Summary

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....

not worth even if it was free

I purchased the book because I had read it was something like Bridget Jones and wanted a light fun read.
It was all the contrary. I couldn't empathise with the main character even if I tried. It was a succession of unrelated episodes allegedly fun where the characters were diluted neither evolved, to get to an abrupt happy ending that comes from nowhere.

Funny funny

Loved this light hearted story, that was full of completely relatable anecdotes that any 20-something will have experienced!
Some extremely funny moments, however my only criticism is that, whilst the narrator was lovely, I do feel that some of the more cheeky jokes were reduced in hilarity as the narrator didn’t seem natural when reading them. Thus the jokes felt forced and left the listener wondering if they were indeed jokes or more on the side of sarcasm.
A lovely, easy listen.

Good story, rather jarring performance

Good, gripping story - only slightly marred by some jarring mispronunciations and weird misplaced emphasis at times.

Mixed Feelings

Not exactly what I expected... though witty and fun I found it hard to follow on all the adventures of the main character. The ending happens so suddenly I wondered if the author has run out of paper. Nonetheless a fun read and great performance!

So relatable!!

As a 36 year old, with a colourful past myself, I could totally relate to the Author.
A honest insight into the life of a modern young woman finding her way in the world.
Lots of laughs but some sad moments too.
