This is a wonderful book. Carrie Fisher is an accomplished author and this is her best. More than a dozen times I was struck by how much I wanted to tell her how much I enjoyed it and how much I felt like she and I would enjoy each other's company. Surely the same thing thought by thousands of fans but it's a feeling I knew she would understand, despite it's banality. This book showcases her sparkling, dry wit and amazing self clarity. I know the latter came at the great price of spending most of her life working to achieve it and proves how totally worthwhile that effort is. This book is not one to leave you crying because she has passed but joyous that she lived and that she shared. I highly recommend it to anyone, Star Wars fan or not. Carrie Fisher is the articulate poster child for those of us who overshare, perhaps in part, out of a mad hope that we are not alone. And, as she's proved many times, in many ways - we're not. Thank you, Carrie.
