I went through the book pages and I was pleased to see that it was like a real diary. I can't wait to read it.
I bought it to Atlanta Books Company as a used book in very good conditions, they sent me the book super fast and i couldn't tell if it was really used before, just perfect, I'm glad I bought it from them.
The English slang words were both cute and funny. There's also Jone's abbreviations (i.e.: v. and v.g. = very and very good) that even I found myself using for a little while.
Her love triangle with her boss Daniel Cleaver (all bad boy) and lawyer Mark Darcy (good guy) is really romantic. Daniel is the guy that she resolved not to obsess about as he is an alcoholic, workaholic, commitment phobic, chauvinist and emotional f-wits (all things she also resolved not to fall for). Mark is the good guy who finishes last. Yes, he was already taken (the woman was a crazy needy woman who didn't love him). Yes, he couldn't make decision or stand up for himself (the clothes he wore were his mother's choices). But after a while I could tell that she should pick the lawyer over the cheat.
This is a good Brit-lit series (2 1/2 books). Bridget is a little over the top at times, but that's what makes the character so funny.
For the very first time in my life, I expect the movie to exceed the book. That is, the book is fine, and funny; it just was so very shallow, and maybe that was intentional, but it struck me as pitiful. Felt like I was reading a treatment of Sex in the City (or is it and? never watched it).
