"Mad About The Boy" is Helen Fielding's continuation of the Bridget Jones saga. Although time has passed, quite a lot of it, we find Bridget older, yet not wiser. For a grownup, she still has a long way to go before she grows up. For many readers, I'm sure, that's part of her charm. For me, Bridget is as exasperating as she was in Book 1 and Book 2.
Still, the book has a few nuggets of wisdom tucked in-between the silliness. It has a few tear-jerking motherhood moments. Ultimately, it's a light read, one that will make you feel good. You'll be able to put it down for days while more pressing matters arise, but you will pick it up again with pleasure. And when you turn the last page, you won't be left with a feeling that it was a waste of time. :-)
