BLURB: 

 

Meet Bridget Jones—a 30-something Singleton who is certain she would have all the answers if she could:

a. lose 7 pounds
b. stop smoking
c. develop Inner Poise
“123 lbs. (how is it possible to put on 4 pounds in the middle of the night? Could flesh have somehow solidified becoming denser and heavier? Repulsive, horrifying notion), alcohol units 4 (excellent), cigarettes 21 (poor but will give up totally tomorrow), number of correct lottery numbers 2 (better, but nevertheless useless)…”

Bridget Jones’s Diary is the devastatingly self-aware, laugh-out-loud daily chronicle of Bridget’s permanent, doomed quest for self-improvement — a year in which she resolves to: reduce the circumference of each thigh by 1.5 inches, visit the gym three times a week not just to buy a sandwich, form a functional relationship with a responsible adult, and learn to program the VCR.

REVIEW:

 

A work of epistolary fiction that follows the inner voice of Bridget Jones, a 30yo female in  the UK who is on a goal of self-improvement. This novel can speak to any young woman as it follows issues of the heart, waist circumference, diet and work.

Following the year long diary entries of Bridget gives the reader a close examination of the character as she tries desperately to turn her life into one she can be proud of. The antics that ensue are not only realistic but undeniably hilarious.

This novel can be seen to the a 1990’s retelling of Pride and Prejudice with Bridget starring as an awkward and not at all put-together Elizabeth. This was a relatable read full of uproarious situations on Bridget’s search for love.
