Read The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher Online

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....

The Princess Diarist Reviews

  • Matt

    In the final of her short memoirs, Carrie Fisher turns her focus onto the inevitable Star Wars franchise and her memories from being on the set in 1976. As the book opens, Fisher lists a number of memorable occurrences from the year, all of which made the filming of a low-budget space fantasy film pale in comparison, or so it would seem. While she does not mention it explicitly, years of excessive drug use and electro-convulsive therapy (ECT) surely scrambled some of the memories and would make ...more

    DNF @ 48%

    (but not a DNF like you think - no rating because i didn't finish it)

    reading this book made me miss carrie fisher so much. it reads like you asked her to talk about her affair with harrison ford and she obliged, unfiltered, for hours. which is both wonderful and not exactly conducive to a book. but i miss her, so it works out.

    i DNFed this when 2016-carrie fisher stopped and 1976-carrie fisher began. i'd read adult carrie fisher write about anything, but reading the diaries of a 19-year-

    - normalize mental illness and its treatment

    - take life a little less seriously

    - destroy a fascist regime

    Last year before her passing, a number of Goodreads friends of mine posted that they were reading a new memoir in diary format written by Carrie Fisher. Upon finding out that Fisher had already authored four books and one memoir, I had my curiosity piqued. Having watched the original Star Wars trilogy so many times that I have the credits and most lines memorized, I was giddy to get my hands on Fisher's insightful, first hand look at the what went on behind the scenes of the most iconic movie in ...more

    This book is effectively divided into three sections:

    1. 2016 Carrie Fisher talks about starting out as an actress, getting cast as Princess Leia and her affair with Harrison Ford.

    2. 1976 Carrie Fisher's diary entries made during her affair with Harrison Ford.

    3. 2016 Carrie Fisher talks about her relationship with Harrison Ford post-affair and her struggles with being Leia over the course of the next 40 years, particularly when it comes to interacting with fans.

    I loved all three sections, fran

    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

    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

    Princess Leia was the only princess I looked up to and wished to be growing up. Princess Leia was tough, smart, beautiful, with a fantastic hairstyle and a Jedi for a brother. Also, she had the best looking scoundrel in space, Han Solo. What little girl didn't want to be her? So when this came out, and I heard what it was about, I knew I had to read it.

    Carrie Fisher is a sarcastic, funny and honest writer, not hesitating to write about herself in a not so pretty light. I admire that and so I wi

    I act like someone in a bomb shelter trying to raise everyone’s spirits.

    I put off reading this for about a year, because I am unsure about celebrity memoirs. Of course, I was pleasantly surprised by The Princess Diarist, an audio collab read by Fisher with diary excerpts by daughter Billie Lourd. Fisher possessed great skills of observation and is refreshingly witty. Even as a teenager, Carrie was aware of inequities in her role in Star Wars as compared to her male costars:
