Book #5

Bridget Jone's Diary - Helen Fielding

Ya, I know, I'm only a decade behind the rest of the girls that have read this book, but I did finally get around to it.

I do have to confess that I did not read this book in 3 days, like it may look. I have been picking at this one for about six months, off and on and did finally finish it.

I'm not going to elaborate much, everyone should know basically about the plot, even if by just having watched the movie.

I was more interested in the parallels between the book and Pride and Prejudice, which besides that fact that the male hero's name happens to be Mark Darcy, are pretty sparse. I suppose if you think loosely and squint you may see a few similarities.

It's a clever book, all things considered. And that is all there is to say, 'cause I'm pretty sure I'm one of the last girls on the planet that have just now gotten around to reading this book.

  1. Okay, you HAVE to read the second book. Funnier than the first and not at all like the terrible movie they made of the second book. There is also less correlation between Pride and Prejudice and the plot in the second book, which gave me more respect for Fielding.
