The Rosie Effect The Rosie Effect
by Graeme Simsion
F SIM

“The Rosie Effect” is a MUST read! For all his seriousness, Don Tillman is an absolute riot. The depth of his character and the way the author brings Don to life for the reader is outstanding. I love a book that makes me laugh out loud! Of course, it also brought me close to tears, and drove me crazy with frustration at some of the characters’ shenanigans. I sincerely hope to see more from Graeme Simsion soon–I can’t wait to see how Don and Rosie fare on the next “project”.
