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 4 out of 5 by from An hilarious and entertaining read Bridget Jones is back and single again! Her husband, Mark Darcy, passed away 5 years earlier, and she is raising their two children alone in London. As a single mom, Bridget has to deal with vomit, head lice, and other kid-related catastrophes, as well as with new technologies such as texting, Twitter and online dating. Life is hard, but she keeps “buggering on”. When she meets a hot younger man, she starts feeling alive again. Could this be a new beginning for the loveable “singleton”? Once I got over the shock that Mark Darcy was dead, I quite enjoyed the story. In fact, I don’t think there would have been a third book if Mark was still alive, as it would not have been as interesting a story. Reading the third installment of the Bridget Jones series feels like meeting with friends you haven’t seen for years. Bridget has the same pals with the addition of a couple more. The book is written as a diary and in the first person, like its predecessors. And as before, Bridget finds herself in hilarious predicaments. However, I thought it was odd that Daniel was godparent to her children. Would someone name an ex-boyfriend as a godparent, especially when this person is immature and untrustworthy? I wouldn’t in a million years leave my child alone with this guy! However, while the ending of the book was a bit predictable, it was nevertheless satisfying. Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy was a fun and entertaining read, and I think people who loved the first two books in the series will enjoy this one too. I wonder if a movie is in the works… If it is, I would love to see it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from meh I'm not yet done this novel; however, I find myself a little disappointed. It's not as good as the others. Hopefully it will get better before the end. I guess it's holding true to the old adage that a sequel is never as good as the original. Disappointing buy.
