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 book is the perfect example of why I don t read chick lit I just don t relate to this definition of what women are More than that, I m embarrassed by it.I also didn t buy into the love story I didn t really get why Bridget liked him other than he was there But what else than a shallow love interest did I expect from Bridget I m glad that the Pride and Prejudice undertones were not blatant or I might of cried that Fielding so disgraced the characters I liked the way Rene 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, o This certainly wasn t a n Read as part of The Infinite Variety Reading Challenge, based on the BBC s Big Read Poll of

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

Needless to say, the people I waited with were unimpressed They are probably not the first to wonder why someone like me would carry anything as elegant as Nine West.Sometimes I wonder that, too Honestly I took off a star because I was highly disappointed with the rushed and nonsensical ending But the rest of this book Pure gold A little warning, though this is not a shiny, polis 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 thefun with the self deprecation that is Bridget I 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

naughties and the nineties, for me at least.I love the mention in the book of Colin Firth and Hugh Grant I love these guys full stop And what s not to love aboutGav had cooked spag bog But why oh why are Aussie s always portrayed as drunkards Perhaps there really is something behind that.I have nothing to wear I m no good at anything Not men Not social skills Not work NothingLove herWhere in the

stab someone else s eyes out Plum Sykes springs to mind , but my point is that it wasn t just bad but actually highly disturbing Disturbing as in, does not so much shake as demolish one s faith in humanity and makes one tremble in horror at the times we re evidently living in I also tried Good in Let s review this book the Bridget wayReading goal for 2011 35 books not bad Books actually read 38
