I was prepared to dislike Mad About the Boy purely because of its premise – that Darcy had died and Bridget was a widow. But Helen Fielding has done it again. Captured the spirit of the contemporary age.
I found myself giggling helplessly when Bridget is obsessively monitoring how many Twitter followers she has – the parallels with follower numbers of blogs is just too rich to ignore!
But be warned – the hilarious section which deals with the children getting nits is likely to make your own head itch!
If you liked the original book, I think you will like this one – a lot! Bridget Jones is back!
