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.

"Hash Tag !!!!"

This was an easy listening audio book that made me laugh and say 'nooooooo!!!' out loud :)
Great book - really enjoyed listening to it!
The I heart series
Yes she captured the character of Bridget Jones
Towards the end but I won't give it away!
"rather boring and hopeless"
it is not funny at all. poor storyline.
keep mark alive!
she was all right
"Bridgit at her best"
Long car journeys to work are made much more interesting. Has transformed my happiness.
Bridget stuck in a tree with her kids
Thinking about Mark on their wedding day
I was initially excited by the revival of one of my favourite characters from my 20's, but I unfortunately found the older Bridget to be self absorbed and not very charming. And I often found the narration irritating with the harsh "Gah's" and the silly childish interpretation of Mabel.
Having said that, the passing of Mark Darcy was handled well and my heart did ache for Bridget's memories.
"a bit strange really"
why did Helen fielding kill off Mark Darcey! Quite a sad tale for Bridgette Jones so the author could tell a tale of modern dating hell and loneliness, with the odd bit of humour.
but goes on about one subject person far too much. but I've listened to the other's so will carry on . great story though still
Overall a great book, helped my holiday sunbathing.
Ididn't like that she gave the daughter a lisp.
other than that brilliant! I recommend.
loved it. sorry that I've finished it. B Jones with kids is just great. V funny and the reading is excellent
