The Rosie Effect

The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion

Until a year ago, forty-one-year-old geneticist Don Tillman had never had a second date. Until he met Rosie, 'the world's most incompatible woman'. Now, living in New York City, they have survived ten months and ten days of marriage. But though Rosie has taught him the joys of unscheduled sex and spontaneous meal planning, life is still not plain sailing for Don. Not least with the sudden arrival of his best friend Gene, serial philanderer, who takes up residence on their sofa. Then Rosie drops the mother of all bombshells. And soon Don must face her hormonally induced irrational behaviour as he prepares for the biggest challenge of his previously ordered life - at the same time as dodging deportation, prosecution and professional disgrace. Is Don Tillman ready to become the man he always dreamed of being? Or will he revert to his old ways and risk losing Rosie forever?

Firstly, I loved this book. I read it on my train journeys which lasted over 4 hours, so I practically devoured the book during these journeys. If you don't already know, this book is the sequel of 'The Rosie Project' which was a Richard and Judy pick, a few years ago! It's a book that let's you leave this world and enter the adorable world of Don. He is genuinely one of the cutest characters I have ever read about, so if you need a distraction or stress relief or just something to warm your heart, this book (and the first one) is a definite winner.

This sounds like my type of book! I'll have to pick up The Rosie Project and then read this one after if I really like it :)

Ooh this sounds exactly like my type of book. There's nothing worse than reading one that doesn't make you totally forget about day to day life, I want pure escapism in a book. Love the sound of this one, would you say you need to read The Rosie Project before you start it to be able to follow the story? Lovely post lady :)

Yes, do! I think you'd enjoy it :) xx

I'd say read the first one first because it explains more about the main character but you'd definitely enjoy them both, lovely :) xx
