User reviews about the book
I don’t like that the book has an update, but I’m not informed anywhere at as to what is being updated. I’d like specifics like chapter and specific text changes listed or whatever it is.
Different than her other work. More raw.
This one felt really different from all of her other books. It was a little less funny and a little more raw. And I still loved it. It took me a year to read because I knew once I finished it there would be no more new words from her, but I’m glad I finally read it. Love this woman. RIP, Carrie! We miss you, #SpaceMom

I was a big fan of Carrie Fisher. I am a huge fan of Star Wars:A New Hope. I am also a fan of first person memoirs... until.....this one
I am giving this two stars for the pictures scattered throughout. However, the writing felt forced, in part because of her age at the time. The book was horrible! Not even the pictures saves it. Where is the Carrie Fisher of Postcards from the Edge? Was this bad because she was ill?
These aren’t the diaries you’re looking for
This is just a heads up for Star Wars diehards looking for some real insights or behind-the-scenes stuff from making the first film: look elsewhere. A more apt title for this one would have been Carrison: I Had an Affair With Harrison Ford and I Was Really Insecure About it. If you’re a huge Carrie Fisher fan, then this is probably worth a read for her voice and some personal, emotional memories. But if you’re hoping to learn much about shooting the movie, you’ll be very disappointed.
I rarely read books, but being a Star Wars fan I was excited about this one. It's was nice to hear Carrie's perspective on events and retell memories I would have never known. Carrie will be missed.

Great read. Wonderful insight into Someone who's been in the public eye for 40 years.
Carrie Fisher was Amazing
Carrie Fisher as princess Leia in the Star Wars movies was one of the greatest movie characters ever. I loved princess Leia a lot. She was one of my favorite all time movie characters ever. We will miss Carrie so much.
Carrie Fisher's Princess Diarest
Excellent book, it shows Carrie Fisher's youth and fling with Harrison Ford. I enjoyed every minute and moment of this book. It's sad that this is Carrie Fisher's last book due to her death. I would recommend this book if you idolize Carrie Fisher as the Princess Leia we all came to know and love.

I have always loved the writings of Carrie Fisher. Her untimely passing was sad. However, this book was mostly weird ramblings sprinkled with vague details of her brief fling with Mr. Ford way back when. Honestly, it was kind of boring. Then suddenly the book ended.
The first couple chapters are funny, but then goes downhill in my humble opinion. Not worth the $12.99 price I paid to download.
The Princess Diarist
I loved Wishful Drinking but this one missed the mark except for Carrison!
