Not As Good As the First....
on January 1, 2015
It's still classic Bridget Jones, and who doesn't like her! But quite honestly this sequel wasn't as funny as the first. It was a little more disjointed than the first and while her relationship troubles were funnier in the original, I just found the ups and downs so much sadder this time around.
That being said, if you've read the original, definitely worth making your own decision on this one. I had read both of these books over 10 years ago so decided to re-read them this past year to see how I felt about them after time. They held up as Helen Fielding is very creative and funny but Edge of Reason was not as laugh out loud as the original. I remember laughing out loud quite a bit in the original where as in this one I thought the drunk Christmas cards were the funniest scene. Not as many memorable Bridget moments.
