Bridget Jones by Helen Fielding PDF

Caught between the joys of Singleton fun, and the fear of dying alone and being found three weeks later half eaten by an Alsatian; tortured by Smug Married friends asking, “How’s your love life?” with lascivious, yet patronizing leers, Bridget 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. With a blend of flighty charm, existential gloom, and endearing self-deprecation, Bridget Jones’s Diary has touched a raw nerve with millions of readers the world round. Read it and laugh—before you cry, “Bridget Jones is me!” Bridget Jones by Helen Fielding PDF

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

In the course of the year recorded in Bridget Jones’s Diary, Bridget confides her hopes, her dreams, and her monstrously fluctuating poundage, not to mention her consumption of 5277 cigarettes and “Fat units 3457 (approx.) (hideous in every way).” In 365 days, she gains 74 pounds. On the other hand, she loses 72! There is also the unspoken New Year’s resolution–the quest for the right man. Alas, here Bridget goes severely off course when she has an affair with her charming cad of a boss. But who would be without their e-mail flirtation focused on a short black skirt? The boss even contends that it is so short as to be nonexistent. Bridget Jones by Helen Fielding PDF

At the beginning of Helen Fielding’s exceptionally funny second novel, the thirtyish publishing puffette is suffering from postholiday stress syndrome but determined to find Inner Peace and poise. Bridget will, for instance, “get up straight away when wake up in mornings.” Now if only she can survive the party her mother has tricked her into–a suburban fest full of “Smug Marrieds” professing concern for her and her fellow “Singletons”–she’ll have made a good start. As far as she’s concerned, “We wouldn’t rush up to them and roar, ‘How’s your marriage going? Still having sex?'” Bridget Jones by Helen Fielding PDF

This is only the first of many disgraces Bridget will suffer in her year of performance anxiety (at work and at play, though less often in bed) and living through other people’s “emotional fuckwittage.” Her twin-set-wearing suburban mother, for instance, suddenly becomes a chat-show hostess and unrepentant adulteress, while our heroine herself spends half the time overdosing on Chardonnay and feeling like “a tragic freak.” Bridget Jones’s Diary began as a column in the London Independent and struck a chord with readers of all sexes and sizes. Bridget Jones by Helen Fielding PDFIn strokes simultaneously broad and subtle, Helen Fielding reveals the lighter side of despair, self-doubt, and obsession, and also satirizes everything from self-help books (they don’t sound half as sensible to Bridget when she’s sober) to feng shui, Cosmopolitan-style. She is the Nancy Mitford of the 1990s, and it’s impossible not to root for her endearing heroine. On the other hand, one can only hope that Bridget will continue to screw up and tell us all about it for years and books to come. –Kerry Fried

Review – Bridget Jones by Helen Fielding PDF

I loved watching the movie version of this book, and I enjoyed how the characters were varied, but recognisable. The book, however, is far more raunchy, and goes into a really dark place towards the end. There are scenes I can recall from the movie showing up in the book (or vice versa really), and by and large the general thrust of the story still follows pretty closely. However, there are details that you can’t quite show in the movie that show up in the book that fill in the blanks. Bridget Jones by Helen Fielding PDF

The movie presents Bridget and Daniel’s initial relationship as a whirlwind romance, whereas in the book, it paints a much sadder picture. Bridget clearly wants /something/ out of it, and Daniel is interested in either a hook up, or watching TV. He can barely hold a conversation with Bridget, and the guy has all the romance of a teenage boy. It makes their relationship all the more depressing, but also fleshes it out way more clearly when we figure out that Daniel’s been with that other woman all along. It makes more /sense/ for that Daniel to do what he did. Bridget Jones by Helen Fielding PDF

Same goes for Mark. In the movie, it seems like all of a sudden there’s this switch that flips, where Mark and Bridget are into each other. In the book, you see that cat and mouse game carry through, which makes their eventual getting together make way more sense. It’s a series of they tried to get together, but either circumstances, Natasha, or International embezzlement and fraud would get in the way of that magic happening. It wasn’t some snooty prince come down off his high horse to fraternise with the commoners. It was more of a slow burn that had been building throughout the story, with a much more satisfying conclusion. Bridget Jones by Helen Fielding PDF

If you like the movie (or even if you didn’t like the movie), definitely give the book a read. It’s very enjoyable.
