    Story
    (136)

    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.

    Would you try another book from Carrie Fisher and/or Carrie Fisher?

    I have been a huge fan of Carrie Fisher and "Wishful Drinking" (The book and the one-woman show) so I was excited to listen to this one. It was such a disappointment. It was essentially a afterthought - should not pass as it's own book - maybe as an extra few chapters that should have been cut from "Wishful Drinking." She spends more time talking about Michael Jackson than she does most anything else. The only touching moments were discussing her relationship with her father, which she doesn't go into much in WD. Overall it was bland, boring, and I found myself impatient for it to end. A very sad thing for a fan like me to say.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    She sounded bored through most of it, which seemed to make me, in turn, bored with her.

    After a decade spent in isolation in the Ugandan jungles thinking about stuff, David Cross has written his first book. Known for roles on the small screen such as "never-nude" Tobias Funke on Arrested Development and the role of "David" in Mr. Show with Bob And David, as well as a hugely successful stand-up routine full of sharp-tongued rants and rages, Cross has carved out his place in American comedy.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, the audiobook had many additions to the book that were hilarious, but it gets really preachy, so I'd have to recommend it to someone very open minded.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    There wasn't any story. It was a collection of essays.


    What does David Cross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    LOTS of things. He ad-libbed a whole lot, and there were TONS of changes (an entire chapter was put to music, special guest stars etc) that made it SO much better than the book.
