I'm really kind of surprised that so many people did not love this! I think Carrie Fisher is absolutely hilarious, in a sarcastic, self-deprecating, absurdist sort of way. I LOLed through practically the entire thing, which, granted, it's a super short book, but still. Maybe that's the thing that people didn't like? That it was so short? Or that she's talking about her bipolar...ity(?) and drug abuse and alcoholism with an abundance of humor instead of being all serious and mopey about it? I mean, it is based on her comedy show. I dunno. I thought it was great. I'll totally read her next one when it comes out later this year.
