Hard to say which is more tedious, the book, or the movie. American film, so more shagging in the book I guess. Ultimately though, I have no reason to be interested in this apart from the guy breaks down in truck part. Then has an affair with a woman who is unhappy where she is, but stays. So what?

Review by

This book was perfect for me in so many ways - I have now succeeded in reading a soppily romantic novel that can only really appeal to women who read mostly Cookson or Binchy; and doing so cost me no more than a long afternoon. That same day, I also read the equally short parody, "The Ditches..." by some anonymous ghostwriter. At least "Bridges" carries with it some literary merit.
