Bridget Jones´s Diary - The Edge of Reason
The first book showed many women how true love can conquer all and that we shall always have faith, even through the hardest times, just as Bridget always did. She was not at all perfect, as in pretty, rich and bright. She was average, just like most of us are, and struggling with her career, maniacal boss and always trying to get through the day in one piece.
Bridget Jones’s Diary ended with her riding into the sunset with Mark Darcy, the man of her dreams. No more than four weeks after that, conflicts start causing trouble in their relationship and Bridget’s so-called snobbish highbrow friend Rebecca is all over Mark, inviting him to her expensive weekend- and cocktail parties. To make a long story short: Rebecca steals Mark from confused Bridget.
As if Bridget’s days were not hard enough with losing Mark, her weight going in the wrong direction, her self-help books not helping, her mother always having a bad timing, getting a huge hole in the wall of her living-room after failed attempt to enlarge, an extremely embarrassing interview with Colin Firth (real life star?), she is now being arrested for drug possession in Bangkok, where she went in the first place to get away from her bothers.
The Edge of Reason is actually also a diary of Bridget Jones, so it is herself who is telling us all the events of her life. She writes very incoherently, ridiculous, and many words are simplified, so it is very realistic but not at all annoyingly confusing. Getting lost in the story’s spider-web of events and laughing at bizarre situations are the best bits of the book.
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 thirty-something simply living her life and taking advice from her ´singleton´ friends. This could actually be one of the very few books to actually tell us how much pressure there is on women in their thirties who have been too busy with their careers to develop a family, with their biological clocks ticking, putting themselves out there to find true love, but only to find heartbreak time after time.
Although Bridget suffers from several misfortunes, it’s never serious enough to make you sad. If you have read both Bridget Jones’s Diary and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, you’ll be familiar with the parallels in the plot lines. And of course the sequel was none less of a hit than the first. At the end of the day, it’s all about having faith in yourself, knowing what you want and... Ladda upp arbete
