Introduction

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.

Don Tillman and Rosie Jarman are back. The Wife Project is complete, and Don and Rosie are happily married and living in New York. But they’re about to face a new challenge because— surprise!—Rosie is pregnant.

Don sets about learning the protocols of becoming a father, but his unusual research style gets him into trouble with the law. Fortunately his best friend Gene is on hand to offer advice: he’s left Claudia and moved in with Don and Rosie.

As Don tries to schedule time for pregnancy research, getting Gene and Claudia to reconcile, servicing the industrial refrigeration unit that occupies half his apartment, helping Dave the Baseball Fan save his business, and staying on the right side of Lydia the social worker, he almost misses the biggest problem of all: he might lose Rosie when she needs him the most.

Graeme Simsion first introduced these unforgettable characters in The Rosie Project, which NPR called “sparkling entertainment along the lines of Where’d You Go Bernadette and When Harry Met Sally.” The San Francisco Chronicle said, “sometimes you just need a smart love story that will make anyone, man or woman, laugh out loud.” If you were swept away by the book that’s captivated a million readers worldwide, you will love The Rosie Effect.

  "The first book was enough"by puzzled66 (see profile) 08/12/17

I enjoyed the first book, the Rosie Project, due to its novelty. However, this is just more of the same, but more ridiculous and unbelievable. Leave well enough alone and stop with one successful book.... (read more)

I hadn't read the first in the series so it's a little hard for me to adapt at the beginning of the story.

 
  "Not Worth the Time"by SamKelley (see profile) 07/19/17

With so many good, absorbing, engaging, thought-provoking books out there, this fluffy diversion doesn't quite measure up. It's vaguely entertaining, but that's about it. Would make for a great sitcom,... (read more)

 
  "The Rosie Effect"by SandraL (see profile) 01/18/16

Although fun to read, it did also give me an appreciation for people who can't seem to connect with the world in the same way as most of us.
