Rezension bezieht sich auf: Bridget Jones's Diary (Hörkassette)
Bridget Jones, while 30ish and single, struggles with a set of core issues that all women can identify with. Career stagnation, relationship problems, and body image, are colorfully, and humorously documented. No matter what age, marital status, or body type, most women who read this book will find herself repeatedly surprised to discover that her own inner struggles and thoughts are accurately voiced, or maybe may have a diary frighteningly similar to Bridget's. She has the ability, through her insightful excerpts to show how absurd life can be. The reader is inspired to wonder why we create such a chaotic, emotionally stressful life with our obsession for the superficial in this world. Why do we, especially women, value losing weight, getting a boyfriend, and "inner poise", rather than learning a new skill, helping other people, and spiritual growth? The goals that Bridget strives for and sometimes achieves are never fulfilling for her because they don't contribute to the intelligent,compassionate, giving person that Bridget sometimes is. Nevertheless, we don't judge Bridget. We laugh at her life's situations because they are so close to home.
In a world where obscure, unattainable things are worshipped, Bridget's life illustrates how we are easily confused as to what brings us true happiness. The book does not attempt to make a statement on women's issues, right or wrong. Instead, Bridget Jones Diary does a fabulous job at recapitulating the inner struggles of women living in commercial, modern society.
