I didn't think this was quite as good as the Bridget Jones books, but Fielding definitely has a flair for heroines who get themselves into hilariously embarrassing situations. Anyone who likes British chick lit will enjoy it.

A wonderful story of a young woman Rosie, who has an epiphany when she realizes that her life in London is ....frivolous. Instead of shopping to make herself feel better, she abandons the world she knows to help others.
Written by the author of BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY, this novel is a wake-up call intending to make the public aware of the need for continued support in the fight against African famine.
Chick lit with substance!

Very interesting change from the Bridget Jones books. Much more serious side, and yet the fun moments are very very fun.

Surprising book from Fielding. While Bridget Jones was fun, this had a slightly more serious slant. I enjoyed it as did friends who borrowed it.

Interesting book where famine relief work is juxtapositioned with true chick lit episodes.
