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?”

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.

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.
