With another devastatingly hilarious, ridiculous, unnervingly accurate take on modern womanhood, Bridget Jones is back. (v.g.)
Monday 27 January:
"7:15 a.m. Hurrah! The wilderness years are over. For four weeks and five days now have been in functional relationship with adult male, thereby proving am not love pariah as recently feared."

Wednesday 5 March:
"7:08 p.m. Am assured, receptive, responsive woman of substance. My sense of self comes not from other people but . . .from . . .myself? That can't be right."

Lurching from the cappuccino bars of Notting Hill to the blissed-out shores of Thailand, everyone's favorite Singleton Bridget Jones begins her search for The Truth in spite of pathetically unevolved men, insane dating theories, and Smug Married advice. She experiences a zeitgeist-esque Spiritual Epiphany somewhere between the pages of How to Find the Love You Want Without Seeking It (can self-help books really help self?), protective custody, and a lightly chilled Chardonnay.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 2/11/2014

    " Having more Bridget was great, but the plot seemed to draw too much from several different movies/scripts and Bridget was too overboard in her own mind. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffany | 2/6/2014

    " I like the movie better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex Hutson | 1/27/2014

    " This book made me laugh SO hard haha! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ann | 1/12/2014

    " The diary of an English girl, desperate to keep her boyfriend and lose weight. Just not where I'm at right now. plus I never read the first one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liane | 1/10/2014

    " witty, humorous, and easy to read, a light hearted 'pick me up book' that will make you smile "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dian | 12/30/2013

    " Another entertaining, quick read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Luci | 12/30/2013

    " It was a horrible sequel to a pretty good book. Talk about flogging the dead horse. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie Mendel | 12/25/2013

    " I loved the original Bridget Jones book and the movie but felt that this one took reality of the character which is what makes her so charming in the first book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 12/21/2013

    " I bought this and it was an entertaining read, but unfortunately the movie completely ruined the book and took out the best part. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Porter Kelly | 12/2/2013

    " I was so excited for this to come out and it did not disappoint...the movie, however, was extremely disappointing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Krystal Hammer | 11/30/2013

    " Thoroughly enjoyed reading this one. It was just as good as the first book. Cute and easy to read, finished both in about 4 days. I enjoyed the ending. There were many funny parts that I liked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret von Fizzlewick | 11/29/2013

    " I love, love, love the chapter where Bridget molests Colin Firth during an interview. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisse | 11/26/2013

    " Again - a great book to read if you just want a good laugh and an easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 10/12/2013

    " SSSSOOOOOOO funny! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carys | 10/4/2013

    " Very funny book but the first one is definitely my favourite! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie Jem | 10/3/2013

    " an OK sequel "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lee | 9/29/2013

    " One of the few times when the sequel is better than the original book. Unlike the first book too, this one is better than the movie. Really funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Wallace | 8/30/2013

    " Better than the first one, but the middle was a little slow. Bridget is kind of a whiny/naive character but she does improve when she's with Mark. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 cubbie | 8/16/2013

    " not only was this book tremendously ridiculous fun, it also had the delightful quality of having everything that made me frustrated at the beginning become resolved in the perfect, most sappy and heartwarming way! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary-Jo | 7/26/2013

    " Hilarious! Of course you need to read the fist book, which is also good, but this one is even better. BTW the "Edge of Reason" movie was not as funny as the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tugce Kasikci | 5/1/2013

    " After the amazing first book, it feels like a little bit of stretch. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lulie | 4/24/2013

    " I didn't like as much the first one, but I was happy to see how Bridget grown during this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 4/18/2013

    " I have a huge Bridget Jones weakness so it was inevitable that I would eventually give this one a try. It was fun enough, though nothing amazing, and there was certainly no real character development. Surprising? No, but who's in this for character development? Right, exactly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tate | 1/20/2013

    " Again, I can't say enough, I simply love Helen Fielding's writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adriana | 12/1/2012

    " Not the original, but definitely better than all of Helen Fielding's other books. I would recommend this, but it's not a re-reader like the original. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catlyn Caldart | 8/11/2012

    " Better than the movie, but Bridget needs to stop whining about her life. HELLO! She's dating Colin Firth! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dyanne | 6/17/2012

    " Not as good as the first Bridget book, but it is nice to see what happens to Bridget after she gets together with Mark Darcy. Book is MUCH better then the Movie if you are trying to decide if you want to read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Berna | 6/8/2012

    " Not as good as the first one but better than the movie version. Still there were some very funny sections like the first one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christine Rebbert | 7/25/2011

    " I felt this was an unnecessary sequel. The jail part was especially silly. I liked some of the relationships between the women-friends, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kara Vehar | 6/18/2011

    " I laughed almost harder with this one then I did the first one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Suher | 5/23/2011

    " This book is a waste of time and money . "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Athena | 5/19/2011

    " Bridget is one of the funniest, most endearing characters of the last several years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa | 5/19/2011

    " A delightfully ridiculous sequel to the original Bridget Jones. Poor Bridget has plenty of opportunities to get herself into trouble again in this second book. In particular, the interview with Colin Firth and Bridget's experience in the jail in Thailand are a riot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 5/16/2011

    " While I usally like the books better than the movies, that wasn't the case this time around. For me, the movie was better than the book. The book was pretty different than the movie in the story line and plot and I liked it much better than the book. Strange. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abbie | 5/15/2011

    " Hilarious read wouldn't suggest to younger readers due to some of the words mentioned! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janet | 5/14/2011

    " Not as good as the movie. I use this example as the time I can think of where the movie WAS better than the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 5/11/2011

    " Loved it. Can only recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shirma | 5/9/2011

    " Immensely funny. Just the shot of feel-good love story I needed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 5/4/2011

    " My life is far too much like Bridget's. V. Sad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 4/30/2011

    " Delightful book! Found myself turning the pages so quickly in hopes for a happy ending! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 4/26/2011

    " Not the most intellectual book, but still a very good read. Main character is a little neurotic, but still a quirky voice and good "beach read". "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christina | 4/15/2011

    " Didn't care for the language (the swearing, to be specific) and the story was not that great to me. I'm being honest about my opinion. I read it because others were raving, but was sorely disappointed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/6/2011

    " I just LOVE Bridget! This book, again, had me laughing out loud! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruby | 3/29/2011

    " This one was much funnier than the last book. I was laughing out loud in the lunch room. People probably thought I was crazy. "
