Product Details


“It’s hard to imagine a more appealing heroine than Olivia.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“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
