Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Even Better!"

    I don't feel the desire to re-listen to a book very often, but I did with this one. I enjoyed Imogen's version of Helen. Delicious! I caught myself from time to time repeating out loud phrases. This audio book is like a quirky best friend! Enjoy!

    "Edge of Reason: read every decade!"

    I read this book when I was 28 but laughed even harder while listening to it at 42. Funny and witty with characters you'll enjoy following.

    "Bridget being Bridget..."
    What made the experience of listening to Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason the most enjoyable?

    I loved this book! It was an excellent follow-up. Great continuing storyline. Additionally, Imogen Church's voice truly captures the essence of Bridget.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bridget, of course. She is a total mess, but that's what I love about her. She is totally relatable.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Nothing, Imogen Church was fabulous!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both. There were parts that made me laugh (Bridget being Bridget in typical Bridget fashion) and others that made me cry (every tender moment Bridget shared with Mark).

    "A surprise"
    Any additional comments?

    I have read the other Bridget Jone's diaries, and hooted with laughter, but when this one started it was difficult to listen to, and so different from the others. I really wondered where it would go, and how. But what a beautiful culmination of the series. I laughed.. I cried (a lot), and in the end I was enormously satisfied.

    "Loved it."

    I loved the story but the narration made it really come to life. I adore Bridget jones and this book held up just as well with the first one. Helen fielding makes me laugh and cheer but above all, makes me realise I am not alone. Thanks Bridget.

    Story
    "Bridget Jones at her finest - V.Good and V.funny"
    Where does Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    near the very top, due to Imogen Church's narration talents.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Imogen Church – was your favourite?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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

    Story
    "A light but funny read."

    I chose this book because I had trouble sleeping and I needed to read something light and not too heavily engaging. This book is funny witty and the characters in it are a Little eccentric. Recommend this book for anybody who is seeking a light read whilst on holiday or needing to relax after work with something not too difficult to follow. I rated this book for out of five stars because some of the storyline doesn't change its course very much. Imogen The narrator is totally amazing at doing all the voices. I particularly like her voice for Magda, Mark, Rebecca, and Bridget's mum. They will surely make you laugh!
