"Dependably delicious . . . Pitch perfect." —Newsweek
Recklessly cosmopolitan, jet-setting, worldly, adventurous-a 340 page romp." —The Independent
"This is a girl’s own adventure - with added sauce - to rattle through in one entertaining sitting. Helen Fielding is a great comic writer." —The Spectator
"Very addictive…. Fielding’s comic talent lies in her adorable observations.... This is quintessential Fielding." —The Observer
"If Bridget Jones shaped and named a certain kind of life in the 1990s, it looks as if Olivia Joules, Helen Fielding’s new heroine, may do the same for the new decade." —The Times (London)
"Hurrah for Fielding! Yet again she’s picked up on what’s lacking in the girly train read, and whistled us up Olivia Joules: a Jane Bond heroine with a wonderfully overactive imagination…. Fielding’s prose shimmers and glares with wit, sophistication and humanity. A brilliant comic writer, Fielding’s talent exceeds any sociological explanation." —The Independent on Sunday
"Fielding is an extremely skillful and engaging writer. The book works as a fast-paced thriller - I gulped in down in one reading. But it also has great charm and, in its shy fashion, a moral theme." —The Telegraph
"The name is Joules, Olivia Joules.... Post Bridget Jones, Helen Fielding has written an action-packed thriller starring ‘a heroine for the 21st century.’ The result is a book that’s fast-moving and entertaining." —The Guardian
I haven't read Bridget Jones. Perhaps that's an important factor, in reading other reviews. I had no expectations of Bridget, and thus really liked this book. Read morePublished 7 months ago by locally grown
This is a chick romcom type of book which is usually not my style, but it was funny and kept me reading. I've ever reread it over the years!Published 17 months ago by beffinay kaeble
poorly developed characters. plot was not believable. exposition murky. climax sketchy. poor grammar- similar to a children's book. incredibly disappointing.Published 18 months ago by T. Pickell
This is on the lines of Bridget Jones and was decent, quick, and easy reading. Very funny also. Would recommend.Published 22 months ago by Melanie T.
An excellent alternative to the Bridget Jones series, with some of the same wit shown in "Cause Celeb." Here is an author for all seasons! Read morePublished 23 months ago by Dr. John T. Webb
If you are expecting anything even close to Bridget Jones writing quality, this is NOT IT! I was very disappointed!!Published on October 31, 2013 by Amanda
I read this fun little book so quickly! It would be perfect for a vacation or any time you need to "escape". Helen Fielding does it again!Published on October 5, 2013 by Mrs. Joudy
