The Rosie Effect is the charming and hilarious sequel to Graeme Simsion's best-selling 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 embark on a new project....
As Don tries to get to grips with the requirements of starting a family, his unusual research style gets him into trouble. To make matters worse, Don has invited his closest friend to stay with them, but Gene is not exactly the best model for marital happiness. As Don's life with Rosie continues to be unpredictable, he needs to remember that emotional support is just as important as practical expertise.
Join Don and Rosie in the next chapter of their weird and wonderful journey in Graeme Simsion's unmissable new novel, The Rosie Effect.

"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)

Don Tillman rules!? Correct!
I would be expected by social convention to open this review by saying that The Rosie Effect is the best comedy novel EVER. This is not true. A statistically significant survey of a group of literate Australians indicates that The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect are perceived as equally inducing an extreme humour response. This result was further verified by a self-administered psychological profile checklist to ascertain that the respondents to the original survey did not illustrate a bias towards Asperger's-like behaviours. The genetically-based human tendency towards repeating patterns suggests that a third Rosie comedy novel would have a similar effect.
