There are two Bridgets in this book: Fun bridget and annoying bridget. Fun Bridget is the Bridget of the interview, doing her best yet managing to do less than perfect. Annoying, even boring, Bridget: is "I'm enlightened" Bridget, who takes I don't know how many breaks through the book to ponder very silly things, things that we are already acquainted with from book one. It gets very repetitive.

I enjoyed the story, but was so bored by some of Bridget's meditations. Also could not care less about the whole Wellington subplot (or Bridget's parents sex life), and the last two chapters could have been reduced by half and nothing would be lost.

Loved the If poem tho'.
