Bridget Jones, beloved singleton and global phenomenon, is back with a bump in Bridget Jones's Baby: The Diaries.
As Bridget careers toward baby deadline, a series of classic Bridget Jones moments finally leads her into pregnancy - but just not quite as intended. It's a pregnancy full of cheesy potatoes, outlandish advice from drunken singletons and smug mothers, chaos at scans and childbirth classes, high jinks and romance, joy and despair - but all of it dominated by the terribly awkward question: Who's the father?

I have read/listened to/watched every installment of this series with the exception of this book. I must admit, going in I was skeptical; knowing it had been written after Mad About The Boy... .but I truly lived it. the same endearing feeling was kept in this book and the author managed to leave it open for the final book to be made. I still cheered along, I still talked to myself as Bridget would....and I still hoped for her and Darcy's happy ending. Well done Mrs. Fielding
I was really afraid to hear the audio book because I loved the movie so much. What if the book tainted the movie or tainted my perception of a character? It's like when you found out about Mark Darcy in the third book ... that was a horrible day.
Verdict: I love the movie. I like the book. I don't know if I favor the movie instead of the book because the movie came out first but I really enjoyed the movie's story line. Patrick Dempsey's character was a breathe of fresh air. (The movie did follow some of the events and conversations in the book.)
"Bridget Jones's Baby: The Diaries" was a pleasant listen. I found myself laughing at times and hating Daniel as much as I did before. I'm still having a hard time believing though that Bridget would sleep with Daniel again after all that he put her through, not to mention what he put Mark Darcy through. I finished the audio book in an afternoon, while I was working on a work document (because the audio book is an easy listen - you don't need to be a genius to follow the story line while you're doing something else.)
