Amazon.de

In the course of the year recorded in Bridget Jones's Diary, Bridget confides her hopes, her dreams, and her monstrously fluctuating poundage, not to mention her consumption of 5277 cigarettes and "Fat units 3457 (approx.) (hideous in every way)." In 365 days, she gains 74 pounds. On the other hand, she loses 72! There is also the unspoken New Year's resolution--the quest for the right man. Alas, here Bridget goes severely off course when she has an affair with her charming cad of a boss. But who would be without their e-mail flirtation focused on a short black skirt? The boss even contends that it is so short as to be nonexistent.

At the beginning of Helen Fielding's exceptionally funny second novel, the thirtyish publishing puffette is suffering from postholiday stress syndrome but determined to find Inner Peace and poise. Bridget will, for instance, "get up straight away when wake up in mornings." Now if only she can survive the party her mother has tricked her into--a suburban fest full of "Smug Marrieds" professing concern for her and her fellow "Singletons"--she'll have made a good start. As far as she's concerned, "We wouldn't rush up to them and roar, 'How's your marriage going? Still having sex?'"

This is only the first of many disgraces Bridget will suffer in her year of performance anxiety (at work and at play, though less often in bed) and living through other people's "emotional fuckwittage." Her twin-set-wearing suburban mother, for instance, suddenly becomes a chat-show hostess and unrepentant adulteress, while our heroine herself spends half the time overdosing on Chardonnay and feeling like "a tragic freak." Bridget Jones's Diary began as a column in the London Independent and struck a chord with readers of all sexes and sizes. In strokes simultaneously broad and subtle, Helen Fielding reveals the lighter side of despair, self-doubt, and obsession, and also satirizes everything from self-help books (they don't sound half as sensible to Bridget when she's sober) to feng shui, Cosmopolitan-style. She is the Nancy Mitford of the 1990s, and it's impossible not to root for her endearing heroine. On the other hand, one can only hope that Bridget will continue to screw up and tell us all about it for years and books to come. --Kerry Fried

Der Erfolg dieses Buchs liegt ganz einfach darin: Briget kommt in eine Situation die jeder ledigen Frau über, aber auch vielen frauen unter 30 bekannt ist. Egal ob sie Probleme mit Alkohol, Kalorien, Zigaretten, peinlichen Eltern, fehlenden Männern, Männern im Bett, Männern mit fremden Frauen hat - man kann sich sofort mit der Situation identifizieren. NUR man hat sich selbst immer wenn auch nicht gut, so doch besser als sie aus der Affaire gezogen. Die suche nach Mr.Right und das vorbeilaufen an Mr. Secondbest wird sehr schön herausgearbeitet. Dieses Buch wurde zu Recht millionenmale verkauft, es ist einfach köstlich zu lesen - zumal in englisch. Ich habe mal ein halbes jahr in einem Londoner Vorort gelebt, ich erkenne da viele Charaktere wieder, denen ich so oder sehr ähnlich auch begegnet bin.
Ich habe früher mit großer Freude die Adrian Mole Tagebücher von Sue Townsend gelesen, dieses Bridget Jones's Diary hat große Ähnlichkeiten mit Cappuccino year's, nur eben mit der weiblichen Seite.
Warum kommt jetzt der Wunsch nach den Tagebüchern der jungen Bridget in mir auf? Eine pubertierende, gefrustete 11-15 jährige Ms. Jones fehlt mir irgendwie noch in der Sammlung.
Das Buch baut aus meiner Sicht frustrierte Frauen um 30 wieder auf. Es sagt: Du bist nicht allein, andere Frauen haben noch mehr Pech!
... und das lesen wir doch alle ganz gern ;-)

A female colleague gave me Bridget Jones's Diary, insisting that it isn't a "girlie book" but rather a funny book even men could like. Well, she is both wrong and right. It is most definitely a book about and for women, but it is so light hearted and funny that even men can enjoy it (assuming they can get over the embarassment of being seen with such a book!).
Bridget Jones is a story of one year in the life on a 30-ish, single London girl. She is constantly in panic mode, unbelievably obsessive about her weight, looks, and what people think of her. No, the story is hardly original. But Ms. Fielding takes these female stereotypes and blows them out of such hilarious proportions that, well, it's hard not to laugh with (and at) Bridget's problems. And men will find Bridget Jones generally likeable because, fortunately, the story doesn't take its "man bashing" very seriously.
Being a middle-aged (American) male in London, I thought the world was looking at me when I read this "girlie" book on the Underground. But this didn't bother me in the least; it's their loss for not reading it themselves.
And for those who might think my female colleague is some sort of Bridget Jones herself, guess again. The previous book she loaned me was Crime and Punishment (..fat chance Bridget would buy let alone read that!).

Damn those Fruit Smoothies!
A cry heard throughout Bridget Jones's Diary is sure to ring true for every woman, married or single.
This book kept me awake and entertained on a flight home from Asia. I could not put it down and finished it in one straight read. Bridget is every woman's insecure side. Yet she is still someone who you would want as a friend. It is well written and easily readable. This is one great beach book.
Bridget Jones's Diary - is a look inside an insecure and quirky young woman's life - her daily intake of cigarette's, alcohol and calorie's consumed as well as her never dull love life...
A hilarious ride along a journey you won't want to end!

Bridget Jones, while 30ish and single, struggles with a set of core issues that all women can identify with. Career stagnation, relationship problems, and body image, are colorfully, and humorously documented. No matter what age, marital status, or body type, most women who read this book will find herself repeatedly surprised to discover that her own inner struggles and thoughts are accurately voiced, or maybe may have a diary frighteningly similar to Bridget's. She has the ability, through her insightful excerpts to show how absurd life can be. The reader is inspired to wonder why we create such a chaotic, emotionally stressful life with our obsession for the superficial in this world. Why do we, especially women, value losing weight, getting a boyfriend, and "inner poise", rather than learning a new skill, helping other people, and spiritual growth? The goals that Bridget strives for and sometimes achieves are never fulfilling for her because they don't contribute to the intelligent,compassionate, giving person that Bridget sometimes is. Nevertheless, we don't judge Bridget. We laugh at her life's situations because they are so close to home.
In a world where obscure, unattainable things are worshipped, Bridget's life illustrates how we are easily confused as to what brings us true happiness. The book does not attempt to make a statement on women's issues, right or wrong. Instead, Bridget Jones Diary does a fabulous job at recapitulating the inner struggles of women living in commercial, modern society.

I began Bridget Jones' Diary expecting to be amused, entertained, and equipped with a quick beach read. Rather than wait, however, I consumed this novel within two days, neither of which was spent at the beach -- although it was a light, quick read. Those in search of deep meaning and revelation need look elsewhere for satisfaction -- Diary is the literary equivalent of a (good) quickie -- short, sweet, and to the point, but with a long-lasting impact.
The one unpleasant reaction I had was not to the book itself, but to the backlash against it. i didn't set out reding this book looking for a feminist hero -- the jacket clearly presents Bridget as a neurotic, self-conscious woman. In none of the feminist rebuttals of Fielding's book is there any mention of Bridget's friends' reactions to her final achievement of her ideal weight -- 119 lbs. Their response is hardly enthusiastic -- they tell her she looks ill, "deflated," and so on. And again, when Bridget finally gets the right man, she weighs (a staggering -- good lord, the poundage!) 129 lbs. Rather than remain in a dead-end job at her publishing company (where she unwisely becomes involved with her boss), Bridget branches out in the world and becomes a television reporter for a trachy channel. She gets a job she nejoys and works with people who begin to respect her rather than chide her for her laziness (but let's admit -- who wouldn't rather sunbathe than go to work?).
Nor is there any mention in this feminist backlash of how supportive Bridget is of both her parents throughout their separation, nomention of the men she rejects (yes, even the neurotics have their standards), no word about her best friends Tom,Jude, and Shazzer, all of whom have valubale and sensible input.
