An interesting read, although not quite as meaty as I would have liked. Fisher is a natural and excellent storyteller, and her reading in the audio version is outstanding. My only complaint is that I feel like she leans into her examples too heavily. In particular, where she quotes from her journals and tells convention stories, I think the narrative would have been tighter with two or three fewer instances.

This is a fun, and quick, read. It's fun reminiscing about the "good old days" of Star Wars and reading about it through the lens of Carrie Fisher. Her take on the comic-con scene was fun too. The downside of the book is that it makes me miss her ... even if I never knew her.

Started out not liking it... ended up loving it. Saw a lot of myself in my 20's in it.

Although I think that Carrie really didn’t have mental illness, I think that she just took drugs to often when she was young Jundt into a bad mental health condition. Then, instead of quitting recreational drugs, she merely mixed in psychiatric drugs. This in a lack of self-care led to her early death, and surely there is a lesson for all of us to learn from the wisdom of Carrie Fisher. I’m not sure she was actually bipolar. I think it was a side effect of recreational drugs, which she never did quit for any longer than 11 months of her life when they claim that she was sober and this was the happiest time of her life, but if she was so happy at that time, why did she relapse?… (mere)
