Críticas:

Funny, endearing, and pure, wonderful escapism ( Independent on The Rosie Project)

Don Tillman is one of the most endearing, charming and fascinating literary characters I have met in a long time ( The Times)

Marvellous. Don Tillman is as awkward and confusing a narrator as he is lovable and charming ( John Boyne, author of The Boy In the Striped Pyjamas)

A poignant, funny novel about how you don't find love; it finds you ( Glamour on The Rosie Project)

Warm-hearted and perfectly pitched, with profound themes that are worn lightly, this very enjoyable read promises to put Don Tillman on the comic literary map somewhere between Mr Pooter and Adrian Mole ( Guardian)

An extraordinarily clever, funny, and moving book about being comfortable with who you are and what you're good at . . . This is one of the most profound novels I've read in a long time ( Bill Gates on The Rosie Project)

Don Tillman (...) is a gem, an empirical laser trained on human shortcomings, especially male ones, and even more especially his own. He is also utterly charming in his lack of guile and his belief in improvability. Through him, Simsion deals with issues of nature, nurture, gender, free will and the vagaries of the human heart with a deceptively light touch . . . blissfully comic ( Evening Standard)

Quirky and sweetly funny, you will want to join the Don Tillman fan club all over again ( Sun on Sunday)

An intelligent piece of fun ( The Times)

A wholly absorbing, vivid read that leaves you pining to be reunited with its characters every time you put it down - if you are able to ( The Independent)

If you loved The Rosie Project, I don't see how you could fail to love this funny, poignant, sparkler of a novel too ( Woman & Home)

Reseña del editor:

The Rosie Effect is the charming and hilarious sequel to Graeme Simsion's bestselling debut novel The Rosie Project.

Until a year ago, forty-one-year-old geneticist Don Tillman had never had a second date. Until he met Rosie, 'the world's most incompatible woman'. Now, living in New York City, they have survived ten months and ten days of marriage.

But though Rosie has taught him the joys of unscheduled sex and spontaneous meal planning, life is still not plain sailing for Don. Not least with the sudden arrival of his best friend Gene, serial philanderer, who takes up residence on their sofa.

Then Rosie drops the mother of all bombshells. And soon Don must face her hormonally induced irrational behaviour as he prepares for the biggest challenge of his previously ordered life - at the same time as dodging deportation, prosecution and professional disgrace.

Is Don Tillman ready to become the man he always dreamed of being? Or will he revert to his old ways and risk losing Rosie forever?

Join Don and Rosie in the next chapter of their weird and wonderful journey in Graeme Simsion's unmissable new novel, The Rosie Effect.
