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!

I had just arrived in London to visit my parents and was browsing through a WHSmith when I discovered a huge display of "The Edge of Reason". Because I live in America 99.9% of the year, I wasn't up on my Bridget Jones news to know that there was a sequel. Helen Fielding proved a good sequel does exist. I loved Bridget all over again and this time, I especially loved her girlfriends. Especially the male-bashing but secretely male-needy Shaz. (Doesn't everyone have a friend like her?!) I loved all the great references to possitive self-talk borrowed from a cheaper form of therapy known as "self-help books". I must admit that I was standing in the middle of the great dining hall of Harrod's reading Bridget's brilliant journalistic debut interview and laughing outloud. "The Edge of Reason" will take you from plot to plot laughing and amazed. Bridget has one wild year ahead and this is one wildly funny book. If you loved the first book, you will love the sequel. Thank you BJ for giving women a new voice of insanity!

I found this on my wife's dressing table and I have not been able to put it down since! I thought it was going to general chick flick stuff! But no! It has given me a genuine insight into the dilemas faced by the modern woman about town! Will recommend to my friend Don.

Format: Paperback
The Edge of Reason is a worthy sequel to Fielding's Bridget Jones' Diary. It's funny, exciting at parts and an interesting exploration into a bit of history (Labour's rise to power, princess Diana's tragic death). It's everything you'd want the sequel to be.
However, paradoxically, that's how it disappoints. It deals with the same plot lines from the previous book, mainly the unnecessary estrangement of Bridget and Darcy, worries about weight and run-ins with her extrovert mother. Fielding plays it safe, and in doing this fails to explore new places with her character.
Nevertheless, a readable novel that you'll dip into again and again.

Format: Hardcover
An immensely engaging, entertaining book, this is by turns hilariously funny (the interview with Colin Firth is a particular delight) and, surprisingly, deeply affecting - striking straight to the heart of the 30-something and of modern society.
The Austen parody is even more successful than in the first "Diary", by virtue of its subtlety - it is breathtakingly clever, but also pleasingly irreverent, and written with the same sense of communicated enjoyment as Austen's own work.
Fielding has it all in this novel: vivid characters (a new set of friends for everyone who encounters the book!), a superb evocation of late 20th century life, deft, clever, unpretentious and quite uproarious humour, and a light touch in creating an effortless classic which remains in the mind much longer than the average relationship of the protagonists!
Definitely the book to cheer up a dull British November... or, one would imagine, a stint in a Thai prison...

I really enjoyed reading this book, although it was not as good as the first one. I did laugh as much reading this book as I did when read first one, but last book was not near as frustrating as this one. half the time I held my breath in nervousity and frustration over Brigdet's unreasonable behavior, half the time had to force myself not to shout to the book to stop being such a silly cow.

Since my native tongue is not English I had some difficulties with the British slang, and the many adjectives, but once I really got in to the book, that was not a real problem.
If yoy are not already addicted to Bridget Jones, you will be after have read this book.

I feel a little behind the times having only just read both of the bridget jones books but it's better late than never. I managed to read Edge of Reason cover to cover in just over 24 hours (and somehow managed to fit in going to work as well)Un putdowanble. Theres a little bit of Bridget in all of us, forget self help books, Bridget Jones' Diary has everything they have, making us realise we are not on our own in our insecurities, but also has great entertainment value. Well worth a read.
