Bridget Jones - The Edge of Reason

Lurching from the cappuccino bars of Notting Hill to the blissed-out shores of Thailand, everyone's favorite Singleton Bridget Jones begins her search for The Truth in spite of pathetically unevolved men, insane dating theories, and Smug Married advice. She experiences a zeitgeist-esque Spiritual Epiphany somewhere between the pages of How to...  more » (can self-help books really help self?), protective custody, and a lightly chilled Chardonnay.

I liked this book about as much as the first one, though this one was a lot more different from the movie than the first one was.

Like in the first one, I found myself constantly criticizing Bridget for everything I see wrong with her—her lack of self-esteem, her inablity to see the consequences of her actions, and her continual tardiness. I mean, I'm a continually tardy person myself, but I wouldn't do something stupid like go out shopping when my plane is due to leave in a few hours. That's just asking for trouble. Heck, I refrain from leaving the house the entire day I'm leaving to go anywhere till I have to leave to catch the plane.

In any case, though I found myself constantly scolding her in my head, her actions and those of her friends, are amusing indeed. The fact I'd find myself chuckling at Bridget's stupidity, despite the fact that I thought she was an idiot, allowed me to give this book a rating of 8 anyway. :)

Now that I've read both Bridget books, I've got a small 50 page copy of Bridget Jones's Guide to Life to read as part of a BookCrossing bookring. Looks like fun!

A fun book, but falls short of being as amusing as the first Bridget Jones book. It is still a funny and quirky tale with an original character that one can't help but feel for.

I think I enjoyed this book even more than the first one. The diary enties were longer in general and I think that made the book flow a bit better than the first. It is funny and every woman can relate to Bridget in one way or another. If you are fan of chick lit this is definitely a must read.

Very enjoyable. Not quite as good as the first one (when are sequals ever as good?) but a very fun read. If you enjoyed the first book, you will like this one too.

You know you are getting old when you admit that the book was WAY better than the movie.
