of her life working to achieve it and proves how totally worthwhile that effort is. This book is not one to leave you crying because she has passed but joyous that she lived and that she shared. I highly recommend it to anyone, Star Wars fan or not. Carrie Fisher is the articulate poster child for those of us who overshare, perhaps in part, out of a mad hope that we are not alone. And, as she's proved many times, in many ways - we're not. Thank you, Carrie.
Excellent entertaining read. Absolutely love any narration done by the author...a lot of warmth, passion and intensity well projected by the author.
Enjoyed it very much! Especially hearing it from Carrie's own voice! I'm so sorry she passed.. but what a treasure we now have.
Well done! A wonderful peek into Carrie Fisher's life during and post Star Wars. I especially love that she narrates it!
The only way to consume this book is by Carrie Fisher reading it to you. She is incredibly funny and wise and hearing her words in her voice made this audiobook a must listen.
