But, the premise that view spoiler [Mark Darcy is dead was a really stupid move. The reason why I read books is because I can only take so much and RT, and whoop, there it is for at least pages.

A whole generation of women, if not several generations, looked to Bridget Jones to make them feel that being a Colin Firth-adoring, messed-up single woman in her thirties was completely OK. md
Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy review: 'A Clunking disappointment'
Given that Hugh Grant dropped out of the project last fall, though, we figured that Dempsey might be filling the required Bridget Jones film role of tousle-haired bridgdt who tempts Bridge away from her more sincere love interest, Mark Darcy.
So full marks there. Fielding, I want to erase this book from my memory. Fielding enjoys milking all of these for comic possibilities, though Bridget's being such a technological late adopter makes a lot of the observational comedy sound dated. The International Herald Tribune reviewed the new column rather favourably, commenting that Fielding's satire was in good form.
Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding – review | Books | The Guardian
Back in the '90s, Bridget Jones was my homegirl. As Fielding said, "she's heading in a different direction.
The whole appeal of Helen Fielding's novels have been based on my absolute love for anything Jane Austen, and considering that Mr Darcy is "my guy", Pride and Prejudice retellings or modern remakes have always had a special place in my heart. Daniel Cleaver and Mark Darcy, respectively.
Time spent looking forward to joens Bridget Jones book: A complete edition of John James Audubon's world famous The Birds of America, bound in linen and beautifully presented in a special slipcase. I found the endless text speak, twittering etc very, very annoying and incredibly difficult to read, quite frankly Bridbet felt it was a lazy way of writing, and a means of padding. What nridget she thinking; 15 years, since the last book was published,18 years total, of Bridget te in Helen's head and she felt the latest instalment was up to scratch, the best idea she could come up with, that she was doing Bridget's character justice???
I wish Fielding's editor had trusted the "Bridget Jones generation", like me, to have grown up, too.
I do agree with some other reviewers that the end is a bit rushed, and tidied up to quickly, and we all know that with Bridget Jones, nothing is ever very tidy at all. It occasionally verges nearer the mummy porn angle at times - too much focus on the sex. Mad About the Boy Also Read.
Bridget's character in this book is completely unbelievable, very immature and totally one dimensional. The sentence "it's raining men" is actually in here.
As we watch her dealing with heartbreaking loss and rediscovering love and joy, Bridget invites us to fall for her all over again. Sure, maybe it took awhile brdget them to get it all together, but with all the previous mention of biological clocks, doesn't it seem like they would have tried for kids right away?
The novel is set in msd London; Bridget is 51, still keeping a diary, but is also immersed in texting and experimenting with social media. And as irrepressible as ever.
Best part of story, including ending: I'm not feeling it. Bridget Jones is back! Helen Fielding now says that she intends to bring Darcy back, in my opinion, this is backtracking and damage limitation as the backlash has been major.
It's as simple as that. Its funny, exciting and so easy to read. Number of days expected to take to read this book: Bridget has spawned so many imitators in the intervening years that all this ground feels very well trodden. I think so many women fell in love with the Bridget Jones books and the delightful movie versions because she allowed us to laugh at ourselves and our funny obsessions with dieting and men and self-improvement projects.

He's the love of our lives, the man of ths dreams and we all gave a big collective sigh when he and Bridget got together.
