Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason

Author: Helen Fielding Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/06/2018

With an introduction by journalist Hadley Freeman 9st 2, cigarettes smoked in front of Mark 0 (v.g.), cigarettes smoked in secret 7, cigarettes not smoked 47 (v.g.). Bridget's second diary ushers in a reformed woman. She is no longer a smoker (well, not much), the wilderness years are over, and she is at last united with man-of-her-dreams Mark Darcy. But things aren't perfect: there's an eight-foot hole in the wall of her flat, she's increasingly worried about a certain boyfriend-stealing beauty, and her friends' mad advice is getting her nowhere - something has to change. And so Bridget decides to embark on a spiritual epiphany to the palm- and magic-mushroom-kissed shores of Thailand. Surely it will be the perfect place to set her life on course once and for all . . . Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason is Bridget at her best: funny, wise, and, as ever, a little bit sloshed. A number-one bestseller by Helen Fielding, it is, alongside Bridget Jones's Diary, a modern classic and one of the funniest books you'll ever read.

La mai bine de douazeci de ani de cand, tanara, umplea salile cinematografelor cu istoria unui amor, Bridget Jones revine cu o noua poveste. Prea multe nu s-au schimbat: Bridget are la fel de multa grija de trupul ei, nici obsesia cu consumul de alcool si gumele cu nicotina n-a disparut. Au mai aparut intre timp comentariile postate pe Facebook, mesajele pe Twitter, injectiile cu Botox si listele cu lucruri pe care le vrea cu tot dinadinsul de la ea. Bridget este acum mama a doi copii si au trecut patru ani de cand Mark Darcy a lasat-o singura, cazand victima intr-un atac cu bomba in Sudan. In situatia neasteptata de a-si cauta un barbat, nesigura in fata atator posibilitati de comunicare, Bridget isi pierde uzul ratiunii, se fastaceste, intra in situatii teribile, amuzante...

With another devastatingly hilarious, ridiculous, unnervingly accurate take on modern womanhood, Bridget Jones is back. (v.g.) Monday 27 January: "e;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."e; Wednesday 5 March: "e;7:08 p.m. Am assured, receptive, responsive woman of substance. My sense of self comes not from other people but . . .from . . .myself? That can't be right."e;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.
