The Rosie Effect – By Graeme Simsion

17 05 2015

It was so good to spend some more time in the world of Don Tillman after reading The Rosie Project last summer.

Don and Rosie are now married and living together in New York City. Don is still as socially awkward as ever, although he’s learnt a few things about what is cultural behaviour and so can sometimes see how he is meant to act. He’s even taken a slight break from the Standardised Meal System, but he hasn’t stopped introducing even the most insignificant of characters by their estimated age and BMI!

I hadn’t remembered a couple of the sub characters so it took me a while to get up to speed with what was going on, but it’s just so enjoyable hearing things from Don’s perspective as his life approaches a pretty major change.

Definitely a worthy sequel, and just as good as the original.
