|Plot Summary of Bridget Jones's Diary|
|"Bridget Jones' diary is the story of the eponymous Bridget as she searches for love, career satisfaction, and Inner Poise in the wilds of London. The plot, which is a riff on Pride and Prejudice, is totally unimportant - what is important is the humor, which is of the laugh-out-loud, gut-splitting kind. You don't have to be a Bridget, know a Bridget, or even like Bridget to love this novel - you just have to have a pulse and a sense of humor."
Ivy, Resident Scholar
|"Life is not what Bridget Jones thinks it should be. Her love life sucks, her mother's annoying, and the affair she was having with her boss has ended a bit dramatically, making her extremely uncomfortable with her job. Bridget hilariously regales the reader with tales of her everyday woes, her struggle to lose a few pounds and smoke a lot less, and her quirky family and friends."
Sarrah, Resident Scholar
|"Bridget Jones's Diary tells the story of Bridget Jones – a thirty-something Singleton – and her often doomed quest for self-improvement and finding Mr. Right.
Trapped between the freedom of being a Singleton, and the fear of being alone forever, Bridget suffers the torture of a workplace romance, the morning-after consequences of “turning self into wine-bag”, and the Smug Married question feared by all Singletons: “How's your love life?”
