Helen Fielding.

helen-fielding-1000465

A British Author who has written 5 books and co-screen written 2 movies. Her books are considered as “Chick Lit” and “Brit Lit” genres. They are a bit funny in my opinion. I’ve read 3 of her books and v.m. (very much) enjoyed them (Bridget Jones 1 and 2, and Olivia Joules and The Overactive Imagination). The third book of the Bridget Jones trilogy (Mad About the Boy) I will definitely read soon. And Cause Celeb (Helen’s first book) is waiting to by read too, while collecting dust in my physical bookshelf.

One of Helen’s books is Bridget Jones’s Diary. A book that is considered to best define the 20th Century for thirty-something single women. This book, I think and have even noticed, has created a character stereotype fallowing.

I don’t think any of them can compare to the epistolary writing like Helen’s. She had abbreviations for everything and still made it fine for us to understand the character’s chain of thoughts. Of course other authors before and after Helen has used this style of writing. At the time the book was released, I really felt connected to Bridget. V.G. (very good).

Other books I liked now that are a little like Bridget and Helen’s writing…
