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.
She sounded bored through most of it, which seemed to make me, in turn, bored with her.
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.
There wasn't any story. It was a collection of essays.
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.
