Bridget Jones Diary

Bridget Jones is a quirky, humorous character, who magnifies the stereotypes of women in today's society through her obsession over her weight, her diet, and her outfits, and is constantly plagued by bad hair days. Helen Fielding has told a witty and entertaining story through diary entries of her colorful character Bridget, who repeatedly gets caught up in sticky situations and never fails to make a fool of herself.  I would recommend this book, and its sequel, to anyone in search of a light and clever read.  


  1. I loved that book, too! I hadn't read it until the movie came out and then I made a point of reading it before I saw the movie. I was pleasantly surprised by the movie, but then again, I love Renee Zellweger so I guess I shouldn't have been too surprised that I would like it!

  2. Finished the sequel recently, thanks for sharing it with me sis! I'm feeling a little less hatred of men now that it's over and I've had some time to forget about it. And every other word I think about isn't "bloody" anymore. *LAUGH*
