The real Bridget Jones. Bryony Gordon survived her adolescence by dreaming about the life she'd have in her 20s: the perfect job; the lovely flat; the amazing boyfriend.
The reality was something of a shock. Her Telegraph column was a diary of her daily screw-ups; she lived in a series of squalid shoe boxes; and her most meaningful relationship of the entire decade was with a Marlboro Light.
Here in the Sunday Times best-selling The Wrong Knickers, Bryony busts open the glamorized myth of what it means to be a young (perpetually) single girl about London town and shares the horrible and hilarious truth. The truth about picking up a colleague at the STI clinic; sinking into debt to fund a varied diet of wine, crisps, and vodka; and how it feels when your dream man turns out to be a one-night stand who hands you someone else's knickers in the morning.
Bryony's wonderfully ridiculous and ultimately redemptive story is essential listening for everyone whose 'best years' weren't quite what they were expecting....

Spent much of this recalling (not remembering mind you, that would be impossible, is all a blahrrrr) my misspent youth. We woemen are toto loco.
But loved this.
Yes it was entertaining and quite light hearted fun, very easy to listen to. I found the crude/crass sense of humour refreshing and honest.
A cheeky indignant sense of humour not for anyone who prudish or prim
Liked this book, so much so I have already ordered the prequel - this book gives me hope! An easy listen book, would recommend
It is a great mix of funny, serious, thought provoking and very honest and real
