When Helen Fielding first wrote Bridget Jones' Diary, charting the life of a 30-something singleton in London in the 1990s, she introduced audiences to one of the most beloved characters in modern literature. The book was published in 40 countries, sold more than 15 million copies worldwide, and spawned a best-selling sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason.
The two books were turned into major blockbuster films starring Renée Zellweger, Hugh Grant, and Colin Firth. With her hotly anticipated third instalment, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy, Fielding introduces us to a whole new enticing phase of Bridget's life set in contemporary London, including the challenges of maintaining sex appeal as the years roll by and the nightmare of drunken texting, the skinny jean, the disastrous email CC, total lack of twitter followers, and TVs that need 90 buttons and three remotes to simply turn on.
An uproariously funny novel of modern life, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy is a triumphant return of our favourite Everywoman.

"This did not disappoint"
As a huge fan of the first 2 books, which are well weathered after ready several times over the past 15+ years, I was very much looking forward to this book. Finally finding time for it whilst decorating, there I was paint brush in hand chuckling away, & remembering how alike Bridget and I are. This book has a different feel to the first 2 (understandably as set 2 decades later), but the story is still very Bridget. For any fans of the first 2 this book is a must read!
Great 3rd installment of Bridgets life and loves! Read beautifully by the sublime Samantha Bond and laugh out loud funny...one thing though...if you listen to it on the bus, be prepared for strange looks from the general public as you giggle uncontrollably!
"Listened to audible 3, Reviews 1!!!"
Had fun listening!! The narrator Samantha Bond was brilliant and makes me want to listen all over again.🎉🎊😎
"got there in the end!"
Took some time to get into this. Originally not too sure about the voice over but got into it after a few chapters and enjoyed.
