Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy

We rated this book:


Mad About the Boy still serves up all the heart and hilarity of classic Bridget Jones.

When one is looking for an intense read of significant literary value, one does not turn to Bridget Jones. However, when one is looking for a gut-busting, romantic good time, she’s your gal! I thoroughly enjoyed the first two novels in the “Bridget Jones” series, and was truly excited to get more delicious Jonesey in the latest installment: Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy.

In this latest book, we catch up to our beloved, neurotic heroine post happily ever after. She has married her Mr. Darcy and they have two lovely children; however (and this isn’t a spoiler; I knew about it before I picked up the book as well), ever after is cut tragically short with the sudden death of said Mr. Darcy. That’s right: Mark Darcy is dead. Now Bridget finds herself in her fifties, unexpectedly single (again), a mother, and dealing with her grief—and then there’s Twitter.

Despite the sad premise, this latest installment still delivers on all the fantastic Bridget humor we’ve all come to love. There are still plenty of hijinks and dating disasters, Bridget’s attempts to modernize (via social media) are equally hilarious.
