4.0 von 5 Sternen Bridget is Back!
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...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Lacks charm of the original
The first novel, Bridget Jones' Diary, was interesting for being new -- a chatty, self-obsessed memoir that was a send-up of insecure women who are not in control of their lives, who are desperate for a man to give them the value that they should recognize that they already have, and that are suffering from co-dependence on their friends/family. Bridget was mad for...

(REAL NAME)   
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 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!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen V.g., 17. März 2002
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (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... :-)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Book- vg, number of times laughed - too many to count, 1. März 2000
Von 
Karen Bierman Hirsh (Greenwich, CT) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
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.

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....

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Sequel That Delivers, 29. Februar 2000
Helen Fielding has done it again! With all of the brilliance and comic genius she displayed in Bridget Jones's Diary, this second book Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, is just as much of a wild ride as the first. It is true the character of Bridget speaks primarily to single women, but there is no doubt any reader could enjoy the silly escapades that result from this thirtysomething simply living her life and taking advice from her 'singleton' friends. Frequent references to current events and trends in England and America make this diary easy to believe as non-fiction, although of course it is not. Getting lost in it's spider-web of events is only half the fun - when nearing the end, you will want it to slow down, as to preserve your need for more. Another highlight in this volume is the character of her mother taking a back-burner role, and letting the real star shine along with her friends and boyfriends alike. Read this book, laugh out loud, and be challenged to find at least one way Bridget doesn't remind you of someone you know. Perhaps even yourself!

4.0 von 5 Sternen I was Persuaded, 18. September 2000
Von 
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!

5.0 von 5 Sternen I definitely loved this book. It was just soo funny and true, 28. Juli 2001
Von Ein Kunde
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.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Lacks charm of the original, 10. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde
The first novel, Bridget Jones' Diary, was interesting for being new -- a chatty, self-obsessed memoir that was a send-up of insecure women who are not in control of their lives, who are desperate for a man to give them the value that they should recognize that they already have, and that are suffering from co-dependence on their friends/family. Bridget was mad for dieting, mini-skirting, and getting herself into absurdly funny situations that made the book blend into one huge laugh. The Edge of Reason has lost the charm of the first book, so that I found (you may not) the characters annoying -- too much self-pity and dodging into alcohol-oblivions. Bridget hasn't grown as we like to see characters develop into more mature perspectives. She's devolved, getting silly rather than amusing. Her relationship with Mark Darcy is shallow. There is no real intimacy beyond the constant shagging (not that anyone would begrudge her that). Mark and Bridget don't share at any depth. It's all surface, and Bridget is madly insecure about her relationship (no wonder), given to whining and fantasizing doom, when just sitting down and having an honest talk about things would set the two up for an adult relationship. I realize it is meant to be funny, but it gets tedious awfully fast. When Mark tells Bridget that he loves her, I want to shout "WHY? " There are still some very funny scenes here, described with the original Bridget style. Bridget gets into a predicament on vacation that is well presented but gets solved too easily. Wellington, who wanders into her mother's life, is terribly interesting and disappears far too soon. Mark Darcy comes off the hero, but he seems to be in all the scenes, with Bridget co-dependent, desperate, and foolish. I'm hoping the next sequel allows Bridget to grow up, take charge of her life, get a better job (she deserves it), and get some self-respect.
