Bridget Jones's Diaryby Helen Fielding
Synopses & Reviews
Bridget Jones's Diary charts a devastatingly self-aware, hilarious year in the life of a thirty-something Singleton. Here is the daily chronicle of her permanent, doomed quest for self-improvement - a year in which she resolves to: reduce the circumference of each thigh by 1 1/2 inches, visit the gym three times a week not merely to buy a sandwich, form a functional relationship with a responsible adult, and not fall for any of the following: misogynists, megalomaniacs, people with girlfriends or wives, emotional fuckwits, alcoholics, workaholics, chauvinists, or perverts. And learn to program the VCR. Bridget struggles to keep her life on an even keel - or at least afloat. Whenever her plans meet with disaster, as they invariably do, she manages to pick herself up, go out on the town, and tell herself it will be all right in the morning, when life will definitely be different this time. Bridget Jones's Diary will make you like yourself for precisely those things you're most ashamed of.
The #1 national bestseller by Helen Fielding, author of the new novel Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy (October 2013)
Bridget Jones's Diary is the devastatingly self-aware, laugh-out-loud account of a year in the life of a thirty-something Singleton on a permanent doomed quest for self-improvement. Caught between the joys of Singleton fun, and the fear of dying alone and being found three weeks later half eaten by an Alsatian; tortured by Smug Married friends asking, "How's your love life?" with lascivious, yet patronizing leers, Bridget 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. With a blend of flighty charm, existential gloom, and endearing self-deprecation, Bridget Jones's Diary has touched a raw nerve with millions of readers the world round. Read it and laugh—before you cry, "Bridget Jones is me!"
The devastatingly self-aware, laugh-out-loud account of a year in the life of a thirty-something "singleton" on a permanent doomed quest for self-improvement.
