    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 a...

    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 m...

    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...

    For me, reading this book was exactly like watching a season of "Ally McBeal" - when I laughed, I laughed outloud and thoroughly enjoyed myself. And occasionally I did allow myself to care who ends up with whom. But I held a grudge against the main character throughout for being so lud...

    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 ...

    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'...

    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!) ...

    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 hersel...

    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...

    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 ...

    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 Jon...

    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 -l...

    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 Bchamel Test. No, not the Bechdel Test, that's different. And not the sauce, either. The Bchamel Test is a very simply checklist to see if you should ...

    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 (including Bridget Jones's Diary ) But wait a second! Who can call Bri...

    Fan, Fan, Fan. Leyendo el libro te das cuenta de cmo las pelculas (que me encantan) han eliminado el 90% de stira que hay en la historia de Birdget. Qu es lo que pasa cuando la sociedad te dice que para ser una mujer moderna tienes que ser sofisticada y tener xito en la vi...

    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 centr...

    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 tha...

    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...

    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 wit...

    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...

    Might be more 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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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 ha...

    "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...

    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 more !! ...

    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...
