Publisher's Summary

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.

Funny and moving

A funny but at times moving book.

The diary twitter messages does not translate well to audio. Which was a little annoying.

Well read and some smashing laugh out loud moments and to fair a few tears.

Wasn't convinced...

It's taken ages for me to listen to this, I was convinced this wasn't for me... why would mark die!!! its wrong. So I started this thinking the voice was too old and she's acting too young, I didn't feel her emotions for the kids or for her deceased husband... well suddenly little parts were funny, and slowly I got hooked... The scene where she's sad about mark had me balling my eyes out and I just couldn't put it down until I'd read it all. BJ is just as erratic as ever and I think it's exactly what she'd be like at 50... and the ending was lovely. I recommend reading this with an open mind... and if you have an open mind then I recommend you read this...

Gah!

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.
