Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy

by Helen Fielding

Knopf Canada | October 15, 2013 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.

Bridget Jones is back!
   When Helen Fielding first wrote Bridget Jones' Diary, charting the life of a 30-something singleton in London in the 1990s, she introduced readers 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 installment, 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 e-mail 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 favorite Everywoman.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The sad return of Bridget I had REALLY been looking forward to this book when it was announced in the summer that it was being released in the Fall, and then the spoiler about you know who dying came out and I was a little put off. I didn't know if I wanted to read THAT story.  I'm glad that I did buy it- if only to see the conclusion of Bridget's story. It was at times painful to read and a little immature but the story DID tug at my heart strings and I was able to see the Bridget that I enjoyed from oh so long ago.  I wish that Jamie Bridget's brother from the first two books was mentioned- it is like this book is the sequel to the movies. I wish that Shazzer was actually in this book and I wish that Helen Fielding would name secondary characters something other than Rebecca.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Welcome back Bridget! It is an entertaining and easy read. It helps to have read the previous Bridget Jones books in order to understand the story line and the characters in it. This book made my heart ache and laugh out loud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right back with Bridget Wow!  :) I'm not 51, nor do I have kids.  And yet, I was right there with Bridge the entire book.  I read it in 2 days.  I cried, I laughed, I felt her anxiety about whether she was raising the children properly, and I missed Mark with her.  Very very odd (brilliant!) to time travel like this with a character! Bridget with kids!! Who would have ever thought!  And she's remained entirely true to herself!   Bravo Helen Fielding!  Thank you for bringing Bridge back so beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mad about Bridget! I pre-ordered Helen Fielding's newest book along with Bridget Jones's Diary and Bridget Jones the Edge of Reason, not knowing quite what to expect.  Bravo!  Fielding has another winner with Bridget Jones Mad About the Boy. I did not want the book to end and was a bit sad when reading Bridget's last entry in her diary.  Hopefully Fielding will continue To breathe life into Bridget at least one more time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like being reunited with an old friend What can I say? Mad About the Boy was fabulous. It's great to see Bridget all grown up and dealing with the drama that comes with family, aging... and, of course, nits. I didn't want it to end.
