Lots of overlap with Dan Brown but the central character is more action based. I've already bought some more in the series but would recommend you try before you you buy.......

What disappointed you about Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy?

I don't know quite what I expected from this book, but I did not expect to find a 51 year old widowed Bridget Jones back in the dating game and still and behaving like a teenager.

What was most disappointing about Helen Fielding’s story?

The fact that there was no growth within the Bridget Jones character - same old situation - updated technology but basically still waiting on a man - over analyzing everything and still dependant of self help books.

What does Samantha Bond bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Samantha's perfromce matches the book and I have no issue with the performance.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment and a sense of an opportunity to explore completely different issues missed.

Any additional comments?

As one of a very small number of women whose first name is Nicolette! and who was named long before the well known Stop Smoking aid I'm a tad irritated that my name has been trashed :-)

Not the best

I have to agree with the other reviewers. I found the rapid delivery very frustrating but battled on.

I enjoyed the book and you could definetly see the direct lines from Martin Beck to Kurt Wallander and Harry Hole.

Standard Dan Brown - secrets, codes and a nasty man chasing people with a greater spirtual goal. All in all I could not recommend it but if you like Dan brown then you'll like this.

I really enjoyed The Da Vinci Code but found the fact that this is all set in Washington D.C. rather dull - it feels like it's been written with the movie in mind
