First published in 1999, The Edge of Reason is the sequel to Helen Fielding's number one best-selling Bridget Jones's Diary. It has been turned into a film starring Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant. Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason is followed by Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy. The Wilderness Years are over! But not for long. At the end of Bridget Jones's Diary, Bridget hiccuped off into the sunset with man-of-her-dreams Mark Darcy. Now, in The Edge of Reason, she discovers what it is like when you have the man of your dreams actually in your flat and he hasn't done the washing-up, not just the whole of this week, but ever. Lurching through a morass of self-help-book theories and mad advice from Jude and Shazzer, struggling with a boyfriend-stealing ex-friend with thighs like a baby giraffe, an 8ft hole in the living-room wall, a mother obsessed with boiled-egg peelers, and a builder obsessed with large reservoir fish, Bridget embarks on a spiritual epiphany, which takes her from the cappuccino queues of Notting Hill to the palm- and magic-mushroom-kissed shores of ...Bridget is back. V.g.

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


'Bridget Jones's phenomenal success is not just because of her creator's brilliant wit, comic timing and social observation, but because she captures what - alas - it is like to be female ... I laughed out loud many time while reading The Edge of Reason. Fielding is excellent at a mixture of perception and comedy, capturing thoughts everyone has but hasn't actually expressed' Sally Emerson, Daily Mail 'Fielding has produced a genuinely original fictional voice. Like Anita Loos before her or, perhaps more pertinently, E. M. Delafield in her Diary of a Provincial Lady, she has created a devastatingly funny parody of her life and times ... Any woman of a certain age can recognize elements of Bridget in herself and will have enormous fun trying to spot them in the book' Rachel Simhon, Daily Telegraph 'Bridget Jones is no mere fictional character, she's the Spirit of the Age' Melanie McDonagh, Evening Standard 'Could Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason really be as funny as its predecessor? The answer is yes ... Bridget, the original Singleton, is on ripping form in the sequel ... But she is far more than the patron saint of single women: she is everyman, or rather, everyperson' Virginia Blackburn, Express 'Helen Fielding has created the most enchanting heroine for the millennium' Jilly Cooper 'If you loved Bridget Jones's Diary, you'll love this; there is no diminution of the freshness or fun, or of Fielding's underlying intelligence. Success has not spoiled her -- she has simply gained in confidence and aplomb ... Fielding has a seam here she can mine endlessly until she herself gets bored, which I dare say will be long before her readers do' Mail on Sunday 'Bridget is probably the most successful comic creation of this decade, the most controversial and talked-about female fictional character since Lolita ... Bridget terminology has slipped into common parlance ... She is still on superb form; get someone to buy you this book for Christmas, read it through in one afternoon, hoot out loud at the many v. good bits' Stephanie Merritt, Observer 'Funnier and more accomplished than the original diary, and in fact takes recognition humour into a new dimension ... A glorious read, and there is a laugh on every page' Sunday Times 'Austen, as before, in Fielding's model, radically but affectionately updated ... There is, to be honest, a bit of Bridget Jones in a lot of the women and men of a certain generation, and to have those aspects so affectionately rendered, and both ridiculed and subversively celebrated, is a welcome treat' Robert Potts, TLS

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wiedersehen macht Freude 19. März 2004
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!!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Bridget is Back! 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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen V.g. 17. März 2002
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... :-)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Die erste, die beste, das original... Volume II 31. Dezember 2005
Ich hab ja schon beim ersten Teil gelacht wie ein yorkshire terrier, aber der zweite teil ist einfach nur zum schießen...
Was soll man sagen, wenn Brigdet Jones draufsteht, ist auch Brigdet Jones drin...gewohnt chaotisch, man kann kaum glauben, wie eine einzelne frau sich so schwer im leben tut. aber was solls, für uns sehr unterhaltsam.
Wärmstens zu empfehlen....

4.0 von 5 Sternen Nette Fortsetzung 2. September 2006
Von Christian von Montfort HALL OF FAME REZENSENT
Es geht weiter im Tagebuch von Bridget Jones, der Reporterin, bei der so nichts so die richtig klappt im Leben. Auch in "The Edge of Reason/ Am Rande des Wahnsinns" geht wieder so einiges schief. Die Art, wie sie das Interview mit ihrem Traum-Schauspieler Colin Firth versaut, den sie alles fragen darf außer zu "Pride & Prejudice", ist einfach zum Totlachen. Ob bei der Liebe, dem Abnehmen, dem Rauchen oder Ärger bei der Renovierung - Bridget verzweifelt an den kleinen Gemeinheiten des Lebens, doch genau das macht sie so sympathisch.

This book is great. I read it the day I got it. These things that always happen to Bridget; she is always getting into trouble and it always turns out right even though she makes a fool of herself. I would recommend this book to every woman that is single, not smug married. It just has so much truth in it and it helps you to laugh a little whenever life is not what you want it to be: in perfect order and harmony, but still a lot of fun.... And her new boyfriend is definitely better than the last on in the first book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen I was Persuaded 18. September 2000
Von Lectrice
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Wasn't sure if I would like this installment as much as the first but I can't deny that I laughed out loud just as much this time. My favorite moment, though, was when I realized that Fielding was doing a gloss on another of my favorite Austen books, Persuasion. Actually I had just watched the wonderful film version on TV the night before I started the book and couldn't miss the parallels (of course if I had paid attention to the reviews I might have realized sooner and picked up the book before it became paperback). Anyway, a truly diverting read. Am looking forward to Helen Fielding's next hilarious book. And of course there's always the much-anticipated movie of Bridget Jones where we can watch poor Bridget embarrass herself over Mark Darcy all over again!

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.
