better than the first!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (Paperback)I normally don't read sequels as when there's a happy ending in the first book I prefer to just leave it there than picking up the second part but I'd heard so much about this book that in the end I had to read it out of curiosity.
Though many of the people I had spoken to about this book thought that it wasn't as good as the original I totally disagree. I love this book even more than the diary!!
I just had to find out what happened between Bridget and Mark Darcy. The only disappointment was that Bridget's best friend Tom doesn't seem to appear as much as I'd liked.
I loved the way that Mark Darcy is based not only on Colin Firth but characters he has played in the past, not only Mr Darcy but Paul Ashworth in Fever Pitch. This was great as it gave Mark Darcy more character and wasn't just a copy of Jane Austen's Darcy.
I laughed more and I cried during the Persuasion chapter and cared more for Bridget than I did in the first book.
But I must thank Helen Fielding because she has introduced me to Jane Austen who I'd never considered reading before. I'm very grateful thank you!
