"A gloriously funny and touching story" * Daily Express * "Bridget Jones is as relevant and funny today as she has always been... Daniel [Cleaver] is not only alive and shagging, he also has the best lines... Again and again he comes up with smutty one-liners that steal the show" * Evening Standard * "Fielding's narrative diverts from the screen version: notably that feckless Daniel Cleaver, the original "fuckwit" in Bridget's life is, gratifyingly, very much alive and central to the plot of the novel. "VG"" * Financial Times * "It's a real fun read. The jokes are great and you find yourself rooting for Bridget and praying she gets the outcome she deserves" * The Sun * "Before I read this book, I wondered whether there could possibly be anything left to tell. This book is absolutely necessary. At a time when the world seems especially dark and difficult, and sometimes stacked against women, Bridget Jones's Baby is both a longed for slice of escapism and a real inspiration" * The Pool * "It's very, very good... Fielding reminds us once again she's queen of encapsulating the female experience... Short, pacy and perfect" * Press Association * "Helen Fielding is one of the funniest writers in Britain and Bridget Jones is a creation of comic genius" -- Nick Hornby "A brilliant comic creation" -- Salman Rushdie "How can a reader not love this woman?" * New York Times Book Review * "Bridget Jones is no mere fictional character, she's the Spirit of the Age" * Evening Standard *
