Shockaholic by Carrie Fisher | Book Review

In Fisher’s second memoir, she dives into her unconventional relationship with her father, her friendships with Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor, and her continuing battle with manic depression and drug addiction. I absolutely adored learning more about Fisher’s life, and her writing continues to be hilarious, warm, and raunchy in this novel. I love how she really didn’t care what people thought about her, and that even though she battled so much, she found the humor in even the darkest situations.

Just like in Wishful Drinking, her writing jumps back and forth between stories, but I feel like that was the way her brain worked. Her thoughts were fluid and abrupt, and I loved experiencing the journey of her life (and mind). I also especially adored the photographs she sprinkled throughout the book, which always included darkly humorous captions beneath them. If you’re a Carrie Fisher fan, this is a must-read.
