Rapid Fire Review: The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher

The Princess DiaristThe Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5/5
Won't lie I didn't love this one as much as I wanted to and thought I would. I have read all of her other works and have adored them all. I just found this one a little rambling and all over the place. Now its not all disappointing, there are some very wise observations and some wickedly funny commentary. Also it was interesting reading about her thoughts and feelings during the filming of Star Wars. It also made me quite sad as I always felt a wee connection to her and I never got the chance to meet her. I almost had the chance but I chickened out as I didn't want to have to pay for her autograph and felt silly just going to say hi. I really should have because I wanted to thank her for being so open about her mental health issues and well just for showing us how a real princess should be. That's right kick some imperial ass and trade witty repartee with a scruffy looking nerd herder. That is a princess I can get behind
I did really enjoy her take on Comic-Cons etc and her enjoyment (and hell I can imagine how she really told some of the stories about them to her friends and family) of all of the fans she has met over the years of doing lap dances (Yup you have to read, so you can truly understand)

You will be missed Ms Fisher

"Please!" I interrupted. "You don't have to apologize for my looking older to your daughter after forty years. I look older to me, too, and I don't apologize to myself-though perhaps I should."
