Bridget Jones, beloved Singleton and global phenomenon, is back with a bump in Bridget Jones’s Baby: The Diaries.
8:45 P.M. Realize there have been so many times in my life when have fantasized 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 PM 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 favorite Singleton is back with a bump.”
I have always been a huge fan of the Bridget Jones’s diary series. I’ve seen all the films and read all the books. With out a doubt Bridget is a hugely loveable character.
Having watched the movie and having one of the main characters sadly missing, I was so pleased to see that Daniel is very much in the actual book. It just wouldn’t be the same without him. Even though I loved the film, I do think it would have been absolutely perfect if it had been in keeping with the book but obviously Hugh Grant must have had other commitments.
Poor Bridget always seems to be getting her life together at the end of every book but at the start of another new book her life is sadly back off track again. Her and Mark are like yo yo’s. Forever coming and going. They are such the perfect couple yet constantly make stupid mistakes that see them drifting apart yet again.
Daniel is and always will be a big child. He’s one of those ones that will never settle down. Even though he is very fond of Bridget, and probably quite good in bed, we all know he is just soooo wrong for her.
I have to say the whole pregnancy thing, with the scans and anti natal clinics was just hilarious. Only Bridget could make an embarrassing dilemma into something so much fun. Well for the readers that is as I’m sure she would rather not be in that situation.
It’s great to see so many of the much loved characters again. From Bridget’s friends to her mum and dad, to the fabulous two love interests. I always know that I’m in for a highly enjoyable reading experience when I pick up this authors books. So hope there is going to be more as without a doubt Bridget is going to be one of those mums where the children end up looking after her!
