When I first heard about this book, I thought it sounded terrible. What real woman keeps track of her weight, how many cigarettes she smokes and how much she drinks everyday and celebrates or mourns accordingly. But reading it I was very pleasently surprised. Bridget is an Everyperson, struggling every day to fit in and behave herself in a socially acceptable manner (thin, in control and so on). As the book progress she learns to be more comfortable with herself and thus, grows happier. (and she meets Mr. Darcy. That helps too).
