Publisher's Summary

A new year begins - and Bridget Jones, the globally best selling, unflinchingly self-disciplined, and definitely practically nonsmoking heroine, is about to discover what happens when you have the man of your dreams actually in your flat and he hasn't been to the supermarket - not just tonight, but ever. Lurching from the cappuccino bars of Notting Hill to the blissed-out shores of Thailand, searching for The Truth in spite of pathetically unevolved men, insane dating theories, and Smug Married advice, Bridget experiences a zeitgeist-esque Spiritual Epiphany somewhere between the pages of How to Find the Love You Want Without Seeking It, protective custody, and a lightly chilled Chardonnay. With another devastatingly hilarious, ridiculous, unnervingly accurate take on modern womanhood, Bridget Jones is back.

More Marvelous stuff

I *loved* Bridget Jones. Hilarious, heartwarming stuff. It's pretty hard to follow that up. This is quite good as sequels go, and is definitely worth it to hear more about Bridget and her insecurities. The reading is superb--each character not only sounds totally different, but completely embodies who the character is as well.

Better book to read than listen to

My concept of Bridget's voice is shaped by Renee Zellweger in the movie. This narrator is really painful to listen to. I don't like her voice at all and some of the characters were brutal with how loud she was. I almost didn't finish listening to it but if you liked "Diary" you'll like this as well.

Lesson learned - listen to a snippet before purchasing. The narrator's voice and inflections are major drawbacks if they are annoying. So read the book instead!
