Reviews

Bridget Jones takes us into her world of the 30-plus unmarried career woman. Her daily life is seen largely through her diary entries, which regularly include comments on her alcohol, cigarette, and calorie consumption. She chronicles her unending search for a lasting relationship with the right man while continuing to tolerate attempts by her parents and married friends to match her up with every available bachelor. At times Bridget contemplates a permanent single status as she also realizes that she must face the responsibility of taking part in solving her parents' problems as they once did for her. The often self-deprecating diary entries are both humorous and incisive. Barbara Rosenblat's lively narration does justice to Fielding's pointed dialog and the diverse personalities of Bridget's friends and family. A good commentary on contemporary life, this is recommended for adult fiction collections.--Catherine Swenson, Norwich Univ. Lib., Northfield, VT Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
