Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

7:15 am 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 previously feared.
So begins The Edge of Reason, Bridget Jones' hilarious foray into the not-so-sexy realities of relationships, the laughable legions of self-help theories and a television career that would have her model "tiny shorts next to a blow-up of Fergie in gym wear". Picking up where Bridget Jones' Diary left off, everyone's favourite singleton has finally landed her love, Mark Darcy. However, she's finding--among other things--that her dreamboat is less than ideal. Aside from never doing the washing up or foraging through the isles at Tesco, Mark, it seems, has taken an interest in the viperous "jellyfish" Rebecca, who has "thighs like a baby giraffe" and a penchant for boyfriend snatching.

If that isn't enough, Richard "I'm thinking bunny girl! I'm thinking Gladiator! I'm thinking canvassing MP!" Finch, Bridget's smarmy, cocaine-encrusted boss and Executive Producer of Sit Up, wants her to be the show's clown, in effect making her the arse of television. What's more, a builder who has an obsession for large, slimy fish seems to have forgotten about the hole he knocked out in her flat, putting her entire life on display for the neighbours. Not to mention a mother who wants her to go to see Ms. Saigon with a Kikuya tribesman hijacked from Kenya.

Never fear, Bridge's singleton posse--Shazzer, Jude and Tom--are always a phone call away and armed with bottles of Chardonnay, packs of Silk Cut, pizza and a cornucopia of self-help literature. Whether they're decoding acronyms in singles ads (GSOH and WLTM? "Giant sore on head. Willy, limp, thin mollusc."), developing the ground-breaking "Pashima theory" or dolling out unsolicited advice, the FOBs (friends of Bridget) make up most of the comedy.

Although The Edge of Reason is filled with signature B.J. manoeuvres, such as drunken Christmas card writing and wearing an unruly rubber girdle, it's a departure from the original. Throughout most of its 422 pages the plot clips at a steady rate, then, much like Bridget's train of thought, the ending skitters, careens and breaks off into two incoherent tracks--one more absurd than the other. The outcome is a metamorphosed Bridget, one more reminiscent of a British Alley McBeal than the personification of England's everywoman. --Rebekah Warren -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

3 von 3 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Tracy Davis am 28. Juli 2000
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In the sequel to Bridget Jones' "Diary", "The Edge of Reason" picks up almost immediately where the Diary left off: Bridget is with Mark Darcy, and thinks she should be 'happy'. But all is not well: Mark seems more interested in football, Bridget's friends are having problems, her mother is off to Africa, her father is drinking, and a new character, Rebecca (with "thighs like a baby giraffe"), is after Mark. Plus, Bridget is still obsessed with her weight, her smoking, and how many alcohol "units" she consumes. How Bridget copes -- or doesn't -- with all of the above makes for an hilarious read. However, there are some serious moments and some characters that sometimes don't fit well into the novel; for example, Bridget and Shazz's trip to Thailand starts off one way and ends very differently. These minor glitches don't ruin the book, and maybe author Helen Fielding was trying to see if her character learns anything from her trials and tribulations (hint: not quite). The highest comedy point is Bridget's Rome "interview" with Colin Firth: it will make you laugh out loud. (Fielding actually thanks Firth in the acknowledgements.) Definitely worth reading.

Format: Taschenbuch
Endlich ist sie wieder da und sie ist noch immer die Selbe: chaotisch, unpünktlich, unorganisiert, gegen Alkohol, Nikotin und Übergewicht kämpfend und soooo liebenswert.
Wem der erste Band gefallen hat, der wird auch dieses Buch lieben. Aber Achtung: Es kann vorkommen, dass man bei der Lektüre laut lachen muß - wenn man sich dann so wie ich in der U-Bahn befindet, trägt einem dass oft sehr seltsame Blicke der Mitfahrenden ein.
Unbedingt lesen!!

Format: Taschenbuch
I've just finished reading The Edge of Reason, and I am thrilled. I was not able to put the book down before I had finished it. It was really a torture to see Bridget and Mark struggle to get back together, and even though it was obvious how the book was going to end I was worried all the way through. If you thought Bridget Jones's Diary was a winner, then wait till you have read the next episode. I just hope that Helen Fielding is already working on the follow up... Guess I'm kind of co-dependent on Bridget or something like that... :-)

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Karen Bierman Hirsh am 1. März 2000
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Bridget Jones is at it again in Helen Fielding's fabulous follow-up to Bridget Jones' Diary. Edge of Reason follows the same humorous format - each diary entry headed by her caloric intake, number of boyfriends, cigarettes, drinks and minutes since she last had sex.
While the second book is a little out there in the sense of reality (some of Bridget's predicaments are just a tad too over the top and one wonders how she can be SO dense some of the time in life and in love) one still feels for Bridget and the book is a fun read.
Year in Life of Bridget: Pages - not that many, number of calories burned from laughing ?, number of people who begged to borrow book upon completion - at least 100...
The book begins with Bridget's budding relationship with Mark Darcy (sigh), and her neurotic friends Shaz, Jude and Tom are back with a vengeance. She has read EVERY self help book available but still must figure out how to keep her man (gahhh!), her career and her figure while fighting mad hair, scary pants, money issues, crazy boss (fwaw) and monster-woman Rebecca (who is after Mark Darcy). Bridget must also learn to live the life as a Singleton and not hate the Smug Married's (her conversations with married pal Magda are quite funny), while also dealing with her wacky mother and her friends.
The book takes place over a year or so in Bridget's life - once she has her man, can she keep him and her sanity? Once again, Bridget's exploits will make you laugh and make you realize that you don't have it that bad. All in all - the wait was certainly worth it.
