Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
"HARHARBLOODY HAR. Put that in your pipe hole and smoke it, society!" --Bridget Jones
Picked this up for a fun weekend read and it did not disappoint. Some reviewers have wondered why Bridget at 50 is just as ditzy as she was in her 30s, but how much does a person really change once they become an adult? (Is Bridget an adult? ) Some of the best parts were Jones trying to figure out Twitter and manage her kids' electronic devices.
And, of course, there is a Jane Austen reference:
'We've been texting for weeks. Surely it's rather like in Jane Austen's day when they did letter-writing for months and months and then just, like, immediately got married?'
'Bridget. Sleeping with a twenty-nine-year-old off Twitter on the second date is not "rather like Jane Austen's day."'
