A dazzling urban satire of modern human relations? An ironic, tragic insight into the demise of the nuclear family? Or the confused ramblings of a pissed thirty-something? The third installment in Bridget Jones' journey, Mad About the Boy, will be out in October 2013.

"A brilliant evocation of life as a single girl in a certain time... reads like Anita Loos out of Jane Austen, and any woman who has ever had a job, a relationship or indeed a mother will read it and roar" (The Times)
"I cannot recommend a book more joyfully... Hilariously funny, miraculously observed, endlessly touching" (Daily Telegraph)
"Wild comedy... observed with merciless, flamboyant wit. A gloriously funny book" (Sunday Times)
I have not listening to Imogene Church before this, but absolutely loved her Bridget.
I've read this book several times, usually following some other heavy tome I wanted to rinse from my head. It's just a good bit of fun, certainly not intellectual, but a light-hearted way to pass time. And, if you think about it, you either know someone who somehow resembles Bridget or maybe you see a little of yourself in her.
Always loved this book, and was very excited to have an unabridged audiobook available. Superbly narrated by Imogen Church. A modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice incorporating the neurotic thoughts of a single thirtysomething women just looking for happiness. Warm and charming and laugh out loud funny - a fantastic piece of escapist fiction.
"superbly funny - story and narration"
I never read the print version, its only because it was available in audio that I actually read/listen to the book. Would not read the book as like my memory of Imogen doing Bridget
Bridget JOnes Diary - Edge of Reason, as they are part of the same series. Haven't read/listened to any other books like this
As above, but I intend to listen to more of her work - totally amazed by her performances - superb
Here she goes again
thanks to Imogen's amazing narration, I now prefer her version of Bridget to the famous Renee Zelwegger's film version of her charactor
