Sequels are never as good as the first.... are they?, 15 Jan 2004
After reading the first “diary”, I was compelled to read this sequel and see if it lived up to my expectations… and it did more than that!
This book is the most enjoyable piece of writing to read for anyone, especially “Singletons” who know exactly what Bridget is going through. The book picks up from where we left Bridget and Mark, in their newly found romance, however this is Bridget Jones’s life and nothing ever goes to plan. Especially when the man of her dreams becomes all too real… and doesn’t know how to clean up! With a wedding on the way, problems with the family and her friends, Bridget escapes to Thailand only to be greeted with yet more situations that Helen Fielding creates.
From her parents to her friends; work to love, even her sacred self-help books all come under fire in this enthralling novel. Bridget Jones is an amazing character and the first film doesn’t do Helen Fielding’s work any justice, I only hope the second one can live up to an amazing piece of work!
