"Bridget Jones's Diary" (A Laughing Ashley Review)

Happy Hump

  So, I wanted to do this amazing book, which in all honesty, I didn't know it was a book I only thought it was a movie. "Bridget Jones's Diary" by Helen Fielding, is a laugh out loud, real life situation that in some way I bet any girl can relate to. I know as I was reading this masterpiece, I thought OMG I would so totally do that or I have done that.

Here is the summary taken from Goodreads....

"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 solidified becoming denser and heavier? Repulsive, horrifying notion), alcohol units 4 (excellent), cigarettes 21 (poor but will give up totally tomorrow), number of correct lottery numbers 2 (better, but nevertheless useless)..."

Bridget Jones' Diary is the devastatingly self-aware, laugh-out-loud daily chronicle of Bridget's permanent, doomed quest for self-improvement — a year in which she resolves to: reduce the circumference of each thigh by 1.5 inches, visit the gym three times a week not just to buy a sandwich, form a functional relationship with a responsible adult, and learn to program the VCR.

Over the course of the year, Bridget loses a total of 72 pounds but gains a total of 74. She remains, however, optimistic. Through it all, Bridget will have you helpless with laughter, and — like millions of readers the world round — you'll find yourself shouting, "Bridget Jones is me!"

Bridget Jones is a 30 something year old woman who is just trying to survive her life and stay away from married couples, that keep asking her where her boyfriend is. Everything that she goes through makes her a stronger person and she is just so life like. That is what made this book so amazing to me. When you can relate to a main character and feel like they are 100% real, it makes a book so much better. This will have you laughing out loud to the point where co workers think there is a screw loose in your head, trust me I got a lot of those looks at my work when reading this, but you honestly can't help it.



Rating: 5/5 posters for Bridget Jones's Diary......
