In Wishful Drinking, Carrie Fisher tells the true and intoxicating story of her life with inimitable wit. Born to celebrity parents, she was picked to play a princess in a little movie called Star Wars when only 19 years old. "But it isn't all sweetness and light sabers."

A rambling pleasure

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 12-03-09

Listening to this book is like sitting down for a few drinks with Carrie Fisher and getting all the gossip. She doesn't spare any details, either - but nor does Carrie start at the beginning. The prose is like a stream of consciousness ramble, but it works well. Her random one-liners pop up where you least expect them. I would certainly recommend this book to prospective listeners.
