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.

    Story
    "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.

    "Narrator sounds too old"

    The book and story is great but I feel sorry to say that the narrator sounds a lot older than that of a 30 something which played on my mind throughout also the gahh sound effects annoyed me a lot.

    "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.

    "Lovely Read"

    The book was a very easy read, managed to read it very quickly in two days. A really funny, classic Bridget Jones story line. Would highly recommend!

    "Bit short but good just the way it is !!"

    Really enjoyed this instalment of Bridget's life. Only downside was the length of the book, which is considerably shorter than the other books. One dog walk and a basket of ironing and I'd finished listening to the whole thing.

    "Very enjoyable listen"

    Narration was excellent but the book is way too short. More a short story than anything else.

    "Laugh out loud entertaining listen"

    My only negative comment about this audio book it's that it's far too short - I've just listened to the whole story while pottering about on a Sunday afternoon.

    "I laughed and cried! Brilliant!"

    I was a little apprehensive about reading another Bridget Jones but I can honestly say that this was my favourite! Laugh out loud funny and touching, characters were fab as usual, just don't listen to it without headphones if you have kids... Lots of F**k f**k f**k!!!

    Story
    "BORING and does not work as an audio book."

    I remember reading the original and it was funny. I was a lot younger then. A friend said they had seen the movie and it was very funny, I am sure it is in a laurel and hardy kind of slapstick way, but the story is utter rubbish. By the end I didn't care whose baby it was. It was a banal pile of junk and a complete waste of my time. I wanted light entertainment. It was light, but not entertaining. I am sure this would make a good movie but the book is embarrassing to listen to. Cringe worthy in places.
