Name of Book: Bridget Jones’s Diary
Author: Helen Fielding
Bridget Jones First came to public attention in Helen Fielding's hugely popular fictional diary in the Independent newspaper. In this novel based on her creation, Fielding offers us a brilliantly funny picaresque tale: a year in the life of a girl determined to 'have it all' - the second she's finished this cigarette and phoned Shazzer.
What I Liked: What a great story of a slightly older single gal trying to make life better for herself while still dealing with meddlesome mothers, pretentious men, and other irritating people. I also love how it was written just like a journal.
What I Didn’t Like: Sometimes, the abbreviations in the journal writing got a little annoying. Also, when it is ever a good idea to get involved with the boss?
Overall Thoughts: I thought this story was really funny and definitely enjoyable. When you read the book, try not to compare it to the movie. They are both great, but you must read the book as a book, not a movie.
Final Rating: Gold Star
Recommended? Absolutely! Especially if you are single.
