With another devastatingly hilarious, ridiculous, unnervingly accurate take on modern womanhood, Bridget Jones is back. (v.g.) Monday 27 January "7:15 a.m. Hurrah! The wilderness years are over. For four weeks and five days now have been in functional relationship with adult male, thereby proving am not love pariah as recently feared." Wednesday 5 March "7:08 p.m. Am assured, receptive, responsive woman of substance. My sense of self comes not from other people but . . .from . . .myself? That can't be right." Lurching from the cappuccino bars of Notting Hill to the blissed-out shores of Thailand, everyone's favorite Singleton Bridget Jones begins her search for The Truth in spite of pathetically unevolved men, insane dating theories, and Smug Married advice. She experiences a zeitgeist-esque Spiritual Epiphany somewhere between the pages of How to Find the Love You Want Without Seeking It (can self-help books really help self?), protective custody, and a lightly chilled Chardonnay.

As I've mentioned, I'm relistening to the Bridget Jones books because the new one is out and I'll be reading/listening to it soon; I feel I need to brush up on what happened ten billion years ago.So.Bridget.I never liked this story as well as the first one, though time has mellowed my viewpoint a bi...
This is my first youtube review for Bridget Jones The Edge of Reason. I had a hard time really getting out how I felt about the book, both in writing and talking. But here's a video Enjoy!
My dear Elizabeth Bennet.. I mean Bridget Jones, sorry! The only reason it took me so long to read your first diary (an unexpected 4 out of 5 stars by the way) is that I absolutely can’t stand the disturbing mentality behind the chick-lit genre. Don’t get me wrong; I totally get how the “failed ...
