Description

In a stunning literary debut, Carrie Fisher chronicles the excruciatingly funny adventures of Suzanne Vale, young film star and drug addict, who survives a rehab clinic only to rejoin the equally harrowing world of Hollywood. Out there on the edge, despair flips into hilarity, and we're left laughing as Suzanne struggles to come to terms with her various fantasylands. Carrie Fisher's reading of her first novel evokes the deliciously irreverent humor that formed the lens through which she looked at life in the '80s - stardom, drugs, success, sex, and insecurity.

Critiques

"Carrie's book is savagely funny and savagely revealing. It makes Moby Dick seem like a big, fat, dumb book." (Steve Martin)

This was filled with quotes that resonated with me

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, especially to those who deal with depression like I do. Some of the things the main character thought, were scarily similar to mine even though I've never done drugs much less been confined in Rehab.

What other book might you compare Postcards from the Edge to and why?

None, really. I haven't read or listened to anything like this before. But, if we're going to include movies, this reminded me somewhat of Trainspotting. I don't know why, it just did.

Have you listened to any of Carrie Fisher’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was the first audiobook I've listened to by Carrie Fisher. However, after this, I'm planning to get Shockaholic and Wishful Drinking next.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

There's already a film based on this book. I'm planning to watch it, too. But tag line? Maybe "A visa for happiness. A lifetime pass for sadness." since that was my favorite line in the book and the one I identified most with.

Any additional comments?

This was short, and I listened to it at work to drown out the annoying sounds of my co-workers. I loved how Carrie Fisher narrated the entire thing, and my favorite part was when Suzanne was in rehab and how she described and interacted with the other patients. Some parts of this book made me laugh because of Carrie's dry, sarcastic wit. Other parts made me unutterably sad and melancholy because it described a lot of the feelings and thoughts I've had over the years during my lowest points.

I miss you, Carrie.

Carrie Fisher was a national treasure. She will be missed by her legion of fans. If you haven't read any of her books, do yourself a favor and start with this one. As a writer she was funny & insightful.

Vintage Carrie

Would you consider the audio edition of Postcards from the Edge to be better than the print version?
No, but equally good

Would you be willing to try another book from Carrie Fisher? Why or why not?
Absolutely--I have and will!

What does Carrie Fisher bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Because she's an actress, she can bring the story to life with her vocal inflections. She perhaps reads a tad too fast here, which was sometimes less than optimal given how much went on in the emotional life of her character.

If you could take any character from Postcards from the Edge out to dinner, who would it be and why?
Carrie herself, of course Dinah, and her mother (and grandmother) if at all possible!

Any additional comments?
I do wish Carrie Fisher's voice had remained this smooth and normal-sounding over the years! Though she was pretty much back to normal and fantastic as a reader by the time she recorded the excellent Shockaholic.

Postmodern autobiography?

I am impressed with how this is structured and what pieces of life she chose from bits of her daily life. It's definitely a window.

This book is not really fiction.

Carrie Fisher incessantly offers reasons why she is no hero, not even of Hollywood. She mocks her own celebrity as if to put boundaries up against it in pursuit of getting a real life, and she becomes the rebel Princess by accident.

Sorry, Carrie. You are a legend despite yourself.

Eloquent writing and great narration

Carrie Fisher writes eloquently about the human thought process and human interaction. She has a way of putting thoughts into words that makes you question why you didn't realize these profound truths on your own, in a wonderfully insightful way. I enjoyed the plot of the first half of the book more than the second half but I was reading more for the writing and less for the storyline.
