1.5 stars. Only because it did give me the odd laugh. (I'm easily amused.) Otherwise a pathetic rerun of characters that haven't grown at all in the intervening years. Dorothy Parker's words would be well suited to this one: Not a book to be tossed aside lightly, but thrown with great force!

Found myself thinking the message one takes away by the end of this "series" is that it doesn't matter if you are total bollocks at everything else, as long as you eagerly shag every available male, you will find one to take care of you, and that, of course, is the main pursuit in life. Bleccchhh!… (mais)

Bridget Jones is a woman in her 50s, widowed with two small children, a cougar with a young and handsome lover, and it all should be wonderful and the Bridget Jones stories brought to life again, only somehow Fielding doesn't quite manage it this time around. I don't know if it's the widowhood or the vapidity of her romance, or the fact that quirky Bridget now, quite frankly, just seems air-headed, but I couldn't quite get behind this story or its hastily put-together ending. I gave it three stars because there were some funny parts, and because it was good enough to keep me reading, but it wasn't what I was hoping for, nor as good as I would have liked.… (mais)

It's all about booze, sex and sigarettes, but in a very sad "I-don't-know-what-to-do-with-my-life-so-I'll-just-keep-doing-what-I'm-good-at"-way. I think the word 'fatuous' fits the main character quite well.
If you feel like reading something similiar, just grab the diary of a random 15 year old. ("Oooh, I'm too fat!" "I need a boyfriend!" etc.)
