Debut author Graeme Simsion had a surprise bestseller on his hands last fall with The Rosie Project. On December 30, the Australian author returns with a sequel that promises to be every bit as charming: The Rosie Effect (S&S). Don and Rosie, now married, are living in New York City. Don is pleased with the success of the Wife Project, but now he's about to embark on the Father Project—Rosie is pregnant. But is he too wrapped up in learning how to be a dad and in sorting out his best friend Gene's tumultuous love life to notice that Rosie needs him, too?
Did you read The Rosie Project? Looking forward to this sequel?
Australian author Graeme Simsion’s debut novel, The Rosie Project, is an endearing, unconventional love story filled with off-kilter humor. Don Tillman is a 39-year-old genetics professor and scientist obsessed with life’s little details. All meals are pre-planned and perfectly portioned, each day is precisely scheduled and logic always comes first.
When he decides it’s time to start looking for “the one,” he draws up a hilariously rigid 16-page questionnaire and sets off to find his most compatible match. Instead, he meets Rosie Jarman, a beautiful bartender who chain smokes and never seems to arrive anywhere on time. She needs to find her biological father, and when Don agrees to help, he suddenly finds himself breaking his own rules and developing a very illogical attraction.
