This is a very fast paced adventure, romance, comedy thriller all rolled into one! It is a page-turner, and as soon as I had picked it up I was hooked and couldn't put it down until I had finished! It made me laugh out loud.. so it was probably was a good thing that I read it in my room, otherwise I might have got some strange looks!! Olivia Joules is not a typical spy, for one thing she has a Very overactive imagination, for example, imagining that the very handsome French playboy, Pierre Ferramo, is Osama Bin Laden bent on the Western World's destruction. So against all this Olivia sets herself against the forces of terror armed only with a hatpin (this proves very useful) and a very special underwired bra (which is very uncomfortable but it's all in aid for a good cause!). But saying this, Helen Fielding manages to make this into a very believable thriller..weaving into the story political situations going on around the world at the moment, while still having the Bridget Jones' wit and comedy. I will not be at all surprised if this book is made into a film and is as big a success as Bridget Jones's Diary!
