Editorial reviews

Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy

The latest Bridget Jones installment, “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.

In the end, it almost seems that she, inadvertently, is the one who has really been killed off.

Bridget’s story, in this latest and perhaps last installment, is beginning to sound like historical fiction.

We have a much-hyped novel that, sadly, is more retro than relevant.
