Product Description

About the Author

Bridget Golightly is eighty-nine years old. She won the 100 m, 800 m, triple jump and solo synchronised swimming events in the 1968 Mexico Olympic Games. Highlights of her sparkling stage and film career include two Academy Awards as Best Supporting Actress for Little Dorrit and Rocky V, and her much-lauded Titania against Sir John Gielgud’s Bottom. Bridget is also a Nobel Prize-winning mathematician, renowned poet and international peacekeeper, and represented the United Kingdom in the 1959 Eurovision Song Contest with ‘Boom-bang-a-ting-a-ling on a String’. When she’s not busy bringing joy to the world, she likes to relax by drinking a nice cup of tea.

 

Joan Hardcastle is eighty-six years old, comes from Yorkshire and doesn’t believe a word Bridget says. Except the bit about the tea.

"...But she couldn't quite reach."
Says it all really...

Nigh impossible to dislike, a quick jolly but darkly humoured dual-diary from 80-something care home residents, as dissimilar from each other as it is possible to be.

An occasional parody of the recent third Bridget Jones book (wrinkletons, calorie counting, a few plot similarities) it works very well in its own right.

Joan is sensible, smart, and sick of Bridget, who keeps interrupting her in the middle of her 25,000 piece Serial Killer jigsaw. Bridget is flighty, flirty, dirty and dotty.

These are their misadventures together. Through day trips, hospital trips, shopping trips and the world of speed dating and texting.

I smiled throughout. The juxtaposed diary sections, with Joan's wry voice showing exactly what happened each day and Bridget's flights of fancy and excess very, very funny and enjoyable. Some great one-liners all the way through, and a lovely ending - just as it should be.

Go on, it's not a Bridget book - more a manual for how to grow old disgracefully... We all need some pointers...

A laugh a minute book, following the antics of two ladies of advanced years.
Couldn't stop laughing, I hope I have the same spirit when I am their age.

Can't remember when I laughed so loud or so long and on public transport as well! Got a few odd looks from fellow commuters, even managed to miss my train stop I was so engrossed but laughter is such a tonic and with the help of Bridget and Joan more people should try it! Couldn't put the book down, read it from cover to cover in one night. I recognised perhaps a few too many of my own traits in these two adorable little old ladies, which is both a worry for my family and a joy for me. Everyone should have a bit of Bridget and Joan in their lives so I've bought a few extra copies as gifts for friends who I know will benefit from the healing power of laughter. Thank you Bridget and Joan for brightening my mood.

This book is hilarious - I bought it on Kindle for myself but have bought a hard copy as a gift for my dearest friend. I am definitely Bridget to her Joan and I would love us to grow old as disgracefully as these two characters (or at least Bridget as she is the naughty one).

I work in the admin office of a care home. This reminded me of more than a few residents. Wonderful characters who bring the book to life.

Bought as a joke for a friend who wanted 'Bridget Jones Diary'. Joke rebounded because she read this one first and liked it very much.
