Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy
By Helen Fielding
Release Date: October 15, 2013Summary: 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."
Ahhhhhhh Bridget Jones! In a new book! It's been so long since a Bridget Jones book came out, so when I saw in a Barnes & Noble email that this was a new anticipated bestseller, I absolutely flipped out. I love Bridget Jones, so I seriously can't wait to see how this new one turns out :)
