Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In his bestselling debut, The Rosie Project, Simsion introduced the delightfully original character of Don Tillman, an Australian geneticist with Asperger’s syndrome who sets out to find the perfect wife by using the scientific method. In the sequel, set in New York, Don takes on impending fatherhood in the same clumsy yet endearing way, with results both funny and moving. This charming new chapter in the Tillman chronicles leaves you hoping it won’t be the last.” People
“Simsion’s tale offers a playful look at a how a family of two fare when a third…enters the mix…There’s a moral to this quirky story: The best things in life can’t be planned on a spreadsheet.” Good Housekeeping
“This is a very funny book, possibly the funniest this year as Don organizes his and Rosie’s life in New York…Every thought creates a smile for the reader who can’t help responding to Don’s comedic behavior…We can only hope the third installment is lurking around to produce another chuckle-filled triumph.” Sydney Morning Herald
“Don and Rosie are back!…Readers who loved the first book are in for another treat.” Library Journal (starred review)
"The Rosie Effect is a celebration of the best attributes to be found in a friend, a husband, or a father, regardless of the way they are expressed.” Booklist (starred review)
“We hear plenty of stories about falling in love. What we don’t often get, especially in romantic comedies, is the idea that marriage just might be the beginning of the love story, not its culmination. As The Rosie Effect shows, sometimes it’s possible, and even necessary, to fall in love with your partner over and over again…Many sequels falter, but this one is pitch perfect. It’s cute, but it isn’t cheesy. It’s extremely funny and clever, but not at the expense of the characters or as an insult to the reader…This book isn’t really about pregnancy or living with autism or moving to a new city. It’s about having your world rocked when you really, truly have to compromise with another person. It’s about how tricky that is, how hilarious that can be, and how beautiful it is when you pull it off.” BookPage
