This certainly wasn't a novel but what's worse it wasn't even a credible diary Who records their mishaps while cooking and running late in their preparations Perhaps if this were written in the phone texting age I could imagine someone constantly chronicling their every move no matter how pressing the situation or how inane and empty the commentary but as it is this book serves as a frightening precursor to a new generation of books with no established atmosphere characters dialogue or insight Fielding would be better off looking into a crystal ball and telling people their fortunes than writing another non novel

Prepare yourselves it's about to get personal up in hereSo I've never seen the movie of Bridget Jones's Diary so I thought I would read the highly acclaimed book before doing so and to my great surprise I ended up hating almost everything about it I 100% understand why people like it it's funny and relatable and reminiscent of the great decade that was the 90's but because of a purely personal problem this book made me feel like garbage and therefore made me absolutely loathe my reading experience Bridget is always writing down her weight and saying she's fat but the thing is it's not just herself saying this Friends family and other characters also call her fat throughout the novel and then I look at me who weighs over 15 kilos than Bridget and it honestly made me feel like crap I have already been struggling with confidence and self loathing because over the past couple of years I've put on 25 kilos due to changing medications for my mental health so this book honestly just made it worse Is this what people on the street think about me when I walk by Do my friends and family secretly discuss how much weight I've put on behind my back It honestly took me back to when members of my own family were making snide remarks about my weight or offering suggestions for how exercise and dieting could benefit me thinking they were helping when really it made it ten times worse I was 34 of the way through the book when I thought to myself has anything plot wise actually happened Nope Just a bunch of damaging self hatred that triggered my own I get that a lot of people love the book and that's fine I totally get it but for me it ended up being a damaging and destructive novel that ended up being uite triggering for my depressionLet me know any thoughts you guys have on this book or any of the things I've discussedAround the Year in 52 Books Challenge Notes 20 A book with a first name in the title

Bridget Jones's DiaryAnd heavier Repulsive horrifying notion alcohol units 4 excellent cigarettes 21 poor but will give up totally tomorrow number of correct lottery numbers 2 better but nevertheless useless Bridget Jones's Diary is the devastatingly self aware laugh out loud daily chronicle of Bri. I'm torn as to how to rate this On the one hand Fielding nails the humor Humor is very hard to capture in literature and I often found myself smiling or chuckling But when I wasn't I was exasperated with Bridget Jones Fielding nails her too Why do women insist on being proud of being so shallow Idiotic blind about themselves and their lives and obsessed with all the wrong things in life I didn't sympathize with Bridget at all nor did I really care about the holes she dug herself into This book is the perfect example of why I don't read chick lit I just don't relate to this definition of what women are More than that I'm embarrassed by itI also didn't buy into the love story I didn't really get why Bridget liked him other than he was there But what else than a shallow love interest did I expect from Bridget I'm glad that the Pride and Prejudice undertones were not blatant or I might of cried that Fielding so disgraced the characters I liked the way Renee Zellweger played Bridget so much than the way this is written At least in the movie she has a brain and a personality worth something and she seems a little above all the nonsense around her One of these days I'd like to read chick lit with a protagonist I can relate to but then again would it really be light and chick lit ish
