Publisher's Summary

It's hard to believe there's a single woman on the planet who can't relate to Bridget Jones. Brought to life here by Imogen Church's playful narration, Bridget is as hopelessly irresistible - and just plain hopeless - as ever.

A dazzling urban satire of modern human relations? An ironic, tragic insight into the demise of the nuclear family? Or the confused ramblings of a pissed thirty-something? The third installment in Bridget Jones' journey, Mad About the Boy, is now out.

©1996 Helen Fielding (P)2013 Pan Macmillan Publishers Ltd

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)

    "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.

    "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.

    "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

    "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!

    "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.

    "Good light hearted listen"

    This book is so familiar to me now that it's like a visit from an old friend. Imogen Church's narration was good and she voiced Bridget very authentically.

    I am the same age as Bridget :D so this book really appeals to me, however younger people might find it a bit dated.

    "My first audio book...I chose a good one!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bridget Jones's Diary to be better than the print version?

    I haven't gotten around to reading the print version so thought this would be a good opportunity to "read" the books, as I love the film so much.


    What does Imogen Church bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Imogen Church reads the book fantastically, the voices she does for each character are spot on and makes the book so so funny to listen to. I laughed out loud many times!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I listened to this book over 2 and a half weeks, on the way to and from work, and it was perfect!


    Any additional comments?

    I really recommend this book, especially for any first timers to Audible. It is a very funny book, and Imogen does a great job of making the characters come to life and you can picture them as she speaks. Exactly like the film!! So so good, I will listen to this again at some point I'm sure, and have already downloaded the second one!

    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!

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

    I have not listening to Imogene Church before this, but absolutely loved her Bridget.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read this book several times, usually following some other heavy tome I wanted to rinse from my head. It's just a good bit of fun, certainly not intellectual, but a light-hearted way to pass time. And, if you think about it, you either know someone who somehow resembles Bridget or maybe you see a little of yourself in her.

    I loved the humor and how real Bridget feels... very relatable and lovable.
    I don't think it's my mother's sort of book... I would say if you find the movies funny and find a kindred spirit in Bridget, you should definitely check out the books (keep in mind that they actually dulled the movies down a bit to keep the ratings pg13).
