Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason is a souvenir, a memory of the first time I visited Ahmedabad after marriage. I picked it up at the Ahmedabad airport, as soon as the words ‘Same Bridget. Brand new diary’ leapt at me from the bookshelf. I liked Bridget Jones’s Diary quite a bit, and that helped in picking up the sequel easily.
Bridget Jones’s Diary ended with Bridget being happy to have a boyfriend (finally!). The sequel begins just after that. The sequel too is just as hilarious as the original book, and made me laugh out loud at places. It is pure chicklit, though, and sometimes, Bridget’s antics seemed just mindless. I really wanted to bang on her head at various times and tell her to get a life.
It is well written and a simple, easy, quick read, a light read perfect for curling up with and relaxing on a tired day. It is entertaining, no doubt, if you keep aside the ‘mindless’ part.
All in all, it is a book that I quite liked reading and enjoyed.
My rating: 3.5 stars
I read this book for the OT 2010 Challenge. Stopover: Englnad.
