Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (Movie Tie-In)by Helen Fielding
Synopses & Reviews
The #1 national bestseller is now a major motion picture, a follow-up to the box-office smash Bridget Jones's Diary.
Monday 27 January
"7:15 A.M. 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 recently feared."
Lurching from the cappuccino bars of Notting Hill to the blissed-out shores of Thailand, everyone's favorite Singleton Bridget Jones begins her search for The Truth in spite of pathetically unevolved men, insane dating theories, and Smug Married advice. She experiences a zeitgeist-esque Spiritual Epiphany somewhere between the pages of How to Find the Love You Want Without Seeking It (can self-help books really help self?), protective custody, and a lightly chilled Chardonnay.
"[A] brilliant return to the quirky world of Bridget Jones." Bust Magazine
"[T]remendously funny and invested with a large, melancholy intelligence." Boston Sunday Globe
"[Fielding's] sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, necessarily lacks the joy of discovery that accompanied the original, but its heroine is still great company..." Anita Gates, The New York Times Book Review
"Bridget Jones is a joy and comfort, and Helen Fielding is bloody great." Mademoiselle
"One of the most enchanting heroines to ever overdraw her bank account." USA Today
"Glorious...a sequel that outshines its predecessor." San Francisco Chronicle
"[F]or all of Bridget's misguidedness, it's the familiarity of her predicaments that make her so endearing. We laugh, but not without a hint of self-knowledge." Susan Llewelyn Leach, Christian Science Monitor
"Funnier and more accomplished than the original diary, and in fact takes recognition humor into a new dimension. Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason is a glorious read, and there is a laugh on every page." London Sunday Times Books
"The Edge of Reason tells us where Ms. Jones' legs lead her, but little about why she's still so afraid to follow her heart. (Grade: C)" Entertainment Weekly
"This sequel to Bridget Jones's Diary actually has more of a plot than the original, though Bridget is still the dumb, ditzy journalist wannabe in search of a real relationship....Fans will adore this." Library Journal
"Where the earlier Bridget had been merely desperate, now she is desperate and rather chillingly self-abasing." Chris Lehmann, The Wall Street Journal
The #1 national bestseller is now available in this movie tie-in edition just in time for the release of Miramax Films' highly anticipated sequel to Bridget Jones's Diary, starring Rene Zellweger, Hugh Grant, and Colin Firth.
