Description-

  • 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 audiobook that's captivated listeners worldwide, you will love The Rosie Effect.

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    February 23, 2015
    This sequel to 2013’s The Rosie Project finds brilliant but socially inept Australian geneticist Don Tillman married to medical grad student Rosie Jarman and living in N.Y.C. Don’s orderly life is upended when Rosie gets pregnant and Don’s friend Gene moves in with them. Much of the humor involves Don’s mishaps as he struggles to manage things in a logical way, while misinterpreting social situations and taking
    people’s words too literally (he doesn’t get sarcasm, rhetorical questions, or hyperbole). In the wrong hands, this
    type of character might come across as unemotional or cold, but Australian
    narrator O’Grady strikes the perfect chord, conveying Don’s earnest desire
    to do the right thing, his befuddlement when he messes up, and his genuine love for Rosie—all with Don’s rigid thought process and likable quirkiness. O’Grady also does a good job differentiating between different characters: he speaks in a higher register for women and uses a tough-guy voice for a cop, and even makes a somewhat successful attempt at a New York accent for several characters. This is an excellent narration of a highly entertaining story. A S&S hardcover.

  • AudioFile Magazine The sequel to THE ROSIE PROJECT is almost as accomplished as its predecessor, and narrator Dan O'Grady is every bit as engaging as he was the first time around. Don Tillman, a geneticist with Asperger's syndrome, and his new wife, Rosie, move to New York City from Australia. O'Grady deftly depicts Tillman in all of his well-intentioned awkwardness as he advises the pregnant Rosie on the do's and don'ts of her condition. Poor Rosie is nearly at her breaking point, a state of mind that O'Grady captures with humor and realism. Listeners will laugh out loud when Tillman comes to the attention of the NYPD as he tries to observe youngsters in a park to better prepare for fatherhood. Seldom has a "new dad" book been more delightful. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine
