More Bridget Jones's Diary (book) reviews
review by . June 29, 2010
Bridget Jones's Diary is basically what it sounds like - the diary of Bridget, a 30-something Singleton on a mission of self-improvement.  While trying to quit smoking, lose weight, and develop inner poise, she runs into all kinds of problems - problems with men and dating, problems with friends and family, but mostly problems caused by her own flighty personality.      I thought Bridget Jones's Diary started off slow, focused on what she was eating, her flirtations …

A fun read and charming main character but so superficial that it ranks as a well crafted guilty pleasure.

A "must" summertime time read. Thoroughly enjoyable from beginning to end.

Ok, honesty moment, I read this because of the movie :P But as always, book beats movie! Fun and light if you want it to be, but like Man-in-the-Mirror, makes you want to look at yourself as potential to change.

About this book

Wiki

Bridget Jones's Diary is a 1996 novel by Helen Fielding. It chronicles the life of Bridget Jones, a thirty-something single woman living in London. In this book she turns 33 on March 21. Surrounded by a surrogate "urban family" of friends Sharon (Shazzer), Jude, and Tom, she tries to make sense of life and love in the 1990s.

Bridget is a "Singleton" employed in the publishing industry. She struggles, often humorously and endearingly, to make sense of her romantic entanglement with her boss Daniel Cleaver, and later with the "top-notch human rights barrister" Mark Darcy. One concept introduced and often revisited in both Bridget Jones's Diary and The Edge of Reason is that of "fuckwittage": the emotional turmoil intentionally wreaked by men who fall anywhere along the spectrum of womanizers to commitment-phobics. Fuckwittage is no stranger to Bridget, Shazzer (a strident feminist), Jude (a highly successful business woman who throughout the novel is on-again-off-again with Vile Richard), and the gay Tom (who must deal with the fuckwittage present in his relationship with Pretentious Jerome).

Bridget's family consists of an overconfident mother who seems always to be finding new adventures and projects, a much more down-to-earth father (though he is sometimes driven into uncharacteristically unstable states of mind by his wife), and a brother, Jamie, a more peripheral character. Bridget often visits her parents, as well as her parents' ...
