    One thought on “Tabloid Love: Looking for Mr. Right in All the Wrong Places, A Memoir”

    1. An ok read - didn't realize this was a memoir until a few pages in (despite A MEMOIR emblazoned on the front cover - duh). Bridget moves from London to NYC in her mid-20's through the NY Post's exchange program with a sister newspaper in London. She intends to stay only for 4 months, but ends up staying longer than that. Bridget is beset by dating troubles from page 1, but none of her tales were especially hilarious. It was entertaining in a sanitized Sex in the City sort of way, with a bit of L [...]

    2. As Candace Bushnell says on the jacket, it's real-life Bridget Jones meets Sex and the City. Bridget Harrison is a nearly 30-something Brit with a self-deprecating sense of humor who decides to give working in New York City for the New York Post a chance, and maybe find love in the process. The story's not quite as tightly woven as real life, but it's still fascinating to learn about her life as a tabloid reporter in New York in the early 2000s (yes, she covered 9/11), as well as a dating column [...]

    3. *contains spoilers*I don't know. I'm just a sucker for happy endings and I guess without one, this book seemed pointless. That is why it is real life though, right? If it were fiction that last scene when Jack told her he never cared for a woman the way he cared for her would have been the moment they got back together. But no such luck in this 'memoir.' Kind of depressing, if you ask me. She tries to make it seem all victorious that she is single at the end. But after reading 300 plus pages of [...]

    4. Just finished this book, and I really enjoyed it. Bridget got me thinking about my life, and choices. When you read about someone trying to be brave, it makes you want to be brave too. I also found myself really relating to her. She really is sort of Carrie Bradshaw meets Bridget Jones. I love her style and voice. She's not only witty and intelligent, but really awkward, brave, adventurous, and a hot messl at once. The only problem with the book was the end. I wasn't ready for it to be over, and [...]

    5. some things you read only because you come across them for free (free!) on the street and occasionally the mood strikes for junk reading. this (obviously) echoed sex and city and she acknowledges this, but is unable to offer anything beyond or different from what carrie bradshaw offers, and fails to even achieve those occasional moments of deep familiarity and insight that, yes, can be found in sex and the city. the fact that it also capitalizes on the author being a Brit named Bridget and attem [...]

    6. I enjoyed reading this book. It was fun, it took me about the rough equivalent of three round trip subway journeys from Midtown to Brooklyn to finish, and it was exactly the fluffy break I was looking for between rafts of non-fiction. But that's all I'll say for it. Though non-fiction itself, the book lives up to its back cover review - it is Sex and the City meets Bridget Jones (even her name is Bridget), but it seems not to have much of the joy of either and it does have all of their cliches ( [...]

    7. In this memoir, Bridget wants to be a reporter and moves from England to New York for 4 months on an exchange. In New York, she will be a reporter at the tabloid paper, the New York Post. She eventually gets herself a column on dating and being single in New York and stays for 5 years. This book tells of her life and work during this time. I enjoyed this. It's pretty light, but it was enjoyable to read. There was a mix of dating stories and stories of reporting. Simply because I can't relate, I [...]

    8. Anfangs war ich von dem Buch nicht so begeistert weil es sich anfangs schon sehr langgezogen hat und ein wenig langweilig war.aber das hat sich dann nach kurzer Zeit auch schon geändert. Auch wenn ich finde das Bridge manchmal zuviel Erfahrungen mit Männern gesammelt hat,fand ich die verschiedenen Männer-Storys sehr amüsant.Am meisten gefesselt hat mich die Bridge/Jack Liebesstory.Ich habe bis zum Ende mitgefiebert und habe gehofft das es vielleicht noch ein Comeback hätte geben können zwi [...]

    9. Candace Bushnell, author of Sex and the City, calls this book "A real-life Bridget Jones meets Sex and the City". Plus its based in NYC the greatest city in the world.-------------------------------------------------------------------I decided to start another easy read far its got me giddy!-------------------------------------------------------I struggled with sleep last night and actually finished this up at about 3am this morning. This book was an enjoyable read. The narrator ends with an upb [...]

    10. While the author tries very hard to end the story on a upbeat, positive note, I couldn't help but to mutter to myself "my god, that was bleak". I want to loan this book to my younger sister who lives and dates in New York but I'm quite afraid it will make her suicidal. All I know is I'm never moving back there again. I got 99 problems but dating in New York City ain't one.But I will say this. Bridget Harrison can write. She is funny and you do cheer for her, again and again.

    11. One of those books that I wish I could get back the time I spent reading it. Read the whole thing thinking she would finally realize what a self-absorbed moron she was being and I was profoundly disappointed that she never figured it out. Can only say the real life Jack got lucky that we got away from her. Mostly I am still amazed that there really are people out there that are that self-absorbed. If your into the single party life you might enjoy the book but definitely wasn't for me.

    12. This book is a mix of Sex and the City and Bridget Jones. It tells the story of a young woman who leaves Great Britain to go and work at a famous New York newspaper. Her dream is to be an important journalist and she does everything to accomplish her dreams. I liked this book a lot because it is easy to feel in the shoes of the main character. I read is in only a few days and enjoyed it a lot. (I read it in German.)

    13. I actually really enjoyed this book! It was funny, entertaining, and I could totally relate! I was hoping that in the end Bridget would find the one, and was a little disappointed that she didn't. But her journey is one im sure a lot of us could relate to! From horrible first dates, to being stood up, to ruining relationshipswe've all been there!

    14. An enjoyable balance of dating memoir/single-girl-in-the-city vignettes plus an inside look at what it takes to work for a big-name tabloid newspaper, covering heavier topics than you'd imagine based on the cover image. Approachable, chatty writing style, but never vapid. Wanted to hear what happened next when I reached the end (sequel??).

    15. I didn't hate it. And it is very much a Bridget Jones meets Sex and The City.I embraced the ending though tended to feel the main characters antics at her job were more interesting than this alleged quest for Mr. Right.I would question the cover's promise that it's this season's must-have beach accessory. I feel there are trashier and/or more funny books deserving of that moniker.

    16. Once again, I'm a sucker for a young New York gal making her way in the big bad city, but this time around, I barely got 50 pages in before losing interest. The writing isn't funny, smart, or insightful enough to make such a cliche story work. At best, it's mildly amusing every five pages or so.

    17. I absolutely loved this book. It was an easy, light and fun read. I found myself relating to so much of what she wrote about, that I couldn't help but wonder if I was reading my own diary of thoughts at times. I highly recommend this book - especially to single 30-something females.

    18. This is a fantastic book. Not only does she do an amazing job describing her own story of being single in New York (in a Carrie Bradshaw sorta way), but she also goes into her experience during 9/11 and the way it affected the city. This book is a very quick read, and also very relate-able.

    19. This is an easy enough book to read, but even though it's real life, it seems far too much like Bridget Jones.You do feel for Bridget though and you do want her to succeed but it's not a gripping novel. It's pretty basic.

    20. I enjoyed this memoir, it made me feel a lot better about being single in my late 20s. Though most of it is set in NYC, it's fairly universal (though maybe Boston is more similar to NYC than most would care to admit).

    21. I would really give this book a 3 1/2. It's an easy chick-lit read. Bridget Harrison is amusing in her accounts of finding love in the big city. It's also interesting to see New York from an outsider's perspective.

    22. if Bridget Jones was a real person and she lived in New York, this would be her bio. Hilarious and heart breaking at the same time.

    23. Memoir meets chick-lit. 20-something Brit chick goes to Manhattan to work as a reporter for the New York Post. Not great literature by any stretch of the imagination, but it was a light, fun read.
