I guess that Carrie needed money for a new car or a swimmingpool. This is not a good book. The Carrie Fisher story is very interesting but this book should have been edited by a professional editor prior to publication. Some of the annoying parts of the story is that Carrie asks the listener/reader questions only to answer these herself with a wrong answer and she constantly goes "well", "anyway" "but". She does that at least 40 during the book. The story is interesting but Carrie sounds like she has been out on town the night before recording this book. Interesting person, unteresting audiobook.
Although Carrie Fisher's life is pretty interesting I couldn't handle her grating jarring narration .... I should have listened to the sampler I know! Not only that but Fisher starts in the middle of her life and seems to leap frog all over the place. It's hard to get a sense of time and place from her rambling and I'm sad to say I stopped listening 30mins in and can't bear to go back. A disappointment indeed.
I thought the story was okay. I was interested in knowing more about Carrie Fisher since I knew next to nothing. Her narration felt like she was talking to me as if almost in conversation.
although clearly the basis for a show, it reads or sounds like a personal dialogue to the listener. The humour is biting and leaves one unable to prevent spontaneous laughter which isn't always convenient when listening in public places. Superb book.
I don't know.
I really enjoyed this book and the wit Carrie Fisher had.
I loved this audiobook and hearing it from Carrie Fisher herself made it that much more! It's short but sweet, and made me laugh throughout. Definitely worth while and left me feeling like I wish it was longer! Listen to this book!
