Bridget Jones, the
iconic character who sold fifteen million books worldwide, inspired a major
motion picture franchise, and became beloved as a chardonnay-swilling
everywoman, is back in this hotly anticipated third installment.
What do you do when
your girlfriend’s sixtieth birthday party is the same day as your boyfriend’s
thirtieth? Is it better to die of Botox or die of loneliness because you’re so
wrinkly? Is it wrong to lie about your age when online dating? Is it morally
wrong to have a blow-dry when one of your children has head lice? Is it normal
to be too vain to put on your reading glasses when checking your toy boy for
head lice? Does the Dalai Lama actually tweet, or is it his assistant? Is it
normal to get fewer followers the more you tweet? Is technology now the fifth
element? Or is that wood? If you put lip plumper on your hands do you get plump
hands? Is sleeping with someone after two dates and six weeks of texting the
same as getting married after two meetings and six months of letter writing in
Jane Austen’s day?
Pondering these and
other modern dilemmas, Bridget Jones stumbles through the challenges of loss,
single motherhood, tweeting, texting, technology, and rediscovering her
sexuality in—warning: bad, outdated phrase approaching!—middle age.
In a triumphant
return after fourteen years of silence, Bridget Jones: Mad about the Boy
is timely, tender, touching, page-turning, witty, wise, outrageous, and bloody
hilarious. Download and start listening now!
