n the course of the year recorded in Bridget Jones's Diary, Bridget confides her hopes, her dreams, and her monstrously fluctuating poundage, not to mention her consumption of 5277 cigarettes and Fat units 3457 (approx.) (hideous in every way). In 365 days, she gains 74 pounds. On the other hand, she loses 72! There is also the unspoken New Year's resolution--the quest for the right man. A dazzling urban satire of modern human relations? An ironic, tragic insight into the demise of the nuclear family? Or the confused ramblings of a pissed thirty-something?Celebrating 40 years of outstanding international writing, this is one of the essential Picador novels reissued in a beautiful new series style.
This is THE book for any single person to read, laugh at and generally have a wonderful time. Fielding writes in such a relatable way, you will be breezing through Bridget's diary as you laugh and cry with her.
