Summary

The real Bridget Jones. Bryony Gordon survived her adolescence by dreaming about the life she'd have in her 20s: the perfect job; the lovely flat; the amazing boyfriend.

The reality was something of a shock. Her Telegraph column was a diary of her daily screw-ups; she lived in a series of squalid shoe boxes; and her most meaningful relationship of the entire decade was with a Marlboro Light.

Here in the Sunday Times best-selling The Wrong Knickers, Bryony busts open the glamorized myth of what it means to be a young (perpetually) single girl about London town and shares the horrible and hilarious truth. The truth about picking up a colleague at the STI clinic; sinking into debt to fund a varied diet of wine, crisps, and vodka; and how it feels when your dream man turns out to be a one-night stand who hands you someone else's knickers in the morning.

Bryony's wonderfully ridiculous and ultimately redemptive story is essential listening for everyone whose 'best years' weren't quite what they were expecting....

Woman’s issues solved by man and baby…

Her life issues appear to be instantly resolved by meeting a nice man and getting pregnant. Hmmmm… a bit of an old clichéd trope isn’t it? That’s the solution to a troubled 20’s, a nice man will bring you the self esteem you lack? It won’t come from your own work on yourself? As profound and deep as a puddle

Could do better

Came to this after reading her book on giving up alcohol, which I found brilliant. This however is honest but far more "chick lit" and Bridget Jonesy. Full of unnecessary superlatives and over written. Perhaps the narrator was too immature In her delivery

Sobering

Come to think of it, this was my first female narrated audiobook, and what a knockout listen.Wonderfully delivered by Sophie's sultry voice.
The story in itself written with no plugs.l, all details delivered wonderfully by Ms Bleasdale. Recommended? Abso-bloody-lutely
