The continuing story of Bridget Jones and her diary saga was not really enticing as the first. There were moments when I had to literary drag myself to read about her moans and groans and whinnies... No woman whines so much as Bridget in my opinion. She got a perfectly good man and then her insecurities gets the better of her, namely Rebecca. She nearly gets raped by her previous boyfriend / boss, Daniel and ends up in a Thai jail for drug possession. This part of the book resembled so much the Australian mini-series, 'Bangkok Hilton' starring Nicole Kidman. The book looked as if it was hashed together to the fans of the first book. Fielding in doing this lost the charm of the first book, the magic, the allure... Where in the first book Bridget's whines about her weight, her job, her mom resembled real life, problems that real women do face, the second book just made those problems a mockery to the world. Read the book only if you really want to... the film is much more entertaining in my opinion...
