Bridget Jones's Diary
This book was at times a very slow read, and I kept thinking why do I need to know some of this information. At times, I was laughing out loud. She is very shallow and quite dull. I don't feel like there was any depth to her. Since we are reading her diary she should be even more real of a person to us, but I found myself wondering if there was a time when she isn't selfish. During times when there was incarceration or a missing person on the line, she really only cared about herself and how she looked. The plot was super slow paced. I felt myself counting pages till the end, which is never a good sign when I'm reading a book. The problem is I like the movie more. I have only said that about one book before, The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks. Here again though I feel like I have the same feeling. I didn't feel really feel attached to any of the character, or their futures. I don't think I am going to read the second book.
