First things first; I am a man. A not very fabulous man at that.
Feel free to disregard the rest of my review if you wish as clearly I am not Helen Fielding's target market either now or 15 years ago. In my defense, I did read and enjoy Bridget Jones' Diary back in the day. Oh and I have childcare responsibilities so a grown up Bridget should be right up my street.....

ANYWAY. Now you know my credentials or lack there of let's get on with the review:

I agree with every one of the 1 star reviews here, this is a dreadful book. All the points scored against it are easy shots:

The character has not changed in any way in 15 years despite parenthood and two significant bereavements

The tragic events glossed over in the recap are far more interesting then the trivia that makes up the actual plot of the novel, is Helen Fielding scared of depth?

It reads like a synopsis for a movie with Hugh Grant's character shoe horned in purely so the producers of the inevitable film can include his name on the poster

It is not funny - the comedy is horribly contrived and falls flat on it's bottom at every turn

The story is utter trivia - did I mention that already? It bears repeating!

And you will no doubt find your own list of personal pet hates.
Here are mine:

The dismal cultural research (Plants Vs Zombies is not a game in which children use zombies to destroy plants, there are no 'levels' to complete in Minecraft, the last time a child said "Epic Fail" in real life was 2010 and even then they were eternally shunned by their peers for using such dated parlance).

The constant product placement masquerading as authenticity (Apple and Grazia must be delighted among many, many others).

Omg, what a disappointment! I absolutely loved the first two books and the films (of course!), but as I was reading this sequel I kept wondering if Helen Fielding actually wrote this herself, as with every further page it more and more reminded me of a fan fic. First of all, what happened to all the wonderful sarcastic humour of the first books? Why all the graphic sex scenes? The plot doesn't make sense either: why did she have kids so late? The plot suggests that Bridget married Mark at 35. But then she had Billy at 45 and Mabel at 47? Despite the ticking clock? A bit of a stretch, isn't it? Why and how was Mark killed? How does she manage to get a referral to obesity clinic wearing size 14? The whole Mr.Wallaker romance was visible from the very beginning, no suspense there at al! But my main question to the author is WHY DO YOU HATE YOUR WONDERFUL CHARACTERS? You turned Bridget into a sad sad person who lives on cheese, Daniel Cleaver is laughable in his pathetic advances AND drinks fairy liquid, Mark is dead! This book is a fake and I'll pretend it doesn't exist!

Format: Hardcover
I was looking forward to this book so much as I loved reading the other books. However, unlike the others, I didn't enjoy this at all. For some strange reason, Bridget is now around fifty years old and with very young children ( her youngest is four!). Why's that, when she married Mark Darcy when she was in her early thirties! Helen Fielding should have thought of this! Most of Bridget's fans were all around the same age as her and could relate to her. That's why the first two books were so successful! We're not interested in nits and toy boys! We've grown up and matured but she clearly hasn't!
I read the first half of the book and then had to give up. Couldn't bear to read any more drivel!

What a shame, I loved the first two books. This one is boring, badly written and uses text conversations and Twitter rubbish far too often. Plus, what is the point of having a book about Bridget without Mr Darcy? Should have left it at 2 books- had to force myself to finish it.

Format: Hardcover
Diabolical.

Lovable, cuddly, foot-in-mouth, just-the-way-you-are Bridget is long gone. In her place is a 51 year old widow obsessed with finding a man (yes, still,- and while we're on the subject, what kind of a name is Roxster?!), losing weight (yes, still, - a referral to an obesity clinic at a size 14? Really Helen? Way to relate to a huge chunk of your original fans there...) and booze (mouthful of wine in the middle of a children's diarrhea/vomit incident? Really?).

As for "hilarious" - if you find nits, poo, vomit, farting, technophobia and juvenile name-calling among parents funny, then you'll split your sides within the first 150 pages. Otherwise, you'll sit as I did, cringing for this ridiculous woman.

Just keep in mind when reading this that Bridget is no longer in her thirties and trying to work out where her life is going. She's 51, with children raised by a Nanny (even though she doesn't work) and a stupid boyfriend. Her friends haven't grown up either, and her mother is still commenting on her life even though she's now in her seventies.

Helen seems to think we've all forgotten who Bridget is - lines from the first two books and films crop up repeatedly. "Daniel, my former emotional f*ckwit boyfriend and Mark's former arch-enemy" or "Running around naked on his parents lawn". Look, I'm all for finding love and discovering who you are no matter what your age, but when these characters are supposed to be in their fifties and they're still having telephone conversations that involve the words "what colour are your knickers, Jones?" - it's time to stop reading.

Helen made a huge mistake getting rid of one of the most popular characters, but she made an even bigger one by writing this drivel in the first place.
