Bridget Jones (Bridget Jones, #2) by Helen Fielding

Bridget Jones (Bridget Jones, #2)

Lurching from the cappuccino bars of Notting Hill to the blissed-out shores of Thailand, Bridget Jones searches for The Truth in spite of pathetically unevolved men, insane dating theories, and Smug Married advice ("'I'm just calling to say in the potty! In the potty! Well, do it in Daddy's hand, then!'"). She experiences a zeitgeist-esque Spiritual Epiphany somewhere between the pages of "How to Find the Love You Want Without Seeking It" ("can s...

  • Suzanne
    The Colin Firth interview is hilarious! You just want to scream at Bridget to shut up and stop putting her foot in every time she opens her mouth! Just as wonderful as the first book!
  • Aishu Rehman
    Funnier and more accomplished than the original diary, and in fact takes recognition humor into a new dimension. Bridget Jones The Edge of Reason is a glorious read, and there is a laugh on every page.
  • Lisa
    This book should be retitled as Bridget Jones: The Unnecessary Sequel. Bridget returns as the hapless and can't-get-it-together heroine with plenty of love, work and weight troubles. The first book has a happy ending and I thought that was the end of it. Since it's so successful, of course the author cannot resist conjuring contrived plot lines for Bridget's second adventure. Bridget came across as charming and endearing in the first book but her...

    I don't really know why I still had this book on my TBR because I didn't really like the first book.. but oh well, I dove right into this one anyways.Okay, so in Bridget Jones: Edge of Reason Bridget starts to suspect that her boyfriend Mark is starting to develop feelings for one of his coworkers, Rebecca. Of course this was a huge misunderstanding on her part because he doesn’t have any feelings for her at all. However, it is Bridget and it w...
    I hate say this but I hate this book , can be much better if Helen fielding just wrote bridge Jones's diary and stop

    What a fucking terrible book. My god.
  • Elizabeth
    I desperately love Bridget, I really do, but the story just wasn't as funny the second time around. I never thought I would tire of British humour, but - while The Edge of Reason is still VERY FUNNY - the plot line relies a lot on miscommunication stemming from the characters bumbling about and being unable to speak candidly about a situation or say what they really mean. Gets a bit old.I don't think I'll carry on with the series. The original Br...
  • Jessica
    Not quite as good as the original, nonetheless, spending more time with Bridget and her friends as they count alcohol units and worry about what underpants to wear on a date is a pleasant diversion.
  • Manybooks
    Although Bridget Jones is still a fun and delightfully unpredictable character in this second instalment of Helen Fielding's series, there is simply too much presented, featured exaggeration and resulting disbelief for me to be able to totally and utterly (without reservations) enjoy The Edge of Reason. For while with the first book, with Bridget Jones's Diary, although Bridget often was indeed outrageous and even at times (and perhaps even rathe...
  • Stephanie
    After finishing Bridget Jones's Diary for the second time, I turned my attention to Bridge Jones: The Edge of Reason, by Helen Fielding, which I'd never read before. I have to say that with both books, there were definitely laugh-out-loud moments, although there were more with Edge of Reason than Diary.I'm embarrassed to admit it took me at least to the middle of the book to realize that this book was a take-off of Persuasion. And once again, I a...
  • Kimberly Carrington-Fox
    La Fielding se saca de la manga una trama liosa y con muchos altibajos, perdiendo mucha de la gracia y frescura del pirmer libro. Mark Darcy y la madre de Bridget son lo mejor (por favor, la madre es ahostiablemente graciosa). A Bridget a veces la matabas, a veces le dabas un achuchón. Al menos te entretiene y, si lo comparas con la peli, es una maravilla (la peli es es-pan-to-sa -> salvo Colin Firth #AyOmá)
  • Amanda NEVER MANDY
    This shall be short and sweet since it just continues on from the first. One of the issues I mentioned previously (love triangle) evaporated. The other issue (far-fetched plot) is still present so I knocked a star off for it. I have the next one in the series waiting on my nightstand so I am hoping this last little issue disappears.STILL LOVE ME SOME MARK DARCY!
  • Marina
    This story turned into love novel, but it's still great chick lit, great comedy and great story. Bridget is struggling with her relationship with Mark, had serious problems and struggling with her job. The end was satisfying and I was laughing out load during the feast.
  • Joy
    This was not as good as the first one...
  • Devon Hernandez
    Fits of uncontrollable laughter. That would describe me reading this book. What a great followup to the first one! For those of you who have only seen the movie and not read the book, warning: the movie script cuts quite a bit out, and changes quite a bit. For instance, the whole lesbian thing in the movie? Never happened. The "other woman" who Bridget thought was after Mark really was after Mark in the book. Daniel Cleaver barely makes an appear...
  • Charlotte May
    3.5 stars! I think I am either becoming more accustomed to the writing style or this one was just so much better than the first!I was actually interested in the characters and there was a definite storyline in this one, with more action and events to keep me hooked. What with Bridget's drug scandal in Thailand, the ongoing on-off relationship with Mark Darcy and the brief appearances of Daniel (though I can't help but imagine them as Colin Firth ...

    Перша частина мені була смішнішою. У цій хоч і були смішні моменти, але я більше задумувалася над тим, як же можна бути такою наївною, чи як можна напитися, щось зробити, а потім геть нічого не пам‘ятати...Якось це... хммм, навіть не знаю. Коротше, щось...

    *Atención SPOILER si no te has leído el primer libro*Bridget Jones: Sobreviviré, es la segunda parte de la trilogía de Bridget Jones escrita por Helen Fielding. Todo parece irle bien a la protagonista. Está con el hombre al que ama, Mark Darcy, y su vida parece ir sobre ruedas. Sumergida en manuales de auto-ayuda, iremos descubriendo junto a ella su vida y sus andanzas. Para los fans de la película, lo cierto es que el libro no tiene absolu...
  • Anne
    I enjoyed Edge of Reason a bit more than the original. I think it had a little more depth (and I use that term veeery loosely) than the first Bridget Jones book. She grows a tiny bit as a character, and finally seems to come to terms with what it means to be an adult in love. Again, she grows a tiny bit...we're not talking about any huge spiritual epiphany here. This is, after all, Bridget Jones we're talking about. As a big fan of the BBC versio...

    Fun read.
  • Miglė Keliotytė
    What a wonderful book. Found myself again laughing from Bridget so hard I couldn't breathe. This book really lightened up my days when I needed. So sad I finished it so fast.
  • Jennifer
    Not as good as the first but still worthy of attention.
  • Evelina
    Rolig och underhållande och väldigt härligt att få återse Bridget Jones! Länk till recensionen:

    „{...} meilė žmogaus neištinka, meilę žmogus turi pats užsitarnauti“. Iš tikro, labai sunku vertinti serijos dalis. Jeigu vertinčiau dalį kaip atskirą knygą, nepriklausomą nuo kitų istorijų, tai tikriausiai vertinimas nelabai skirtųsi nuo pirmosios dalies žvaigždučių skaičiaus (tyliai nuėjau į savo įvertinimų istoriją ir pažiūrėjau, kad tų žvaigždučių buvo viso labo dvi...). Vis dėlto, jeigu lyginčiau dalis ...
  • Kathrin
    This is certainly an entertaining read that comes with a few cringe-worthy downsides. I got the book from my local library which is why I probably don't mind some of its flaws and will continue to read the series. I love the fact that Colin Firth stars in the movies while Bridget swoons over him in the books. The character of Bridget seems to be the strength as well as the weakness of the novel. While I like her attitude sometimes and she is an e...

    Bridžita, Bridžita... Nuotaikingas, kartais veikiantis depresuojančiai o kartais neįtikėtinas jos gyvenimas. Pripažinkime, juk kiekviena savyje turime savo Bridžę, kuri prisižada visko, prisigalvoja, netaip interpretuoja, laikosi dietų bei jaudinasi dėl svorio, būnam feministės, bet norime ir tobulų vyrų. Koncentruotas gyvenimo marazmas ir laiminga pabaiga :D
  • Ciarán West
    Helen Fielding is basically the world's greatest feminist. In her first Bridget Jones book, she taught us that no woman is complete unless she has the love of a foppish, sub-Hugh Grant, barely heterosexual posh man to complete her. To add to the confusion, Bridget is in love with the actor Colin Firth, who they end up casting in the film as her actual love interest, Mark Darcy. If that wasn't confusing enough, they throw in Hugh actual Grant as t...
