Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination by Helen Fielding

Helen Fielding (Bridget Jones' Diary) brings us a new heroine, one Olivia Joules, an international reporter and adventurer who can speak several languages and doesn't need a man. Her unbelievable stories has her demoted from the international beat to the Style pages, and she's sent to Miami to cover the launch of a new face cream. There she meets a film producer whom she's convinced is really Osama bin Laden. Soon she's traveling the world trying to uncover his terrorist plots, involving her not just in the jet set lifestyle, but danger and adventure as well. Or is her overactive imagination running amok again? Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination has received mixed reviews. The Independent says, "It's utterly ridiculous, and all the more fun for it: a technicolour blast to liberate the grey commuting mind."
