This book should be retitled as Bridget Jones The Unnecessary Sequel Bridget returns as the hapless and can t get it together heroine with plenty of love, work and weight troubles The first book has a happy ending and I thought that was the end of it Since it s so successful, of course the author cannot resist conjuring contrived plot lines for Bridget s second adventure Bridget came across as charming and endearing in the first book but here she becomes annoying and irritating I or the readers love her int he first book because Bridget is not flawless This makes her a very accessible character However, the contrived plot lines of this book has managed to create a gratingly stupid Bridget which I cannot empathise with any.
This is what happens when authors go on beyond the happily ever after last line.
The Colin Firth interview is hilarious You just want to scream at Bridget to shut up and stop putting her foot in every time she opens her mouth Just as wonderful as the first book
Bridget Jones The Edge of Reason Bridget Jones 2 , Helen FieldingBridget Jones The Edge of Reason is a 1999 novel by Helen Fielding, a sequel to her popular Bridget Jones s Diary It chronicles Bridget Jones s adventures after she begins to suspect that her boyfriend, Mark Darcy, is falling for a rich young solicitor who works in the same firm as him, a woman called Rebecca The comic novel follows the characteristic ups and downs of the self proclaimed singleton s first real relationship in several years 2005 20 1990 1996 1999 I don t really know why I still had this book on my TBR because I didn t really like the first book but oh well, I dove right into this one anyways.
Okay, so in Bridget Jones Edge of Reason Bridget starts to suspect that her boyfriend Mark is starting to develop feelings for one of his coworkers, Rebecca Of course this was a huge misunderstanding on her part because he doesn t have any feelings for her at all However, it is Bridget and it wouldn t be a book if she found out that she was wrong right away Nope In the end, she felt foolish for even thinking that and all is right in the world because Rebecca started dating someone else Right Wrong I hated this book so much LE SIGH Like I said, I didn t like the first book so I definitely didn t like this book either It wasn t funny at all to me It s like I was fake laughing just to get out of this book faster I just don t like Bridget at all She was so annoying and frustrating throughout the whole book I didn t care what she went through or said throughout the entire thing I just wanted this book to be over as soon as I started it Spoiler alert wine helped me get through this book A lot of wine.
Overall, I hated this book I will never ever reread this series I will not continue this series no matter what which makes me sad because I hate starting a series and not finishing it but I seriously can t stand Bridget as an MC I m done with this.

I don t think I ll carry on with the series The original Bridget Jones Diary is absolute comedic and chick lit gold and I d recommend just sticking with that one.
What a fucking terrible book My god.
