This was a short, but funny book told through the eyes of Bridget Jones. It was funny because it was pretty much the first two books combined into a concise guide book on how to live like Bridget. She has always made me laugh and this book did not disappoint. The way she views life; from food and finance to romance is hilarious and could probably make anyone laugh. If you have read the Bridget Jones's books and have seen the movies, then this book is sure to make you laugh.
This book is so funny and quirky, and actually has some sound advice. It's almost as if your best friend is talking to you through this book. This is the only Bridget Jones book I've read but I absolutely love the movies💕 can't wait to read the rest of the series!!
This isn't really a book, so much as it was a short booklet intended to wring money out of Helen Fielding fans. It's about 50 pages long and averages maybe 50 words per page in which Bridget offers advice on topics from Cheese ("1. Find bit of cheese in fridge. 2. Cut off mold. 3. Eat.") to Feng Shui ("Don't put a wastepaper basket in your relationship corner.") It's fairly dumb, but at the time that I bought it, $1.00 of the cover price went to famine relief in Africa. This is no longer true (a...
Funny and full of "useful" tips for every modern woman :p.
I really enjoyed this. It's British so lots of F words and it is pretty much about sex so.... yah.
I didn't expect much (differently than many other readers out there, especially those who left reviews here), so I wasn't disappointed. It is just Bridget Jones like stuff, probably how her journal would actually look like. Very quick, funny at times, overall enjoyable read. Would I read this again? Of course not. Would I recommend it to someone who hasn't read all Bridget Jones books (I definitely wouldn't.) But for the time being, this one time reading experience was alright.
short and fun read
Warning to potential readers; this guilty pleasure pamphlet does not constitute the label 'book'.A worryingly accurate portrayal of the decay of the modern woman! I will demonstrate with the following small extract: The Store Cupboard"A well-stocked store cupboard is the key to not having to go out to the shops too much. Here are my top five store cupboard must-haves:- Silk Cut- 4 bottles of white wine(at least - you never know who will come round)- Matches- Canapes (i.e. crisps)- Not Marmite*-
Bridget Jones, the heroine from Helen Fielding's popular novels, takes it upon herself to write a self-help book for thirty-something-year old single women like herself. I would recommend reading this before reading Bridget Jones's Diary; otherwise you'll just get a 60-page rehashing of some of the novel's funnier parts. luckily, that's how I read it in the first place, so there were no problems for me.
Hum. Well, this was fairly fun. But the price tag of $5.99 (I didn't pay this) is a bit steep. I think if I'd paid this much I'd feel a bit duped. It's really short with lots of pictures and blank spaces. It feels like Helen Fielding saw an opportunity (and good for her, who an blame her) with the current, at the time, success of her other Bridget Jones books. So, I had to only give this 2 stars. Fair? The way it is.
Light, witty, insubstantial. I remember when I first bought this over 10 years ago I thought it was just as funny and brilliant as the Bridget Jones novels. Now it’s enough to entertain me for 45 minutes or so while waiting for my car to be serviced, but it didn’t make me laugh out loud like it used to – probably because it’s a very condensed version of recycled ideas from the novels, and contains very little new content.
Narrated by Bridget Jones, and taking place somewhere within the chronology of The Edge of Reason, this book- err... novella- err... collection of short satires in the fashion that Helen Fielding is so masterful at executing. The prose sings and brings forth recollections from Mark Twain's "A Gentleman's Burlesque" and Ambrose Bierce's The Devil's Dictionary. Packaged with pictures, this 55 page volume holds a mirror to our society that now is so often found within the recesses of the Internet.
I have read this book before and found ot very funny while i wouldnt take it on holiday unless in e book form its fab to read on a wet weekend when youre full of cold have supplies of chosen drink and snacks at the ready because you will not want to put it down
There's nothing like reading a book and laughing along from start to end and not putting it down 'til it's finished. Helen Fielding is incomparable with the wit and guile of her hilarious style. The only downside is length -- there needs to be an extended manual with Bridget's POV all over it!
Cute and a quick read. More entertaining really.
It was funny, for two seconds. It is only a few pages long and really no one would follow the advice because it's meant to be comical.
Ditto to the first one.
I refer to it religiously
Not the best of the bridget jones series, but I had to check it out.
What crap. THis wasn't even really a book. Seems like a really cheap way to make some money. It took me less than an hour to read that book.
This is more of a booklet than book. Still a cute and funny read for the fans of Bridget Jones.
I got this book at a second hand store because it has a funny dedication on the inside jacket. I wasn't really that amused but my expectations weren't very high either. Just not my style I guess.
i want to read this book
A funny little add-on to the Bridget Jones's books. Re-read while watching UCONN vs. WVA.
Clever, light, and funny.
Silly little pamphlet to help you the Bridget Way!
A funny Bridget who-to... just like all the ones she read through the series.
Bridget Jones is a ridiculous character, hence her eternal "charm." My sibling and I quote the original film because we know it by heart. It's sexist at first, but has a def feminist twist in the later half. The film, not this book but, I digress.This book is filled with absolute shite/b.s. advice. True Bridget form, lol. Mostly involving bottles of wine. I can't say it's true to life, but it's like candy or balm or a hot cuppa tea. Satisfying and brings a smile and a chuckle.
Delightfully daft guide to life, presented as only Bridget Jones could. V entertaining.
Funny short read
