Bridget Jones’s baby

I have been reading Helen Fielding books ever since I first picked up Bridget Jones’s diary and loved how Bridget is a bit clumsy but still so loveable. Reading that first book places me back in time for about a decade. In between then and now, I’ve read the sequel and even the 3rd book (on which this film is not based), I’ve seen the adaptations of the first and second diary book.  As this story has a base in “Pride and Prejudice” and even winked with having a Mr. Marc Fitzwilliam Darcy, it even interested me more from the start. In the adaptations, they even went a step further and cast the actor that played Mr. Darcy in the most loved Pride and Prejudice adaptation as Mr. Darcy in Bridget Jones. Now when checking which books there are written by Helen Fielding, I see that there is a novel version of this film. I will have to read it one of these days.

This first part I’m writing at the beginning of 2016. I have just finished reading the book Miss Peregrine’s School for Peculiar Children and am in awe of the book. I read the book in about a week, this was an ok speed for me since I was only reading on the train to and from work. This also means that the book reads very good and the pace was quick enough for me to keep on reading. I am wondering how Tim Burton will bring certain parts of the book to live, what his vision is on the story. On the other hand, I’m very curious to see the film because if this book is adapted in typical Tim Burton style, it will bring more fans to the book series and it will just be a treat for me since I love Tim’s work.
