I loved both the Bridget Jones novels and found them to be hysterically funny. Bridget is a young Londoner who lives alone. She keeps a daily diary where she keeps track of her fluctuating weight, how many cigarettes she smoked and how much alcohol she consumed. She keeps track of attempts to get a boyfriend (there are romances in this book) and ploys to advance in her job. Bridget is always getting herself into embarassing situations--like dressing as a Playboy bunny for a annual costume party at her parents house. Somehow she missed the fact that the costume component had been cancelled. So there she is with the elderly in her skimpy costume trying to make conversation. Completely written in the style of a diary, the book is great fun and Bridget is a charming, self-effacing heroine.
I have to say, I loved this book. It is like a modern Pride and Prejudice, but a bit easier to relate to. Bridget's dinner with all her married friends, her somewhat successful calorie-counting, mistaken office romance and other single friends ready to back her up, even with nonsensical advice....I could totally recognize myself! And laugh, which was great. The follow-up didn't do as much for me, but this was very funny. Chick-lit? Sure, but with the redeeming value of being as funny as Austen (if less....clever) and the gooey romance doesn't hit until the very, very end.
