I'm a huge fan of Helen Fielding but can't understand why she has entirely missed the early part of Bridget's married life with Mark and skipped straight to her being single again in her50's.
I found the character of "Roxster", her "Toy Boy" to be annoying throughout and completely unfunny - so much so I gave up reading the book halfway through.
I was disappointed not to hear more about Bridget's friends Shazza,Tom and Jude,who were hilarious in the first two books.
Hearing about the antics of her Mum, Dad and the Alconbury's was also a highlight of the previous books but these wonderfully crafted characters were also barely mentioned in Mad About the Boy.
Eventually, I ran out of books to read on holiday so finally finished Mad About the Boy but found the ending to be as disappointing as the rest of the book.
I can't see how a writer as talented as Helen Fielding who broke the mould of "Chick Lit" stories with the brilliant Bridget Jones's Diary - taking the genius of Sue Townsend and the hilarious Adrian Mole's Diary format and bringing it to a modern audience, could have settled for writing something so mediocre in comparison to her earlier work.
I'll continue to re-read the first two books which still make me laugh out loud after so many years.
Thank You, Helen Fielding for Bridget Jones's Diary and The Edge of Reason - they've both brought me a great deal of pleasure over the years.

Okay, before I bought this book I read a few bad reviews. However, being a BJ fan, I trusted my instincts and bought a copy. I wasn’t disappointed. It is different from the first two BJ novels because Bridget is now at a different stage in her life, but it’s still a great read. Yes, as others have reflected, I wasn’t happy that Mark Darcy had been killed off, and yes Bridget Jones is now a 50 year old older mother, but she’s still funny, she’s still fun and I still love her.

In Mad About The Boy, Bridget, who is now a widow with two small children in tow, takes us through the stages of being a single parent and the dramas of finding love again as an older woman. She meets new toyboy, Roxster, on Twitter, who fulfils the role perfectly – good looking, flirtatious, sexy and fun. Daniel Cleaver is still on the scene, albeit in the background and not as a love interest, which I found quite refreshing.

I enjoyed the bit sized chapters and the observational wit, which is evident throughout the novel. It didn’t have many twists and turns but I wasn’t expecting that. It’s an easy read with some good laughs (some laugh out loud), and although the ending wasn’t a big surprise, it tied it all up nicely. I finished the last chapter with a smile on my face.

My only qualm was that Mark Darcy was no longer a part of Bridget Jones’ life. Other than that, I thought Mad About The Boy was a lovely, easy, fun read, and I look forward to the next instalment.

Spoiler Alert!

Bridget Jones books read 3, BJ books enjoyed 3, times latest BJ book made me weep 3. Times Darcy's death made me cry 1. Urges to start affair with Roxter; too many to count, pages read before working out ending; not many at all.

I really enjoyed this, and it made me laugh and made me cry just as all the others did. The bits about Jones' children were the best by far.

I am not going to slate Fielding for killing off Darcy. Her books; her decision! I imagine this will be a film, with lots of Darcy flash backs. It will work, of that I am sure. Fielding is too good at her craft to fail. Stars given 4, stars lost, 1, for killing Darcy, but Roxter was lush and I love a happy ending!

When I bought this, it was a bit annoying as most of the reviews had spoilers so I didn't want to read them. This review will not contain any. If you are a Bridget fan, then don't bother. Initially, it was nice reading bits about the characters again, but most of it was awful and not funny. It completely ruined the first two novels for me. There was no point killing Mark other than that Helen Fielding needed to make some more money. She has lost her humorous / social observation touches entirely. I wish I could get my money back, but I can't. Never regretted having a Kindle until this book.

I Loved Bridget and looked forward to reading this. What a disappointment, I really struggled. No real story line, too much reference to Twitter and texts, ending very predictable, with Christmas, snow, twinkling lights. I persevered out of loyalty but was relieved when I had at last finished, hoping against hope that it would improve. It didn't. It was almost as if Ms Fielding had dug up Bridget and couldn't bring her back to life or didn't even try to. Don't waste your time or money.

I really enjoyed the previous two books. Found this boring from the word go but persevered to the end hoping it would improve. It didn't.I have never given up on a book yet but came close to it several times. Don't understand the reasoning for killing off Mark Darcy and just couldn't relate to the Bridget Jones we all love.
