5.0 out of 5 stars Loved! May 27 2014

I loved this book! I was a bit apprehensive as I am a humanitarian myself but it was actually well researched. A great light funny fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a pleasant surprise! June 8 2002
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I loved Bridget Jones and Edge of Reason, but this is my favorite of the three. This book is a fascinating study of how anyone, even those assumed to be shallow, can give up their comfort for a life of service. I never expected this from Fielding.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meandering and slow May 18 2002
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I really enjoyed the fast pace and wit of the BJD books. Cause Celeb has none of the charm or pace of her later novels. I nearly put it down many times, and after finishing it, I really wish I hadn't wasted my time.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointed May 13 2002
By meghan
Format:Paperback
i was psyched to find this book cause i loved bridget jones diary so much and im a huge fan of "brit-girl" books. this one started out horribly. i had to read in about 5 chapters to get past that "oh my god i cant keep reading" feeling. the middle of the book was great. i saw alot of myself in rosie in terms of her messed up relationship with oliver. then when orourke was introduced, i was like YES something will happen! then the end of it DRAGGED on and on and on. i was excited when i thought that oliver and orourke would butt heads, but aside from that one scene, nothing. and then she was watching him sleep at the end? no. i will not read the sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars good but unbalanced April 4 2002
Format:Paperback
I really enjoyed Cause Celeb -- there were parts of many different characters which were extremely true to life and the book was quite funny overall. However, I thought Ms. Fielding left a little to be desired in the development of the relationship between Rosie and her significant other (don't worry, I'm not ruining anything). She gives us one spectacular scene and then we are put on hold indefinitely. Altogether, though, a fun, light, and enjoyable read.

2.0 out of 5 stars What a let down... March 25 2002
By jpt816
Format:Audio Cassette
After having listened to both Bridget Jones novels (beautifully read by Tracie Bennett), Cause Celeb was a huge let down. It was the anti-Bridget Jones. The subject matter was heavy and the story was often times boring. Worse still, was Bernadette Quigley's narration....extremely bland.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shameless Rip-Off March 23 2002
By jumpy1
Format:Paperback
...From the preening, two-timing celebrity boyfriend to going to jail on a set-up etc. it's really a shameful rip-off of Kathy Lette... but the humor just doesn't come close to Lette's originality. Most people reading this Brit Chick stuff now don't realize Lette started in the late 80s and had all of this material covered by the end of the 90s, when Bridget Jones caused a craze. But did that stop me from reading this all the way through? No!!! It is a good enough story about a selfish girl who learns to think of others and get a handle on what's really important in life (blah blah blah) and reading it helped me get through a few airports. If I'd been at home I think I'd have put it down a lot sooner, though.

5.0 out of 5 stars hope this starts a new trend! March 23 2002
By momazon
Format:Paperback
Fielding's "Bridget Jones' Diary" started a trend of wannabes, so reading this work written well before "BJD" was surprising and refreshing. Rosie Richardson is a more compassionate, less self-centered Bridget who leaves her shambled lovelife with a celebrity in London when the humanitarian need in Africa calls her.
She takes a training course in interational aid and goes to a fake country called Nambula. She is there for 4 years, and in 1989 she has been promoted to Aid Coordinator of their relief camp ---- just when a famine seems inevitable due to natural disasters and a missing shipment from the United Nations.
Rosie has an idea to save the Nambulan people that just might work, but she has to face her past in order to make it succeed.
This is an excellent book!
