Customer Review

on 3 April 2006
This book has so many good reviews, but I struggle to see why. I read both and saw the films (against my will!) and can still not understand why some people refer to it as a modern classic. Bridget is not a realistic portrayal of a woman, but a very depressing one. So many of my female friends have asked me if I have had a 'Bridget' moment I want to smack them. NO! Don't be riddiculous. Not every woman feels the need to smoke like a chimney, drink like they are still a teenager and moan in an upper class voice about being single. Why does everything in a woman's live have to lead up to the idea that getting married is the be all and end all? This book only reinforces this notion and I am sick sick sick of it! It is chic lit we can do without. Since this book was published, the amount of copy cat books around has increased by 200% and it makes me sad. Women do not want a character created for them so they can feel better about themselves. Our lives have turned into a world off shallowness and consumerism and all we care about is getting a man down the isle and popping out a few kids. Isn't there more to life? Obviously not.
