What do you like about the book?
What I like is to read the struggles in the book. How Bridget it write in her diary is really funny to read! Sometimes you can read how much she is in love and other times she write about some low points in her life. Because it was a diary, it was easy to read so I was within a few days ready with reading.
What donât you like?
I donât like that Daniel Cleaver cheated on Bridget with another woman!!! I donât know and I donât understand why people do that. And Daniel was already engaged, that is really sad for Bridget, because she really likes him and he was the one for her until she finds out that he was cheating.
What part, fragment, did you particularly like? Explain why.
The part when Mark and Bridget are back again together. Because Mark is a really nice and proper. He is a guy who will never cheat on her! So when I read the were a couple.
What is the âproblemâ in the story? Is the problem solved? How, or why not?
Bridget is single and she is kind of âhopelessâ. Then she met two guys. She fall in love with her boss but he cheated on her and she also fall in love with Mark, she met him at a party from her parents. (because her parents, special report: her mother, wanted that Bridget met Marcy!)
How would you deal with the problem?
I would be hopeless. I think I will met the right guy at the right moment. Maybe I would go more out with friends of go to the city so I can met more guys. I wouldnât stay days home and be obsessed with food, drank and cigarettes!
