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.
Very interesting change from the Bridget Jones books. Much more serious side, and yet the fun moments are very very fun.
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!
Girlfriend to a British celebrity, Rosie gets out and goes to Africa. Later faced with a huge refugee crisis, she goes back to her celebrity friends and tries to convince them to give aid when the relief agencies balk. Great fun when a few celebrities visit Africa in their designer safari outfits.
A wickedly funny book with a decidedly serious twist on the third world hunger problem.
``It could have been bustitled `Bridget Jones joins a MASH unit stationed in the Heart of Darkness.'' _ The Boston Globe.
From the author of Bridget Jones' Diary, this fun book also opens the world of humanitarian work in Africa. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
If you're looking for another "Bridget Jones", it is not. It is, however, pretty darn good anyway. It also gets one thinking about third-world issues in a non-threatening way, which I think is very positive. I had a hard time putting it down.
A FANTASTIC BOOK! If you liked Bridget Jones you will love this book also!
From the author of Bridget Jones's Diary, it's again fun, girly, british adventures and a heroine that could be any of us.
Great book by the author that wrote bridget jones diary - highly recommended
good but very different from her other books
Even better than Bridget Jones
Love Helen Fielding, but I just couldn't quite get into this book. HOWEVER, I have a friend who just LOVED it! So who knows. :)
I really didn't read much of this because I just couldn't get into it. Too bad because I loved Bridget Jones!
This book isn't Bridget Jones but is, nonetheless, still pretty entetaining. The pace moves quickly and all though I had a hard time accepting the main character as real it was an enjoyable story with good dialogue and story development.
The book was actually pretty good once I got past the first couple of chapters. Not as funny as Bridget Jones or Olivia Jules, but it is a good book to read.
My least fave of Helen Fielding's books, but still worth reading.
Eh, its no Bridget Jones.
