Meet Bridget Jones- a 30 something singleton who is certain she would have all the answers if she could:

a: lose 7 pounds
b: stop smoking
c: develop inner Poise

“123 lbs: (how is it possible to put on 4 pounds in the middle of the night? Could flesh have somehow solidfied becoming denser and heavier? Repulsive horrifying notion) Alcohol units 4 (Exellent) cigaretts 21 (poor but will give up totally tomorrow) number of correct lottery numbers 2 (Better but nevertheless useless)


I am in the minority on this book. I remember my mother loving this book and we have watched the movies many many times. So I thought I should give this a go.

As I said earlier that I have seen the movies before the book. Blame my mother for introducing it at such a young age where I didn’t know half of the stuff going on in the movie nor did I know that I would read this book in the future.

Any weasel, I didn’t like it. I didn’t find it funny but rather annoying. Bridget Jones mantra drove me insane. Okay not insane but I wanted to punch her on many occasions. I’m quite happy that I bought this on sale and didn’t pay the full price for it.

Going to put this in my category of movie was better than the book. Sorry to those who loved the book but I can’t stand it.
