    Story
    "at last Bridget is back"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy to be better than the print version?

    was really great to just sit back and listen to the book. with the print version have to sometimes go back and re read a sentance but listening to the audio was much easier for me to follow.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy?

    when she finally got together with the teacher. the discription of him reminds me of my old games teacher!

    wanted to but didnt have the time. listened to it whenever I could and couldnt wait for the next installent.

    Story
    "Wonderfully read but a little predictable"
    Would you listen to Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy again? Why?

    I will listen to this audio book again as it was very entertaining and did make me laugh out loud once or twice.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I enjoyed listening to Bridget learning about modern tech such as twitter. The book seemed however to be a little slow in the middle and I felt like fast forwarding certain parts.


    Have you listened to any of Samantha Bond’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Not before.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    To text or not to text that is the question.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth listening to and nice for relaxing to. Easy to dip in and out of.

    Story
    "Bit like Bridget Jones in the big brother house..."
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not as flowing as the film, didn't read the books.


    Has Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy put you off other books in this genre?

    No

    The best scene was when the small boy came into her bedroom and Bridget was in a 'situation' with her new boyfriend , in a compromising position.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I got fed up with the time line all the time


    Any additional comments?

    Would not be enough storyline to make a film.

    If you like the original Bridget Jones, then you will like this! Its the same old Bridget, just 20 years on...

    Bridget and Rockster being interrupted in the middle of some nighttime gymnastics by Bridget's eldest child Billy.

    Yes, I listen to books to help me drift off to sleep, and this did not do the job! All I wanted to do was stay up and listen.

    "Brilliant!"
    If you could sum up Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy in three words, what would they be?

    A fantastic journey of adult life.


    What other book might you compare Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy to, and why?

    The book is comparable to its predecessors and surpasses them if possible.


    What does Samantha Bond bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Fantastic expression of characters and feeling.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book made me feel like, 'its not just me'. The characters and feelings are all those that as human beings we all feel in some way, and expresses how although things are sent to try us, we can overcome anything.

    Brilliant listen, will be listening to it again and again x

    Story
    "Entertaining listen, will be forgotten in a week"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Book was entertaining for most of the time but in some moments the main character seems a bit exaggerated with her nativity and silliness. The book is gripping enough to listen but leaves no great impression and is for sure not as big a hit as the first one.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Develop more details of the romantic thread with mr w.


    What about Samantha Bond’s performance did you like?

    Great narration. Characters were very well performed. Strong side of this audiobook.


    Was Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy worth the listening time?

    Yes if you're after a light entertainment

    "Enjoyable"
    What made the experience of listening to Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy the most enjoyable?

    Bridget's hilarious personality


    What did you like best about this story?

    Uncovering what had happened since the second book


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Samantha Bond?

    I wouldn't search for one narrated by her, but i wouldn't mind listening to her voice again. She portrayed Bridget well anyway


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud quite a lot and felt the lump in my throat when uncovering some bits of the story


    Any additional comments?

    So at first I felt like I couldn't listen to the audiobook after just the first chapter after having watched the films with Renée Zellweger. It was strange adjusting to a new voice and didn't feel right at first. I also panicked thinking I had missed a book in between due to such a jump in the stories.
    I decided to carry on listening and glad that I did as once the story started to unravel I found myself laughing out loud and wondering what happens next every time I put it down.
    My friend also felt the same and wasn't going to carry on until I advised her that she should and now she enjoys it too!

    "Tremendous fun!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The Bridget Jones stories are such an easy going fun read that you can listen to them absolutely anywhere. Bridget is a heart-warmingly normal and sympathetic character.


    What other book might you compare Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy to, and why?

    Obviously the first two Bridget Jones books. This is essential reading for any fan.


    What about Samantha Bond’s performance did you like?

    Samantha Bond reads this exactly as I imagined Bridget would be now that she is in her fifties. Still so young at heart, though!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Of course. It was infectious!


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it!
