Title Profile & Character Information

Bridget Jones's Diary

Annotation
"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."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
