Publisher's Summary

Infused with Carrie Fisher’s trademark incisive wit and perfectly poised on the heels of Wishful Drinking's instant New York Times best-selling success, Shockaholic takes listeners on another rollicking ride into her crazy life.

Told with the same intimate style, brutal honesty, and uproarious wisdom that placed Wishful Drinking on the New York Times best-seller 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. Fisher delves into the gritty details that made the movie - and herself - such a phenomenal success, admitting, "It isn’t all sweetness and light sabers."

    Story
    "Carrie Fisher: Truthaholic"
    What did you love best about Shockaholic?

    What's not to love?

    Carrie Fisher, addicted to brutal truth, delivered the fascinating details of her life with her classic self-effacing humor.


    What other book might you compare Shockaholic to and why?

    Well... 'Wishful Drinking' -- Ms. Fisher's memoir that also let's her fans know what her Wonder Bread years were like


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

    Everyone has a 'readervoice' in their head that turns on when reading a book. You have your own style, and it works; besides, what else are you gonna do for a narrator?

    When an author, who is also an actor, reads you their work, you know you're getting it exactly the way they wrote and meant it to be heard.

    So you get the added novelty of filling in a sort of emotional gap between the author and audience.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    You could... in my case we did listen to it from beginning to end while driving (skidding) through a torrential downpour while looking for an open restaurant on the backroads of Virginia one Sunday.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved it.

    Story
    "Carrie Fisher's closet"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a compelling listen with great warmth, sardonic humour, and cutting perceptions about a life observed.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Shockaholic?

    Fisher has the art of observation nailed; of others and herself she can sum up a complex situation in a sentence. The more complex ones, in a word.


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

    The exasperation of her life predicaments.

    Story
    "Funny and light"
    Would you listen to Shockaholic again? Why?

    I would listen to this again. It is a fun book with engaging narration.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love it when Carrie talks about her Mother.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a fun, light book. It gives a light look into the lives of the rich and famous. I laughed outloud many times. Carrie Fisher doesn't take herself too seriously and is able to tease out the absurdity in her life circumstances.
