Book Review: The Rosie Effect

rosie effectBook: Rosie Effect
Author: Graeme Simsion
Rating: ★★★★☆

The Rosie Project was one of my favourite books I have read this year, so I had high hopes for the Rosie Effect, and I was NOT disappointed. I actually think I might have liked this one a LITTLE bit more than the first. *gasp* I know crazy right?

This book had many of the same shenanigans that the first book had. Don still described people by their BMI, he still over-analyzed everything, he put his foot in his mouth more than once, and he may or may not have got in trouble with the law….twice! 😉

I think the reason I enjoyed this a little more was because of the plot. Parenting! I for some reason find enjoyment reading about couples going through a pregnancy. They are usually comical and every experience is completely different. If you have read “The Rosie Project” then you can ONLY imagine how Don is going to handle this news. Mr. Over-Prepared, Shows- No-Emotion, Don! Yup! Its interesting and frustrating all at the same time.

Honestly, if I had someone like Don in my life I am pretty sure I would go a little crazy, but he is entertaining to read about. You know who ISN’T entertaining to read about? Gene! I still dislike him just as much as in the first book. Although he did redeem himself a “little” bit in this book, he is still a pretty big jackass!

So there you have it some of my thoughts on the book! I couldn’t give it a full 5 stars because there were some things towards the ending of the book that frustrated me.

If you enjoyed the Rosie Project then I definitely recommend you check this one out too!
