- Author Helen Fielding
Was a bit wary of reading this, as I recall disliking the second film very, very much, although I can’t really remember very much about it. But of course, books are not always like the films they are made into and this was fun, a bizarre year in the life of someone desperately trying to fit in.
I had to dip in and out of the book, as I couldn’t take too much Bridget all in one go, but in small doses, it was funny. I don’t relate to her very much at all, but then there’s the occasional insight that makes perfect sense, and it’s those bits that make it worthwhile.
This felt a bit more adventurous than the first, what with a Thailand jail, a visitor from Africa, and a bullet in the post. But still it’s the same old Bridget, and if you liked the first book, you’ll like the second.
