MAD ABOUT THE BOY (Bridget Jones #3) by Helen Fielding

Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy - Helen Fielding

2,5 stars

First of all - (view spoiler)
Not good, not good at all.
Also, not sure why I bothered with spoiler tags. Everybody in a book world have heard about this blasphemy anyway.

Well, nothing I can do about it to correct this unjustice, so this leaves us with Bridget. We are fastforwarded five years A.M.D. (view spoiler) and Bridget is trying to manage her two young children, re-start career, have a relationship with 30-year old toyboy and deal with batshit crazy friends in her own charming way. As always. She still diets, counts alcohol units and makes to-do lists.

Bridget is older now (51 !!!) but not any wiser. Basically same old, same old with some new characters. Some LOL moments, lots of twitter and message chat, some house fires and happy ending.

I must say, I have always loved the Bridget-movies more than books. I think this one will look better on screen, too. Who knows.
