Picking up where her blockbuster bestselling Bridget Jones's Diary left off, The Edge of Reason finds Bridget in an up and down relationship with Mark Darcy. It’s four weeks later, and already the honeymoon is over: the man of her dreams votes conservative and folds his clothes at night, making Bridget feel pressured to do so as well. But all of these problems pale in comparison to Rebecca, a beautiful, man-hunting arch-nemesis without a girlfriend code of ethics when it comes to stealing another woman's man. As always, Bridget's best Singleton friends Jude and Shaz are there to give her advice from the pages of Getting the Love Your Want and Keeping the Love You Find with some unexpected results.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 2/7/2014

    " I found this sequel to "Bridget Jones's Diary" just as hilarious and entertaining as the first one! I laughed out loud in several places and now find myself very sad to be parted with Bridget Jones, Mark Darcy, Jude, Sharon, Magda, Tom, Bridget's parents, and all the other characters of Helen Fielding's world. Jane Austen fans will love the subtle plot elements in both books; "Bridget Jones's Diary" is loosely based on "Pride and Prejudice" and "The Edge of Reason" has hints of "Persuasion." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 2/4/2014

    " It took me a while to get into this book, the diary format made me crazy for a while. But, once I got past all that. I found myself chuckling quite a bit and there is one incident in the book that had me literally rolling. Enjoyable sequel, I can see how this format worked for the movies, it's a difunctional/functional friends is probably the best description I can give it. If that's something you see your self enjoying I'd recommend it because it will deliver. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 2/3/2014

    " For an easy read, I really enjoyed this book. Yes, it was over the top and crazy, but I <3 Mark. I'm so glad this book focused on him and left Daniel (for the most part) out. And the bits about Colin Firth were hysterical! Loved the part about watching Pride and Prejudice to see the scene of him in the lake, LOL! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kayla | 1/31/2014

    " another 3.5 star! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ivanesca | 1/29/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Dunphey | 1/12/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emmy's Grammy (Susan) | 1/11/2014

    " This book was a pleasant surprise to me! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shae | 12/23/2013

    " Everything I loved about the original book lacked in this one. Not only does it seemd forced but it's steps so far past unbelievable and obnoxious it almost ruins the greatness of the original novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Connie | 12/4/2013

    " Not nearly as good as the original, though still enjoyable. There are some funny parts, but the entire Thailand trip was so out there I could hardly push past it to the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Madeleine | 10/30/2013

    " TCL Call #: F FIELDING "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer W | 9/18/2013

    " Not as funny as the diary. But still funny in a this can't possibly happen to anyone type of way.The Edge of Reason "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alice Ball | 9/12/2013

    " A very poor sequel to a charming, genre-molding original. Un-interesting and unbelievable plot twists. I didn't care enough about Bridget to fully enjoy this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 9/9/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tasneem | 7/14/2013

    " This was a fun read, but I think I was starting to get annoyed with Bridget by the end. She was rather pathetic. But I loved how her nightmare's bright spot was her losing weight. That struck a cord with me, since I've struggled with weight my whole life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheri | 5/17/2013

    " Next to Bridget Jone's Diary this is one of my all time favs. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patricia | 11/7/2012

    " Almost glad I have finished this--too long for me--got bogged down in the middle!! Just an easy OK book to read!! Won`t be keeping it on my bookshelf--it will be going to a charity shop. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lauren | 7/11/2012

    " In the first one Bridget was funny and entertaining dealing with things many females deal with. In the second one she has not grown or matured. She comes off needy and neurotic (IMO)and I would definately not want to spend any time around her! "
