I enjoyed having a protagonist I bridgft and it was a nice fun read. One thing I got out of this.
I just wasted my Saturday afternoon. The only parts that I actually liked were when she stepped into the shoes and became someone else. It was pretty bad.
So why did I continue reading it? What bfidget you think of it? It was that bad. Is that all you have to say? What about the writing? I finished it, so the fact that I could finish it should be a good sign right?
What about the characters? I liked all none of the characters. They all just annoyed me, they were either too good or too bitchy. I guess I kind of did like the step mum. Overall, I have no clue who I would recommend it to. Not anyone really unless you want to waste a few hours of your life. Dec 07, Laura Kreitzer her it liked it Shelves: Hence my three-star rating.
The main character, Bridget, is a spoiled, controlling bitch. Let me give you an example. Because of that, her stepmother has become, basically, her sole guardian. This woman is sweet, kind, and always pleasant to her—overly even. How anyone can be that blatantly mean blows my mind.
I understand that her behavior was necessary so the author could get to the premise of the book: Was it well written? The reason I wanted to read this book was because of how it was projected to me through the summary. Bridget has to literally step into the shoes of those she has hurt and relive her snideness through them.
This part of the book was my favorite. We get to see all these different points-of-view; this is where the book really picked up. Then came the decision. Or judgment, if you will. This part I felt was rushed but I enjoyed it nonetheless. And there was even a nice little twist at the end!
Overall, this book was enjoyable. View all 7 comments. Dec 28, Isamlq rated it it was ok Shelves: Oh, to describe Bridget.
Or just plain old mean. Reading of her exploits reminded me of Lohan in Mean Girls. The similarity ends there because bidget the movie entertained me… had me laughing and empathizing with where the meannies were coming from, Bridget was another matter altogether. In the Oh, to describe Bridget. IMO, the redemption part came a bit late; her meanness had been drummed into my head too effectively.
My dislike for her had become too well-entrenched. The big comeuppance that I expected did not materialize. I thought the ending was too pat. And while the book isn’t terrible because there were parts that did work I’d go for something else especially if you’re after a bad girl learns to better her ways.
I really, really loved this book. I was a bit concerned that it would be hard to like given that the main character acts so badly for the first half but it seriously surprised me. In no time at all, I found myself empathising with Bridget and willing everything to work out for her. When Bridget crashes her car in a fit of madness, she’s sent to a boardroom full of people she has terrorized during her life.
From there, she literally steps into the shoes of the people she has wronged and sees hers I really, really loved this book. From there, she literally steps into the shoes of the people she has wronged and sees herself from their perspective. I’ll admit, it did get a bit tedious having to go through the same scenes again but that is the only fault I can find in this novel. The writing is great and the idea is interesting.
It kept me on the edge until the very last page- which ended the book nicely, thankfully. It also made me laugh a few times. Overall, a delightful and witty book that certainly deserves five stars in my opinion. I can totally see why people wouldn’t like this but I personally really did.

The characters nridget this annoyed me quite a few times, so I can’t say I liked them.
paigs There were a few parts in this where I felt a bit bored, but it was an okay read overall. It was unsettling to hear my voice. Just like listening to an answering machine recording of your voice gridget realizing that you sound almost exactly like Kermit the Frog. Instead I looked a lot like deer in headlights. Jan 21, Beth Harbison rated it it was amazing. Bridget’s supposed to be a bitch.
That’s the whole point.
It’s a tale of redemption. So my question to anyone who didn’t like Bridget is this: But book production schedules run at about two years and that book hasn’t been out one year yet, so any similarities are coincidental.
