The multi-million copy number one bestseller.

Welcome to Bridget's first diary: mercilessly funny, endlessly touching and utterly addictive.

A dazzlingly urban satire on modern relationships?
An ironic, tragic insight into the demise of the nuclear family?
Or the confused ramblings of a pissed thirty-something?

As Bridget documents her struggles through the social minefield of her thirties and tries to weigh up the eternal question (Daniel Cleaver or Mark Darcy?), she turns for support to four indispensable friends: Shazzer, Jude, Tom and a bottle of chardonnay.

Helen Fielding's first Bridget Jones novel, Bridget Jones's Diary, sparked a phenomenon that has seen four books, newspaper columns and the smash-hit film series Bridget Jones's Diary, The Edge of Reason, Bridget Jones's Baby and Mad About the Boy.

I cannot recommend a book more joyfully . . . Hilariously funny, miraculously observed, endlessly touching.
Brilliant . . . any woman who has ever had a job, a relationship or indeed a mother will read it and roar.
Effortlessly addictive . . . presents a perfect zeitgeist of single female woes.
