Synopsis

Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding

When Helen Fielding first wrote Bridget Jones' Diary, charting the life of a 30 - something singleton in London in the 1990s, she introduced readers to one of the most beloved characters in modern literature. The book was published in 40 countries, sold more than 15 million copies worldwide, and spawned a best-selling sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. The two books were turned into major blockbuster films starring Renee Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth. With her hotly anticipated third instalment, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy, Fielding introduces us to a whole new enticing phase of Bridget's life. An uproariously funny novel of modern life, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy is a triumphant return of our favourite Everywoman.

I recommend Lovereading because you get honest reviews on a whole range of genres-there's something for everyone. It's the only site I need.

Sian Spinney

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.
