READER Í Mad About the Boy ↠ Helen Fielding

Mad About the BoyOndon in the s was a huge international bestseller published in countries and selling over million copies worldwide Its seuel Bridget Jones The Edge of Reason published soon after was also a major international bestseller Both were made into films starring Renée 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 uirky 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 dating and parenthood The book made me laugh out loud several times and I often found myself smiling while I readThe novel opens with Bridget excited about dating a younger man and writing a screenplay in addition to being a single parent of two children As you may have already heard and which is revealed early in the book Bridget's husband the wonderful Mr Mark Darcy was killed in an accident while working in Africa and now she is finally coming out of her grief and depression to start dating againI 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 It was smart of Helen Fielding to update the story because that generation of women has matured and now has other issues to deal with and who better to help us cope with laughter than our dear old friend BridgetOne new thing that Bridget tries is social media She opens a Twitter account and uickly gets obsessed with how many followers she has She feels pressure to tweet clever things and then embarrassment after tweeting while drunk And when she meets a young man on Twitter she likes to flirt with she learns how much fun texting can beThe fantastic thing about texting is that it allows you to have an instant intimate emotional relationship giving each other a running commentary on your lives without taking up any time whatsoever or involving meetings or arrangements or any of the complicated things which take place in the boring old non cyber world Apart from sex it would be perfectly possible to have an entire relationship that is much closer and healthier than many traditional marriages without actually meeting in person at allIn addition to the humor of modern life there is also a sweet side to the story Bridget genuinely loved her husband and was devastated by his death Her plans for self improvement and forced cheerfulness are so touching because she is desperately trying to be a good mum to her kids even though she'd rather stay in bed wallow in her grief and eat chocolate ice creamIf you enjoyed the first two Bridget Jones books you will probably like this one There is humor there is romance and there is even a happy ending I declare it to be v v good

Bridget Jones is backGreat comic writers are as rare as hen's teeth And Mad About PDF or 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 something singleton in L Number of days expected to take to read this book 1 number of days actually took to read this book 9 number of times expected to be able to put down this book 0 number of times actually put down this book 100I loved Bridget Jones; I avidly read the weekly column before the books came out and excitedly awaited the release of the third book As all fans are aware Bridget's appeal was that women whatever their background could identify with her Sadly this is no longer the case she is a wealthy widow does not work her ludicrous attempts at screenwriting can't be counted as work and they most definitely can't be counted as being funny has a nanny and a cleaner yet constantly whinges about her hectic life easily loses 3 stones in 13 weeks and bags herself a toyboy 21 years her junior Most of us would struggle to relate to her and this perhaps reflects the probability that Helen Fielding's life now is very far removed from that of most women The thirty something Bridget was imperfect insecure and loveable; the 51 year old Bridget is just a silly mare who needs a bloody good talking to by someone who lives in the real world as opposed to her once entertaining ridiculous friends Had Mark Darcy lived it's very difficult to imagine that he would have put up with such an annoying creature This is the main reason that the book just doesn't work the others being that the attempts at amusing social commentary about matters such as competitive parents and domestic technology have been done before and that the book has obviously been written with the film in mind Up until the last 50 pages I was going to rate it 2 stars v generous owing to nostalgia However as the predictable ending with its clumsy parallel with 'Pride and Prejudice' yet another one unfolded I nearly threw the book on the fire and so could only award it 1 star
