I also didn t buy into the love story I didn t really get why Bridget liked him other than he was there But what else than a shallow love interest did I expect from Bridget I m glad that the Prid Let s review this book the Bridget wayReading goal for 2011 35 books not bad books actually read 38 v.

Bridget Jones s Diary Bridget Jones, 1 , Helen FieldingBridget Jones s Diary is a 1996 novel by Helen Fielding Written in the form of a personal diary, the novel chronicles a year in the life of Bridget Jones, a thirty something single working woman living in London She writes about her career, self image, vices, family, friends, and romantic relationships 2005 1384 280 9643622932 20 2001 2001 2001 97 26 218,929,795 2004 20161990 1996 1999 Of course the book is all about Bridget s feelings and emotions.
it s a diary I think anyone, man or woman, would quietly admit to themselves the selfish thoughts they have when something terrible happens to someone they know, Bridget is just doing that in her diary The book provides an excellent outlet for anyone woman who feels the pressures of impending singledom, rubbish careers and crazy parents and it makes the reader see that IT S OK NOT TO BE PERFECT We love Bridget cos she is fun, honest and finds true love even though she is shock horror average and has arse the size of Brazil Obviously not for everyone but one of the best reads I have come across and a must for any single girl.
This certainly wasn t a novel but, what s worse, it wasn t even a credible diary Who records their mishaps while cooking and running late in their preparations Perhaps if this were written in the phone texting age, I could imagine someone constantly chronicling their every move, no matter how pressing the situation or how inane and empty the commentary, but as it is, this book serves as a frightening precursor to a new generation of books with no established atmosphere, characters, dialogue, or insight Fielding would be better off looking into a crystal ball and telling people their fortunes than writing another non novel.
I didn t enjoy this book in an ironic way, or in a it s good even though , or I can t believe I do but I perversely can t help it or any other angled, roundabout, halfway indirect from behind kind of way No I sat on my couch and wolfed this thing down in one sitting while laughing my ass off.
I read it last spring when I decided I was curious about what chick lit was, so that I could form an opinion and generally improve my likelihood of passing as a somewhat informed member of civilization This was not the only chick lit book I attempted I tried Bergdorf Blondes , the first few pages of which made me want to stab my eyes out with a rusty fork well, maybe it made mewant to stab someone else s eyes out Plum Sykes springs to mind , but my point is that it wasn t just bad but act Meet Bridget Jones ASomething Singleton Who Is Certain She Would Have All The Answers If She Could A LosePoundsb Stop Smokingc Develop Inner PoiseLbs How Is It Possible To Put OnPounds In The Middle Of The Night Could Flesh Have Somehow Solidified Becoming Denser And Heavier Repulsive, Horrifying Notion , Alcohol UnitsExcellent , CigarettesPoor But Will Give Up Totally Tomorrow , Number Of Correct Lottery NumbersBetter, But Nevertheless Useless Bridget Jones Diary Is The Devastatingly Self Aware, Laugh Out Loud Daily Chronicle Of Bridget S Permanent, Doomed Quest For Self Improvement A Year In Which She Resolves To Reduce The Circumference Of Each Thigh ByInches, Visit The Gym Three Times A Week Not Just To Buy A Sandwich, Form A Functional Relationship With A Responsible Adult, And Learn To Program The VCROver The Course Of The Year, Bridget Loses A Total OfPounds But Gains A Total OfShe Remains, However, Optimistic Through It All, Bridget Will Have You Helpless With Laughter, And Like Millions Of Readers The World Round You Ll Find Yourself Shouting, Bridget Jones Is Me
