I, like many others, have seen and loved the films and only decided to indulge in the books ahead of the new third instalment. Really surprised at just how much I enjoyed the books. Whilst Bridget is...well...Bridget, I was pleased at how there are lots of differences between the books and the films, particularly the second. The book is less farcical than the portrayal in the film. Would definitely recommend Bridget fans to buy and read these books
Will never not love this book and sequel. We are all Bridget in someway or another and we will never not dream of finding our Mark Darcy!!! Timeless love story that captures a long lost era before whatapp FB texting and Twitter ruined it all for us!!
Such a classic - what can I really say?? A good, funny read, but very frank in how a thirty-something views the world and how the world seems to see them. If it was part of the school curriculum how easier my twenties would have been!
I kinda liked the movie I watched while cooking dinner on a random Friday evening,it was somewhat entertaining. In general I prefer the books to the film, wanted a light read for a change, and so I got this. I didn't like the books at all. I didn't like the style of writing, I didn't like the author's use of "oh-so cool slang", which seemed to be quite artificial to me, and I had a hard time finishing even the first one. Gave up on the second. It was actually incredibly boring, and I just couldn't manage to "like" the heroine. For once I prefer a movie to a book, I think that's a "first" for me.
