  • Description

    The Princess Diarist is Carrie Fisher’s 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.   *PEOPLE Magazine Best Book of Fall 2016  *New York Times Bestseller *

    Star Wars VIII: The Last Jedi, 
    featuring Carrie Fisher, is scheduled for release on December 15, 2017.  Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds debuted on HBO in January 2017. 


    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 preserved—plaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naiveté, 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 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 the type of stardom that few will ever experience.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      This book helps get a better understanding of the life that Carrie fisher lived at a young age and the juicy details between her and Harrison Fords affair. This was a book I could not put down I just needed to now how things happened and what's happening next. I suggest this book to anyone who is looking for a funny/serious book to read
