Book Review: Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason

Author:  Helen Fielding

 Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason

Summary:  From  With another devastatingly hilarious, ridiculous, unnervingly accurate take on modern womanhood, Bridget Jones is back. (v.g.)

Monday 27 January

"7:15 a.m. Hurrah! The wilderness years are over. For four weeks and five days now have been in functional relationship with adult male, thereby proving am not love pariah as recently feared."

Wednesday 5 March

"7:08 p.m. Am assured, receptive, responsive woman of substance. My sense of self comes not from other people but . . .from . . .myself? That can't be right."

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 Find the Love You Want Without Seeking It (can self-help books really help self?), protective custody, and a lightly chilled Chardonnay.

What I Liked:  I am a huge fan of Bridget.  I loved this follow up to the first book.  I like how she refers to multiple self-help books and continues to make herself better.

What I Didn’t Like:  I’m not an irresponsible traveler.  I don’t like that Bridget was.

Overall Thoughts:  I love Bridget Jones and I loved this book.

Final Rating:  Gold Star

Recommended?:  Yes!
