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.
Picking up where The Rosie Project left off, The Rosie Effect is a fun, hilarious, and poignant read. “Don Tillman helps us believe in possibility, makes us proud to be human beings, and the bonus is this: he keeps us laughing like hell” (Matthew Quick, author of The Silver Linings Playbook). -- Simon & Schuster
Earlier this year, I reviewed THE ROSIE EFFECT by Graeme Simsion. This novel is the followup to the huge hit THE ROSIE PROJECT (which had around two million readers), and fans of Don Tillman will definitely want to see what happens after he "wins" the girl. Don discovers that life with Rosie is far from simple when they find themselves expecting a baby, and Don does his best to fully research what it takes to be a father. Of course, Don stumbles along the way; and his research methods are a bit unorthodox... and hilarious for readers!
I am a huge fan of Don Tillman and can't recommend these funny but heartwarming books. You can
visit www.RosieBooks.com for videos, excerpts, and reading group guides from both THE ROSIE PROJECT and THE ROSIE EFFECT. My book club read THE ROSIE PROJECT last year and had a fun time discussing not only the book but also what we would look for in a partner.
