The Wilderness Years are over. But not for long. At the end of Bridget Jones's Diary, Bridget hiccuped off into the sunset with man-of-her-dreams Mark Darcy. Now, in The Edge of Reason, she discovers what it is like when you have the man of your dreams actually in your flat and he hasn't done the washing-up, not just the whole of this week, but ever.
Lurching through a morass of self-help-book theories and mad advice from Jude and Shazzer, struggling with a boyfriend-stealing ex-friend with thighs like a baby giraffe, an 8ft hole in the living-room wall, a mother obsessed with boiled-egg peelers, and a builder obsessed with large reservoir fish, Bridget embarks on a spiritual epiphany. Bridget is back. V.g. The third installment in Bridget Jones' journey, Mad About the Boy, is out in October 2013.

Sucked me right in and couldn't pull away from my ears. Charming narrative and wonderful performance. Best of the bunch. Recommend without hesitation.
"Bridget Jones at her finest - V.Good and V.funny"
near the very top, due to Imogen Church's narration talents.
its funny listening to her constant thought diahorrea of self obsession. the intimate self loathing is so a plenty you can't help laughing because it becomes comical what she double questions and obsesses about.
Bridget herself - especially the "oooohhhh god's", "uuurrrgggg's" and drunk bridget. Bridget is closely followed by Mark, Imogen sounds like Colin Firth playing Mark Darcy.
If had time to yes, loved listening to it, but just couldn't dedicate that much time in one go. If could have listening in one sitting would have been even better than how superb it was in pieces.
Am gutted that Imogen hasn't done the follow up in Mad about the boy. Nothing against the current actress who is doing the narration, its just having listening to the 1st 2 books one after the other, it would have been fab to have her voice continuing in the "flow and Zen".
Imogen is an outstanding voice performer and am looking forward to listening to more of her books in the future
I really love this book, it was a great sequel. I am really looking forward to listening to the next one.
