Hi all,

If you're a fan of the late Carrie Fisher, you probably already own this book. For those who don't have it, the Kindle version of 'Shockaholic' has dropped to 99p over on Amazon.

Here's the blurb:

"Bad news . . . for anyone who thought Carrie Fisher had finally stopped talking about herself. This time, the electro-convulsive shock therapy she's been undergoing is threatening to wipe out (what's left of) her memory.

But get ready for a shock of your own. Not only doesn't she mind paying the second electric bill, she loves the high-voltage treatments. But before she can truly commit herself to it, she'd better get some of those more nagging memories of hers on paper.

It's been a roller coaster of a few years for Carrie since her Tony- and Emmy-nominated, one-woman Broadway show and New York Times bestselling book Wishful Drinking. She not only lost her beloved father, but also her once-upon-a-very-brief-time stepmother, Elizabeth Tayloras well as over forty pounds of unwanted flesh,, all the while staying sober and sane-ish. And she wants to tell you, dear reader, all about it. She wants you to someday be able to remind her how Elizabeth Taylor settles a score, how she and Michael Jackson became friends, or how she ended up sparring with Ted Kennedy on a dinner date. And she especially wants to preserve her memories of Eddie Fisher.

Yes, of course, Shockaholic is laugh-out-loud funny, acerbic, and witty as hell. But it also reveals a new side of Carrie Fisher that may even bring a pleasant shock your way: it is contemplative, vulnerable, and ultimately quite tender."

Hope this is of some use to someone...

I could have sworn I saw a thread on 'Postcards From The Edge' on here that had expired, and when I looked on Amazon the price was like £7.99. Having a quick look now, it's 99p and 'Wishful Drinking' is also 99p. Thanks for the heads up on 'Postcards...'

​Which of the 3 is the better read?

Don't know. I went for Postcards from the edge on the grounds it was made into a film. I'm afraid I tried to read the Princess Diarist recently, and found rather self-indulgent and a bit drawn out.

Thank you. Bought both as Postcards from the Edge was on my wishlist. Pity Amazon don't let you know when something on your wish list is reduced!
