I liked this book about as much as the first one, though this one was a lot more different from the movie than the first one was.

Like in the first one, I found myself constantly criticizing Bridget for everything I see wrong with her—her lack of self-esteem, her inablity to see the consequences of her actions, and her continual tardiness. I mean, I'm a continually tardy person myself, but I wouldn't do something stupid like go out shopping when my plane is due to leave in a few hours. That's just asking for trouble. Heck, I refrain from leaving the house the entire day I'm leaving to go anywhere till I have to leave to catch the plane.

In any case, though I found myself constantly scolding her in my head, her actions and those of her friends, are amusing indeed. The fact I'd find myself chuckling at Bridget's stupidity, despite the fact that I thought she was an idiot, allowed me to give this book a rating of 8 anyway. :)

Now that I've read both Bridget books, I've got a small 50 page copy of Bridget Jones's Guide to Life to read as part of a BookCrossing bookring. Looks like fun!

A fun book, but falls short of being as amusing as the first Bridget Jones book. It is still a funny and quirky tale with an original character that one can't help but feel for.

I think I enjoyed this book even more than the first one. The diary enties were longer in general and I think that made the book flow a bit better than the first. It is funny and every woman can relate to Bridget in one way or another. If you are fan of chick lit this is definitely a must read.

Very enjoyable. Not quite as good as the first one (when are sequals ever as good?) but a very fun read. If you enjoyed the first book, you will like this one too.

You know you are getting old when you admit that the book was WAY better than the movie.

Very enjoyable. I saw the movie first. It was a bit different but still lovely. A must read for Bridget fans.

I read this a week before seeing the movie and liked it almost as much as the first book. I "awwwwed" at the end. Should've read it months ago, though -- as I watched the movie, I kept comparing it to the book, instead of enjoying it on its own merits. I did the same thing a few years ago with the first Spider-Man movie--I'd grown up reading all my brother's Marvel comics, so for the first ten minutes of the movie, I was horribly distracted by all the things they'd changed.

Bloody g. fun, dur! (As Bridget might say!) You must try this! I think that its actually funnier than the 1st one - I have this book on CD and I listen to it all the time on trips and such. Funny, Witty, & Warm, just like the original - slide into Bridget's absurd little world for a while! Of course if you're expecting anything even vaguely resembling reality - read an Al Franken book instead!
