Review: Bridget Jones Diary By: Helen Fielding

Bridget Jones's Diary (Bridget Jones, #1)Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is of course a re-read - could not resist locking myself away preparing for the third novel.
How I miss the voice of Bridget, fresh, raw, true - filled with humor, observation, snarky self-talk. I think that almost ever woman, if she is honest finds a bit of Bridget in herself. Is it the desperation, the fear loneliness, the wrong guy(s), the wrong choices, the want for something better, and the hope that we are worth it. Bridget is the inner voice - the self esteem, the crazy stalker, the bad eater, and wretched drinker we are.
Now if you think this is like the movie - think twice, yes Fielding had a hand in the movie, so it holds true to style and voice, but the book is different and just as enjoyable.
