Move over Bridget,
By A Customer
This review is from: Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination (Hardcover)
Post Bridget, we've all been anxious to see what's next from Helen Fielding - where would she go? I think we should be thankful we've been offered Olivia Joules instead of the apparently dour northern saga Helen tried writing over the last 3 years. Her new book is light and fun and makes you laugh out loud (cue the strange looks I received on the bus ride home). I can't believe she has weaved a thriller together so successfuly that engages, is a page turner and still has those deft touches of 'girl-dom' that made Bridget so enchanting. Or that she can deal with the definitely not PC subject of Al Quaeda and Bin Laden without causing offence. I read it happily in one sitting, and bought and sent a copy to my sister straight away. She's saving hers for this weekend...
