Way up there. Author is witty and insightful.
Pointing out that what's experienced in childhood (in her case celebrity) becomes normal.
Since the author reads the book herself it feels like she's telling you HER story. Plus, unlike some authors who read their own books, she's an actress so is able to do it well.
When she spoke about her pain and how drugs were used to numb it.
Carrie Fisher is one of the great American humorists and her timing and inflections are infinitely better than anything my mind could come up with. Her story is deeply personal and it is somewhere between a treat and an honor to hear her narrate her story.
I have not but I want to hear everything she's done now.
Carrie Fisher's depiction of her father and their relationship was deeply moving. Eddie Fisher didn't deserve her love or forgiveness but she deserved to give it. The same with her building a relationship with Elizabeth Taylor, no one would fault Carrie Fisher for resenting Liz, but the scene where she let's Liz push her into a pool was cathartic and healing for both of the--only in Carrie Fisher's world does this happen!
This is great to listen to in your car or home, but be careful in public because you might alarm strangers by snorting with laughter.
This is a great book! She was open and candid about her, her mother, her father and all that she has gone through with depression. You can tell in some segments that she is a bit tired, then others she is more upbeat in her vocal tone. All in all, it was such a fantastic book that I "liked" her Facebook page and invited her to lunch in July when I go back to California. Whether she takes the invite or not, who knows, but she is the type of personality that I could really connect with. My favorite part is the last, when she speaks of the time she finally had with her father, Eddie Fisher.
