Princess Diarist was the last of Carrie Fisher's books prior to her passing away. I was excited as it was to be her Star Wars behind the scenes tales. I wouldn't quite call it that. While it revolves around Star Wars it is not a behind the scenes book. It talks little about the making of the movies or even what happened during the making of the movies. She does speak quite frankly and at length about her affair with Harrison Ford while filming Star Wars. I have to admit I was looking forward to what she had to say on the subject once I heard she'd be opening up on the subject in this book. And it was fun to hear the details. But that is about it as behind the scenes notes.
Don't take that to mean this isn't a good book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and it is an easy read. It is my first book of hers but I'm sure the style seen here is similar to that in her others. She is very open, honest, self depreciating, and funny. I find her honesty refreshing and enlightening. It is nice to see her thoughts and I think many will either agree with her or understand where she comes from.
