Book Review: The Rosie Effect
Graeme Simsion just has a way of keeping Don, Don. At times I found myself completely frustrated with Don but other times, I’m laughing out loud at his mannerisms and antics. I’m not saying Autistic people are to be laughed at, I mean Don’s outlook on life and how literal he takes everything, even so far as to breakdown human emotion to its basic blocks is humorous.
Don and Rosie’s marriage is put to the test when their relationship changes and true to himself, Don finds it hard to relate. And while he tries to come to terms with this, he sets forth an avalanche of events that he needs to fix before it’s too late. And he could never do it without a little help from his friends.
While I didn’t quite enjoy The Rosie Effect as much as The Rosie Project, I still love Don Tillman and I will gladly read all his adventures, should there be anymore.
