The Rosie Effect & The Rosie Result
by Graeme Simsion
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 (Evening Standard)
Why it’s on my list: On my last trip to Canada I spontaneously picked up ‘The Rosie Project’, Graeme Simsion’s first book and also the first in this series. It lay unread for 6 months. But as soon as I started I couldn’t put it down. It had me laughing and cringing all the way through. I was happy to discover 2 sequels, which I’ll be reading during my summer vacation.
