Perhaps wisely, Helen Fielding just expects the readers to go along with this and not ask too many inconvenient questions.

While it’s a bit confusing to have the film Bridget Jones’s Baby still playing in the cinemas, and the new (different, but also somewhat similar book) out at the same time, I suppose we’ll have to view the situation as very Bridget Jones (as in muddled, erring on preposterous, but oddly charming nonetheless) and move swiftly along. Perhaps wisely, Helen Fielding just expects the readers to go along with this and not ask too many inconvenient questions. Renée Zellweger: there is so much more to her than Bridget Jones Observer profile.

I don't think I've encountered a more insufferable protagonist in all my life. Bridget Jones spends the entire novel obsessing about finding a boyfriend, and in the end, finds one she doesn't deserve, with little character growth or justification. It didn't feel self-aware enough to be a satire, though I can't imagine what the point might be. Vicious sexual assault is treated as a plot mechanism to advance Bridget's career in the salacious news imdustry while the protag whines about modern single life over champagne at dinner parties. It's like reading what a misogynist must think women are really like. I'm adding a star because Mark Darcy is hot. But that might well be due to the fact I keep picturing him as Colin Firth. I don't even know who I would recommend this to. People who need a wake-up call, perhaps. Go see the movie instead.
This book officially falls into the same category for me as Pretty Little Liars: silly fluff that I normally would not read, but for some reason I just cannot put my finger on, it intrigues me.

But, it started out almost as a book I was going to abandon, because she about drove me crazy at the start (and, frankly, through the whole book) with her updates and moanings and groanings about her weight. And while I am not looking to start any debate about weight issues with my review, I do feel that when you are around 120-130 pounds, you don't have much to complain about as far as being fat goes. UNLESS you have COMPLETELY bought into society's view on things. And, let's face it...at the time this book came out (1996), society was pretty much into thin, thin, thin. It is not like now, 19 years later where people are starting to be a bit more accepting of all body types...especially recognizing the effect that the media has on girls and women.

But, the more I got into the book, the more the soap opera feel of the book took hold, and I just became hooked. Now, I am not one to watch soap operas except on those rare occasions that I for some reason get hooked into one. BUT, I do like a good drama, and sometimes one needs a bit of fluff. Especially when one reads a lot of dark mysteries and whatnot like I do all the time. Sometimes it is nice to read about problems like Bridget's that have to do with men, and being single, family rather than people being murdered and creepers around every corner.

To be honest, this is a series that I have been terribly interested in for ages. Probably for a decade or more. I just never made the time for the book or the movie. And now that I have, I have to admit that I am kind of glad that I did. Even though I am not totally gushing about the book, and I did watch part of the movie yesterday (no, my rating is not AT ALL based on the movie...just on the book), and the movie, of course, deviates from the book wildly. It was kind of fun to read after awhile, and I enjoyed settling down at the end of the day with a book that wasn't going to scare the pants off of me. Because while I do love that adrenaline rush, sometimes it is better to just relax.
Helen Fielding is an excellent comedic in this Bridget series. The first portion of the book Bridget had me laughing right at the start. Her New Years resolution was long with will not and wills. But there were some resolutions that I could even relate to.

The English slang words were both cute and funny. There's also Jone's abbreviations (i.e.: v. and v.g. = very and very good) that even I found myself using for a little while.

Her love triangle with her boss Daniel Cleaver (all bad boy) and lawyer Mark Darcy (good guy) is really romantic. Daniel is the guy that she resolved not to obsess about as he is an alcoholic, workaholic, commitment phobic, chauvinist and emotional f-wits (all things she also resolved not to fall for). Mark is the good guy who finishes last. Yes, he was already taken (the woman was a crazy needy woman who didn't love him). Yes, he couldn't make decision or stand up for himself (the clothes he wore were his mother's choices). But after a while I could tell that she should pick the lawyer over the cheat.

This is a good Brit-lit series (2 1/2 books). Bridget is a little over the top at times, but that's what makes the character so funny.
I think I've seen the movie version about 20 times - oh how we love Colin Firth and Hugh Grant and even Renee Zellweger. And then I finally decided to read the book. The good news is: I LOVED the book. There are a few parts that were not in the movie, so it was still a refreshing and fun read. The not so bad news: I kept picturing/hearing Colin, Hugh, and Renee (and her band of friends) as I read through this. The bad news: I think there were scenes in the movie that were not in the book. I don't recall exactly which, but I felt like I was having memory problems while reading the book and trying to recall the movie.

Overall, if you've already seen the movie, all is not lost. Read the book! And then watch the movie again. Both are fun and worth it in their own rights.
