really liked it

I actually want to give this book three and a half stars. I picked it up because I really enjoyed the two Bridget Jones books (there some of the only books I've read that actually made me laugh out loud), and this is by the same author. Similar to the Bridget books, it's funny in an absurd kind of way, and I *did* enjoy the fact that this female lead was a bit less idiotic and hopeless (though lovable!) than Bridget. And yet this book just didn't have the same insight and sharp humor I expected from Fielding. The story was way over-the-top, but undeniably entertaining. If you want a light, fun, travel-type book and/or if you're a fan of Fielding, it's worth picking this book up.

Mavic Wow, we both have the same reasons for picking up this book. I thought because it's Helen Fielding, it's going to be a good stuff- but i was deceived. Now, i'm learning to read books even if they are not from the same author who created one critically-acclaimed novel. :)
