Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding

Bridget has been a widow for five years now and is dating a much younger man, Roxster.  She is also raising her two children (Billy and Mabel) and trying to get her script, a remake of Hedda Gabler, made into a movie.  The novel follows Bridget with humorous daily diary entries on the ups and downs of her life.  The reader also gets an update on what happened to all the secondary characters since the first two books.  A light, enjoyable diversion...  I wasn't bothered by Darcy's death, since I had known about it beforehand-- and I found Bridget's dating Roxster not really surprising, considering her madcap worldview.
