October 2014 Book of the Month.
The simplicity of the writing here has a magical quality that carries you effortlessly from page to page. If you have not met Don Tillman, Professor of Genetics in The Rosie Project then you are in for a treat and I do believe this book will be your favourite. If you have read the first then the freshness of Don’s voice will be familiar to you and so not as much of a delight as the first was. Now Don and Rosie are married and living in New York expecting their first baby. Expecting is the wrong word for Bud (baby under development) was not expected, it is a complete surprise to Don, not planned and therefore difficult to accept. The book is about whether he and Rosie feel he will make a suitable father. It’s absolutely beautiful. A charming exploration of human foibles, human nature and human triumphs.
The Rosie Effect is the wonderfully charming and hilarious sequel to Graeme Simsion's bestselling debut novel The Rosie Project.
With the Wife Project complete, Don settles into a new job and married life in New York. But it's not long before certain events are taken out of his control and it's time to emabark on a new project...
As Don tries to get to grips with the requirements of starting a family, his unusual reasearch style soon gets him into trouble. To make matters more difficult, Don has invited his closest friend to stay with them, but Gene is not exactly a prime example of marital happiness, and as his life with Rosie continues to be unpredictable Don needs to remember that emotional support is just as important as his practical expertise.
In addition, some of our Reader Review Panel were also lucky enough to read and review this title.

'Funny, endearing, and pure, wonderful escapism.' Independent
'Don Tillman is one of the most endearing, charming and fascinating literary characters I have met in a long time.' The Times
