Abstract

Chick lit is a modern literature that achieves its success since the presence of Bridget Jone’s Diary in a newspaper in the UK. Originally, the story is underestimated but extremely affecting many metropolitan women in the UK at the time. The influence and the fever spread throughout the world, especially America. Eventually, many chick lit piece of work become a great success and offer help to provide the identity for woman who live in big cities; those who are successful, fashionable, independent and single. This success also is supported by a rapid response from the film industry to sell the chick lit as the theme in their movies. Admittedly, these so called literary works that can be finished in one read are packed so enjoyable and entertaining. Yet, the question then appears when there is a shifting way and process of the metropolitan women in seeking their indentity.
