for singletons everywhere Jul 19, 2007
I have to say, I loved this book. It is like a modern Pride and Prejudice, but a bit easier to relate to. Bridget's dinner with all her married friends, her somewhat successful calorie-counting, mistaken office romance and other single friends ready to back her up, even with nonsensical advice....I could totally recognize myself! And laugh, which was great. The follow-up didn't do as much for me, but this was very funny. Chick-lit? Sure, but with the redeeming value of being as funny as Austen (if less....clever) and the gooey romance doesn't hit until the very, very end.
