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....

Another diary of Bridget Jones

It just wasn't for me. I've heard these stories before and there was nothing new. I didn't find it engaging either. At first, it was hilarious but then the story just became sad and repetitive. Maybe for a Sunday read...

Narrator was awesome

First book with the author and listened to the end because I hate not knowing what happens but it’s far too whingy for me. The constant droning on about her bad choices was too much. There was probably about 5 solid pieces of information about her life that had all the frills added to it to make a book.
