    Description

    Infused with Carrie Fisher’s trademark incisive wit and perfectly poised on the heels of Wishful Drinking's instant New York Times best-selling success, Shockaholic takes listeners on another rollicking ride into her crazy life.

    Told with the same intimate style, brutal honesty, and uproarious wisdom that placed Wishful Drinking on the New York Times best-seller list for months, Shockaholic is the juicy account of Carrie Fisher’s life, focusing more on the Star Wars years and dishing about the various Hollywood relationships she’s formed since she was chosen to play Princess Leia at only 19 years old. Fisher delves into the gritty details that made the movie - and herself - such a phenomenal success, admitting, "It isn’t all sweetness and light sabers."

    I am getting very attached to Carrie

    Carrie Fisher's writing is disturbing and entertaining. I feel kind of protective of her as she is so raw and uncensored. Sometimes she goes too far for me as she can get off on strange tangents but I value her perspective and silliness. When she talks about her father and the way she took care of him when he needed her was surprising and profound to me...
    I actually feel attached to her as she is getting to be like an old friend who you want to look out for as she sounds fragile sometimes and I don't want to lose her....

    I'd Rather Drink...

    Well, I'm a little let-down. Carrie Fisher is definitely funny, and I love her ease at throwing out wit, but parts of this book were a bit too serious, which was not what I was looking for in her book. I still liked it, but I wanted to be crying from laughing too hard like I did with Wishful Drinking, but this one didn't do it for me. I'm still glad I listened to it though.

    One of the Best Carrie Fisher Books Ever

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

    I've always liked Fisher's caustic wit and candid honesty about her life, Shockaholic has to be one of her most candid and funny books ever. I'd reccomend it for someone who needed their spirits lifted.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Insights into Ted Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor, and Michael Jackson.

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

    One of the best.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Fisher and Elizabeth Taylor reconsiled.

    Any additional comments?

    This is a good book for people suffering depression, it shows that one can over come their mental illnesses if one is willing to take risks and take control of their lives.

    Disappointing after Wishful Drinking

    What would have made Shockaholic better?

    Stronger storyline, more to share. This story was very thin, dull and at times defensive.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Carrie Fisher again?

    Maybe. She's obviously funny and a good writer.

    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The author/narrator is very low key. Not energetic about anything. Felt like she wasn't enthusiastic about this book at all.

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Carrie Fisher is very funny, and honest. I will give her that. There just wasn't much of interest here. Most of her story was told in Wishful Drinking. I almost feel like she put out this book just to make a buck.

    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed Wishful Drinking and was looking forward to more. This wasn't it. Very little story. Also Fisher has become very mushy. It actually made me gag a few times, how she tried to tie everything up with a bow. Very disappointing, especially the defense of Michael Jackson, and the long second half of the book, mostly about her father's death. Dull.

    Carrie Fisher: Truthaholic

    What did you love best about Shockaholic?

    What's not to love?

    Carrie Fisher, addicted to brutal truth, delivered the fascinating details of her life with her classic self-effacing humor.

    What other book might you compare Shockaholic to and why?

    Well... 'Wishful Drinking' -- Ms. Fisher's memoir that also let's her fans know what her Wonder Bread years were like

    What does Carrie Fisher bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Everyone has a 'readervoice' in their head that turns on when reading a book. You have your own style, and it works; besides, what else are you gonna do for a narrator?

    When an author, who is also an actor, reads you their work, you know you're getting it exactly the way they wrote and meant it to be heard.

    So you get the added novelty of filling in a sort of emotional gap between the author and audience.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    You could... in my case we did listen to it from beginning to end while driving (skidding) through a torrential downpour while looking for an open restaurant on the backroads of Virginia one Sunday.

    Any additional comments?

    I loved it.

    Funny and light

    Would you listen to Shockaholic again? Why?

    I would listen to this again. It is a fun book with engaging narration.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love it when Carrie talks about her Mother.

    Any additional comments?

    This is a fun, light book. It gives a light look into the lives of the rich and famous. I laughed outloud many times. Carrie Fisher doesn't take herself too seriously and is able to tease out the absurdity in her life circumstances.

    Short but incredibly poignant

    Cried several times while reading this. I laughed a lot, out loud, but I definitely cried real tears at several points. Although I have never dealt with depression myself, her explanation of her struggles to overcome it touched me deeply. Her matter-of-fact assessment that her obituary would not fail to feature a picture of her young self in that silly Princess Leia wig also made me cry, now that we have seen her prediction come true. And the most surprising thing to me was her tender, funny, warm, intimate portrayal of her father, Eddie Fisher and their final reconciliation. Her description of losing him brought back recent losses I have experienced, and I cried so hard I actually had to stop the car.

    What a wonderful book, what a wonderful gift to the world she was.

    Shockaholic

    I have listened to several books by Ms. Fisher lately. I find her ability to talk about such dark and hard things with comedy and candor surprisingly refreshing. You don’t get the sense that she lives in self pity, which would be easy seeing what her childhood was like. She also gives off a sense of non-judgementalness, which surprises me very much. This book relays some very personal things and I really appreciate her reading them. If it had been someone else, I’m not sure how appropriate that would feel, since it is so personal. I’m sorry that she has left us, but grateful for her heart and the desire she had to share her anecdotes and humor with us all.

    allein ihre Stimme zu hören ist ein Erlebnis

    Carrie Fisher erzählt aus ihrem Leben und aus dem der Menschen die sie kannte, die ihr nahe standen. das lässt einen wünschen, sie hätte noch viel mehr Zeit gehabt für weitere Erlebnisse und Anekdoten.
