One thought on “Bridget Jones's Diary

  1. Prepare yourselves, it s about to get personal up in here.So, I ve never seen the movie of Bridget Jones s Diary, so I thought I would read the highly acclaimed book before doing so and, to my great surprise, I ended up hating almost everything about it I 100% understand why people like it it s funny and relatable and reminiscent of the great decade that was the 90 s, but because of a purely personal problem, this book made me feel like garbage and therefore made me absolutely loathe my reading [...]

  2. 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 [...]

  3. Let s review this book the Bridget way Reading goal for 2011 35 books not bad Books actually read 38 v.g No of chick lits supposed to be read in a year 1 fair No of chick lits actually read 2 includingBridget Jones s Diary But wait a second Who can call Bridget Jones s Diary a chick lit That would be an insult to such a master piece No, Bridget is no wannabe chick lit heroine and this book is certainly no trashy best seller Bridget Jones s Diary is definitely a piece of literature It is well wri [...]

  4. I m torn as to how to rate this On the one hand, Fielding nails the humor Humor is very hard to capture in literature and I often found myself smiling or chuckling But when I wasn t, I was exasperated with Bridget Jones Fielding nails her too Why do women insist on being proud of being so shallow Idiotic, blind about themselves and their lives, and obsessed with all the wrong things in life I didn t sympathize with Bridget at all, nor did I really care about the holes she dug herself into This b [...]

  5. Get up and make sensible plan Will work hard on journal paper during day, then go for well earned picnic at open air movie theatre Tonight s movie Bridget Jones s Diary v good Make salmon florentine for picnic, will eat half there and save rest for tomorrow Feel v organized.Hard to concentrate thoughts on journal paper After lunch go back to bed, need to recover energy Wake up again mid afternoon Decide to postpone working on paper until tomorrow, have to tidy apartment since guests coming for p [...]

  6. Read as part of The Infinite Variety Reading Challenge, based on the BBC s Big Read Poll of 2003.Let me introduce you to the B chamel Test No, not the Bechdel Test, that s different And not the sauce, either.The B chamel Test is a very simply checklist to see if you should read a book or simply set fire to it Here s how it works 1 Is There A Gay Best Friend 2 Are There Moments When The Main Character Would, If The Book Was Set In The Current Time Period, Do Something Awkward and Say, Awkward Out [...]

  7. 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 [...]

  8. Gawd, this book was criminally hilarious I sat in the doctor s office waiting room literally snorting into my Nine West handbag there s something really metal about being a minimum wage worker who chooses to buy labels instead of food as I cradled my Kobo in my lap, with Bridget Jones and her life of ridiculous shenanigans all over the black and white screen Needless to say, the people I waited with were unimpressed They are probably not the first to wonder why someone like me would carry anythi [...]

  9. Watched and loved the movie first, and that s what s stuck unfortunately So I d say this is 3.5 stars from me Of course it would ve been a different experience if I d read it first, and I can totally see why the movie focused on Daniel the cad What would the movie have been without the fist fight in the snow The diary entries witty, the protagonist funny and cheeky She s a ninny isn t she This is a fun book, a romp really, and all the fun with the self deprecation that is Bridget It s a fun rem [...]

  11. Unpopular opinion time I just can t make myself like Bridget Jones I wasn t huge on the movie, but hoped maybe the book would be a bit better Nope Bridget is way too crass shallow and her diary is mostly self loathing thoughts WHY do I want to put myself through this The only reason I gave it an extra star is because it s so British AND I can t bring myself to give any Pride Prejudice retelling 1 star I m glad so many people love these books movies, but I m just not a fan.

  12. I must confess I watched the Bridget Jones films before reading the books.This was light hearted amusement for me.I could relate to a lot of Bridget s thoughts and habits, but I wouldn t say it was groundbreaking If anything it was probably a bit too close to home for me to really enjoy I prefer books with escapism or surrealism.But if you are looking for something that won t strain your brain too much and will offer you a few chuckles then this book is all you need.Still gonna read the other t [...]

  13. I read this book a number of years ago after it was recommended to me by a friend and ever since that moment I have been wishing that I could go back in time and smack her over the head and tell her to take the book and shove it.I found the book to be deeply irritating with a central character that was nether funny nor likable In any way shape or form In fact Bridget Jones has got to be one of the worst literary characters I have ever come across as she is in turns a moaning, whiny, boring, inan [...]

  14. This was SUCH a FUN book to read I read it in December when family holiday shit and self worth is really taking a beating So to pick up this book and read about her holiday get togethers and her weight and smoking issues and family issues and how she can make an ass out of herself in such a grand grand manner.well it was just what I needed To be able to sympathise and laugh at the same time Priceless

  15. I am not Bridget Jones My classmate beside me opened a cool notebook with a red leather jacket and a heart sculpted in the middle I asked her what she s writing in her notebook while my professor keep on talking about carbohydrates, ruminants, and whatever scientific words with lysis in the end Because everyone is bored and so do I, I kept on sneaking her notebook and she kept on hiding it Sorry, playing inside the classroom is illegal but my rules, my rules So I asked here face to face, as if I [...]

  16. I usually end up liking the books better than their film counterparts, but it worked the other way around for Bridget Jones s Diary for me.While I loved the movie, this book was just a bit blah Bridget irritated me with her whining and her desperation for a man I hope that I won t be anything like that by the time that I m nearing the big 3 0 The diary format of the writing annoyed me, but that might just be because I prefer books that are descriptive and have wonderful narrative Daniel Cleaver [...]

  17. Might be of a 3.5 stars I read this because I am COMPLETELY OBSESSED with the movies and decided I should probably read the book if I want to be a tRuE fAn and this was very cute Bridget s voice was hiiiiiilarious and the boys were mega dreamy However, I did find myself to be a bit underwhelmed by this just because I kept comparing it to the movie So maybe read this before seeing the movie if you can help it Other than that though mega cute

  18. Skirt is indisputably absent Is skirt off sick Despite what most of my friends think about me, I m a sucker for good romantic comedies Sure, they ll tell you that I mostly end up calling everything cheesy and roll my eyes but that s a coping mechanism and they just don t get me, alright One of my favourite chick flicks is, you guessed it, Bridget Jones s Diary I love how light hearted it feels, how relatable and funny Bridget is, I love the London vibe the movie gives off, the Pride and Prejudic [...]

  19. Brought it by just looking at the word Diary Saw it on BBC s 100 books list and blessed the day I bought it.Got to read it at the last day of the year and had resolutions of keeping a diary at last What can be said

  20. I think it goes without saying that this is a very funny and witty book, and the main character Bridget Jones is one of the most relatable characters I ve read about I especially liked her intros to every diary entry where we get to know how much she weighs, how many calories she s had during the day, how many cigarettes she has smoken, etc It was fantastic and actually made me feel quite good about myself, because apparently I m not the only one with those kind of insecurities I have watched th [...]

  21. What a depressingly bad book Helen Fielding is one of the funniest writers in Britain, says Nick Hornby on the front cover, and Bridget Jones is a creation of comic genius What in earth Why is he saying that Did he want to sleep with her Same goes for Salman Rushdie A brilliant comic creation, blurbs Salman Even men will laugh Oh, Salman Why is he saying that Surely, if a book is genuinely funny, then people will laugh irrespective of their gender Obviously Even men will laugh What kind of bulls [...]

  22. Judging by some of the reviews, I think its quite possible that it might be slighlty lost on the audience if not a Brit or spent time there The book was such a success because she nailed the English sensibility, particularly, but not exclusivley female Everyone either has an element of Bridget in them or knows someone like that We do whinge, worry about the size of our arses, have to put up with naf jumpers for Christmas, occasionaly about having no friends and found alone eaten by alsations or [...]

  23. Okay I learned a few things from this book and I didn t think I would For me, Ive been doing some pretty heavy reading over the past few weeks SWIMMING by Hershon, THE AMBER SPYGLASS bu Pullman I wanted a break from all that was hard I wanted to simply read and laugh a little and enjoy a lot I picked BRIDGET JONES DIARY because I hoped to read and not engage my intellect too much DurrI really, really liked this book, for a number of reasons Characters that I could relate to weighing oneself ever [...]

  24. There isn t anything I could possibly say about Bridget Jones s Diary which wasn t already said, so I will keep it simple Bridget Jones takes the phenomenon known as chick lit to a completely different level If you have no idea who Bridget Jones is, nor you know nothing about the premise of the book movie, that means you re just an alien spy, sent on Earth with genocide and forced colonization purposes, so you don t even deserve to know All I can say is and I guess I m speaking for the entire fe [...]

  25. Relectura n indefinido exist a la vida antes de y yo he perdido la cuenta de las veces que lo he le do Bridget Jones es m s simple que el mecanismo de un chupete y en su cerebro no caben m s inseguridades locuras tonter as pero siempre siempre siempre me parto de la risa con ella, siempre me alegra el d a y es un descanso para mi cabeza volver a pasar un rato con ella No puedo evitarlo, me encanta este libro, es mi Dirty dancing literario Mark Darcy, marry meeeeeeeeeee

  26. Didn t know what to expect when picked the book up on spec Ended up laughing out loud so often, my husband allowed me to read bits to him and he laughed just as much Now, this was a while ago, of course

  27. Obwohl dieses Buch schon 20 Jahre alt ist, konnte es mich echt begeistern Mit sehr viel Witz, Realit t und Sarkasmus konnte es mich f r sich gewinnen Die Story ist sehr nahe am Buch, was ich gut fand, da ich zuerst den Film gesehen habe Super Buch f r Single Ladies, die auch mal ber sich selbst lachen k nnen Girlpower

  28. This was an interesting book I like when you are able to see something right from the narrators point of view I think some things in the book were a little hard to understand I think that all the words should have been written out, I know it s supposed to be a Diary, but I think that everyone writes differently This made it a little hard to follow at times.

  29. I couldn t help myself I needed to give this one a reread re listen whatever the audio book equivalent of reread is This book reminds me so strongly of Christmas and reading it feels like a hug.
