The Princess Diarist

The Princess Diarist is Carrie Fishers intimate, hilarious and revealing recollection of what happened behind the scenes on one of the most famous film sets of all time, the first Star Wars movie. When Carrie Fisher recently discovered the journals she kept during the filming of the first Star Wars movie, she was astonished to see what they had preservedplaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naivet, and a vulnerability that she barely recognized. Today, her fame as an author, actress, and pop-culture icon is indisputable, but in 1977, Carrie Fisher was just a (sort-of) regular teenager. With these excerpts from her handwritten notebooks, The Princess Diarist is Fishers intimate and revealing recollection of what happened on one of the most famous film sets of all timeand what developed behind the scenes. And today, as she reprises her most iconic role for the latest Star Wars trilogy, Fisher also ponders the joys and insanity of celebrity, and the absurdity of a life spawned by Hollywood royalty, only to be surpassed by her own outer-space royalty. Laugh-out-loud hilarious and endlessly quotable, The Princess Diarist brims with the candor and introspection of a diary while offering shrewd insight into the type of stardom that few will ever experience....

    Excellent reading!

    IN MEMORIAM

    It was a shock when the news of Carrie Fisher’s demise came out, especially when her movie career was getting a deserved second air in the new Star Wars trilogy (sequel to the events of the original trilogy).

    Carrie Fisher did all her scenes for the incoming Episode VIII, so we’ll be able to see her one last time, and…

    …due the advance in special effects, I have no doubt that we’ll have plenty enough of Princess Leia, even in the eventual Episode IX.

    It was a bitte

  • Trina (Between Chapters)

    I liked that this book had a central theme, since most non-fiction tends to be a more sprawling narrative. It all revolves around Carrie's experience with Star Wars and what becoming and being knwon as Princess Leai meant to her. I listened to the audiobook and Carrie read it herself, which was kind of a heartbreaking experience because she often ponders what her legacy after her death will be. I, like so many, grew up with Star Wars so I really enjoyed hearing this story.

    I'm not usually one to read memoirs or even a slice of a tiny and specific autobiography like this, but I was tempted both because of my sadness for her death and the fact that it was nominated for the Hugos this year.

    That being said, I wasn't prepared for how much I enjoyed her quirky and excellent and witty writing, her unabashedly honest reveal about her on-set fling with Harrison Ford, or the nearly unbearably sweet and conflicted original diary, itself.

    Don't go into this expecting a behind

    Take a highly intelligent, anxiety prone girl, mix in the life changing, world wide phenomena that is Star Wars, and add a dash of handsome, introverted, and married leading man and you have: The Princess Diarist.

    This is not really about Star Wars as much as it is about obsession and Carrie trying to figure out who she is. Though there are some tidbits sprinkled throughout: "And as much as I may have joked about Star Wars over the years, I liked that I was in those films. Particularly as the onl

  • Jenny (Reading Envy)

    I was not a huge Carrie Fisher or Star Wars fan, in fact I only just watched Star Wars for the first time the year Episode VII came out. I didn't even know that Debbie Reynolds was her mother until she passed away.

    That said, I think Carrie is an excellent memoirist. She is direct and honest and very much herself, and in audio, it's fantastic. Carrie came across her diaries from the early Star Wars days, where she was the "typical" late teens early 20s angsty idealistic woman. She was very hones

    I love, love, love Carrie Fisher. Not Pricess Leia - although she has her moments, but the 'real' Carrie Fisher. The one who bared her soul in her autobiographical novels and biographical books, her one woman stream of consciousness shows and in the HBO documentary about her and her mother.

    If you are looking for a Hollywood tell all, or a behind the scenes on the shooting of Star Wars this isn't the book. This is the story of a 19 year old high school drop out who ended up being in the BIGGEST



    Indiana: I never meant to hurt you.

    Marion: I was a child. I was in love. It was wrong and you knew it!

    Indiana: You knew what you were doing.

    Marion: Now I do. This is my place. Get out!


    She was a 19 year old keeping a secret; Ford was married at the time and thinking, like all young women, that this man you are sleeping with really cares about you. She honestly addresses the 'location' aspect of filming and her understanding that she wasn't Miss Right she was Miss Right Now. Still 40 years later her words from that time are painful to read.

    What makes this a great book is that Carrie Fisher, God rest her soul, was really funny. ...more

  • April (Aprilius Maximus)

    Y'all, I can't even talk about this right now.

  • Mercedes

    I love Carrie Fisher. I've read all her books and really enjoyed them. This book however, was a disappointment. Much of it was pointless 'filler' that was completely unnecessary to the story Carrie was trying to tell.

    For instance, the whole first chapter...'It was 1976'...is just a listing of all the things that were happening in the year 1976. Now, I get 3 or 4, hell, maybe even 5 or 6 examples so she can set the scene, but as it went on and on it became very clear that she wasn't going to have
