Newly released movie tie-in edition!
Meet Bridget Jones -- a 30-something Singleton who is certain she would have all the answers is she could:
a) lose 7 pounds
b) stop smoking
c) develop Inner Poise
Here is the laugh-out-loud daily chronicle of a hilarious year in the life of the devastatingly self-aware Bridget Jones; 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, and form a functional relationship with a responsible adult.
Bridget struggles to keep her life on an even keel -- or at least afloat. Whenever her plans meet with disaster, 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 and totally alcohol, calorie, and perverted-misogynist free.
Bridget Jones's Diary will make you like yourself for precisely those things you're most ashamed of. And through it all, Bridget Jones will have you helpless with laughter, and shouting,
"Bridget Jones is me!"
Helen Fielding's novel Bridget Jones's Diary had its start as a weekly newspaper column. It is now a major motion picture from the producers of Four Weddings and a Funeral.
