Publisher's Summary

8.45 P.M. Realise there have been so many times in my life when have fantasised about going to a scan with Mark or Daniel: just not both at the same time.
Before motherhood before marriage Bridget with biological clock ticking very, very loudly finds herself unexpectedly pregnant at the eleventh hour: a joyful pregnancy which is dominated however by a crucial but terribly awkward question - who is the father? Mark Darcy: honourable decent notable human rights lawyer? Or Daniel Cleaver: charming witty notable fuckwit?
9.45 P.M. It's like they're two halves of the perfect man who'll spend the rest of their lives each wanting to outdo the other one. And now it's all enacting itself in my stomach.
In this gloriously funny touching story of baby-deadline panic maternal bliss and social professional technological culinary and childbirth chaos Bridget Jones - global phenomenon and the world's favourite Singleton - is back with a bump.

Has Bridget gone as far as she can go?

This is all you want from Bridget Jones. She drinks too much with her baby-free friends, gets into a catalogue of scrapes, has sex with bad-idea Daniel and it's-all-so-over (not) Mark Darcy within days - and finds that she's not peri-menopausal but pregnant. The Diary hurtles along as Bridget is batted between Mark and Daniel: they fight together after seeing the scan, Daniel drowns her in dinners and pretentious talk about his rubbish novel and Mark retires wounded for a while

If you're offended by the f-word, this isn't for you since a significant percentage of Bridget's Diary contains it and elaborate variations of it. You certainly won't be amused by Daniel's outrageous (but funny) excuse for blaming Bridget for her pregnancy!! It's all part of the breakneck pace and humour of the Diary, which is essential since the whole depends on speed which stops you thinking about any serious aspect of Bridget's life. It's all light hearted fun about whether Daniel or Mark is the baby's father, and whether Bridget will finally lasso Mark.

Generally, Helen Fielding doesn't do subtlety and there are lots of funny and exaggerated swipes at the way life is these days, but the growing love between Bridget and her unborn baby and the final lines of the story hit a genuine and emotional high note.

I do think, though, that this should be the end of Bridget Jones and her Diary. The silly-girl-Bridget predicaments and plot lines seem rather tired and it would be a good idea to leave it there whilst it's still successful, though less so than previous Bridgets. Just like Jane Austen had the sense to leave Elizabeth Bennet once she'd married her Darcy (can you imagine just how dull that marriage would have been?), Helen Fielding would be well advised to leave Bridget to adjust to motherhood and bring up her baby without us!

Samantha Bond makes an excellent narrator full of pace and well defined character voices, including those of the men - a tricky job well done.

Funny as ever

Great, easy listen. Lots of laughs & cringe worth moments. Lacking substance as always but that is rather an expectation with Bridget Jones.

The age of narrator (older husky voice) does not match that of Bridget Jones; hard to get into the book.

Different to the movie but still hilarious

Different from the movie but I still absolutely loved it. I had quite a few laugh out loud moments. It seems to follow the cannon storylines from the first two movies as opposed to the novels, but the plot differs from the movie version. Jack is completely written out and instead we have Daniel Clever.
