Cause Celeb - Helen Fielding

I think this year I will keep track of everything I read and write about some of the more memorable books. I really like Helen Fielding and the characters she writes. This is the third book of hers I've read. I think I am draw to the women she writes always falling for the emotionally unavailable man. I enjoyed this read immensely. The main character ditches her posh life in England to be an aide worker in Northern Africa (after breaking up with her emotionally unavailable boyfriend). It isn't exactly chick-lit but probably wouldn't appeal to the average man. On a scale of one to five its a solid three and a half!

Those who've read Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones's Diary and its sequel must have wondered if the author could tell a similarly sharp and humorous story without the incomparable Bridget scribbling her disjointed journal entries. Cause Celeb, an earlier novel, is certainly different in style. It doesn't follow a diary format, it's not a running commentary about all crises experienced every five minutes, and it won't have you thinking in terms of acronyms and missing prepositions. V.g.
