The Rosie EffectDe (autor) Graeme Simsion
en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 26 Feb 2015
Forty-one-year-old geneticist Don Tillman had never had a second date before he met Rosie.
Now, living in New York City, they have survived ten months and ten days of marriage, even if Don has had to sacrifice standardized meals and embrace unscheduled sex.
But then Rosie drops the mother of all bombshells. And Don must prepare for the biggest challenge of his previously ordered life - while 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 for ever?

Rights have been sold in forty-two countries and both The Rosie Project and the sequel The Rosie Effect are now bestselling novels worldwide.
Graeme lives in Australia with his wife Anne, a professor of psychiatry and published author, and their two children.
Don Tillman is the protagonist who keeps on giving. He 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 . . . blissfully comic
Simsion is very smart at negotiating the line between a satire of the whole modern baby-rearing neurosis and drawing intriguing characters . . . this book is an intelligent piece of fun
Offers plenty more laugh-out-loud moments
Touching and entertaining
Quirky and sweetly funny, you will want to join the Don Tillman fan club all over again
Genuinely heartwarming, truly endearing, plenty of LOLs. You may end up a blubbing wreck
There is much to love in this comedy of errors
If you loved The Rosie Project, I don't see how you could fail to love this funny, poignant sparkler of a novel too
Equally heart-warming and hilarious
The hilarious follow-up to The Rosie Project, one of the best novels I've read in ages. There's no sophomore slump here . . . It's a funny novel that also made me think about relationships. A sweet, entertaining, and thought-provoking book
