My Review | The Princess Diarist

The Princess DiaristThe Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

After Carrie Fisher died, almost immediately after, I watched a documentary about Carrie and her mom, “Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds.” Both women died before the film premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. That documentary, which has a 100% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, made me a fan of Carrie. I hadn’t really developed an opinion about her before that. A year later we all saw her final turn as Leia in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” I’ve always known about her comic wit and writing abilities, so I’ve been on the lookout for one of her many semi-autobiographical novels and “The Princess Diarist” was the first book to come into view. It’s about her romance with Harrison Ford during the making of the first Star Wars movie. I liked the intro and the summary, but wasn’t enamored with the diary entries from 1976 in the middle, which makes up the bulk of the book. Still looking forward to reading her other books.
