Mangia troppo, beve troppo, fuma troppo, ha una mamma troppo invadente, un uomo troppo sposato e troppo pochi "pretendenti". È il ritratto di una single di oggi, moderna trentenne in carriera, quale risulta dal diario di un anno della sua vita, dove vengono raccontati, con humor e ironia, i problemi, le speranze, le delusioni di una donna qualunque.

Prepare yourselves, it's about to get personal up in here. So, I've never seen the movie of Bridget Jones's Diary, so I thought I would read the highly acclaimed book before doing so and, to my great surprise, I ended up hating almost everything about it. I 100% understand why people like it - it's f Leggi tutto
I didn't enjoy this book in an ironic way, or in a it's-good-even-though-, or I-can't-believe-I-do-but-I-perversely-can't-help-it or any other angled, roundabout, halfway indirect from behind kind of way.... No. I sat on my couch and wolfed this thing down in one sitting while laughing my ass off. I Leggi tutto
Like our narrator, both funny and deceptively stylish. (I have not seen the film).

Read as part of The Infinite Variety Reading Challenge , based on the BBC's Big Read Poll of 2003. Let me introduce you to the Béchamel Test. No, not the Bechdel Test, that's different. And not the sauce, either. The Béchamel Test is a very simply checklist to see if you should read a book or simply se Leggi tutto
I'm torn as to how to rate this. On the one hand, Fielding nails the humor. Humor is very hard to capture in literature and I often found myself smiling or chuckling. But when I wasn't, I was exasperated with Bridget Jones. Fielding nails her too. Why do women insist on being proud of being so... sh Leggi tutto
Get up and make sensible plan. Will work hard on journal paper during day, then go for well-earned picnic at open-air movie theatre. Tonight's movie Bridget Jones's Diary (v. good). Make salmon florentine for picnic, will eat half there and save rest for tomorrow. Feel v. organized. Hard to concentra Leggi tutto
This certainly wasn't a novel but, what's worse, it wasn't even a credible diary. Who records their mishaps while cooking and running late in their preparations? Perhaps if this were written in the phone-texting age, I could imagine someone constantly chronicling their every move, no matter how pres Leggi tutto
" Skirt is indisputably absent. Is skirt off sick? " Despite what most of my friends think about me, I'm a sucker for good romantic comedies. Sure, they'll tell you that I mostly end up calling everything cheesy and roll my eyes but that's a coping mechanism and they just don't get me, alright? One of Leggi tutto
