"Praise for Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy"
Today Show's second Book Club Selection!
""Mad About the Boy" is not only sharp and humorous, despite its heroine's aged circumstances, but also snappily written, observationally astute and at times genuinely moving. Fielding has somehow pulled off the neat trick of holding to her initial premise - single woman looks for romance - while allowing her heroine to grow up into someone funnier and more interesting that she was before. Who knew middle age could be so eventful? . . . Fielding beautifully conveys the constant seesaw of emotions a parent feels toward the young and demanding: one minute overwhelming love, the next minute overwhelming desire to lock oneself in the bathroom with a bottle of gin . . . We get some good long narration, but large chunks of the book come in diary form, introduced by select statistics of the day, hilariously expanded to reflect grown-up Bridget's concerns.... Its big heart, incisive observations and zippy pace . . . make the prospect of middle age not so bad at all. It is possible I cried a little at the end, but then, as Bridget might say: am sucker for happy endings."
--Sarah Lyall, "The New York Times Book Review"

"With "Bridget Jones's Diary, "Helen Fielding created a new female archetype. Now she's brought Bridget back to conquer the 21st century. (Rule No. 1: No texting while drunk) . . . Texting and Twitter play an outsize role in the new novel, which finds Bridget solo-parenting two young children and seeking romance after a decade under Mark Darcy's chivalric guard . . . The diary form itself pays homage to Austen, lifting Fielding's work above many pale imitations. Austen's heroines aren't writers, but Fielding's is . . . Austen's plots are marriage plots, and ultimately so are "Bridget"'s. But Fielding's novels (like Austen's, and like "Sex and the City "and "Girls") also revolve around friendship--something at which Bridget excels. Nor is the char

Reseña del editor:

Move over, Bridget Jones's diary: She's back, and this time she's texting and tweeting. . .
Fourteen years after landing Mark Darcy, Bridget's life has taken her places she never expected. But despite the new challenges of single parenting, online dating, wildly morphing dress sizes, and bafflingly complex remote controls, she is the same irrepressible and endearing soul we all remember--though her talent for embarrassing herself in hilarious ways has become dangerously amplified now that she has 752 Twitter followers. As Bridget navigates head lice epidemics, school-picnic humiliations, and cross-generational sex, she learns that life isn't over when you start needing reading glasses--and why one should never, ever text while drunk.
Studded with witty observations about the perils and absurdities of our times, Mad About the Boy is both outrageously comic and genuinely moving. As we watch her dealing with heartbreaking loss and rediscovering love and joy, Bridget invites us to fall for her all over again.
