¿Queda alguien que no conozca a Bridget Jones de Helen Fielding?

Bridget Jones’s Diary

Bridget Jones’s Diary is the devastatingly self-aware, laugh-out-loud daily chronicle of Bridget’s permanent, doomed quest for self-improvement—a year in which she resolves to: reduce the circumference of each thigh by 1.5 inches, visit the gym three times a week not just to buy a sandwich, form a functional relationship with a responsible adult—and learn to program the VCR.

Over the course of the year, Bridget loses a total of 72 pounds but gains a total of 74. She remains, however, optimistic. Through it all, Bridget will have you helpless with laughter, and—like millions of readers the world round—you’ll find yourself shouting, “Bridget Jones is me!”

Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason

Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason is another laugh-out-loud look at the life of 90’s Everywoman Bridget Jones. Picking up where the blockbuster bestselling Bridget Jones’s Diary left off, The Edge of Reason finds Bridget ensconced in an up and down relationship with Mark Darcy, whom she finally decided to give a chance at the end of the first book. Bridget’s best Singleton pals Jude and Shaz are on hand to dispense advise about men and relationships culled from the pages of GETTING THE LOVE YOU WANT and KEEPING THE LOVE YOU FIND, with unfortunate results. And Bridget’s Smug Married friend Magda still mixes phone calls with friends with instructions shouted at her kids: “Bridget, hi! I was just ringing to say in the potty! Do it in the potty!” Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason has all the charm and hearty laughs that made Diary such a smash.

Olivia Joules no es Bridget Jones pero no deja de ser muy divertida además de ser mucho más aventurera.

Adele Parks, Game Over

I’m as hard as nails on the outside. Scratch the surface and I’m as hard as nails on the inside. Impenetrable. Well, emotionally impenetrable, not the other. Not frigid. Technically, I guess, for want of a more user-friendly term, I’m a slapper.

Cas Perry’s self-portrait is astute. Since her father deserted the family home when she was only seven, Cas has led a life “awash with cynicism, constraint and calculation”. As she points out, the psychology isn’t difficult to figure–to protect herself from being betrayed again, she “dumps before she’s damaged.” And there are plenty of men queuing up to be dumped–what with her glamorous job and “sexy, cool, flawless” looks, Cas normally has charge of the relationship reins, until she meets Darren. A breathtakingly beautiful tree-surgeon, with long gypsy hair and a set of teeth the Osmonds would be proud of, Darren looks as if he has just what it takes to smash through her tough-gal stance.

Game Over is a saucy twist on the twentysomething girl-meets-boy fiction that has bombarded our bookshops recently. Cas is an exhilaratingly unconventional female protagonist and it’s refreshing to read a city-girl novel about a woman who is trying her hardest not to find Mr Right. That said, there’s also a comforting predictability about her–just like the hero (yes male) in a Mills and Boon romance, it’s inevitable that Cas will “submit” to love. The question is will Darren be interested when she does. Like Adele Parks’ debut novel Playing Away, Game Over looks set to be another winner.
