I loved having Carrie read her memoir, including having her daughter read her diary entries. I normally am not a fan of audiobooks, but this one was well worth it in my opinion. While it only showed a very small portion of her life, it was so wonderful to hear it in her own words!
It's hard to make an objective comment about this book when listening to the author read audiobook is like hearing Carrie Fisher speak from beyond the grave.
This is not the best of her memoirs, it focuses on a small slice of her life, and not one she seems all that proud of. It left me feeling sad.
The diary entries were too numerous and felt like a tangent from the rest of the book rather than the centrepiece. That being said, these samples of Fisher's early writing show just how talented she really was at putting words together. That they were written by an angst ridden twenty year old was very clear. I wish my journals of my young adult years were so poetic.
How sadly ironic that I finished listening to this just days before her death. It is somewhat revealing of Ms. Fisher though I felt the portion spent on discussing her relationship with Harrison Ford went on a bit too long for my liking. Nevertheless, I'm glad that I was able to inquire my ear towards her life. She will be missed.
