This book talks more about Carrie Fisher’s life as she was filming Star Wars. I listened to the audiobook because it was narrated by Carrie and her daughter Billie and I think it made the reading experience so much better! She has a way of narrating the book and making it so funny and witty! I loved her writing! This is my first novel of hers that I’ve read and I have Wishful Drinking so I’m definitely going to continue with that.
But it was hard for me to read this because I was so sad about everything. It broke my heart.
So she goes into detail about what lead to her affair with Harrison, and about how it lasted a few months. I was kind of disturbed because Carrie was basically given alcohol and Harrison ended up “saving her” from the producers or something since they were getting her drunk. I felt so bad for her in that situation. Also her thoughts on Harrison during the affair broke my heart as well. Spoiler alert but she was so in love with him!! It made me so sad because she loved him and he just…ugh!!
But her entries for the time of filming and the affair were just amazing. I loved that her daughter narrated it. I had never heard them before and it was interesting seeing her perspective on everything that happened during filming.
I think my favorite reading about her thoughts on doing conventions! And how she called herself a stripper basically! It was great!! Another favorite part of mine was hearing about her audition for Star Wars. It was cool and funny! She mentioned she had told it a few times before but I had never heard it so I loved it!
I did feel like she rambled a lot towards the end but I enjoyed it because she has such funny thoughts and experiences! Overall I loved this book! I love her writing, her spunk, her stories; it’s a wonderful experience in and of itself! Highly recommend!
