The Princess Diarist Review


  • When Carrie Fisher recently discovered the journals she kept during the filming of the first Star Wars movie, she was astonished to see what they had preserved—plaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naiveté, and a vulnerability that she barely recognized. Today, her fame as an author, actress, and pop-culture icon is indisputable, but in 1977, Carrie Fisher was just a teenager with an all-consuming crush on her costar, Harrison Ford.
  • With these excerpts from her handwritten notebooks, The Princess Diarist is Fisher’s intimate and revealing recollection of what happened on one of the most famous film sets of all time—and what developed behind the scenes.  Fisher also ponders the joys and insanity of celebrity, and the absurdity of a life spawned by Hollywood royalty, only to be surpassed by her own outer-space royalty. Laugh-out-loud hilarious and endlessly quotable, The Princess Diarist brims with the candor and introspection of a diary while offering shrewd insight into the type of stardom that few will ever experience.

“This book was a good read into Carrie’s mind at the time of filming the first Star Wars movie. A little glimpse into Harrison at the time as well. I would recommend it to anyone who is a true fan of the Leia and Han love story.” By Natasha Rios

“I am so sorry that Carrie Fisher has left this world and will never read this and future reviews of her last book. I loved this trip down memory lane regarding the making of Star Wars. It is interesting to note the feelings of a nineteen year old girl being launched into stardom and her struggle to find her true self.” By Karen
