    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....

    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....

    No rating. The Introduction nearly did me in, but then the first parts of the book proper didn't seem quite as stupefying so I continued for awhile. Eddie Fisher's mentality has always rather fascinated me. I don't know why, really. Except for the fact, maybe but not only, that he coul...

    Very interesting. ...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Like her half-sister Carrie, Joely is a gifted writer and entertaining personality. And like the late Carrie was, she's a hot mess, but I appreciate that she is self-aware and doesn't mind discussing her flaws as well as her strengths. I've read almost all of the books written by Joely...

    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 ...

    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...

    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....

    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....

    This was an amazing book full of stories about Connie Stevens, Eddie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds, and the whole extended family of Joely Fisher. I really enjoyed reading it. It was well written. ...

    This was a really good book. ...

    This was a bit rambling for my taste.I enjoyed the family photos, though. ...

    This probably is a good book if you are into Hollywood , I am not so I cannot be fair about this book ...

    Enjoyable book. Very much a book of musings including all her family members. The book contains photos. The book was a fast easy read. ...

    Thank you Joely, for sharing your memories of your family, especially Carrie. ...

    3.5 stars. ...

    I just can't say anything nice. A angry and expletive writing Carrie wannabe. ...

    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....

    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....

    No rating. The Introduction nearly did me in, but then the first parts of the book proper didn't seem quite as stupefying so I continued for awhile. Eddie Fisher's mentality has always rather fascinated me. I don't know why, really. Except for the fact, maybe but not only, that he coul...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Like her half-sister Carrie, Joely is a gifted writer and entertaining personality. And like the late Carrie was, she's a hot mess, but I appreciate that she is self-aware and doesn't mind discussing her flaws as well as her strengths. I've read almost all of the books written by Joely...

    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. ...
