What the Critics Say

"A brilliant evocation of life as a single girl in a certain time... reads like Anita Loos out of Jane Austen, and any woman who has ever had a job, a relationship or indeed a mother will read it and roar" (The Times)
"I cannot recommend a book more joyfully... Hilariously funny, miraculously observed, endlessly touching" (Daily Telegraph)
"Wild comedy... observed with merciless, flamboyant wit. A gloriously funny book" (Sunday Times)

    I loved it. I love the movie too even though some of it is different for obvious reasons. But if you like the movie you will love the book.

    "Still wonderful!"

    Have read this book half a dozen times and this is my first foray into Bridget's world on audio. Exactly the right voice for this entertaining character. Still laughed aloud at bits that I've read many times. Highly recommended.

    "fantastic narrator, great book"
    What made the experience of listening to Bridget Jones's Diary the most enjoyable?

    the narrator sounds exactly like a Bridget would, as well as the Mother and even the guys. She does a superb job, incredible acting talent. The book jumps off the earphones :)


    What other book might you compare Bridget Jones's Diary to and why?

    none so far, it's the best, i read it twice in a row already


    Which scene was your favorite?

    no particular one

    "A laugh"
    If you could sum up Bridget Jones's Diary in three words, what would they be?

    Everyday singelton fun!


    What other book might you compare Bridget Jones's Diary to and why?

    I know that it is surpose to be a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudices, but somehow I fell like that comparison takes something away from the finesse of Helen Fieldings book.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the movie, but every time I read the book I remember just how much more it brings to the story. So If you like the movie - read the book, not because it is better by leaps, but it really brings more to the world of Bridget Jones!

    "Very Funny"
    If you could sum up Bridget Jones's Diary in three words, what would they be?

    Very amusing entertainment


    Would you be willing to try another book from Helen Fielding? Why or why not?

    Yes. I really enjoyed listening to it


    Have you listened to any of Imogen Church’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I haven't. But I will certainly start looking for more of her performed readings. She's amazing


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud several time, and smirked quite a lot


    Any additional comments?

    I had watched the movie so pretty much knew what was going to happen, but I still enjoyed listening to it very much, thanks to the several situations the heroine got herself into and to the amazing performance of Imogen Church.

    "Classic book"

    Always loved this book, and was very excited to have an unabridged audiobook available. Superbly narrated by Imogen Church. A modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice incorporating the neurotic thoughts of a single thirtysomething women just looking for happiness. Warm and charming and laugh out loud funny - a fantastic piece of escapist fiction.

    "Not a book for the middle aged."

    when I first read this 25 years ago I laughed till I cried. listening to it as a middle aged woman with grown up children I realised the protagonist was in fact boring, facile and the incessant focus on her weight being under 9 stone was seriously worrying. it may be a period piece but I'm so glad that I don't think.like this now and am pretty certain I never did!

    "superbly funny - story and narration"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bridget Jones's Diary to be better than the print version?

    I never read the print version, its only because it was available in audio that I actually read/listen to the book. Would not read the book as like my memory of Imogen doing Bridget


    What other book might you compare Bridget Jones's Diary to, and why?

    Bridget JOnes Diary - Edge of Reason, as they are part of the same series. Haven't read/listened to any other books like this


    Have you listened to any of Imogen Church’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    As above, but I intend to listen to more of her work - totally amazed by her performances - superb


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Here she goes again


    Any additional comments?

    thanks to Imogen's amazing narration, I now prefer her version of Bridget to the famous Renee Zelwegger's film version of her charactor

    "Usually I enjoy the book better than the film"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Just the way Bridget is described - she is not endearing as portrayed in the film, but stupid.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Helen Fielding again?

    Not any of the Bridget Jones books, no.


    Have you listened to any of Imogen Church’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to any others. I'm not sure if it was the performance that spoilt it for me. I suspect not.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    I still love the film - was just disappointed by the book.

    I love the film but was really disappointed with the book. I found both the characters and story extremely annoying. Too repetitive talking about weight, smoking, drinking and men. First time I have ever known a film to be better than the book.
