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.

    "not quite bridget"

    I have now listened to all 4 Bridget Jones diaries and for the 1st time ever found that the film was in fact better than the book, which i find odd. the book is quite significantly different to the film but the book came after the film. although I did laugh quite a few times and ultimately really enjoy it, it lacked something that was on the other 3 diaries. Bridget just didn't seem quite Bridget to me. it's still very much worth listening to though as still entertaining

    "Film first"

    I saw the film before listening to the book. The book is great but having seen the film first, the storyline is totally different. I preferred the film version which is why I only rated this 4* and not 5.

    "Good story"
    Would you listen to Bridget Jones's Baby again? Why?

    I may listen again, good story, different to the movie and not quite as funny. But the stroy is good and so if I was in the car and bored I would happily put this on.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Good plot, not much character development from certain characters but feels very much like Bridget Jones


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Reader has a very good voice happily listened to this book for long streches of time.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If it had been a book, i probobally would have put it down however as this was an audio book, I quite happily listened to this whilst doing other things so listened to most of the book in one 'sitting'.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like Bridget Jones you will like this, however don't expect it to be too simelar to the movie.

    Not half as good as her first two diaries :(
