Book Review: ‘The Rosie Effect’, Graeme Simsion



⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

For those of you who have read, The Rosie Project, you will be thrilled to hear there is a follow on with The Rosie Effect, which is equally charming.

The main character, Don Tillman, a geneticist, is now married to Rosie Jarman, a medical student. Their lives are further changed by their move from Melbourne to New York. It is never explicitly divulged that Don has Asperger’s Syndrome, but his way of life is so unique, he can be nothing but. He learns how to deal with things, but in the process gets himself into some very difficult situations. The caring side of Don is so carefully crafted, and the funny incidents continue to amuse the reader.

Trying to protect his wife from stress, the web of deceit grows, leaving him in danger of losing his job, deportation, and worst of all, losing Rosie.

Difference is cherished throughout this story. For any of you who are, or have met anyone, on the autistic spectrum, you’ll love this book.

    The Rosie Project was a bestselling romcom that became Bill Gates’s favourite novel.

    The highly anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestselling novel The Rosie Project, starring the same extraordinary couple now living in New York and unexpectedly expecting their first child. Get ready to fall in love all over again.

      Thank you for that Mihrank! What a lovely review! We feel particularly excited as the author is from Melbourne!! With Bill Gates recommending him, anything could happen!
