Publisher's Summary

It's hard to believe there's a single woman on the planet who can't relate to Bridget Jones. Brought to life here by Imogen Church's playful narration, Bridget is as hopelessly irresistible - and just plain hopeless - as ever.

A dazzling urban satire of modern human relations? An ironic, tragic insight into the demise of the nuclear family? Or the confused ramblings of a pissed thirty-something? The third installment in Bridget Jones' journey, Mad About the Boy, is now out.

©1996 Helen Fielding (P)2013 Pan Macmillan Publishers Ltd

What the critics say

"A brilliant evocation of life as a single girl in a certain time... reads like Anita Loos out of Jane Austen, and any woman who has ever had a job, a relationship or indeed a mother will read it and roar" ( The Times)
"I cannot recommend a book more joyfully... Hilariously funny, miraculously observed, endlessly touching" ( Daily Telegraph)
"Wild comedy... observed with merciless, flamboyant wit. A gloriously funny book" ( Sunday Times)

Love Bridget!

Bridget is so wonderfully real. A bit dated in the details that’s why it is 4 and not 5 stars. Definitely worth the credit and narrator is perfect!

Manic

The manic nature of her mind was too much to listen too. It just stressed me out.

Amazing narrator!

Loved the narrator. She kept me interested and entertained the whole time. I was eager to listen to the book daily. The only thing is that the story dragged for a bit but i still enjoyed it and laughed. Highly recommended.

Still wonderful!

Have read this book half a dozen times and this is my first foray into Bridget's world on audio. Exactly the right voice for this entertaining character. Still laughed aloud at bits that I've read many times. Highly recommended.

A laugh

If you could sum up Bridget Jones's Diary in three words, what would they be?

Everyday singelton fun!

What other book might you compare Bridget Jones's Diary to and why?

I know that it is surpose to be a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudices, but somehow I fell like that comparison takes something away from the finesse of Helen Fieldings book.

Any additional comments?

I love the movie, but every time I read the book I remember just how much more it brings to the story. So If you like the movie - read the book, not because it is better by leaps, but it really brings more to the world of Bridget Jones!

fantastic narrator, great book

What made the experience of listening to Bridget Jones's Diary the most enjoyable?

the narrator sounds exactly like a Bridget would, as well as the Mother and even the guys. She does a superb job, incredible acting talent. The book jumps off the earphones :)

Hmmm

I forgot how much women were required to hate themselves in the 90s.
Yikes.
Cute story, but I'm glad feminism has moved forward.

Just plain fun!

Have you listened to any of Imogen Church’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listening to Imogene Church before this, but absolutely loved her Bridget.

Any additional comments?

I've read this book several times, usually following some other heavy tome I wanted to rinse from my head. It's just a good bit of fun, certainly not intellectual, but a light-hearted way to pass time. And, if you think about it, you either know someone who somehow resembles Bridget or maybe you see a little of yourself in her.

Better than the movie

Witty, funny and scarily realistic ! Excellent performance with the lovely voice of Imogen Church. Highly recommended :)
