Mad About the Boy (Bridget Jones, #3) by Helen Fielding

Into the Wild

Mad About the Boy (Bridget Jones, #3) Read Online Free - Bridget Jones is back!

Great comic writers are as rare as hen's teeth. And Helen is one of a very select band who have created a character of whom the very thought makes you smile. Bridget Jones' Diary, charting the life of a 30-something singleton in London in the 1990s was a huge international bestseller, published in 40 countries and selling over 15 million copies worldwide. Its sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, published soon after was also a major international bestseller. Both were made into films starring Renée Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth.

Set in the present, the new novel will explore a different phase in Bridget's life with an entirely new scenario. As Helen Fielding has said: "If people laugh as much reading it as I am while writing it then we'll all be very happy."

Dear Ms. Fielding, I want to erase this book from my memory. I read it, and, despite the plot, the scenes are good, the writing is fine, funny, and sometimes sad. But, the premise that (view spoiler)[Mark Darcy is dead was a really stupid move. Mark and Bridget are interesting enough that you didn't have to kil... (hide spoiler)]

(view spoiler)[ I was so excited about this book, and even hearing the Big Spoiler about Mark Darcy did not dim my enthusiasm... (hide spoiler)]

When I heard that Helen Fielding had written a third book about Bridget Jones, I was a bit perplexed because I wasn't sure whether the quirky antics of the scattered, 30-something Bridget would still be amusing in a 50-something mother. But it was surprisingly fun to read about her adventures in...

I preordered it! So excited. It's ridiculous how people judge the book without reading it... The ratings should be blocked until the release... I just read it! I love that Bridget still is the same beloved and funny Bridget we met before. I enjoyed her toy boy adventure, I really love the characte...

**Spoiler Alert Rarely have a seen a set of reviews as inconsistent as those for Helen Fielding's latest installment in the Bridget Jones saga, Mad About the Boy. I assume that much of the hostility derives from Fielding's decision to do away with the beloved Mark Darcy in a horrible accident, and...

No, not as disappointing as Stephen King's newer sequel, "Dr. Sleep." But boy does the minutiae build up quickly to a bunch of nothingness-- not even contemporary British stuff is of any interest here. No, but Fielding SHOULD be commended for killing off a perennial favorite, vaulting our cute Br...

I wasn't going to read this book. (view spoiler)[Mark Darcy is dead and as my favourite character it didn't seem worth the grief (hide spoiler)] However, as release date neared, I found myself (view spoiler)[wanting to know how it happened to make sure it was fitting to his character and him as a man... and then I'd go back to pretending it...

Diabolical. Lovable, cuddly, foot-in-mouth, just-the-way-you-are Bridget is long gone. In her place is a 51 year old widow obsessed with finding a man (yes, still,- and while we're on the subject, what kind of a name is Roxster?!), losing weight (yes, still, - a referral to an obesity clinic at a...

I found the endless text speak, twittering etc very, very annoying and incredibly difficult to read, quite frankly I felt it was a lazy way of writing, and a means of padding. Bridget's character (in this book) is completely unbelievable, very immature and totally one dimensional. Extremely poor ch...
