    Not enough The book was an ode to Carrie, but it told me nothing new. I was surprised at how Connie Stevens was portrayed. You know she loved her but.... ...

    Way too scattered for me. There was no rhyme or reason to the progression of chapters/section/musings and I ended up reading bits and pieces. And I'm really sorry as I've been looking forward to this since I heard about it last summer. Guess I prefer my memoirs to a little more linear....

    It was okay. There?s some interesting family history here, and she does have a fascinating family, but the writing is pretty scattered and unorganized. One moment she?s sharing a memory from when she was 5 years old and the next she?s talking about something that happened last we...

    This was an interesting look into the lives of the "rich" and famous. Joely Fisher is the daughter of Connie Stevens and Eddie Fisher. Therefore, she is the half sister of Carrie Fisher. She lived next door to Carrie,Todd and Debbie Reynolds Fisher. She was in show business from the ti...

    She's no Carrie, that's for sure. You can tell she tries to be a clever wordsmith like her sister but it comes off as phony at times...trying to hard and just not authentic. Her politics are annoying and she's just like all those other Hollywood types...nothing original about her. I ...

    Joely Fisher writes a candid and humorous, book recalling her memories and musings from having experience a life in the ?Fisher? spotlight. She has the ability to arouse deep rooted emotional response from her readers. I definitely connected with her as she took me on her painfully...

    Found the book interesting in learning more about Connie Stevens. However , Joely isn't Carrie and she tries awfully hard to be in this book. Starting a book out with f'ing this and that to me is not a quality author. She constantly is writing about being broke and needing money. I bel...

    I have always liked Joely's work and this was a decent autobiography however, I almost wish I hadn't read it. I thought she came across as a whiny, narcissistic, over-spender whose goal is to live off the connection to her more famous relatives. The "poor me" vibe was annoying at best....

    Not so much Not so much Carrie Fisher as she professes to be. Shallow writing from a person of little depth. Lots of attempts to name drop that are tone deaf. Feels like I just paid to read the diary of an entitled high school student. ...
