    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 19 years old.

    Where does Shockaholic rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really liked this book. It had some interesting stories about her encounters with the Dem senators, her relationship with her dad, and her shock therapy. She had a good reading voice that kept my interest and she has the mouth of a sailor. I was entertained by it and it wasn't too long. I'd recommend this book

    When piano prodigy Norma Herr was healthy, she was the most vibrant personality in the room. But as her schizophrenic episodes became more frequent and more dangerous, she withdrew into a world that neither of her daughters could make any sense of. After being violently attacked for demanding that Norma seek help, Mira Bartok and her sister changed their names and cut off all contact in order to keep themselves safe.

    "Awful book"
    Overall

    This book starts off with the author saying that she was in an accident which made her lose her memory. I'm thinking, how was she able to remember things to put into this book? Right away the credibility was lost. The book was boring and never took direction to a story. The reader was good though. She was the only thing that kept me listening for as long as I did. I ended up only getting to chpt. 5 and then just downloaded another one.
