Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination - Helen Fielding
Brid­get Jones meets James Bond — result: Olivia Joules (that’s “J.O.U.L.E.S. the unit of kinetic energy”), another char­ac­ter of Helen Fielding’s fan­tas­tic mind. In the mood for an easy read and hilar­i­ous story? Pick up this book and you’ll have a great cou­ple of days.

After these pos­i­tive lines I feel the need to say that this is really not a Brid­get fol­low up. For me this book is not as good as the first Brid­get Jones book. The char­ac­ters are a lit­tle more flat and two-dimensional and some of the events, espe­cially at the end and con­clu­sion went a bit too far and were a bit too much for me. But, don’t let this hold you back pick­ing up the book; great comic tal­ent as we’re used to from Helen Field­ing. Her style and choice of words will surely gen­er­ate some laugh-out-loud moments.
Just don’t expect Bridget!
