Description

The last book from beloved Hollywood icon Carrie Fisher, The Princess Diarist is an 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 discovered the journals she kept during the filming of the first Star Wars movie, she was astonished to see what they had preserved—plaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naiveté, and a vulnerability that she barely recognized. Before her passing, her fame as an author, actress, and pop-culture icon was indisputable, but in 1977, Carrie Fisher was just a teenager with an all-consuming crush on her costar, Harrison Ford. 

With these excerpts from her handwritten notebooks, The Princess Diarist is Fisher’s intimate and revealing recollection of what happened on one of the most famous film sets of all time—and what developed behind the scenes. 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 one of Hollywood's most beloved stars.

    I was really looking forward to reading what happened behind the scenes of one of my most memorable childhood movies. The workings behind what you see on the screen has always intrigued me and I know what I would do if I could do it over. Anyway, this book IMO is zzzzzzzzzzzz. The only behind the scenes is a mention of an affair between Fisher & Ford. There is 100 pages of a young girls ramblings (Carrie's diary I'm assuming) of her feelings and poems. I didn't even read them fully as I found myself skimming these pages hoping for more. After her diary entries she then proceeds to go into fans 'rants'. There is nothing of note for behind the scenes. I was hoping for anecdotes between cast and crew, her experiences with Lucas, the workings of a movie set,etc. I have about 50 pages left in the book but wanted to post this review in hopes of saving the next person money. If you're really interested in the 'affair' portion I'm sure someone will post that chapter online somewhere soon. If you never read it you aren't missing anything. I do not recommend this book.
