Where is Mark Darcy?

Have you read the last Bridget Jones diary? Have you not? Have you never read any Bridget Jones diary book? No!! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?

Crash course for the ones who have no clue what I am talking about: Bridget Jones, single thirty something is trying to figure out who she is while watching everybody get on with their lives, i.e. getting married, having careers… She feels she is not getting anywhere, especially when it comes to relationships with men. Then she meets the stunning, sexy, amazing demi-God, Mark Darcy. After a tumultuous start – because nothing is ever simple in her life, they end up dating, and marrying.  That’s two books, summarized in four sentences.

Also, let me add that in the movie, Mark Darcy is played by Colin Firth. So… yeah… Need I say more?

The third volume of Bridget Jones’ diary came out recently. And I have just started it. By now, I am reading this because I love the characters and the actors that played them – especially Colin Firth. I love Colin Firth. Did I mention that already? So I don’t really have any expectations about where the story should go, I can’t be disappointed. I just want to read the book. And dream about Colin Firth.

Well, that’s what I thought, until I turned to page 20 or something like that. Up until then, you learn that Bridget is married to Mark and they have a couple of kids. But where is Mark Darcy? He does not appear in these pages, he is barely mentioned. And then, OH, MY!!!!! NOOOOOOOOO! Are you kidding? How can that be??!!!

You won’t believe what happens…. But it would not be right for me to say, so really, you should buy the book. And tell me what you think. Personally, I don’t know how I am going to cope…
